    Bought my first pair of IEM's. Is this not for everyone?

    Hi, I just bought UE 900's coming from my Sennheiser HD555's. I don't know if it's just me, but I can't stand them. It hasn't been a full 24 hours yet and I've already gone back to my Sennheisers. Is there something I'm missing here? Here are my gripes. 1. Given all the tips, I couldn't find...

    Sennheiser MX 985 for 72$ ?

    Haven't found many reviews of 985, mostly 980 but from what I gather, these earbuds are a steal for this price?   A little background. I've been using Sennheiser MX460 for years with a short period using Sony MDR-AS30(jack broke). Used it with iRiver T10 and recently Samsung Galaxy Note...

    Earphone headaches

    Hi all, could use some help with this issue I'm having.  I was using CX300b earphones for years and recently upgraded to CX985.  They sound great and all, but it doesn't take too long in the day when they leave me with headaches.  So I tried lowering the volume, it helps a tad but still...

    Logitech Ultimate Ears 600vi -vs- Sennheiser CX 985

    Detail, sound stage are important to me. Just wondering which one you would pick, current price difference notwithstanding.

    Please recommend IEMs and EarBuds based on this criteria

    I have Sennheiser CX95, and while they are very clear and treble is great, I find the bass is lacking, the mids are also quiet and overall they sound distant, I like more in-your-face sound, like Grado.     Price limit: $150, but can stretch to $200, if there is something special.  ...

    Sennheiser CX985 or CX890i?

    Hi all,   New poster here with a quick query. I have been through a number of different IEM headphones now, started back in the day with the CX300's, have since tried Monster Turbines (the lowest level set), Beats Tours, Sol Republic Amp HD's, and another Sennheiser CX... I think the 870's. ...

    Are the Sennheiser CX980's worth it?

    Had my eye on these for the last few days, and seem to be a good choice for the £100-200 range.   Does anyone have an opinion on these?   I know it's a very subjective question, but is there anything better for the price?   Thanks in advance!
