From the Manufacturer
Combining top-quality sound with a stylish modern finish, the Sennheiser CX 980 ear canal headphones provide detailed, lifelike sound reproduction with a wide frequency response. Featuring exquisite metal-crafted stainless steel design elements, the CX 980 also offers a variety of finely tuned ergonomic design elements, including a rotating headphone plug that lets you choose a straight pin or 90 degree angle.
The large selection of seven adapters not only allows the earphones to be adapted perfectly to every ear size, it also enables you to change the sound image according to their preferences--depending on whether you prefer a bass-focused, bass-intensive, or fully balanced sound. They also block ambient noise so you can hear the intricacies of your music.
The included in-flight adapter allows you to tap into the latest movie with the same headphone, and switch back to your MP3 player or mobile with ease. When your MP3 player is out of reach, the in-line volume adjuster provides you with the control you demand.

About the fit: several other buyers complained that the buds fall out. My experience is quite different -- the sleeves fit very well, both in terms of comfort and isolation. I have had no issues when moving my head, wearing them around the house, or riding a bike. I have not tried them in a gym/running environment, but these are not sports buds. Perhaps the individual experience is about individual user's ear size compared to the sizes of the sleeves offered.
Overall, excellent headphones which provided good value for the price I paid. If ever this goes bad, I am definitely going to buy the newer version of the same.
Short story - I will be selling my Bose OE, Sennheiser HD 380 Pro's, and Klipsch X10's for these Sennheiser CX980's. I am very impressed.
Pros: Comfort, clarity, range, volume control, high quality build, well built and nice carrying case, airline adapter.
Cons: It seems the earbuds like most others can fall out or become loose a bit as you turn your head.
Overall, very happy with them. Great sound with a little oomph for what earbuds can do.
