Great headphones

  • Excerpt: Only Etymotic seal out all noise, making them perfect for the gym with its bad music. The sound quality is clean and crisp. Highs, midrange and bass all sound perfect.

  • Excerpt: I bought these for my dad for Father's Day based on online reviews and recommendations from friends. My dad loved them and already knew about the headphones reputation when he opened his gift. So far he's loving them!

Great sound and outside noise cancelling

  • Excerpt: I used these on a recent trip from NYC to Buenos Aires to just cancel out airplane sound and they worked great! The fit is snug and read the instructions for insertion as the bass sounds only come thru when the fit is right! These unlike many, also stay in my ears and don't fall out.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality

Etymotic comes through again

  • Excerpt: I have used Etymotic for about 10 years now and for me, they have more than fulfilled the promises. The included earpieces are the best extra for my use. There are four different choices included with the hf5 buds and I found 2 that fit great. Last ...but best, are the way they perform. I never get distortion from these headphones...and I am usually cranked up to the max for my mp-3 player. They are durable and have served me well.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound

Exceptional Sound at Price Point

  • Excerpt: I haven't found a better option than the HF5's at this price point. Yes, Etymotic and a few other brands offer units with better quality but I feel that the HF5's offer the best sound quality/$ spent ratio by a fair margin.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Great Sound, Lightweight

Very Poor Bass Response!!

  • Excerpt: Do not purchase this product if you expect reasonable bass response. The manufacturer advises proper fitting -- i.e., deeper insertion of earphones but the bass is still woefully inadequate. Treble, mid tones and distortion are reasonable but the lack of bass is a deal breaker. You will instantly recognize this if you have any auditory discretion at all.

Decent audio quality, but the fit is tri

  • Excerpt: They sounded decent, but I cant help but think they'd be much better if they fit properly. You can go the custom earpiece route, but that's a pricey solution.
  • Pros: Nice Case

Nice balanced sound

  • Excerpt: I wear these every day to the gym with an iPod shuffle. The sound quality is much better than cheap "sports" headphones. The isolating quality means that I don't have to crank them up loud to drown out distractions. The triple flange tips fit my ear very well and they offer multiple sizes.

Pure, unadulterated listening experience

  • Excerpt: I have owned the ER-4P's for 6 years. Used them daily while taking the bus. Since I now drive I only use them for air travel which makes today's commercial airline experience bearable. The isolation and sound quality of the ER-4P's was excellent so when I needed something for the office I researched to see what was available. Finally decided to stay with Etymotic since there were many reviews claiming the hf5 was close to the ER-4P. I use the triple flanges.
  • Pros: Accurate, Good Value, Isolation, Sound Stage
