Summary: These were my first real earphones, and I bought them entirely because they'd been spreading like a plague on a forum I used. Upon first hearing them I was disappointed, but over time they grew on me, and until upgrading to the ER4, they were a firm favourite. Some of my friends couldn't get the fuss, nor understand why anybody would spend a hundred bucks on iPod earphones, but then again they were and are still listening to fake Sonys off eBay with the bass turned to...
Summary: Theres not a ton to say. They work pretty good, isolate ~30 dB if i recall and if you have the proper tips to fit your ears, youll be able to wear them for hours, which is good if youre using them like I was, running a floor grinding machine for 16 hours a day. Just clean them once in a while, or they'll start to look like candles.
Pros: Excellent isolation. Ive used these for shooting earplugs.
Cons: Could be uncomfortable for some. Bass heavy.
Summary: After researching high-end headphones to use in the office to improve my listening experience, I decided to go with IEM-style earbuds instead of full-size headphones. As it turns out, most high end cans intentionally leak sound to improve the listening experience...great for professional musicians in a studio or at a gig, not so much for me in an office unless your coworkers are cool with listening to your music too :P Anyhow, the above is just a tip to spare people who...
Summary: I've used these on a bicycle, motorcycle (i know i'm not supposed to), and on an airplane, and they work great. I can hear music over the wind noise or airplane noise clearly - even at low volumes. My only complaint is that they can be uncomfortable after extended use...but i haven't tried the smaller size plugs that were provided.
Summary: I just love this earphones, this is my first pair of expensive earphones (I always used the included ones) and I am very happy with them, part of the magic is the isolation, after you plug them can barely hear the outside world, it is just you and the music, close your eyes and it is just magic.
Summary: After burning it in for 24 hours, I tried them and compared them to my Razor m100s. First thing I noticed was that the bass was much lower and it didnt capture the deep feel of many songs. The plugs are uncomfortable at first and takes some time getting use to. One good thing is that the sound is very precise and clear and the earphones block out the environment very well.
More nuisances began to show with some extended use.
Summary: This is a first time I have ever written a review for any product, so this is a pretty big deal for me. I was skeptical when I first heard about these headphones, despite all the rave reviews. I never thought earphones could perform very well at this price, but I was blown away when I got them.
First the downside that I encountered: it was, at first hard to figure out how to put these things on.
Summary: Excellent earphones with a few covets.
1) you hear everything that hits the wire
2) you hear the wind
3) shirt clip is not detachable and kind of useless given the where it is located.
Other than that good sound. Good isolation but don't except to block out everything. I listen to classical.
Summary: I got these headphones a few days ago and I just can't believe how noise cancelling they are. I put them on and i can't here anything. The TV was on and I couldn't hear a word of sound. Don't get me wrong the sound quality is amazing. I can hear parts of songs I have never heard before. In 'Back in Black' by AC/DC you can hear the singer in the back say 'Four' on the last beat of the hihat intro. They are also so comfortable.
