Detailed sound and imaging. These isolate noise very well.
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I was reluctant on buying these seeing as there were no reviews and being unfamiliar with Etymotic. Well, don't let that deter you from purchasing these. These bring out a lot of detail and are great with imaging compared to the Klipsch earbuds I have been using. The Klipsch have more bass, but they lack the detail, imaging, and noise isolating that these have. Happy with these. Definitely a brand I'll keep on my list from now on.
Pros: Like I said, more details in the music. These are very comfortable earbuds for walking outside. Noise isolation is little too good. Gotta be careful wearing these outside, as you can barely hear anything around you.
Cons: These are not good for taking in and out of your ears every few minutes. Once set in your ears you want to keep them in there. They go deep in the ear canal.
