From the Manufacturer
Looking as classy as they sound, the Sennheiser CX 880 in-ear headphones offer lifelike sound quality and a custom fit that feels like they were made for your ears. Co-designed with BMW DesignWorksUSA, the CX 880 provides aggressive noise blocking thanks to its close-fitting ergonomic design, which also channels cabling away from your ear.
These ear-canal, noise-isolating headphones use a dynamic speaker and a specially tuned transducer that reproduces a transparent, clear audible image. And you can keep your audio player in your pocket and still control playback volume with the included in-line rotary volume adjuster. The cleaning tool and ear-debris-guards protect your investment, while the included carrying case makes it easy to bring along wherever you roam.

I've been wearing these for around two hours now and barely notice them. The silicone earbuds are soft and very comfortable.
Sound quality will vary for people with each person's choice in music and earbud fit, but this here's my take on things. I love that these headphones provide balanced sound, because I listen to a wide variety of music, which artificially bass heavy headphones will ruin. They provide clear sound across the range of highs and lows and seem to have a good sound stage.
These seem to provide slightly more isolation than the CX400s did for me. If foam earbuds were included, that'd greatly help with the isolation. If people want better sound isolation, they should look for triple flange ear tips, which are common on models from Etymotic and some others.
More on microphonics
I could see these being a bit distracting to exercise/walk around in, because the microphonics become more pronounced when anything comes into contact with the buds themselves. Wise use of the included clip takes care of most, if not all, of the microphonics from the cord for me. These can also be worn over the ear (rotate the bud so that the cord will go over the top of your ear), which will take care microphonics, though that may not be comfortable for everyone.Read more ›
Thank you for your feedback. For exercise use, we recommend the CX 680i, as it was designed for working out and will minimize microphonics (because it was in fact designed for sports), and is sweat proof with a stay-put fit.
The sound is just great. You can get earbuds with better sound, but it won't be cheap. I listen to all kinds of music including many genres of popular music as well as classical, and the sound with all is very smooth. The highs are very open and clean. Some listeners may prefer to slightly boost the midrange. The bass, including the deep bass, is solid without using any bass boost. I hear a small peak in the mid-bass. I make very *slight* adjustments in my iTunes equalizer to make the already great sound a bit better.
The fit will depend on how well the included selection of tips fit your ears. In my case, I found tips that fit very well. They stay put very snugly, and they're very comfortable even for longer listening sessions. The shape of the ear pieces is angled, and that works out very well. The way the cord exits the ear pieces is also pretty good.
These are designed to be good for noise isolation, and Sennheiser pulls this off really well. Note that noise isolation is different from noise cancellation, but the end result is very similar.Read more ›
When I tried the CX 880 out though, I was somewhat disappointed.
First, the cons:
The fit is poor for a set in this price range. Unfortunately, fit is everything with earbuds. There are 3 pairs of sized rubber tips, but they're the same unremarkable crappy jellyfish shaped tips that you'd find on a $30 set of buds. I placed the triple flange tips from my Etymotics on them and that helped a little, but the left earbud still doesn't seal well even with the largest provided tip. There really should be more tip options, sizes, and styles included for this price.
The case was also a disappointment. It's a well constructed case and a good idea in theory, but getting the earbuds and the volume control bar to both fit in the slot while wrapping the cord around can prove to be an exercise in frustration. If the volume bar wasn't so long and inflexible this might not be a problem.
Speaking of the volume bar, reducing or increasing the volume will cause the sound in either side to cut out intermittently. If left at full volume both sides work fine, but if you reduce it and keep it at one of the affected levels you risk getting one-sided performance from this set.Read more ›
