Audio is great frequence response is pleasant and flat but build. Sound is terrific frequence response is great and flat but establish top quality is just terrible. I have made use of it for much less than a calendar year, the wires are already slipping apart and the left side doesnt have any audio coming out anymore (i imagine the break in the wire is at the 3. If you want awesome seems and do not thoughts replacing them just about every yr, go in advance, but or else could want to assume two times about it.

Terrific solution, i really like the etymotic headphones. Genuinely purely natural sound and the isolation signifies you can appreciate the resource with no owning to enhance volume too large.

Excellent in virtually each and every way… but rather ‘polite’. Partly, i’m positive, this is for the reason that this is my initial expertise with balanced armature driver ‘phones, but though i can not fault the performance in most ways i do discover these just a small recessed and missing in pleasure. Just a personalized thing i guess, but i crave a little bit additional physicality and dynamics. Obtaining mentioned that, on acoustic materials they are wonderful. Vocals are tasty, strings very real. Rockers should really possibly glimpse somewhere else, but you almost certainly understood that.Here are the specifications for the Etymotic Research ER23-HF3-BLACK-I HF3 In-Ear Headset:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Tight, accurate bass with crystal clear high frequency detail
  • Great sound accuracy with 85% accuracy score
  • Noise isolation with 35 dB-42dB
  • Stylish and great fitting with option of four different ear buds

Great substitution for an aged pair of shure e2c. I have been applying a trusty pair of shure e2c earphones for the previous 7 or so several years and determined they were thanks for an upgrade. Although the seem top quality is however excellent and they’re undamaged, i resolved i preferred a headset with a microphone for use on meeting phone calls. The etymotics are a good replacement, they’re significantly lighter pounds in feel than the shures, but sense adequately solid. The cables are thinner and they’re significantly less noticeable to wear. Seem excellent is good, i have had no challenges with the good quality of the microphone when utilizing on meeting phone calls the two with skype and typical mobile calls. They are comfy ample to put on all working day and the seem quality is fantastic on new music as it is on phone calls.

These are the 2nd pair of these i have acquired. Could not go back again to not acquiring them immediately after the very first pair were destroyed.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • I absolutely love these earphones (I bought more as presents for family
  • I hope the build quality of these are ok as I had a pair of 4s for 6 years that were fantastic. I mistakenly bought the B&O H3s.
  • Poor product control – parts missing

Will not do as excellent a task with sound cancellation as i experienced hoped. Does not enable as substantial a max quantity as i experienced hoped.

Higher good quality in ear’s, which are outstanding price for money. . As a phase supervisor, the high quality of my songs is extremely crucial to me. I have tried out a good deal of earphones around the many years and i have to say that for the price tag these are first class. There are quite a few other brand names on the sector that are approximately twice as pricey and simply do not produce the identical sound high quality. I would have no hesitation​ in recommending these to fellow gurus as nicely as other individuals who basically want to pay attention to their songs in the most element possible.

I absolutely love these earphones (i bought more as presents for family. I absolutely love these earphones (i bought more as presents for family members), they are comfortable and they do block out all noise whilst offering really good sound quality. I do recommend them however i also recommend buying the insurance offered by amazon on them as i just had my first pair replaced due to one earphone no longer working. This was after 4 months of every day continuous use (most days morning to evening). This being said i haven’t treated them very nice as i’ve had the occasional phone/laptop drop or otherwise dramatical earphones wire pulled.

Poor product control – parts missing. I have had these before and love them – but so disappointed that they came with the ear piece i use (large flange) missing. I guess i can use my old ones – but not the standard i expect for this price.

And they are simply wonderful. I do favour all-round accuracy over any artificial. I’ve been using the hf3 for a few years now, and they are simply wonderful. I do favour all-round accuracy over any artificial sensation of bass, so these suit me well. You absolutely need to get a good seal – of the supplied tips, only the foam achieved this for me. As they aren’t very convenient, i gave the etymotic “gliders” a go (product code er38-17). These mushroom-shaped smooth foam tips give me a great seal and are far more comfortable.

Good headphones, not very durable. First and foremost, these are excellent headphones. When i bought my first pair they had a special offer which allowed me to get injection-molded, silicone, earbuds; i have used them with every subsequent pair. That brings me to the reason i only gave them three starts: i’ve owned four pair because with daily use the wires break, normally at the bend where they connect to the jack. I get almost exactly one year of use out of them before they bust and then i’m off to buy another pair. I try and take good care of the headphones and keep them wrapped up in their little pouch when not in use but like clockwork, 12 months after i buy a pair, they break. I keep buying them because, as i said, they are great headphones, but don’t expect them to stand up to any kind of normal use.

High quality in ear’s, which are exceptional value for money. . As a stage manager, the quality of my music is very important to me. I have tried a lot of earphones over the years and i have to say that for the cost these are first class. There are several other brands on the market that are nearly twice as expensive and simply do not deliver the same sound quality. I would have no hesitation​ in recommending these to fellow professionals as well as others who simply want to listen to their music in the most detail possible.

