Sad

  • Summary: The sound production is very tinny, despite good equipment that I have, very disappointing for classical music or human voice, puzzled that others were so satisfied. This purchase was a mistake.

Flimsy, Useless Rubbish

A Wardle, Amazon

  • Summary: To give these headphone credit, the sound quality and noise insulation are pretty good, but what does any of that matter when the product is so poorly made that it ceases to work after a few uses?

Not good at all

Richard Fieldhouse, Amazon
10 October 2012
  • Summary: I got these as a replacement for my broken AKG Q350's (An AMAZING pair of earphones but werent in stock when I wanted them). I was really disappointed - everything sounded really squeeky regardless of the EQ setting on my iPod, and the bass was practically non-existent!

Disappointed

  • Summary: Bought these on the strength of previously having owned an old set of Etymotics. the old set fitted snugly deep within the ear canal and gave a good sound. These came with an array of different plugs.

Warning: If you love etymotic er4p or er6i you will HATE these.

Phyllida Stevens-Gently, Amazon

  • Summary: I have and adore etymotic er4p and er4s. I had and semi-adored the slightly cheaper er6i too. Unfortunately my er6i's met with an accident and when i went to find another pair i discovered they were discontinued and that etymotic had replaced them in their range with these, the mc5's.
