Our Verdict

Comfortable, the buds sit snugly in your ear. Sound is weighty and solid with a real sense of spaciousness

For

  • Sound is weighty, solid and superbly direct

Against

  • A hint of sibilance at the very top

The sound from the Sennheiser PMX 80s is weighty, solid and superbly direct, yet these headphones also create a real sense of spaciousness.

Tracks are detailed, rhythmic and musical, and the headband ensures the buds sit snugly in your ear.

Our only slight reservation is the merest hint of sibilance at the very top.
