    Sennheiser IE80 alternatives?

    While I love my IE80, it's been my main for 4 years now, and it hasn't been the most comfortable when traveling and commuting. The slightly stiff cable hasn't been too comfortable over my ears with my glasses. I tried looking for an alternative cable, but I don't know if I could trust third...

    Looking for new IEMS ($400/$500)

    Hi, so i recently lost my sennheiser ie80 so i have to find a new pair of IEMS. The things i want in an IEM are a very huge soundstage as that makes me enjoy it more and a bit of bass. Always had the feeling that with the ie80 i did not get the bang for buck I wanted. I did not like the mids and...

    Reduce hizzing/static noise with impedance adapter?

    I bought a new phone, the Xiaomi mi a1, and it has a built-in amp with 10V. I also have the Sennheiser IE80, with an impedance of 16 Ohm. The problem is that whenever I use those two with each other, a very annoying hizzing/static noise is to hear. The same with other headphones with low...

    Sennheiser IE 800 Brand New and Sealed!

    Edit: IE800 available again since previous deal fell through. I purchased all of these back in August, forgetting I'm not really an IEM guy. Moral of the story, don't order on Amazon when you're intoxicated with gift cards to burn. All are brand new, sealed in the box, never opened. I'll...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Hi all, Haven't posted much as I've been pretty happy with the Senn IE80s over the last couple of years. But I'm getting a bit fed up with having to replace the cable every 8-12 months. The IE80s are fantastic sound-wise, and I have custom-moulded sleeves which give a wonderful fit and great...

    Sennheiser IE80 vs Fender FXA5 Pro vs RHA MA750

    Hello all, I am currently going through the process of deciding on my next IEM (see this thread) and I'm having trouble making a decision between the Sennheiser IE80s and the Fender FXA5 Pros, mainly because there's nowhere for me to demo the Fenders and there aren't very many reviews out there...

    IE80 again or upgrade?

    Hey all, After exactly 5 years, my IE80s are very worn out and the eartip twists off easily - though probably easily fixable if I just superglue it a bit as it twists back on fine and doesn't come off if I twist it counterclockwise off. Previously it was held by some rubber on the inside so...
