    Circa 1983 - 1987

    Just found my MS 80's hiding in box in the attic after about 18 years!!!

    Bucket loads of research ended in me buying these Sennheisers back in '87 (rave reviews in What Hi-Fi etc.)

    If anyone fancies them for their Audio Show Case, I've just put them up for grabs on Ebay

    Hi Dale, Considering just how good these were rated back in the 1980's I was also surprised not to find loads of images on the internet. The only one I did pull up was from an Ebay Canada sale in December last year. But if you type Sennheiser MS 80 into ebay you'll see a couple of pics of mine. They're small on-ear open-back phones that in my eyes rate as one of the most stylish headphones of all time!!!

    No find. Either give a link to the eBay photo or upload a photo here, from camera or cellphone.

    I had the HD 414 and 424, several others, HD600/650/800, Momentum original and On-ear, HD8DJ, HDA-280, HD280/380, many others, recently the PX100-II, PX200-II, and PX95. From the photo of the MS80 and its headband, it looks very similar to the PX100 series. The PX-100-II has an envious reputation - with just a little EQ it can sound very hi-fi.
