Etymotic MC-5

The Etymotic MC-5 earphone (which retails at $79) provides users music and entertainment and is based on the Etymotic ACCU Technology™ platform. The MC-5 features noise-isolating function and ACCU Chamber™ Acoustic Control Chamber technology which modifies standard dynamic earphone drivers for an optimized response level. It is designed for extended wear, and with the high degree of noise isolation enables lower-volume listening.

Features

The Etymotic MC-5 features response-shaping ACCU Chamber process which corrects known limitations of lower-cost moving coil (dynamic) drivers; Acoustic Control Chamber (ACC) which is placed within the moving-coil structure and acts like a three-band equalizer; 8 mm neodymium moving coil driver that achieves a 3 dB increase in sensitivity which allows use of a smaller driver for a compact size. The Etymotic MC-5 is compatible for use an array of MP3 music players and Apple®-branded mobile products. The unit comes with a high-gloss polished aluminum finish in a choice of four chromatic colors, a carrying pouch; a Kevlar-reinforced cable for durability; user-replaceable ACCU Filter™ acoustic dampers, a 2-year warranty; and a selection of eartip options, with the option to upgrade to an Etymotic CUSTOM FIT earmold.
