Not good for me

Zoetmb, B&H Photo
31 March 2015
  • Excerpt: This company has a good reputation, but all I heard was midrange. They supposedly sound better if you can achieve a tight seal, but I don't like them so tight in my ear. I replaced them with Sennheisers, which were more expensive, but worth it IMO.

Not durable, hard to fit, okay sound quality

What She Said, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought these earphones in July. By December the insulation had split open, leaving the wires exposed. I had expected such an expensive product to be more durable than that. These earbuds promise great noise cancellation if fitted properly, but I found them very difficult to fit.

not comfortable

Giovanni Galeotti, Amazon
24 December 2012
  • Summary: i buyed those because i have 2 pairs of similar earphones from the same brand, but they are not comparable at all, the old ones (ER-6i, that i can't find anymore) were so comfortable and so isolating with any of the interchangeable plugs.

Low quality materials. Maybe a bad batch?

Aram Calebson, Amazon
14 August 2012
  • Summary: I bought these headphones back in 2011 and quite enjoyed them for about 8 months, when one of the headphones started working intermittently. I wrote to Amazon about this and they promptly sent me a new pair. Less than 5 months later the cable has frayed near the plug.

The in-ear attachments are terrible

Kathryn_82 "kathryn_82", Amazon
16 September 2011
  • Summary: I have had these less than six months and all the in-ear attachments (foam cylinder,dome-shaped bit, the larger flanged tips) are FALLING TO BITS! The flanged ones split, the foam comes away and the dome-shaped things break apart. Good sound, horrible ear tips.

Klang und Außenschalldämpfung gut, miese Qualität

J. Chow "DoubleDee", Amazon
18 November 2012
  • Summary: Für mich als Drummer sind Kopfhörer wichtig, die den Außenlärm gut abdämpfen. Das erledigen die Etymotics sehr gut, auch mit dem Klang bin ich sehr zufrieden. Ernüchterung kam dann nach einem halben Jahr: Einen halben Zentimeter vor dem Klinkenstecker riss der Mantel auf.
