Product Description

Product Description

Sennheiser MX 980

Manufacturer's Description

A touch of glam and sophistication. Put on the MX 980 earphones and you will know that they offer you a high-fidelity listening experience. These luxe earphones have a sharp and refined look, thanks to their metal-crafted parts adding a pop of shine. And like the CX 980 and OMX 980, the MX 980 also incorporates several cutting-edge features, one of which is the unique rotatable 3.5 mm plug - you can choose to use it either straight or angled.

Another highlight is their flexible in-flight adapter which comes with a rotatable socket. For user convenience, a volume control has been integrated on the cable. Completing the package is an avant garde clip as well as a carry case which also functions as a cable winder.

Design&looks
Very discrete, solid build, quality materials. Attention! May be falling out of your ears; there are utterly no adjustments whatsoever; you could end up adding extra padding to no avail. Be careful - test before you buy to avoid frustration; Sennheiser does NOTHING to help. If you have other earphones from then, spare parts do work (eg. from MX75 the green rubbery thingies do fit), may help to solve the problem.
Cable feels quite rigid which contributes to the earphones popping out. Especially in the winter, when the cable goes inside the jacket and just a small piece remains between the ear and the collar of the jacket.

Sound
Very "mature" sound. Crystal clear, well controlled base, quite neutral. A good fit with the ear is critical though!

Extras
They come with a leather case, airplane adaptor, extra pads. What I think about that? Waste of time - I'm not going to be carrying around an extra case 3 times the size of my mp3 player. A very trendy clip to keep the earphones attached to your garment - totally useless (tight, finger nail breaking; solution - simple clip from older nokia phones works light years better).

Overall
For this money a bit disappointing - this is the S-class of Sennheisser for portable devices. At almost 140 quid I'd be expecting more. For the fifth of the price one can get the younger brother (mx880) - a very interesting alternative.
Would I buy them again? No. Sound great, but fall out of ears and way too expensive for the overall delivery.

*****Jan 2012, update: after few weeks of usage: the converter does not fit plugs on planes; at least not on the 747-400.

I have no problem with the comfort of these earphones. For me, compared with in-ear monitors of any kind, they fit like a glove. Although the metal is chunky and indisputably more weighty than your average pair of earbuds, they are also of higher quality and obviously a lot more durable.

For a review of the sound quality, you need only look at this web page:

Needless to say they are astonishing.

If you intend to use these earbuds to listen to FM radio, however, I would advise you to look elsewhere. As you may know, modern devices with an FM radio feature often require the use of your earphones as a radio antenna, as they have no internal antenna of their own. My MX980 were only able to pick up static, where as a much cheaper pair of earbuds on the same equipment and in the same location could get a perfect signal. The only way I could hear anything at all was by grasping the metal 3.5mm stereo jack, and acting as a rather poor human aerial.

This earphone gives me the best quality sound what I had never hear before. I believe MX980 is the best one. It would be wear comfortably, even you could wear it sleeping.

I bought the item two months ago. It's worthy to buy it. It owns high sound quality for different types of music. For music lover it is ok. Better than OMX980 in middle frequency, the disadvantage is its high frequency is a little poorer than OMX980, but it's still excellent by comparing with other earphones. A good stuff at all!
