It should be. What do you like the most about ie80S, and what would you want the upgrade to do? Depending on those answers, I could point to what is the most likely candidate for your upgrade
Well.it has been pointed out that the Xelento has more of everything that the ie80 and ie80S have,so that sounds great.With the ie80S,I really am listening to albums I've know for many years,and hearing previously hidden details,revelatory! My understanding is that the Xelento has a similar "romantic" and warm tone as the ie80 series,with extra detail without being sibilant or piercing in the treble region,important!.I have a pretty wide range of music files,Beatles,Stones,through to jazz,African,soundtracks,etc..Everything sounds great with the the ie80S,full,warm and detailed,with the same wide soundstage as it's predecessors.Do I need to upgrade?! Many years ago,I had vinyl systems,and each upgrade,eventually ending with a LinnSondek LP12,Naim Monoblocks,and Linn Isobariks rig,brought added and extra level of details.This is what the ie80S have brought to the table,more of everything.I will not be drawn down the upgraditus rabbit hole,plus my ears aren't so young! I do like DD iems.Would the Xelento be a worthwhile upgrade and end game iem for me? Certainly,the ie80S have shown to me what's possible,should I consider moving up a notch or two.
Many thanks for taking the time and trouble to consider my dilemma! It's very much appreciated!

Well, I've owned IE80 and IE80s for many years, and owned and listened many other IEMs.
The only weak points of the IE80s for me are fit, noise isolation and flexibility.
If your fit is good the sound for me is unrivaled: bass detail, attack speed and subtleties of the mids are top notch and hold their ground against multi driver more expensive IEMs.
Concerning noise isolation it is below average, so if you listen to them in noisy environment you could probably do better.
Concerning the flexibility, their particular sound signature, which makes them suited for Jazz, Classical etc, also makes them unsuited for hard rock and metal, at least for me.
So to conclude:
- upgrade? for your music genres I doubt you will find better IEMs. The only noticeable upgrade would come from a good pair of speakers in a room with decent acoustics.
- better noise isolation? sony n3ap do better, but are inferior in bass detail and comfort
- listen to treble rich music like hard rock or metal? I would go with a different pair, not necessarily high budget (sony MH755 already do a good job for these genres).

I'm lucky because I get a perfect fit with the Senn. large foam tips,plus I have two Hybrid cables.It means everything is interchangeable between the 80 and the 80s.With a different model,I'd need to consider finding tips that fit,as well as aftermarket cables.At some point,I may well get a Sony DAP and go balanced,but that's just another Forza cable,simple.
I don't listen to hard rock or heavy metal,but they do sound great with Led Zepp,Kings of Leon,etc..In short,everything sounds great on them.Smooth,detailed,and I hesitate to say it,but truly analogue.Just like the good old days!
Anyone sitting on the fence about buying or moving up to the ie80s,really,do not hesitate.They're a big step up from the ie80,which were good anyway.I can only think that any negative reviews are from people who just didn't like their sound signature,haven't heard them properly driven,or didn't burn them in.I had mine playing for more than 100 hours before listening for the first time,and they've now settled in nicely.
May thanks for your input,it's very much appreciated.From time to time, we all need someone to tell us how lucky we truly are.All the best!

100% agree. BTW I already moved a step up to 400 eur entry levels hifi speakers+amp, but rarely listen to them as they do not fit in my pocket! :wink:

A message to invite you to request the new IE80s tested at https://www.rtings.com/
Attention to select the new IE80s and the old IE80
If we pile up votes maybe we will see it move up in the rankings of the preferred gear to be tested
