  • Summary: Audio Quality: 1/10   These sound much worse than my cheap Sennheiser cx300s. They manage to suck all life and energy out of any track I listen to. I actually enjoy an analytical and neutral sound signature. These however don't have the detail or sparkle to make up for it's lame frequency response. They just sound thin, small, and dull. There is no fun to be had in the low end. It's there, but it will not make you bob your head or shake your tail feather.
  • Pros: Fantastic build quality, lots of accessories, good isolation
  • Cons: Sounds like cold pasta, difficult to fit, very long housing, stock foam tips fell apart

  • Excerpt: На самом деле наушники называются Etymotic mc3™ headset + earphones, оффициальная стоимость на сайте производителя 99 вечнозеленых...., так что пусть номер ER047501 не вводит Вас в заблуждение. Наушники поглощают до 98% внешнего шума, на этом их достоинства заканчиваются. На сайте Etymotic есть видеоинструкция, которую непременно стоит посмотреть даже если вы не собираетесь покупать эти наушники.
  • Pros: поглощение 98процентов внешнего шума, на этом достоинства заканчиваются.
  • Cons: звучание этих вкладышей сплошной недостаток, нет бассов, грязные верха, проваленная середина... Созданы точно не для прослушивания музыки.

Dålig

  • Summary: Helt bortkastade pengar. Sägs vara utvecklade av jazzälskare men lurarna har ingen bas och propparna antingen för stora/små för mig. Propparna på bilden liknar Apotekes öronproppar men är styvare, gör ont och jag vågar inte trycka in dem så långt att jag hör basen men inte ens Eq kan rädda dessa lurar! Dessutom ska de ha brusreducering vilket kan vara anledningen att jag hörde spökljud då och då, det här med brus-reducering kan väl inte vara nåt att ha?

  • Summary: Hörlurarna låter mycket skumt, det är väldigt klart och detaljerad ljud, men det finns ingen bas. Passar kanske till musik utan bas, men som universal lurar funkar dom inte.
