I've been lurking these forums for a few years -- and have just decided to post.
I just got my Etymotic Hf3 in the mail. I also own the HJE900 - and while I can say I was happy with them, I wanted to try to get some more isolation, and iPhone controls.
The sounds are (obviously) vastly different -- to the point where I'm a bit in shock.
I listen to Indie, Rock, Classical, Piano, and occasionally Hip-Hop.
The HJE900 blows the Ety away in Bass - this was expected when I bought them. But the Ety's bring out more distinction in the music - instruments are better isolated.
I wanted to get some second opinions on these two IEMs, and experiences with them.
I've read the big thread by Joker - what's interesting is that the sounds, despite being so different, are both rated quite highly - and I agree.
I guess i'm trying to justify my purchase, but also decide which one of these will be the main one I use.
I'm very interested to hear experiences with these IEMS.
