Performance

Got these a month ago and have been listening to my entire MP3 collection over and over again. Rediscovering notes and musical effects which I never noticed before from even my 5.1 THX certified Altec Lansing computer speakers. PRO: The sound quality is superb. Offers very crisp trebles and a very mature bass (great for any contemporary music). I would strongly suggest the ER6-I over the ER6, simply for the enhanced bass. CON: Fanged earpieces can be a bit difficult to get used to. You really have to stick those babies in there to hear the full bass (otherwise it's just tinny). Also, BE CAREFUL of where you're walking/driving when wearing these. They will block out ALL other sounds. I no longer hear cars graze past me just inches away while I'm jogging. The experience may startle you.

After going thru about 7 different sets of throw away earbuds I decided to bit the bullet and get the etymotics. I cannot fully explain the clarity of the music that these buds deliver but let's just say, "the music is in your head" when wearing them. Only problem is w/ the flimsy cords; after 1 1/2 yrs of use, one of the cords broke inside the plug-in case. I do wish the construction was a bit more solid.

Love these!

by Luna on 2/13/2007

I've been using these earphones for over a year and absolutely love them. They did not have the 2-flange eartips when I received mine, but I easily remedied the situation by cutting off the largest flange on the 3-flange eartip. Yes - you can hear your footsteps when you walk - but they are sooo much more comfortable and secure feeling than other earphones I've tried - I can put up with the footstep noise. On a plane they are the best - virtually blocks out all extraneous sounds. Try them, you'll like them.
