“ These were my first real earphones, and I bought them entirely because they'd been spreading like a plague on a forum I used. Upon first hearing them I was disappointed, but over time they grew on me, and until upgrading to the ER4, they were a firm favourite. Some of my friends couldn't get the fuss, nor understand why anybody would spend a hundred bucks on iPod earphones, but then again...” --BBBS
“ I looked around for a review on these and didnt find many, so bought a pair and heres what i found out. - Nice build quality - Good comfortable fit - Worst cable design I have ever seen (wtf were they thinking?!) - Easy to be driven - Extremely well defined mids & highs (these are not laid back and softsounding!) - Good soundstage...” --fabiosouzajr
“ I loved these buds to bits, they were the perfect everyday headphone. Small and light and comfortable and barely protruded past the outside of your ears. I like the fact that no one can really see them easily.. Very handy and they were well suited for running. I miss mine, unfortunately they broke when someone stepped on the cord whilst I was walking.. So sad about that still. ” --jcotteri

“ These were my first in-ears, and since owning them I've had the Ultimate Ears Triple Fi and the Klipsch Image S3s. I'll be comparing the ER6s to these. I remember the Etymotic's sound being very warm and natural, absolutely never harsh sounding. You could throw it the hissiest, most cymbal-laden music and it would sound wonderfully dark. It really had a...” --ledhed2222
“I bought these last summer during a visit to Taiwan. I had hoped to buy a replacement Audio-Technica CKM500 (which broke) but they have been replaced with the CKR5 which are a bit of a let-down with its bloated bass and congested soundstage. After trying out various headphones, the salesperson suggested the AH-C560, a mid-range Denon IEM released in 2010. Although they have been considered...” --FYLegend
“ I've tried out several pairs of in-ear phones and never got used to the feel of them. These are much more inviting straight away, as several earpads of different sizes are included. I found my size and was off to the races. The cable is a bit short, and I usually have to bring the included extension cable along with me on my commute. This is not a problem, just an...” --phallumontis
“First impression, extreme clarity without being harsh, very bad cable design, people said ER4 lacking bass, either they are are lover of Aurisonics or they didn't get the insertion right with ER4s Even with P to S adaptor, still deliver great bass. fast, precise and great texture. And one of the deepest bass I've heard coming from BA driver. -Sound Overly compressed/brick wall record sound...” --darkinners
Denon’s new $249 AH-C300 may be the biggest, bassiest in-ear monitor in headphone history. Each of the IEM’s seemingly bulky earpieces has one of Denon’s patented Double Air Compression Drivers. It’s an arrangement with dual 11mm drivers, both firing at each other into a chamber that vents directly to your ear. A miniature control wheel gives the same functionality as on...
“Etymotic Mc5 vs. Etymotic Hf5 Both are are very ‘true to the ear’ as Etymotic would say... both have amazing tri-flange eartips for superb noise isolation, best in the business actually... and both led me to feel that clarity was an essential part of my music, perhaps even more so than dynamic bass and shiny treble... but in the end, well, lets just save it for the end, shall we? Mc5 Fullness...” --stevenswall
