Rated 5 out of 5 by Simply Perfect !! My previous headset was Klipsch x10i and before I had Bose (MIE2) headsets for many years.I was happy with my Klipsch x10i as it was lightweight and the sound was great! It had everything I wanted. I lost them recently :-( Then I was looking for another pair of the same Klipsch x10i, then I found reviews about these Etymotic HF3 and thought I will check it out.Initially I was bit reluctant after seeing those videos on how to fit these in your ears and I thought what if it doesnt fit my ears in the right way as it should. I did initially struggle and was afraid to put these in to the ears thinking that it might go and hit the ear drum and damage it. But then I slowly and carefully tried it for couple of times and with some help from the instructions given in the video, I found the right way to fit these in my ears.For all those who have bought this and feel that it doesnt sound great, please try again! The most important thing about this headset is to you have to find the right fit in to your ears! I am sure you will be able to choose the right ear tips for you and the find the right way of fitting it in to your ears.Wow! Its amazing! I have been thinking that Klipsch x10i had everything. But when I started hearing these, then there is no turning back! I still like the Klipsch x10i, but I like these much more! The noise isolation is great! You dont hear anything in the outside world and once you have find the right fit, you dont feel that it is in your ears. The cord is longer than the Klipsch and it is very useful. The curved design of the 3.5mm jack is very helpful.I mostly listen to ALAC in my iphone and the the sound is perfect and complete. Bass is at the right level.I like all the ear tips that comes with this product, the most preferred one is the gray ER38-18 3 flange ear tips.Happy listening! February 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic headphones! Best in class I ALMOST returned these buds after struggling initially, convinced I had a proper seal yet hearing little more than TIN. I mean low end in absentia - as in zero bass. I was shocked. Really? The reviews I'd read were overwhelmingly positive and while some pointed to these buds as being quite neutral I'm an advocate of neutrality and not looking for overpowering bass. But I DO want to experience the low end of spectrum and I spent much of the day seeking a replacement. So read on for the good news...Fortuitously while at dinner I continued to refer back to those many reviews and figured I'd give it one more effort since I concluded so many people couldn't have such poor taste. Lo and behold, boom! I reviewed the video Etymotic has on their website, achieved a proper seal and finally came to appreciate what enthusiasts see in this product. It's all in the seal! With these buds more so than any other I've ever owned.These ear buds are sensational. Etymotic hf3's deliver big, bold sound articulated in an utterly neutral fashion without any discernible coloration. And this is after just a few hours so they've not been properly broken in yet. By this time next week I expect they'll sound considerably better - more open and a slightly larger sound stage. The bass, just so you know, is NOT overstated and is not what you'll get from Bose or Monster or Beats.As a frame of reference I also own:1) Marley Destiny TTR2) UE Superfi 53) UE Superfi 104) AudioTechnica ATH-M50s /LE5) Too many Sony's to mentionAnd, my Home Theater is powered by Krell running Dynaudio speakers.So, while I admit ever so humbly I am by no means an authority on creating that perfect seal first time around, I DO know a little bit about high end audio so take it from this music lover: if your budget is anywhere from $100-$300 don't knock yourself out looking any further....UNLESS you have issues with IN-EAR buds. These bad boys rule the roost under $200 WITHOUT DOUBT and while I've not listened to all buds between $200-$300 I DO have two pair of Ultimate Ear buds in that price range and they pale in comparison to the Etymotic.Also, know that once purchased you may have Etymotic create custom tips for your buds- something I may just consider down the road. For now, I'm using one of the stock foam tips provided in the kit as I find they provide a tighter seal and deliver a little more richness to the listening experience than do the proprietary gel tips that ship on these buds. I've got some Comply Foam Tips coming as KNOW I'll get some use out of them once they arrive January 5, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wonderful Big sound and quality at a reasonable price.yes ounce you hear them you'll tell everybody about them. mmmmmmmm Wow! December 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Product is amazing! I am a huge music guy. I'm the guy who doesn't buy the sound system in his car for loudness, but for quality improvement. I can also appreciate music being distorted, or crystal clear.That being said...These headphones have an AMAZING clearness to them that you won't find with anything else. Every detail can be heard, can be caught and almost inspected it.The best way I can compare this headset with other headphones is that of analyzing a painting. You can look at headphones that will put you behind the barrier, looking from a distance, or you can buy these headphones and hold the painting in your hand.The painting is subjective to the music you are listening to. You want a mona lisa? Higher Bit-rates, well encoded music. You want to hold your daughters knock-off finger paint? 64kb rate. Literally, these headphones will make poorly encrypted music sound WORSE, but good encrypted shine.The only downside is the bass volume as you raise the overall volume; it seems to drop off. Even though it drops off, I can say that they are still VERY accurate, and you can hear the bass. When you are wearing these though, the bass won't be your key focus. The clarity in the mids and highs will appeal to you and pull you in and forget the bass has any lacking at all.The quality just can't be passed up. They're like Adidas massage flip flops. Once you get over how far in your ear these buggers go, and you focus more on the music as your comfort increases, you'll find that their is a price / quality ratio that you just can't pass up. Two year warrantee is awesome too by the way. I also like the whole out-of-warrantee deal for a discount on their product line. :-)So go out and grab a pair! With their noise-isolating enclosure into your ear, you can inspect the mona lisas of your playlist by yourself over and over again with the biggest grin on your face. November 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sound of the universe before the Big Bang I'm a review junkie, and am thorough with my research. So, I had my eye on the hf3 for a while and finally got a great deal for one. They do not disappoint. Noise reduction - well like I said before the Big Bang - no sound. Then connect with your ipod, android, mp3, etc...audiophile quality sound. A word of caution - be careful when you walk in the streets with these on...you cannot hear the cars, traffic, people, anything apart from your music. The noise isolation is that good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Great sound, poor cable. I love these headphones. However, I will be on to my 3rd pair in less than 2 years. First pair the jack snapped off in my iphone with less than 2 months use; rare case and it was under warranty. Next problem.. the cable for the headphones is not very durable; it frays and becomes weak. Daily wear and tear and wrapping the headphones up tends to weaken the cable exposing the wires and cutting out the audio. I would attempt to splice and re-solder the ear piece but but there is no way to get the cable out. I have never seen cables fray like the hf3's. The material comes off almost like that of a cheese string. Even though I am not happy with the cable, the sound quality that these earbuds give keeps me coming back. When you release a new line please use the cable from the ER-4's or at least incorporate phone control/mic with the ER-4's September 22, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Cables fraying and wire cables exposed Bought the headset in 2010. Cables fraying and wire cables exposed after about 1 years of use. Always kept in the case, but plastic is just splitting without any reason. Be aware, this is NOT covered by warranty (at least this is what I was told). Would like to attach the picture hot it looks but the there is no place.Bottom line is -- the build quality is just not that great. August 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 Great sound, no unwanted "back-ground" noise I was working in a loud environment (server room), and needed to find a good set of earplugs. At the same time I was looking for a nice pair of headphones for my commute to work.This fit the bill perfectly. On the NYC subway I only heard my music just fine, leaving the volume at only 50%-70% of max and when I got to work I could unplug from the music and not lose my hearing when spending excessive time in the server room.This product not only saved my sanity, but my hearing.
