5.0 out of 5 stars A great sound !, 28 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Etymotic HF3 Stereo Headset with Apple Awareness App, Inline Control, Earbuds - Cobalt Blue (Electronics)
I wondered about spending this much on ear phones. But in audio it's true, more often than not, you get what you pay for. The sound isolation is excellent, I travel on the tube in London every day, and these block out background noise fantastically. You only need to turn up the volume by one notch, if at all, rather than cranking up loud to drown out the train.

The sound quality is great too, you really do hear things that you don't pick up on cheaper earphones, you can pick out individual instruments in a completely new way. Beats anything else I have listened with in the past.

The only thing to consider is that you have to insert these quite deep into the ear to work, they really are "in" your ear, rather than just sitting on the outer part of the ear canal. There are a wide range of tips supplied you can swap between to find what works for you, I found the standard silicon tips worked best for me, but you need to try them all to find what suits you. The "in ear" approach feels a bit odd to begin with, but I got used to it after a few uses, and ultimately gives a good audio result.
