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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