Third pair, fantastic sound at the price and very comfortable, but don’t abuse the wires. I am currently on my third pair of these earphones/headset. Pros: light, very comfortable, great rich soundscape with lots of detail in the mid- to high-range. Sound much better to me than other headphones i’ve tried anywhere near this price. Lovely thin cable, with soft flexible outer sheathing material (some sort of elastomer, i suppose). 2 year manufacturer’s warranty (you have to return it to them in the us). Cons: with extended rough handling (i. Daily use on my commute), the wire sheathing material split on my first two pairs revealing the inner insulated wires near to the 3. 5mm plug, the y-splitter and/or the earbuds. They still worked when this happened, but it was clearly not ideal and they then looked broken and fragile (this was the reason i replaced my first two pairs). Suggest you are as gentle with it as you can be handling them. So far, 14 months in, the sheath on the wire for this third pair is still intact.

Best sounding earphones i have ever used. Difficult to track down buds and filters if you live in the uk so have to rely on ebay. Important point: look after the cable. I always kept it in the supplied pouch too, to avoid tangles. 5 years in however and the cable has come loose around the jack. Would like to see etymotic use slightly thicker cables or even the ‘flat’ style of cable. Overall its a tough one to recommend, knowing this design flaw. Sound-wise however, these are peerless.

If you want nice sounds and don’t mind replacing them every year, go ahead, but otherwise might want to think twice about it.

Very nice and clear sound though i had to get some. Very nice and clear sound though i had to get some smaller ear buds as the smallest that came with these was too big for my ears.

Great sound quality for listening to music then i can take calls on them. For some reason they are much longer than my previous er4i – which is really annoying as i can no longer use them under a motorcycle helmet so -1 mark for that.

Sounds great – build quality leaves something to be desired. The headphones sound absolutely fantastic and the isolation is great. You can put these on and the world around you disappears and all you can hear is your music – great for commutingthe sound is very neutral, which i really like, it’s not bass-heavy so if you’re a fan of pumping bass you may want to look elsewhere. I prefer to think of it as the sound is as the artist intended. The microphone and three-button control work on my iphone, ipad and macbook exactly as intended – just like an apple headset. The build quality does concern me, i had to return two sets before i got a working one. Full credit to amazon for sorting it out quickly though. The first set i got sent had a crackle coming from the right earbud, and the second set’s right earbud barely worked at all. I’ve used etymotic products in the past and never had a problem so i’m hoping this was just an isolated incident. But they really do sound great and i do recommend them.

Just a couple minor issues. . The mc2’s are great earphones, no doubt about that. Sonically, the spectrum is very flat so you don’t get any bias towards bass, mids or treble. If you want tooth rattling bass, look elsewhere. If you want accurate reproduction, these could be for you. Just two minor things though. First, they could do with being a little louder. I find myself cranking up the volume on my nexus 5 fairly high with these, compared to my old beyerdynamic’s. Second, getting these to fit right and create good isolation is trial and error.

Excellent quality earphones. Bought these earphones based on a friend’s recommendation and no regretsonce inserted fully in ears, they cancel noise and project high quality sounds without over use of bass or treble. Have used other brands like klipsh, seinheisser, sony, etc and these are definitely top for quality.

This pair of hf3’s replaced a pair that i had lost. The sound quality is great and the style of the ear buds really helps to keep external noise influence out.

Good news these are black and not blue, buy from amazon. . Sold by amazon (no third-party phew) you’ll see a drop down box for these which states blue or black if you select black you’ll notice it’s for a different 1-button pair – so make sure you leave that box checked for “blue” and go with the colour on the title “etymotic research balanced armature in-ear headset with 3-button control and mic – black” if you’re after the hf3 in black. Okay the hf3 aren’t bad but i have to disagree with the “accurate bass” in the description, sure i can get a good seal which gives me a little bass but it’s just not enough and it’s certainly not accurate, i have plenty of studio monitors that are accurate which have 10 times the bass these do and they’re very neutral (mdr-7506, mdr7509hd, hd25-1 ii). The etymotic design here is triple flange (the same as you buy from a chemist or a hardware store) except they’ve had a hole drilled though them so you can hear what comes out of the single – yeah single balanced drivers in each ear, you get an assortment of other fits included. Sadly the triple flange are only provided in a small and medium – there is no large pair as i don’t think etymotic makes. The best people with large ear canals can do is use the grey foam provided which is great but only lasts around 2 weeks before you have to hunt around and buy replacements – if you can find genuine ones that is, in the uk it’s not easy, i don’t really like that brita, nespresso kind of lock-in model. For comfort and at around the same price point i’d totally recommend the klipsch x10i which i think are the most comfortable in ear headphones around, all ear canals are oval shaped and klipsch unfairly owns the patent from 30 years ago for “oval” earbuds, the x10i have a slightly warm tone and they have bass – yeah bass. Not bose / beats overexagerrated artificial bass, but more like shure se535 bass – something the hf3 just doesn’t have, if you’re a musician – bass player/drummer one listen with the hf3 and you’ll wonder where your sound went, i’m certainly not a klipsch fan but i think the x10i is the better buy here.
