Etymotic Research ER6i Noise Isolating Headphones for iPod (ER-6i) Review
9 December 2005
Excerpt: When I recently purchased an Apple iPod, I knew within one day I was going to need new headphones. After using the standard Apple ear buds for 20 minutes straight, not only did they fall out 3 times, I was actually in pain! I'm sorry, but the only time listening to music should cause pain is when Clay Aiken is involved. Anywho, it just so happened I had a pair of over-the-ear headphones from my Discman laying around, so I tried those. But these also failed to satisfy.
Excerpt: Etymotic is one of ‘the big two’ in the arena of canal phones. Known mostly for the high end ER-4S cans, Etymotic decided to throw their hat into the iPod popularity ring with the ER-6i. This is slightly confusing because the company also offers a black ER-6 model, and consumers’ first impressions would make them believe that the ‘i’ is just a marketing gimmick aimed at wooing the iGeneration.
Pros: Comfortable; great sound quality
Cons: Flimsy cord; difficult to remove; only available in white
Excerpt: (1 items) [This review applies to the Shure E2c, Etymotic ER-6, and ER-6i.] These three in-ear-canal models stake claim to the middle ground--in terms of sound quality, noise isolation, and price--between the Sony MDR-EX71 on the low end and the higher-priced Shure E3c and E5c and Etymotic ER-4P. All three block out significantly more external noise than the EX71 and preserve more of your music's natural detail.
Conclusion: , hvor jeg beskrev problemet og ogs� indr�mmede at de var over garantiperioden. Jeg fik blot besked p� at sende dem tilbage, og fem uger senere stod jeg med et helt nyt s�t, kun 50 kr. i porto fattigere. S� Etymotic skal have stor ros til deres kundeservice med p� vejen ogs�.
