    "good earphone"
    Pros - good SQ,good bass,excellent soundstage
    Cons - expensive
    i just bought the ie80 today to replace my old ie7. the moment i listen to the ie80 i was glad that i bought it. i tried to play an 320kbps mp3 on my ipod touch (no amp) and i hear a lot more detail than my ie7 and it also have a wider soundstage. i have burn it in for around 5 hour now and i will see whether there were improvement after 20hour. overall im very satisfied

    Pros - Bass, Soundstage, detachable cables, light weight, build
    Cons - Fatigue, price
    These are a very good dynamic IEM, and when I say dynamic, I'm not just referring to the type of driver. The sound is very forward, very exciting at first, and I was immediately struck with the immense sound-stage. The drivers are very responsive and demonstrate better speed than I expected. If you love any form of electronica, buy them. I was hard pressed to find fault with any specific aspect of the sound while I was listening and the bass is incredible. However, I was quickly fatigued by listening to them and afterwards my head felt full of grit. I gave them about 50hrs of burn-in and used no EQ while listening.
     
    Because of the light weight, I had no problems getting a comfortable fit with the included eartips. The included case is heavy and possibly worthless if you go with a Comply eartip.
     
    I really wanted to love them considering the bargain price (refurb), but in the end I sold them.
