Etymotic Earphones

Excellent qualty, excellent bass reproduction. Only problem is they are not cheap, and I keep losing them. I don't think it's their fault. It might be but how can I be sure?

    I have a pair of Etymotic Isolator 6i headphones. I had to buy the supplementary foam earpieces for people with pathologically small ear canals. I found the sound quality surprisingly good once I finally got them inserted all the way so there was no air gap around the edges. Hard to believe sound (including bass) so good can come from such a small package. Clipping the wire to my shirt prevents it from making loud wire-attached-to-a-tin-can sounds every time I turn my head. If earplugs agitate you -- like make your ear canals itchy or anything -- then these headphones may do the same. It's just like wearing earplugs.

    These are truly awesome earphones. They effectively block out background sound w/out forcing you to blast out your eardrums. The sound quality is very clear w/surprisingly good bass for such tiny speakers (I listen to a lot of electronica w/pounding beats so good bass is essential for me). Handles more delicate classical music well too. Also, they are super-comfortable and lightweight- ideal for endurofest rides and runus. The extralong cord is nice but can get tangled a bit too easily

    Etymotic makes some of the best earbuds around. Comfortable, well-built, sound awesome. The only thing better is Ultimate Ears.

    These are 1000% the best headphones I have ever experienced. Yes, I say "experienced" intentionally...this is far cooler than just listening to music. The earphones fit so nicely in your earhole that they create a personal environment unlike any other. You can see the world around you but the only thing you hear is whatever you are piping through the wires. Extra bonus...instead of busting your eardrums with Metallica at top volume to drown out the world, you can preserve your ears and listen at a healthy volume and STILL drown out the world. BTW - if you have a crappy stereo in your car, DO NOT drive with these on. You'll have no chance of hearing the po-po when they pull you over for dancing like a teenage girl when you jamm to Xtina.

    These are fantastic earbuds. I use them at work to surround myself in aural bliss inside my little square cubicle. No loud talker, nose blower, gaffawer, a-hole can interlope my nirvana.

    I now work in an environment that can get pretty noisy with the thump of the bass in the music from a retail store downstairs, up to 3 street performers at a time on the street out the window, and a dozen co-workers occasionally in lively discussions in our large shared office with brick walls. It's a fun environment, but sub-optimal for concentrated software development. I surgically insert my Etymotic earphones (yes, it's a procedure) and I am suddenly all alone in absolute silence except for the pure sound of the Canadian Brass and English Chamber Orchestra, or Nora Jones, or Orbital, or Fatboy Slim, or ... I'm still not able to use the Etymotics for long periods of time because of the pressure in my ear canal, but I'm getting used to them and working up to it.

    This was my first set of Etymotics and it won't be my last. I made the mistake of using these in the gym though and they are not built for active movement. I use these when I'm travelling and I use my Shure's when I'm working out.

    Lightweight, form fitting and darn good sound quality. At $90 these are a great mid-range option for those of us that are too absent minded (or broke) to spring for a $500 pair of Shures.

    Designed by a company who also makes hearing aids - these are designed for quality sound without any hearing damage. Fit nicely in the ear and have lightweight cables - - After using these, you'll be stuck wonderin "why oh why" u ever used those free earbuds from macapple.
