    Time for some new IEMs

    I'm looking for some good "fun" bass but not muddy. I primarily listen to electronic music like trance and hardstyle. My budget is about $80-$150. I have my eye on a few already: Sony xb90ex, Shure 215, Etymotic mc3, Atrio m5. I'm leaning towards the shures or etymotics because they go deeper in...

    Ultimate Ears 600 vs Etymotic ER-6i or Etymotic mc3 for a non audiophile iPhone user

    Hi, l am looking for a ~100 dollar in ear buds to replace my Meelec 9P's for my iPhone. I listen to rock (both classic and new), rap, and sometimes pop. I don't really consider myself an audiophile, I just want a pair of buds that block out some noise, feel comfy, and sound pretty good.   I...

    Have Ety MC3 and HF5 but want fuller sound

    I recently was turned on to the beauty of etymotic research IEM's.  I am VERY happy with their noise isolation capabilities and the sound I have to say is spot on.  I do however tend to prefer a more "full" or warm sound.  Can anyone recommend something in the $50-125 range that would have...

    Is Bass the Main Difference Between Ety MC3 and HF3?

    The price difference is around $50. Justifies the difference? I am not a bass junkie but wont mind it on songs that uses them more. I read reviews that the MC3(or 5) is way bland and not exciting, so I wont be headbanging on it playing rock music? Will I do on the HF3 or is the bass stil low...

    Please Explain "Boring"(of Etymotic HF3/MC3) to a Noob Like Me...

    Im researching and will buy next week. One of my top choices is Ety HF3 or MC3. What prevents me from really making this my top priority is people say its boring. Now as a noob(who only uses the free earphones from iPhone and never owned an IEM), I dont know what boring is in terms of SQ. So can...

    Dumb question... where's the serial number on a Etymotic MC5 / MC3?

    So I'm trying to register my ety mc3 online, and it asks me for my phone's serial number, and it's supposed to be on the phone's body.  Now I've searched up and down the earphone and nowhere do I find any numbers printed!  I've also searched the packaging but the numbers printed there do not...

    Etymotic MC5/MC3 - just how bad are they?

    I'm thinking about getting some of these, but from what I've read on here, opinion on them seems to be... Meh :-/. I have no experience with the Ety sound, so wouldn't be disappointed with their sound from that perspective. So what exactly is is about them that is so underwhelming? Thanks, Dave.

    Etymotic MC5 for jazz + travel on flights?? Is MC3 the same? $75 max budget

    Hi! Just wondering what you experts think of MC5 for noise isolating on flights? My budget is around $75 maximum...sound-wise, I listen primarily to jazz so don't need over-blown bass that is found in many IEM's these days for RAP and HIP-HOP stuff. Looking for clarity and sound quality...

    Budget IEMs review--Panasonic RP-HJE355 posted 18 February 2013

    Intro I am a firm believer in EQ.  Thanks to PiccoloNamek's EQ guide, and with some inventions of my own, these days I can spend less than an hour with just about any new pair of IEMs and tweak them to sound better than anything I've heard without EQ, at any price. (and I've heard up to $400...

    Hey, As above, I'm considering getting a pair of headphone, earphones or IEMs to use with my phone while on the move since I just picked up an E7 (which I'll be using with an E9 hopefully as my home amp/dac combo) but obviously I can use the E7 while on the move.   I was wondering what...

    [Sorry, just realised that I should have posted this question in the dedicated advice thread - request for mods to delete]

    My pair of Klipsch S4i's have decided to give up on me, and I'm hesitant to purchase another pair, as I expect that flimsy cable would do the same thing again, so I'm looking at other options around this price range. Unfortunately, while I appreciate that it greatly restricts my choices, the...

    does anyone make a decent set of earbuds w/mic?

    As titled, with the amount of mobile/cell phones that have good mp3 players and 4 pole jack sockets as the output you'd think most manufacturers would make versions of all their earphones/iems/etc that have a microphone built in for mobile call use.. I've seen plenty of IEMs that have, but no...
