  • Summary: These little earbuds are designed as IEMs, In Ear Monitors, for stage musicians and the like. Hence, they have incredible sound isolation. I would feel comfortable using them as hearing protection while mowing the lawn.
  • Pros: Comfy, Durable, Clear Highs, Meaty Mid-Bass
  • Cons: Low-Bass/Subsonic, Finicky Fit At First

  • Summary: Packaging - The E2C Come in a rather frustrating box, made of that terrifying packaging that just about everything comes in these days. Inside of the box, you will find a pair of earphones, 8 extra sets of ear-tips, and a wonderful, solid, case for transport.
  • Pros: Sound Quality, Looks
  • Cons: Minor Comfort Issues

  • Summary: I got these phones used with a broken plug which I had to fix myself, so I have no idea what kind of life they had before they came to me. That said... You can do better than these phones. The sound is good, there isn't any particular strength or weakness upon which I will extol.
  • Pros: Well-built, relatively cheap, comfortable, good isolation
  • Cons: Sound is only so-so

  • Summary: I love these headphones and the way they sound, and I've been using them as my go-to travel headphones for over a year. Great mids and nice sparkling treble. They lack a little in bass punch, of course, as most IEMs do, but it's definitely there and it's enjoyable (I supplement by adjusting on EQ).
  • Pros: Nice sound, very durable, huge variety of tips for ears
  • Cons: Isolation could be better

  • Summary: I'll address my the contradiction in my pros and cons first. The earpieces are solid and the strain reliefs are good on both the earpiece and the jack. The cable is thick and inspires confidence but something you won't know from just feeling it, is that it hardens and cracks after a while.
  • Pros: Isolation, comfort, rugged build, non fatiguing sound
  • Cons: Cable cracked after less than year

  • Summary: These things hurt my ear canal too easily unless I use the orange foam inserts, but they get gross and deform a little too easily. Anyway, the sound on these was good enough for me to realize that my iPod had a pretty constant hiss.
  • Pros: sound is good
  • Cons: sound is only good

  • Conclusion: At under $100 dollars, the Shure E2c’s provide excellent sound reproduction. They’re characterized by a slightly airy, open and expansive soundstage that blends the sounds from all directions accurately.

Review: E2c Sound Isolating Earphones by Shure

Macenstein
12 May 2006
  • Excerpt: Posted by Brain in a Jar Audiophiles have oft lamented about the quality of the standard ear buds Apple ships alongside its über-popular iPods. This has always been somewhat baffling to me, as I would think a true audiophile wouldn’t settle for MP3 level quality to begin with (although, maybe...
  • Pros: Great sound, deep bass you can’t get from “regularâ€? ear buds. Does a great job blocking out external noise.
  • Cons: Good results require first creating an almost impossible to make (for me at least) vacuum seal with the ear drum.

Shure E2c Sound Isolating Earphones Review

  • Excerpt: I guess you can say music is my life. I basically eat, sleep and breathe music day in and day out. I know, I know. It sounds so cliché... But actually it's not. You see... I'm a DJ. And more often than not, when I listen to music, it's on headphones, not speakers.

  • Conclusion: The E2c delivers a cleaner aural experience than most earbud models, so you hear greater detail without suffering excessive brightness or harshness. Bass definition and power are quite good.
  • Pros: Wires have a tendency to tangle, Tricky to place in ears
  • Cons: Excellent sound quality, Effective ear seals provide ambient-noise isolation, Storage case
