Summary: Owned the e2c's for 2 years, had to send them in probably 4 or 5 times. loved the sound quality but was frustrated with the durability. once the warrenty expired and they broke again, I saw these on sale (not newegg though). The cord is thicker so I gave it a chance and couldnt be happier with them.
Pros: Incredible sound quality, extremely comfortable, noise isolation is out of this world. They still work after a year of heavy usage, like at least 4 hours a day. the 2 year warrenty is nice, have had to use plenty of times for previous shure earbuds.
Cons: bass is a little lacking, but they are small earbuds. Shure's reputation for durability is not the greatest.
Summary: Wish they were slightly cheaper, but what can you do?
Pros: Comes with a variety of ear buds, I personally like the ones you can squish the most. They fit comfortably in my ear and don't fall out if I'm on the move. Sound quality is also quite good, regardless of whether you're after clear treble or a deep bass. They're definitely not the best out there, ...
Cons: The wiring can get tangled easily depending on whether you tend to wrap them around your ipod and what not. It's not a major issue, since this happens with every pair.
Summary: Sound isolating versus noise canceling is great. My girlfriend has the Bose in ear's that are great sounding and deliver some serious low end. If you are looking for lots of bass these headphones aren't for you.
Pros: Great low profile look. Wear them behind the ear with cord going down your back and you cant even see them. They sound great (see other thoughts) ISOLATION! awesome! I am able to listen at substantially lower sound volumes while walking around downtown Chicago and I still hear every little detail.
Cons: I am babying them so the cords don't break which they inevitably will. I used to have a pair of e2c's back in 2004 and the cable broke up near the ear but exactly 2 weeks after the 2 year warranty was up. No biggie I didn't take the best care of them but everyone agrees these have a serious weak ...
Summary: Newegg shipping was amazing as always, free and fast.
Pros: - Amazing sound quality. I'm definitely hearing things in my music that I never noticed before. - Sound isolation is superb. I've had "passive" sound canceling earphones before (Apple's in-ear headphones, and a pair of Etymotics), and this blows them out of the water. Be sure to wear them as Shur...
Cons: - Included are extra pairs of different-sized earbud inserts, in case the default ones don't fit well. Unfortunately, it's really hard to change them. I wanted to try some of the non-default ones in case they fit better (even though they already fit really well), but I ended up ripping one of the...
Summary: I purchased these as a replacement to my E2c's and I love them. They're lighter, more comfortable, and sound even better. My E2c's did only last about 2 years before the wires deteriorated (where they rest behind the ear) to the point that they were unusable.
Pros: Unbeatable sound quality for the price range. Excellent array of earpieces for optimal fit. High Quality protective case. Newegg sells them!!!
Cons: The housing for the wire deteriorates rather quickly and I honestly don't expect them to last much more than 2 years.
Excerpt: I bought a pair of these earphones because I wanted some that didn't rattle around in my ears. I found that the Sony/Sennheiser kind that have a rubber sleeve covering the speaker tend to transmit noise of anything that touches the cables.
Excerpt: Nachdem ich mit einem Sony In-Ear erste gute Erfahrungen mit In-Ear Kopfhörern gemacht hatte, kauft ich mir auf Empfehlung eines Freundes den Shure-Kopfhörer. Der Kopfhörer begeistert mich wirklich.
