    In-ear phones recommendations? Willing to spend up to £30

    This is for a friend who uses her ipod buds at the moment but she says they hurt her ears so she would like something more comfortable... she's not really a sound quality nut (she was interested in the lady gaga 'phones!), just wants some pretty good in-ears for her ipod... listens to stuff like...

    Anyone else feel that vocals on the IE8's are veiled?

    I eq my ie8's on my Cowon s9. Less intrusive bass and the veil is removed. My new eq is in my sig if you happen to have an s9.

    Real or fake sony hybrids?

    Mine arrived the other day from howtorich2003 and I didn't really like them with my IE8. Just made the dark sound even darker... back to stock tips.

    Is the RE0 better than the RE2?

    I'm in a similar boat to the OP. I like the RE2 sound and don't like my IE8 as much as I thought... what I like about the RE2 are the smooth mids and clean neutral sound.

    Prefer RE2 to IE8?

    My replacement re2 arrived yesterday after being a few months without them. For 2 months I've been using just my ie8 and thought the sound sig was really good: natural sound, great soundstage etc. Then when I got my new replacement re2, the sound actually surprised me - in a good way. Coming...

    Went to look for some hydrogen peroxidize for the 'phones earwax problem, no luck. Tried 3 different pharmacy's. Only one had a 6% solution, said they don't do 3% any more so I thought I'd better not chance it, might corrode the metal. :S

    Sennheiser IE8 Impressions Thread

    I think my ie8 burned in more last night. The soundstage just became huge! Instruments were very well defined with great clarity, more-so than I remember before. I think I'm about 225hrs in and that's quite a wild guess. Maybe the earwax didn't affect my ie8 bad after-all...

    Real or fake sony hybrids?

    well i bought these ones even tho i think they're fake. only £3.50 so not much to lose really. Replacement Silicon Earbud Ear Cushion Sony EP-EX10A MK on eBay (end time 07-Mar-10 11:30:23 GMT) will find out in about 2 weeks if they're better than the stock buds which came with my ie8.

    Sennheiser IE8 Impressions Thread

    I let my brother try my ie8 today and I got it back full of ear wax. I tried cleaning it as much as I could with some kitchen paper but I'm worried that some wax got inside the grill... I mean it was a lot of wax. I'm pretty annoyed about it but what's done is done. Didn't someone post a...

    Sennheiser IE8 Impressions Thread

    With all the talk on tips making a big difference to the IE8 sound, I might try out the Sony Hybrids... tbh I'm quite happy with the medium sized stock tips though - they fit nicely into my ears and sound pretty amazing, although I have to wear my IE8 downwards for best sound and isolation which...
