Shure E3c-n Sound Isolating Earphones (Black)

Posted

Pros: Fnatastic isolation, strong mids

Cons: terrible soundstage, notorious Shure cable quality, expensive

E3c were my first serious headphones, and whilst I loved them at the time, I would not recommend them to anyone now.

 

The best thing about them is the isolation, it's fantastic, and the best I've experienced (not tried ety's). However, the cables crapped out on my after a year of use, and an upgrade illustrated to me how incredibly limited these phones are to mids. It leaves you with a "muffled" feeling.

 

The e3c has since been eclipsed by a huge variety of single armature driver IEMs at much lower price points like the soundmagic pl50 etc. I would only recommend to someone who is really desperate for good isolation above everything else.

Description:

In sleek black, to go with some of today's newest MP3 and other audio players. Originally developed for professional musicians, the E3c combines WideBand MicroDriver technology with a sound isolating design to deliver rich, detailed sound with improved high end while blocking outside noise -- ideal for optimizing your listening experience with portable MP3, DVD, and CD players as well as all other audio sources. The E3c's in ear design works like an earplug to block background noise naturally. This enables you to listen comfortably at lower volumes-even in loud environments. And unlike bulky headphones utilizing active noise cancellation technology, no artifacts are introduced into your listening experience. Sound isolating earphones are also much smaller and don't require batteries. The E3c's speakers are constructed with studio-grade components to produce exceptional audio clarity, delivering detailed highs and enhanced bass that allows you to hear parts of your music you've never heard before. The E3c comes with a stylish, compact carrying case. The cable spool inside provides a convenient, tangle-free way to store your earphones.
