Etymotic hf2

 

Superb audio performance. Reasonable price, considering sound quality. Works with iPhone to place and answer calls

The unattractive foam tips will fit some users better than the flanges. Not gym-friendly

If you're looking for excellent audio performance from a cell-phone headset, look no further.

Etymotic HF3 Earphones

 

A very well-known name in the audio world, Etymotic Research has always stood for accuracy and fidelity. Their latest budget-priced model that we recently reviewed - the MC5, successfully extends the company's philosophy to a lower-end market but the...

Stellar noise isolation; impeccably clear, detailed, balanced, and accurate sound; comes in three flavours of varying smartphone functionality

Deep-insertion form factor can take time getting used to; neutral and balanced sound won’t appeal to everyone

The Etymotic HF3 is a thoroughly modern, iPhone-compatible take on the classic Etymotic design philosophy. The single balanced armature transducer produces sound with the highest attainable levels of clarity and detail. Like the flagship ER-4 model,...

An updated in-line remote marks the difference between the hf3 headset and its predecessor.

Detailed, direct and crisp, excellent dynamics, stylish, can take custom buds

Bin your iPhone's headphones and get some Etymotic hf2s. At £100 they're pure indulgence for your ears.

Noise-isolation works a treat. Sound quality's excellent

They're expensive. Not compatible with all MP3 players
