In-ear headphones between £200 and £300

Key features:
  • Dynamic driver
  • Bass dial
  • Remote (in ie8i)
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.

Price: £239
