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,...

Review: Etymotic hf3 Earphones

 

Many of you probably haven't heard of Etymotic before. They only manufacture high-end audio gear but have definitely made a name for themselves in the consumer audio space in the last few years. Etymotic is known for some of their rather eccentric...

Etymotic Research hf3 review

 

The Etymotic Research canalphone was the original and the Etymotic hf3 sits easily among the very best earphones available at any price. With the hf3, Etymotic Research is offering a superbly balanced earphone/mic combination that will bring out music...

Etymotic hf2

 

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

Balanced Sound Reproduction with Noise Isolation

 

Please read my experience with these because there are some important features you should always consider with headphones and ear buds.

My 1st set of expensive headphones

 

I've never had more than a $12 pair of headphones, so this was a big buy for me. I don't have any other top brand experience to compare against, but these seem great. They don't block as much noise as i expected, but they block enough that my music...

Etymotic HF3

 

Sound quality is second to none ; Selection of ear buds means you can find the solution that suits you ; Handsfee mic very sensitive

Stick out of your ears ; Noise reduction means you really can't hear anything other than the music
