Personal Review

"As a seasoned Sennheiser user, my experience with the IE80S earphones has been reasonably good. They have excellent construction, a comfortable fit, and deep bass. However, their sound quality, especially when used with just a cell phone, is underwhelming and doesn't quite live up to the price tag. Paired with a legitimate amplifier though, you can certainly appreciate their true potential. Despite a few cons, there's plenty to like about the IE80S—just don't expect perfection in every field."

Bass Response
The bass on the Sennheiser IE 80 S is appreciated by some users as deep and detailed. However, others have found it to be underwhelming or bloated, especially with certain bass adjustments. The quality also seems dependent on the source of the audio, with better performance noticed with quality audio equipment.
Treble Detail
The treble on the Sennheiser IE 80 S provides a level of crispness appreciated by some users. However, other reviews indicate that the treble can be harsh or lack clarity, with perceived noise on high frequency sounds.
Midrange Clarity
Some users found the midrange frequencies to be clear and natural, while others were disappointed, describing the mids as too laid back or lacking detail. The quality of the midrange seems to be distinctly noticeable when compared to other similarly priced products.
