They actually stay in your ear. They never fall out.

  • Summary: As long as they are well taken care of, these are the most amazing sound-reducing devices in an extremely portable fashion. The sound quality is very good and not overly loud. I also recommend their ear-plugs which also work extremely well.
  • Pros: - Good audio performance, without a doubt as good as any in-the-ear 'bud' style headphone - Foam and standard tips STAY IN YOUR EAR AND DO NOT FALL OUT. There is no such thing as an imperfect fit - what you get is a complete seal and the foam will mold directly to your ear canal. This is the only...
  • Cons: - Questionable quality, I broke one of the buds from the cord being tugged loose inside. Due to the manufacturing they cannot be repaired, only replaced, so, you must really buy these headphones from a company like Newegg that Etymotic will honor the warranty return for. Still I bought another pa...

Extreme precision for the extreme audiophile

  • Summary: Do some research on these on etymotics website to get the full rundown. I have invested in a pair of Sony MDR-EX700, MDR-XB500, MDR-V6, these ER6i, and they are amongst my favorites.
  • Pros: I will have to say that out of all these earphones I can rate these at the very top in terms of value and accuracy. Do some research behind these before considering others. I have used these in the professional world for musicians as well as for my own experience. These are the most technical ear...
  • Cons: The earphones do lack some lower end frequencies. The filters do have to be changed periodically for a cheap price

  • Summary: Definitely not for the bass-lover, but as a first set of upgrade phones, these are just fantastic. They sound very good unamped and were very comfortable off the bat for me. Your mileage may vary, however... some people love the Ety sound and fit, some people absolutely hate it.

  • Summary: A friend of mine had these and I wanted them, but had to wait for the black version as I just can't handle a white cord. :p I've had these plugged into a Nano for the past couple months. They sound MUCH better than my previous Sony EX71's.

  • Summary: I bought these headphones as a replacement for my Sony MDR-EX71's. Instead, I ended up with more of a utility headphone as they only my choice when mowing the lawn or listening while flying. The sounds from the headphones is flat.

  • Summary: Having tried the Shure SE210 in-ear phones I found them very good at sound isolation and good overall sound, but there was just something lacking....probably the clarity to justify their £70-£90 price tag. I was pretty sure the Etymotic Research ER-6i would be better and I was not disappointed.
  • Pros: Value for money/clarity/isolation/comfort
  • Cons: Could do with a bit more oomph
