    For years the Etymotic ER-4 series, e.g., Etymotic ER-4P Portable In-Ear Earphones represented the top of the line among in-ear monitor headphones. The Etys remain a good product (and an excellent buy), delivering crisp detail and excellent treble reproduction, but their weakness has been relatively modest bass performance.

    Recently a whole group of challengers has emerged, including, for example, Shure SE530PTH Sound Isolating Earphones with Push-To-Hear Control, Ultimate Ears Triple.fi 10 Pro Earphones Gun Metal Blue and the long-delayed, soon-to-be-released Westone 3. Consumers seeking audiophile sound from small in-ear monitors now face a veritable embarrassment of riches.

    In competition against these other products, the Sennheiser IE 8 acquits itself well. These earphones are small, comfortable, and beautifully crafted. They come with a variety of ear tip flanges for a custom fit, and include a feature unique among small IEM’s, an adjustable bass setting (you use a small screwdriver-like tool that is included in the package).

    The sound quality is clean and clear, without even a trace of murkiness. The output level is a bit lower than the Shure 530’s, meaning that if used with a low-powered device like an iPod you will need to set the volume level relatively high. This output is on a par with the Etymotic ER-4P’s, but with superior bass performance. Very fine detail reproduction is slightly better than the Shures, but is a bit lower than the Etymotics.

    Truth be told, my teenage son doesn’t really discern much difference between his stock white iPod earbuds and premium IEM’s like these Sennheisers. For him, splurging on the IE 8’s would seem foolish. But there are some of us who place great importance on what others might perceive as small differences in sound quality. For us audiophiles (or obsessive-compulsives, if you prefer), the Sennheiser IE 8’s represent a fabulous purchase.

    Expensive? Yes, definitely, But actually, if you consider how often you might use and enjoy these over a period of many years, the cost really might not seem that great.

    First off I am a normal consumer who does not work for the industry at hand. I have been in search of the “Best” in ear monitors or ear buds for nearly 4 years. Never being happy with what I tried based on reviews I always returned them or sold them online. I have tried Ultimate ears super fi pro 3’s & super.fi 5’s, Klipsch Image & Custom 3 ‘s, Sony, Apple in-ear with remote (Best for the price except cable noise) Koss CC_01’s, and most recently Shure Se 530’s (which I thought were the best until I go tired of the THICK cable with noise at the connections)… Now, last week I ordered the Sennheiser IE8’s. SIMPLY STUNNING, from the bass control, to the changeable cables, to the comfortable fitting, to the amazing sound quality both low and hi. The warm sound, solid yet smooth bass, and crystal clear hi’s I am amazed and I am not even through the total burn in time they do require by audiophile standards. I have about 12 hours on them thus far and they are already 150% better then out of the box. I took them for a hike yesterday, they stayed in place, sounded amazing and look great too, very stealth and sleek once in. they also come with a HUGE assortment of fittings for your comfort level needed. Trust someone who has finally ended their search and has found a keeper….. I am a new fan of sennheiser. In fact, I just ordered their “Work out” phone for my shuffle. Thanks!

    This is really a PS to the earlier review. I’m spending time with iPods and the fabulous Roll Pro headphone amp while listening to a range of phones including the Etymotic Blue tooth, Sennheiser 650, and Koss electrostatics. I can understand why Sennheiser has launched a new kilobuck-plus headset; even the vaunted 650 presents ratty treble compared to statics – massed violins, etc. do not sound recorded at all on electrostatics, just honey-smooth – Sennheiser has yet to make a real competitor with Electrostatics. I must say for overall pleasure, the IE8’s are my favorite alternative to electrostatics.

    I have owned many headphones over the decades, starting with Koss Pro-4A’s in 1965. I love Sennheisers in general, even the less costly models that use excessive warmth quite endearingly to impress. I was quite unprepared for the pleasure of the IE8’s, having been annoyed by other in-ear phones. I have large ear canals; none of the supplied tips gave me a seal, but I carved out and created my own seal from a piece of expanding foam, and got approval from Sennheiser to use it. I find the supplied over the ear clips to be an unnecessary nuisance, especially because they do not fit into the cool metal carrying case, which I have abandoned anyway as too fussy. The sound can be a tad glaring, but maybe I just listen too loudly – sounds great at lower volume levels than usual. Despite a house and a life full of headphones, including electrostatics, these have fast become my all around everyday, walk-around favorite.
