Shure E5c

10 September 2004
  • Excerpt: (1 items) [This review applies to the Shure E3c, Etymotic ER-4P, and Shure E5c.] After sealing any of these three models into your ear canals, the outside world will disappear, leaving you alone with your music. With a good seal, all provide blissful silence--around -25dB to -30dB of isolation. Despite their varying price points, all three are reference-level products.

Shure E5c high-end Earbuds

1 July 2004
  • Excerpt: Shure describes their somewhat recent (released last year) E5c earbuds as “Sound Isolating In Ear Earphones,” and that’s a pretty good if understated description. More fully developed, I’d describe them as outstandingly good sound isolators, with one set of in-ear soft rubber sleeves designed like industrial ear plugs (with triple isolating flanges), used to keep the ear from being damaged by loud noise.

  • Excerpt: As the first two-way, universal-fit earphone for in-ear monitoring applications, Shure's second-generation E5 earphone-priced at an affordable $590-may change the way users feel about in-ear monitors. The E5 was developed in conjunction with Westone Labs and ultimate Ears. Each of the E5's ear-buds is a true two-way design, equipped with dual balanced armature or "ribbon" drivers and offering greater fidelity than single-driver transducers.

Shure E5c Sound Isolating Earphones

14 January 2011
  • Conclusion: The Shure E5c models are exceptional in-ear monitors can easily make you experience music, instead of just listening to it. But don’t expect a quick two minute listening session to show you just what they are capable of. Sit down for a few minutes and you will be continuously rewarded with layer upon layer of sound and effortless dynamics. It’s the kind of sound quality that has to be heard to be believed.
