  • 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: 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.

Etymotic Research ER6i Earphones

  • 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: I never liked in the ear phones before but these sure changed my mind. Does a fairly good job of blocking out sound.

Decent pair of headphones

  • Summary: I got these to replace my shure e2cs that I lost. After a week, i think that the Etymotic are more comfortable, definitely lighter and fit much deeper in the ear. Also, they don't loop over the ear. On the downside, they do not seem as well made, and the bass does not sound as good. The price was about the same for both, I think i'm happier with the Etymotic.

Better than ipod phones but...

  • Summary: ...They take too long to install in your ears properly, which is important if you get interrupted and have to take one out of your ear to talk to someone ~ this reduces their practicality for me. I read great, no, amazing reviews about these and have found the sound quality to be pretty good.

  • 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. Whereas, the Sony's always gave me an uncomfy jarring effect from the overblown bass and lack of any definition...the Ety's can lose me in the music for hours. Also, I can listen to these without any sort of eq adjustment whatsoever.
