Sennheiser IE8i

 

Are these the best earphones for discerning bassheads?

Deep, punchy bass ; Customisable bass level ; Removable cable

Kinda ugly design

The Sennheiser IE8i show that earphones don't need six drivers to produce great sound. Using dynamic drivers, the low-end is more prominent here than in almost all pairs available at a similar price, but the quality of bass here is alarmingly good....

Sennheiser IE 8i review

 

There's much to recommend these over-ear cans, but at the money we'd want a better tonal balance

Secure and comfortable, lots of detail, enjoyable sound

Cloying bass, iffy tonal balance

Enjoyable enough, but they need to be better balanced tonally

The Sennheiser IE 8is are a good set of in-line earbuds, albeit with a high price tag. While you’re likely to find cheaper headphones with comparable audio performance, the detachable ear buds allow for easy maintenance.

Sennheiser IE 8i

 

You can find similar performance for less, but easy maintenance means they'll last

Solid distortion performance; Nice, even tracking

Not the greatest isolation; Some quirks in frequency response

Overall, the Sennheiser IE 8i’s shortcoming is its pricetag. While they are decent earbuds, their cost is a bit high. Still, if you are looking for audio performance and longevity above all else, these are a great pickup. They produce decent quality...
