  • 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 agree with most of what Iron Dreamer says, so I'm just going to add my personal observations. There are certain types of music that these headphones are right for, and some in which they sound mediocre. The E5's are perfect for jazz. Whenever I listen to 'Kind of Blue', I'm just blown away by the life that Miles' trumpet and Coltrane's sax has. These headphones are also great for rock music (eg. In Flames and Pink Floyd), but not so much for classical.

  • 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.
