When a real top-quality earphones arrive, it can be years before it is really upstaged. That’s what happened with the Sennheiser IE80
. They’re great. You can also get them with an iPhone remote housing, in the IE8i
These are serious earphones, but also give you a bit of control over the sound. There’s a bass dial on the side. It sounds like a gimmick, but actually gives you subtle control over the mid-bass. This alters how ‘thick’ the sound comes across. Buy Now at Amazon.co.uk from £238
At time of review the Sennheiser IE80 was available for £239.
