Our take on the Paradigm SHIFT E3m by Crutchfield's David Brown
Paradigm's Signature sound for earbuds
Long known for building high-quality loudspeakers, Paradigm has now applied their deft touch to in-ear headphones. After studying how sound from loudspeakers impacts the ear, they created the Paradigm SHIFT E3m to reproduce the speaker experience in an affordable earbud. The E3m is voice-matched to Paradigm's reference-class Signature series speakers. With an emphasis on minimizing distortion, these earbuds deliver an accurate, detailed presentation of your music, from crisp highs all the way down to deep bass. Free your music from the confines of stock earbuds and discover great sound without sacrificing portability.
Answer calls and control your music
The E3m features an in-line microphone and remote for use with compatible smart phones, including Apple® devices. One-touch functionality lets you answer and end calls as well as control music playback. Your music automatically pauses when a call comes in, so you can talk and then get right back to your music.
The E3m 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 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.
E3m In-Ear Headphones: The Paradigm Shift E3m in-ear headphones are voice matched to Paradigm's Monitor 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, extended bass response, and perfect tonal balance.
Multiple Ear Tips: The Paradigm Shift E3m 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 E3m 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.
