High quality sound for a reasonable price, plus noise blocking
9 September 2012
Excerpt: The Shure E2C's are one of the best pairs of earbuds I've owned Pros - Clarity and transparency of music is outstanding Cons : - If you are looking for super-thumping bass, these are not for you as they lack low end punch that is common in products like Sony's megabass earbuds, etc.
Summary: Sounds great and comes with a foam and rubber ear plugs in three sizes (a total of 6) so you are sure to find something that is comfortable and fits well. High quality constructing (gold plated contact, decent strain relief on BOTH ends of the wires). Sound is high quality and very good background isolation (I can turn the sound down on my iPod, while I am on a train platform that is 20' away from the freeway).
Summary: The shure earphones have a really crisp quality to them. In their price range, I think they definitely beat their competition on sound quality alone. However the in-ear design is not for everyone, and it does take some getting used to. I strongly recommend trying the different foams and buds that come with it until you are most comfortable first.
Summary: Today is 11/9/08, I ordered the Shure E2Mc-n earphones on 10/8/08 & Amazon is asking me to give review for a product that I've had for less than a month (after waiting for a week for shipping to happen).
I have a Sansa View MP3 & video player. I wanted something different from the IPOD since both of my kids have them and I'm not too thrilled about what you get for what you pay with the IPOD. I got 8 gigs for a little over $150.
Summary: I have had these headphones for over a year and they are by far the best sounding headphones I have ever had (granted, almost anything is a step up from the included iPod earbuds). I am no audiophile, but the sound quality of these in-ears allows me to hear sounds and nuances I have never heard before in music I've been listening to for years and I love them.
Summary: Shortly after receiving my Shure E2c-n headphones I used them with my I-pod Nano for about an hour and was quite pleased with their performance. Later, however, when removing the earpieces from my ears I realized that 1/2 of the left earpiece casing was still stuck in my ear. Though it came out quite easily I could not get the earphone casing to go back together.
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. To address the question of whether the number 8 was a typo, no, I couldn't believe what I got when it showed up, personal fit "kit" was by no means an overstatement.
I pretty quickly learned why shure...
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. Comfort is good and isolation is well above average.
Pros: Isolation, comfort, rugged build, non fatiguing sound
Summary: I am am a drummer in a band and needed good headphones/ earphones for studio work and concerts. I have found that the E2c's are very good for concerts because they block out alot of noise and you can't really see that I'm wearing them. Low end bass is very good, but it is a little boomy. Sometimes it also seems as if there is a little distortion. The reason I didn't get E5c's is because for what i am using them for I dont need very good quality.
Summary: I purchased these headphones at a discounted price, and couldn't be happier with them. I do agree with other reviewers though, the highs aren't that great with these. I have spoken to many people who said the bass wasn't that great, but I think they didn't have the right earpeices in. Once i found the right fit, it was wonderful.
