Etymotic Research ety8 in-the-ear Wireless Bluetooth Earphones Review

BigPictureBigSound
1 May 2007
  • Conclusion: I want nothing more than to give the ety8s four stars. However, there are a few undeniable drawbacks: the random dropouts, the slight weight on your ears, the lack of subtle highs and lows (when compared to the ER4Ps), and pressure from using the buttons - all conspire to knock the 8s down a notch.

  • Conclusion: The Ety8 continues Etymotic's tradition of high-resolution earphones, this time in a wireless but somewhat flawed Bluetooth model.
  • Pros: Clear, transparent sound quality. Decent Bluetooth range. Very lightweight. Built-in remote. Solid battery life. Slim iPod adapter.
  • Cons: Truly strange styling. Irritating nylon cord. Some audio anomalies on material with strong bass. Expensive, especially with the iPod adapter. Bright sound might not appeal to everyone.

  • Excerpt: Etymotic is well known for its noise-isolating earphones, but the ety8s are its first foray into the world of wireless sound. The drawback is obvious - pop the ety8s in and you'll swiftly become the subject of curious stares and pointing children.

  • Conclusion: Credit has to go to Etymotic Research for successfully developing a product such as this that works as well as it does, but in reality we're probably a year or two away from something that looks, performs and is priced well enough to appeal to more of a mass market.
  • Pros: Decent performance with an iPod, external audio controls
  • Cons: Expensive, not particularly stylish, degraded performance with most other Bluetooth devices

  • Conclusion: Si vous êtes un inconditionnel des nouveautés haut de gamme, vous ne serez déçu ni par le son, ni par le niveau de confort des écouteurs ety8. En revanche, ils sont assez coûteux.
