Summary: This is my first pair of good earphones. I have always used whatever is cheapest. Now that my IPOD has reached the one year mark and I have found myself using it everyday, I am going to splurge on the E2g because it is one of the lowest priced Shure models sold by Amazon.
Summary: I ordered these because of their sound isolation feature. These come with a small carry case that I like to bring around along with my iPod. And they also come with 9 different earplugs for you to customize. They have 3 different kinds of plugs each with 3 sizes. They have clear plastic ones, soft black plugs, and foam plugs. I find the clear plastic ones to be way too hard so i tried the black ones which i used for a while and then tried the foam ones.
Summary: I've been looking for a pair of headphones like this for years. I've used these for 8 months now and wear them almost everyday. I ride a motorcycle everyday and I never leave without these. First, the comfort is exceptional. Even with my helmet on, I never get uncomfortable with these in my ears. I've ridden 400 miles at a time without any problems. Even when I need a break from the music, I leave these in because they do such a great job of blocking wind and bike noise.
Summary: these headphones were lovely. i had the one's that were'nt the gaming edition, but then i had a fire at my house and i lost them. i couldn't find them again at a reasonable price. so i looked here for 40 dollars less, they are bassariffic! they block out almost all the noise. it is the greatest buy i've made in my life.
Summary: Just got these, and I must say I LOVE THEM. I've had trouble with past IEMs--it can be frustrating to get a proper fit, and I think some folks who try them don't understand how far they need to go in one's ear to seal and deliver proper bass. It definitely takes a while to get accustomed. Once you get a proper fit, they sound awesome. I also got a great deal by shopping around.
Summary: I bought these on a limb. I hadn't read any reviews, hadn't seen them in action -- not that it would have helped. Everyone rates these 5 stars, especially here on Amazon... but I couldn't find ones that fit! I tried every piece. I tried pulling my ear, using 2 different pieces on each ear, and nothing would ever work. They'd always fall out on the slightest movement or anything.
Summary: ...especially if you find a good deal on them. I read somewhere that these buds are basically the E2C model in black. I don't have the E2C to compare but I can say that these are high quality in finish and sound. Many years ago I'd had a very nice, high-end pair of Sony buds and realize now that I've forgotten how nice it is to have a good pair for listening. Along with the many different fitting pads there's a sheet of "wax shields".
Summary: These sound-isolating headphones are tremendously useful. I use them each morning when I jog, and they are very comfortable and the sound quality is very clear. Furthermore, I also use these when I travel, and they substantially equivalent to the Bose noise-cancelling headphones, but take up so much room. While these dont perfectly cancel out everything like the Bose, the benefit of these being so much smaller far outweighs it. Would buy it again.
Summary: First time I've bought $100 earphones, and can say I'm quite happy. I don't know about mid-range highs, or peak frequencies, or any of that; they sound good to me, and they will completly cut you out of your surroundings. Sitting next to the TV on moderatly-loud volume, I can hear it, but very muted. Same with anyone who isn't talking into your ear. I needed the smallest size plugs, using the black plastic ones.
Summary: The Shure the E2G's are were designed for use with portable video game devices like the Sony PSP. The audio clarity and response from these tiny earphones is fantastic! Listening to digital sound using the E2Gs is great because the sound quality is fast, balanced, and accurate. I could actually pick out background sounds that I never noticed using other headphones - it's almost like having surround sound headphones on.
