Review: Etymotic mc5

26 May 2011
  • Pros: Simply awesome sound. Thin, Kevlar-reinforced cable doesn’t tangle easily. Uses replaceable filters to keep the wax out — tools and extra filters are included. 32dB to 42dB of isolation blocks out the horrors of the outside world.
  • Cons: Mic/remote is an extra . Rubber mushroom tips are stiff and can be uncomfortable. Not made for Gigantor-eared specimens.

Etymotic mc5 headphones

Pocket Lint
9 July 2010
  • Conclusion: The mc5 headphones are pitched as a budget option for those not yet ready to go up to the Etymotic hf3 headphones (£130) that are just about to be released. At £55 you will get what you pay for, but for most people looking at a pair of headphones in this price bracket, these will do nicely.
  • Pros: Work with custom mouldings, sound good for vocals
  • Cons: Can't really cope with levels of bass
