Etymotic mc5 Earphones

Wired
12 November 2011
  • Excerpt: The Etymotic name may not be well-known among the general public, but to earphone snobs, it’s as familiar as the names of their children and spouses. The company built its reputation on its excellent pro-level in-ear monitors, which cost hundreds of dollars. But with the mc5 in-ear headphones , Etymotic has produced a much more affordable IEM that’s equally impressive.
  • 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 $20. Rubber mushroom tips are stiff and can be uncomfortable. Not made for Gigantor-eared specimens.

Etymotic mc5 headphones review

Pocket Lint

  • Excerpt: One of the killer elements to the Etymotic headphones range is that they can be fitted with a mould that perfectly fits your ears. Of course that's an extra that will set you back around £70, but trust us when we say it is worth it.
  • Pros: Work with custom mouldings, sound good for vocals
  • Cons: Can't really cope with levels of bass
