Tour**


The Sennheiser CX 980s are a set of nice-looking in-ears. The ear buds feature a little bend in their neck, at the bottom of which is a hard rubber cord guard.

Further down the cord is an in-line volume control.

And the headphones culminate in a somewhat thick plug. The thickness is to allow the tip of the plug to swivel.

In The Box


In the box you'll find a few sleeves, some foam nozzle guards, a cleaning tool, a pouch, a cord wrap, an airplane adapter, and a shirt clip.

**Durability**     (*6.65**)*


The CX 980s seem to be decently durable for a set of in-ears.

 

 

**Aesthetics**     (*7.00**)*


In-ears don't really have enough surface area to do something aesthetically pleasing. This being said, the CX 980s look good for the small bits of plastic they are. We like their overall design. You won't be embarrassed with these things dangling between your tragi.
