Senheiser CX870 discontinued?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey All

I came here thinking this was the place for audio pros smile.gif

No one can probably help me but its worth a shot, I always buy them earphones but now I cant find them anywhere, they seem discontinued, if thats the case, it seems the model up is almost 3 times the price, im just a bit confused on the whole thing?

Hope someone can shed some light

Yeah they seem to not be available by retail in the US, only over in the UK from Sennheiser.

However, like Bill mentioned, you can still readily find them on eBay and Amazon for around $65.
Might even luck out with a better price on a pro audio forum from a reseller there.

Good luck!

Not sure that I can say why they might have been discontinued.
My guess would simply be an older design that just got outdated.

Not sure how things looks over in the UK retail-wise, but here in the states, these are the like the only Sennheiser in-ear headphones you see anymore.

I have purchased two pairs now, the original and the ones that now controls your iPod or phone, and I love them.

Oh gosh they look like a nunchuck!

Well maybe it is time for me to jump brands, after years of trying different pairs the cx870 just fit so well for me.

Fair enough.
However, as an owner of the new IE-2s, if you get a chance to try them out, I would.
They have a comfort level I haven't found in any other earbuds, I can wear them all day without a problem.

Good luck in your search!
