"Hands down the BEST!!!!!!!!!"5.0 starson by ninja95
Pros: Great balance of bass and mids
Cons: None...if you can afford them.
Summary: If you are an Audiophile as I am you can do yourself a favor and just get these first. I have bought nearly everything that is on the market in the last year. I am motorcyclist and a musician, so that means I want the best in all my toys.
I have tried the entire Shure plug line except the E2c, the Ultimate Ears Super.fi 5 Pro Isolation Earphones, all the Etymotics Labs versions, and a set of custom set of plugs from the earplugstore.com called the Challengers. I kept the Challengers because that worked well enough for me to use on the bike and in the studio. After about 6 months of use the right plug started cutting in and out and will need to be sent back to the lab that created them. This would mean me being without a set of plugs for my ride and commute. That just would not do for me. So off I went to find a replacement pair for those jobs.
This set of E5c's are as comfortable as the custom plugs that I have, but not as comfortable as my Bose phones that cover my ear. A note on those Bose headphones, they get really hot on my ears if i leave them on more than an hour or so and I don't have that problem with my E5c's.
If you want the best possible set of plugs for your bus or subway commute you need look any further then the Shure E5c.
MAN that sounds like a commercial plug...
