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...
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..
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.
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.
