    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for the price, won't last forever This is my third pair of Etymotics after the ER-6 and ER-6i, and easily the best. Sound quality remains excellent and the MC5 has proved much more durable. Oddly, the wire insulation is now beginning to shred in places after 3 years, but I've covered the damaged areas with electrical tape with no loss in performance.Sound quality is excellent except for slightly recessed bass as many have noted. However, I use a FiiO E11 headphone amp with my iPod which adds some bass emphasis and the result is near perfect for the vast majority of music I listen to, nearly all acoustic. The great noise isolation is a huge plus when sitting in or waiting for planes, trains and buses or using the treadmill or stationary bike. I do not recommend these for running or biking outside for safety reasons as you may not hear approaching vehicles or pedestrians. March 7, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing These are by far the best in-ear headphone I have ever owned. They shine in every aspect. December 21, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Tough little set of earphones I have owned a pair of these for several years. I'm no expert, but they sound way, way better than any other earbuds I have ever owned. I mostly use them to listen to music, either from a small mp3/wma type player, from my computer, or from a CD player. One of the really great things about these is how much exterior sound they block out. Without any music coming through them they are like a very good pair of earplugs. I use the standard size 3-flange eartips, and I get them way in my ear canal. They take a little getting used to, and after a while they can sometimes become uncomfortable, but every earbud-type of headphone I have ever used gets uncomfortable, most much sooner than these.But I have to tell you I am extremely rough on these earphones--I can't tell you how many times I have gotten up and ripped these earphones out of my ears or the jack out of the computer, probably over a hundred times (I'm a klutz#--and they have held up extremely well. I've even rolled over them #both the earphone end and the jack end) with my office chair a couple of dozen times with no ill effect. Well, yes, the cable housing near the jack has finally worn away, but that isn't any fault of the earphones, just my carelessness.I'm impressed and will be buying another pair soon so I can use the new ones at home and take the old ones out and about with me. And I think they are relatively inexpensive since I would have gone through numerous pairs of cheaper earbuds in the same few years I've used these. December 5, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by By far the best noise-isolating ear buds available These are by miles the best noise-isolating ear buds I've used, and I've tried easily 10 other pairs that claimed to be great, but aren't. Countless hours on long dirt bike rides make noise isolation essential, otherwise you have to crank the volume just to hear anything. With these you can keep the volume down, shut out the outside craziness and enjoy your music. October 23, 2013
    Rated 4 out of 5 by A great deal for the price. I have recently purchased a set and I mostly agree. Very balance across most frequencies. Very good with the midbass, mid, highs, and even sub lows. There are two issues. The lows that would normally be felt with a punch without the intestine rumble (probably 60-100 Hz) are a little lacking, even though the very low (20-40Hz) are well balanced. Also the extreme high (above 15KHz) is a little lacking, this does not have so much of a directly audible effect as it does a harmonic effect affecting apparent stereo imaging.Isolation is good with a leak about 6KHz, probably resonating through the actual body of the ear bud, since the leak is at the same frequency as tapping the back of the ear bud on a table. It sounds quite odd when typing.That said, I do like them very much, although I have nicknamed them my "brain pokers" because of the depth to which they insert. August 29, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by best ear phones i have found These are the best ear phones I have found. This will be my third pair. They are the ones that really fit in the ear canal to completely block out side noise. They are very comfortable and sound great too. The small 3 flange fit my little ear canal perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by The very best earphone products My first Etymotic earphone was the ER6i. It was purchased as a gift from my professional mobile sound DJ son. This earphone was a revelation. Wonderful sound quality and total comfort. My second purchase was the ER7-MC5. Same wonderful sound quality and total comfort. July 2, 2013
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Not Completely Impressed I bought these to replace a pair of well worn and much loved ER6i's. They are not event close in sound quality. Also disappointing is the physical size of the earbud which is larger then the ER6i. I'm a motorcyclist and wear earbuds under my helmet. These buds are larger then the ER6i's. The above said, the quality appears much better and the design is more robust. The sound quality is satisfactory but the DB isolation does not seem as good as the ER6i's. Had I never experienced the ER6i's I probably would not know the difference and be perfectly happy... June 22, 2013
