Excerpt: I have never had so much fun listening to music thru headphones until I bought my e2c's. I am now able to keep all distracting noises out of my head whenver needed and have found the joy of flying once again. No matter how short or long a flight is I make sure that I have my earphones with me so as to zone out all noises of the plane and of course noisy little children that cannot seem to sit still while on a plane.
Excerpt: After reading customer reviews of these earphones, I decided to buy them because of the noise-cancellation feature. Not all ears are created alike, so the Shures come with a variety of sleeves so that you can find your perfect fit. I also noticed that lots of people mentioned that there wasn't enough bass, but I usually find other earphones too bassy which makes the sound a bit muddy. The sound of these earphones is great!
Excerpt: After playing drums for a few years and already experiencing some hearing damage, I knew I needed a good pair of noise isolating or cancelling headphones. I looked at the Bose and Shure headphones, along with a few other brands, and it came down to a few essential things. Comfort, sound quality, and price. The Shure line of headphones met all of these requirements.
Summary: I love these earphones! They have excellent sound quality and isolate me from other noises and distractions. They are an essential upgrade to the headphones that came with my Zune.
The only drawback for me is that the cord is a little stiff, causing it to get tangled and be slightly less manageable than I would like.
Overall though, I certainly recommend these headphones anyone interested in better sound quality and who enjoy isolating earphones.
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). They are extremely comfortable to wear and come with a highly impressive array of tips. The cable is the perfect length.
Pros: Nice sound, very durable, huge variety of tips for ears
Summary: I recently picked up a new Microsoft Zune, it is amazing. This was my first portable media player and I love it! The stock headphones that came with it were terrible! They hurt my ears and actually made my ears bleed from trying to fit them in my ears. So a few weeks ago I got a coupon in the mail, a $20 coupon to BestBuy. So I went to BestBuy to see what they had. I talked to the guy about my problem and how it could be solved. He took me the the Shure E2c's.
Summary: These are just great. They sound very well rounded, with precise bass, and smooth highs that never get tinny. Other in ear phones I'd used sounded to bassy, and boomy. These deliver really precise bass, while accurately projecting the mids. I listen to alot of music, and am constantly taking these in and out of my ears to talk to people, etc. That can get a little uncomfortable if you don't have the right sleeve on that fits you. And these are very easy to insert.
Summary: I' ve got e2g's, the black version..... This is entry level hi-fi, you can hear where your mp3 music is compressed... Your mp3 quality shoulb be at least at 256kb/s.... comes with 9 sets of fittings, putting them in requires a bit of practice...
Summary: Better than the E3C for the money. I bought both at Best Buy at the same time. About a $100 diff in price. I listened to the same songs with both, many, many times. I noticed they definately sounded different, but the E3Cs did not have as much bass and deaper tones, while the E2Cs sounded fuller on the low wnd of the spectrum.
