I've been using below average headphones and IEMs... then I thought it's time for me to get myself a decent headphones because I love listening to classical and soundtracks. I started looking at $200~ range headphones like HD598, and TripleFi 10 IEMs... but after I tried out my friend's HD598 and HD650 then I realized I prefer IEMs over over-the-ear headphones, so I decided to spend more and find myself a nice pair of IEMs that is at least on par if not better than HD650 in SQ wise. After a week of research, reading feedback, reviews, comparison between Westone 4R, Shure SE535, IE80, I settled down on IE80. I was a bit skeptical if I can hear any noticeable different with these $450 IEMs than my other crappy ones.... but after I listened my FLAC collection with IE80 thru HT OMEGA eCLARO 7.1 Channel PCI Express x1 Sound Card, I can tell you, when people say they can now hear what weren't there before with these IEMs, it is TRUE. I am truly amazed. The earbud tips are completely disappointment. They are cheap, no better than the ones selling on ebay for 2-3 bucks. Bad noise isolation and very uncomfortable to wear if I listen them for hours. But then I fixed those problems by replacing the tips with Comply memory foam earbuds.

Update: These earphones do require burn-in period. After 100 hours of listening, I must say I find these sound very good, even though I now own a pair of IE800. I had a chance to compare a burned-in IE80 and brand new IE80, the brand new IE80 sounded muffled, lack of clarity and details. SQ is quite terrible even compared to my burned in GR07 BE(also my favorite IEMs).

Style Name: IE80 HeadphoneProduct Packaging: Standard Packaging
I have upgraded from a set of Klipsch X10i to these Sennheiser ie80 and I am delighted.
You will see from reviews by audiophiles that Sennheiser did correct the faults of the preceding ie8 with the ie80 ... No need to correct the lower end sound signature of these earphones with the equalizer of your system, as was often the case with the ie8 model.
These earphones are very confortable, can be worn in bed, on a sun lounger as they fit snugly inside the ear (not sticking out like the Klipsch X10i) ... the wire is removable so any breakage there would just require an easy wire replacement ... No cable friction noise to speak of either... I have actually sourced an original Sennheiser replacement cable for the older ie8i model (with built-in microphone and controls for iphone)to fit to my new ie80 and it all works perfectly with my iphone 4s.
Their build quality is very good, no obvious weakness...
The sound quality is just awesome, very clear and detailed, with a wide soundstage with most music genres (jazz, country...). I would just add that they are more "fun" than "neutral", which suits my taste better, but without being too bass heavy, at least at the default lowest bass setting (each earpiece can have its bass level adjusted with a small screwdriver, for those who love more bass). They sounded good out of the box and great after 30+ hours of burn-in...
Overall, I have no hesitations in recommending them !

Anyone aspiring to be an audiophile would have heard the name of these IEMs, they are one of the very best around and only a few are in the same league as this one.
The IE80 was released a few years ago, following the IE8 which was for a long time, the best that Sennheiser had to offer in this regard. Lets cut the introduction short.

This review is not an Audiophile perspective. Its just my experience after one years usage. While it may not give you side by side comparisons with rival products, it will give you an idea of what the IE80 truly is.

Short version of review:
------------------------
If I had to tell you about the IE80 in one line, then I would say, you will not be disappointed by these IEMs no matter what. Sound quality and build quality are top notch. Bass and mids are fixed from the IE8, which was the main complaint of certain users. Sound stage is excellent. Metallic finish is awesome. No complaints in any department. It retails at an MSRP of INR 29,990 at Sennheiser India's online shop. But I got this from my dealer for around 19k, though I was seriously willing to pay an extra 5-6k just for getting it on time. My dealer convinced me to wait and it took a couple of weeks which was kind of a letdown. So do some research depending on your priorities for the money before you pull the trigger.

Pros: Amazing Sound Quality, Tunable Bass, Replaceable Cables, Great Micro-phonics, Excellent build quality, Amazing Looks, Value for Money, Great customer service, 2 years guarantee.

Cons: The housing is a bit huge. If you seek isolation, the stock tips will not cut it for you.

Just got these. bought used and it came with the ie8i cable for use with my iPhone 5. Since they were six months used, I didn't need to mess with any burn-in to rule out the possibility whether burn-in actually helps or not. I have Monster Turbine Pro Gold, Turbine Coppers, Sony MDEX700, and B&W C-5's. These have a soundstage that blows the others away. It sounds like I have on-ear headphones, the sound is so immense.
The bass still hits home, while the Turbines may have a stronger bass, but the ie80 clarity of the mid and highs is perfect; better than any of the others. The low, mid, and high's are perfectly balanced with each instrument not blending into each other. This will inspire you to listen to your collection again.
The controls on the ie8i cable that can be used on ie80's are easy to feel and use. The microphone and controls come up the left side. I prefer the right, but it works just the same. the microphone is still not of a Plantronics Voyager Pro or Legend, or of Jawbone noise cancelling ability, but its certainly usable for a road warrior that's in and out of a lot of different places while talking to customers on my phone. I have yet to hear a complaint. I was also bent over in my van using a RugDoctor steam cleaner/vaccuum and decided to go ahead and take a call from my wife. Granted, she clearly could hear the steam cleaner right next to me, but we were nevertheless still able to have a conversation! Pretty impressive. That would've been entirely impossible with the Turbine Copper ControlTalk. The latter was so miserable in terms of complaints from the other end that I had to return them. The microphone on this comes up around adams apple height, so not too low like the Klipsch 10i.
