Paradigm brings their "Studio" sound to your ears
Long known for building high-quality loudspeakers, Paradigm has taken their talents to the headphone game. After studying how sound from loudspeakers impacts the ear, they created the Paradigm SHIFT E2m to reproduce the speaker experience in an affordable earbud. The E2m is voice-matched to Paradigm's high-end Studio series speakers for an accurate presentation with impressive bass extension and low distortion. So you can enjoy the Paradigm sound not just from home speakers, but anywhere you go.

The E2m includes three sizes of ear tips so you can find a comfortable fit that provides proper noise isolation. Available in black or white, these compact earbuds can accompany you just about anywhere, keeping you in touch with your music.

Paradigm SHIFT E2m Reviews
Average Customer Review:
Great product; very happy
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Overall I'm very pleased with the ear phones. The sound quality, especially the bass response, is very good. The package includes three sizes of in-ear silicone pieces, which is handy. The carrying case is compact and easy to carry (I keep it in my briefcase for use on the train). I like the fabric-covered cords -- very flexible and easy to untangle. Passive external sound attenuation is good. The only negative I can identify is that the in-cord mic/control doesn't include a volume control. Having that would make these perfect in my mind, but it's not that big of a deal because you can change the volume on the device.
Pros: Bass response, in-ear fit, overall build quality.
Cons: No volume control (minor).

Paradigm Shift In-Ear Headphone Design: The Paradigm Shift series in-ear headphones are the result of thirty years of sound research and product development. Paradigm's unique understanding of what makes a speaker sound great in a listening room is applied to the design of their in-ear headphones. Paradigm uses sophisticated measurement tools and proprietary algorithms while accounting for the psycho-acoustic effects of the ear structure in developing its design. This allows Paradigm to faithfully reproduce the performance of Paradigm's freestanding loudspeakers in an in-ear headphone.
E2m In-Ear Headphones: The Paradigm Shift E2m in-ear headphones are voiced matched to Paradigm's high-end Studio Series speakers. They employ a single 8mm super-neodymium driver in each earphone. These in-ear headphones deliver the full audio spectrum with unbelievable clarity, deep bass, and perfect tonal balance.
Multiple Ear Tips: The Paradigm Shift E2m in-ear headphones come with 3 size of silicone ear tips (s/m/l) to ensure a tailored fit that further maximizes overall sound quality and comfort.
In-Line Remote + Mic: The in-line remote gives you Play/Pause control for your music and answer/end control for your phone calls from various manufacturers of smartphones. The integrated omni-directional microphone lets you carry on your side of the conversation, while listening to the caller's voice through the earphones. The in-line remote + mic also supports voice control for hands-free music playback and communication (device also must support this function).
Tangle Resistant Cable: The Paradigm Shift E2m in-ear headphones feature a tangle-resistant, cloth exterior cable terminated by a gold-plated 3.5mm connector for excellent signal transfer.
Carrying Case: The included carrying case helps to protect the in-ear headphones during storage and transport.
