Cons

Not recommended for users with low-quality song libraries - very easy to notice inconsistencies amongst bit-rates lower than 320/lossy audio in general

1 agrees

Tight metal volume slider will likely require two hands to adjust - not conducive to on-the-go or exercise-based applications

1 agrees

Unit tends to be larger than most earbud models (e.g. stock Sony, Apple earbuds) - may not fit all users' ears properly, resulting in discomfort and poor sound quality

Sennheiser MX 980s are high-end earbud style headphones aimed at the on-the-go audiophile . Their dynamic speaker systems deliver exemplary audio quality, boasting an effective frequency range of 16-23,000 Hz while their rotatable 3.5mm jack allows for switching from straight to angled. Additionally, the MX 980s are optimized for use with iPods/iPhones/MP3 players.

The MX 980s' dynamic speaker systems utilize powerful neodymium magnets which do not need to sacrifice well-balanced, high-end audio quality in order to fit into a smaller, earbud style headphone unit. The MX 980s' rotatable 3.5mm jack allows the user to switch from straight or angled jack entry quickly and easily. Meanwhile, the MX 980s are specially designed to better reproduce audio from compressed media formats (MP3, AAC, WAV), making them ideal for use with iPods and MP3 players.
