I prefer the AKG product versus this one. For the price I paid it is a excellent value, but for the list price no.
I would like to have more of the top products from Senheiser. I would expect more bass and better mid sound.
But it is a great value for the price I paid. I would recommend for everyone to buy it for U$80.00.
Just adding, the cable for this product is longer than the one from AKG, but not for much.
The controls of the Sennheiser are very good and they worked with Ipods and Ipads and Iphones.
I just like to use with better quality products and evaluate the full quality of this headphone.
For me it very good value and a very good quality.

Even for Sennheiser, Wow! All the benefits of having a subwoofer in your ear with none of the downsides.

The sound control appears not to work. It is not rotary as the description says. This would attenuate the signal between the device and the buds. This appears to want to control the volume of the device. Anyway I have these plugged in my computer, playing Cowboy Junkies, the sound is fantastic but have to control volume on the computer.

Does not control the volume on My Dell X51V. The description "Built in rotary volume control" would appear to be incorrect. Will send these back.

Once upon a time I had Sennheiser earphones and pretty much nothing else. I went two years using the CX300II's and then bought the CX310's. Then I purchased the Ultimate Ears 500, 700, and TF 10's. Then I decided I wanted a new Sennheiser product in my collection. I looked at the IE8's and 80's, but those have yet to float down to the $125.00 I paid for my UE TF 10's, so until I get that type of deal on either of those IEM's, I pulled the trigger in the CX 880's, since they normally list for $150.00, and were on sale on Amazon for about $50.00. I read mixed reviews, though mostly the majority of reviews on sound were solid if not spectacular. It's the build quality that took a huge hit in the community. When they finally arrived, I anxiously opened the box and got my hands on these. I plugged them in, no burn in time, straight out of the box, into my Sansa Fuze with my Fiio amp. The match was a no go. They simply did not sound very good on the Fuze. The problem being that on the Fuze, the mids were recessed. i mean VERY recessed. So i decided to plug them directly into my ipod. Ok. Better. The mids were now balanced along with the lows and highs. So it has to do more with the way the 880's interract with the Fuze. I then preceeded to go with a 6 hour burn in with pink/white noise and sweeps. I took the 880's and put them through my amp using my rockbox'd sansa clip zip. The sound coming from the clip was GORGEOUS! The highs are so CRISP and CLEAN! There's roll off, but the sparkle on the highs is simply impressive, and made the more impressive because the lows match the highs with fullness and boom without bleed or muddiness. The mids are natural and vocals really shine. There is just terrific clarity and balance through the entire frequency range.Read more ›

I was looking for a higher quality in-the-ear headphone solution, and a set of Sennheiser CX-680-i's were on sale over at Newegg. They were competitively priced (or so I thought, until I came over to Amazon). A couple of my co-workers are big fans of Sennheiser, so I thought I'd give 'em a try. I found the CX-880-I's to be in my price range, read the customer reviews, and hit the 'ol "TAKE MY MONEY" button.

A week later, they arrived, along with my Creative X-Fi Go! USB Sound card. Set everything up, and played with the three different seal options that came with the headphones. I found the medium set to be perfect (I must be average, ear-wise). As other reviewers stated, MAKE SURE YOU GET THE RIGHT FIT! I then proceeded to play multiple songs of differing qualities, and noticed a low-level whine. Turning up Windows 7's bit-rate, and using the "Optimize for Headphone" options available fixed this.

The good stuff:
They sound amazing, with terrific clarity. You will hear things in your songs that you didn't know were there, if you were using crap-quality headphones before.

The construction is sturdy, with no quality defects or imperfections that I can notice so far. The placement of all features seems to be in an optimal position.

The packaging came with a considerately optional clip for mounting these bad boys to your shirt or shorts or whatever your thing is.

The bad:
Not really anything to mention here, other than I was inattentive and got the i-Device compatible version, even though I own no Apple products.

If you have an iPhone or iPad this product is amazing. I have a music / sound engineering background and bang for the buck those headphone are awesome - I didn't realize that this product was geared for iPhone / iPad devices so when I tried the microphone functionality on my android phone the mic did not work. However, my I gave it to my new sister-in-law and she loves it. Shes a big music person and noise blocking aspect of the headphones is really good according to her. So if you have an iPhone or iPad or just want to use the device for listening to music then there is no doubt you should get this item. If you have an android phone and want to use the mic feature do not get this item and do more research.
