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: 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. I would estimate that would a good fit, the Noise Reduction Rating would be about 20dB.
Since the drivers are fairly small (~1cm), they have just the amount of bass one would expect: little. It's there, but weak.
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.
Summary: These headphones work wonderfully. Just wearing them cuts out a lot of noise, and when you have music going it's amazing. My iRiver's volume goes from 0 to 40. At 3, I can't hear people talking from 4 feet away. At 6, I can't hear them talking loudly or almost yelling. At 10 or 12, I couldn't hear someone screaming at the top of their lungs at me from 3 feet away (it was a test).
Summary: i have had the shure e2c headphones since christmas, at first they felt wierd and i didn't even wear them right,,, then i got to know them and they were aewsome....... they block out all noise and i can't hear my family talking and i use these during class whhile my teachers are talking ,,,,its cooool.... ther are not bulky and they are light and easy to carry around...... when you wear them you can't see them from a frontal view... so,,,, i would buy these...
