I've never actually owned a pair of what could be classified as real earphones. I've owned several pairs of buds that generally have a bad on this forum due to just not knowing any better. Namely several pair of Bose IE2's which broke every 5 months, and a pair of Beats Solo's which killed my ears.
So in light of discovering this forum, I decided to purchase a pair of Sennheiser IE8's. They're supposed to be here sometime tomorrow afternoon and I would love to have a heads up about what to expect. Especially comparing them to my previous sets of headphones.
Also I've heard that IE8's have isolation issues due to the stock tips they come with. Anyone have any tips they can recommend?
