I am looking to buy a nice pair of headphones and i am sure that i want earbud head phones. My dad has a pair of the Etymotic Er-4's and the sound is great. After i listen to them for awhile they begin to get uncomfortable in my ears. I am looking mainly at the Shure E3c's and The Etymotic ER-6's ($200 is my maximum price to spend). I was seeing if anyone could offer their advice on which of those two to go with, also if they're are any others. Thanks.
Yeah, my er6s and 4p's go in a bit deeper than the Shure E3's I tried. For me personally it was a more comfie fit for the etys though. Obviously lots of people have different opinions on this, so YMMV.
i've only used the E3c, so i can't give a direct audio comparison, besides there's plenty of threads for that already. but in terms of comfort, i've never had anything jammed in my ear like this before, always used earbuds or open phones, but i don't find it to be that intrusive. true it takes a bit of getting used to in the first day or two, and it's awkward when i first insert it, but once it's in, it's like i'm not even wearing anything.
