Read full Sennheiser IE8i review
At £200, the Sennheiser IE8i earphones are not cheap, but if you are a basshead, then you'll be willing to overlook this. They 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 is alarmingly good. It's deep, taut and thoroughly exciting. There's also the option of wearing them as normal or over-the-ear, making them flexible and one of the best in-ear headphones of the past year.
