  • Summary: I found the Shure E5C to be quite a mixed bag. On one hand the bass had more extension that I had heard with an IEM. On the other hand, it lacked the transparency, speed, and precision of the Etymotic ER-4S. The Shure E5C, is an earphone that, in my opinion does not have any real strengths sonically. It is very portable, mildly uncomfortable (to these ears!), it has relatively harsh treble, and the bass seemed boomy, and ill-defined.

  • Summary: This ear phone is the best ear phone ever hear. I think it is the best ear phone under $1000.00. It is best value for high end ear phone.

  • Summary: The Shure E5 is a great portable audio device, that allows you to get into you music on the go and in noisy places, though it is little match for similarly priced headphones in the sound quality arena. The first thing a listener will notice about the E5 is its bass, which goes lower and hits with more authority than one would expect from such a tiny device, outdoing many traditional headphones in this regard.

  • Summary: I bought these after my SuperFi 5 Pro fell apart, and rather than get a replacement pair I added the extra cash and moved up. These do not have the instant appeal of the UE's, as the sound is much smoother and more balanced but without the huge bass impact. Having now spent some time with them, they are the best canal phones I have owned by a large margin. They are of course also the most expensive canal phones I have owned by a large margin so value is another question.

  • Summary: Yes, to those who are serious about their music. No, to those who just download randomly (the high school crowd), buy E2c's and be much happier.
  • Pros: >Sound >Fit (Especially Shure's "Fit Kit") >Finish >Packaging >Detailed Instructions >Shure's Bulletproof 2yr. Warranty
  • Cons: >Initial Purchase Price >Re-importing thought okay clarity music at better quality.

  • Summary: I believe a 5 star rating should only be reserved for the absolute best. Trust me. These earphones are second to none. Buy them and you won't regret it.
  • Pros: Sound quality, fitting options, construction
  • Cons: None that I could find

  • Summary: I bought the shure e5c's straight after some koss models (headphones) and sennheiser cx-300. It's not a just compairson for the other earphones to be compaired, they are crumbled when put up against the 5c's. this feedback is given with the triple flange sleeves coupled to the e5c's, original accessory. i have a cowon/ iaudio 6 (mp3 player) which use with 320kbps mp3s only. the only gripe i had was the memeory fit cable, but after awile it's actually quite good.
