The Good Integrated microphone and play controls. Good sound for those who are patient.

The Bad Hard to get a good fit. Can be too shrill or too bassy. iPhone only.

The Bottom Line The Sennheiser CX 880i are iPhone headphones which sound great but take a lot of perseverance to achieve a good fit.

As smartphones proliferate, the demand for standalone MP3 players diminishes. The convenience of combining a telephone and music player in a device like the iPhone is very tempting for many people. But why should you have to use the freebie iPhone headphones?

Sennheiser offers a range of iPhone-specific headsets which includes the MM 80 and MM 50 with the CX880i sitting at the top.
