    I am hearing impaired. With the Etymotics I can hear music again

    Great personal service

    Jorge was very helpful to find a solution after the Etymotic ear buts I ordered would not be in in time.
    Through him I found out that my old ones where still under warranty. Now I have 2 pairs. Thanks Jorge

    Don't Believe Everything you hear(other people say)

    I have been looking for a great pair of in ear monitors as I am having some problems with the fit of over ear ones, diffeerent story. I heard these at a local store where they would let you listwn to them if you bought a pair of silicone ear inserts for obviouse reasons. Although they are not the best ones I have tested they are certainly not a 1 star product by any means. Any one listening to them will immediately be able to tell that they are better than anything that comes with any mp3 player and I find they sound just right for their price range. Pay more and you can get better, not always though. I am not sure what the other reviewer was getting at. Earbuds, these included won't give you bass you can feel in your chest. But I founf that these faithfully reproduced low bass notes such as the lowest Organ(pipe) note fron Bach's Toccata Fuge in E I think it is to Taurus pedal notes on Genesis songs. Both are on a disk I use to test speakers and earphones etc. Maybe the guys ears are blown and low bass to him is thousands of watts puming through a huge stack of folded horns that make your pants flap om your legs or something. That kind of bass is beyond any ear bud or earphone and most speaker systems. It u sually has more to do with air movement below 20 HZ than ctual sound waves. Like the feeling you get when a large door shuts hard in a small sealed room. 5-15 Hz stuff. These are goos ear buds for a good price. Sold by the best place with the best gaurantee in the business, no I don't work for Sweetwater. So there is another opinion. You decide!

    Don't spend the money--you will thank me!

    These buds are not cheap. In fact they are premium! They are rated down to 20Hz....don't believe it. They have virtually no bass response. I returned a first pair because I thought they were defective. Evidently they weren't. The accompanying literature specifically states "a deep seal in the ear canal is essential." Any deeper and I'd be ready to testify to congress! Bottom line? My original iPod earphones are 4 times better than these. Guess I'll use my HF 5Blk's to listen to talk radio...or Skype...or...
