"Whoa, I can't believe what I'm hearing"4.5 starson by chuchodude1
Pros: Good Sound, Thick Cords, Lightweight, Blocks Sound
Cons: I could use a little more bass
Summary: These are quite honestly the best headphones I have ever used. I have gone to the Bose store and I tried some TriPorts and the Quiet Comfort II's. They were both really nice but they are big. The E2C's out perform both Bose's headphones. I love these so much, but I want to go back to the old earbuds that came with my Zen, but I can't get the E2C's out of my ears long enough to put the others back in. Like everyone else says, you have to have a good seal for these to work. I can stand the rubber flex tips but the foam tips are so much more comfortable. I've had them for one day and I slept in them last night. There were a couple of times where I woke up to my music and it was almost like I was in a trance, I seriously felt like I was high when I was listening because the sound totally surrounds you. These things are amazing. My parents hate them because now when they want my attention they have to tap my shoulder because they can't hear me. I'm learning to like the behind the ear design of them. At first it is awkward to put them in like that but when you use the plastic tube that slides up, the snugness of them is insane. I could jump around and they wouldn't let loose. I love the highs and mids of these. The bass is there but it definately will not rattle your cage. I guess you can't expect a rattling with earbuds because you can't feel the rumble in your body, but the sound quality is so good. If you have to have a headphone with earth shaking bass these are not the phones for you. Acoustic guitar music sounds so incredible with the E2C's. You can hear every little vibration of the string. I know it will sound weird but my favorite music to listen to on the E2C's is Tenacious D. It is soo crystal clear and you hear things you've never appreciated before. Today I heard Jack Black say fu** right at the end of the song. I've never heard that before. I love these so much I'm thinking of marrying them. I can't imagine what the E5's sound like and I can't wait to be rich enough to buy them. I recomend these to anyone who loves to listen to good, balanced, quality music. A+++++++ Shure!
