My listening is all done on Sennheiser HD800 headphones or IE80 in-ear.The IE80 deliver a very well balanced sound - I have had no need to turn up the wick on the bass adjuster as its default minimum setting is perfect for me. The midrange and treble are very well balance with no sibilance. The soundstage is excellent and external noise exclusion is moderate. I have not used them on cars or trains or planes though. I find the design of the device along with standard tips (M) fits my ear better than Shure, Etymotic or Sony IEMs I have used in past. I get a great seal with good comfort - no need for deep insertion cones now.The cable is very quiet and flexible. The insertion is designed for over ear cable dressing. I sometimes get irritated with the cable touching behind my ear, as I have had with other brands.The low impedance means that my iPhone and iPad can drive easily.The packaging is a work of art and there are several styles of tip delivered to allow selection of the user optimum style.A very neat carry box is also supplied.The IE80 is one of the most copied IEMs on the planet. So only buy from a Sennheiser dealer to be absolutely safe.Analogue Seduction are very reliable and attentive.Full marks Sennheiser and AS!
