- Etymotic = the best noise reducing earphonesReview by john
- Long ago I had a pair of Shure headphones that were like ear plugs, they reduced outside noise to almost nothing, and also produced very good sound. When they wore out after several years I began a journey to find ear phones that were as good for motorcycling. Shure did not make the same model any longer. I researched and bought many different kinds of ear buds. Most of them just didn't have the noise reducing capacity to allow them to be heard at a reasonable volume at highway speeds. A lot of them just had poor sound quality. I finally bought a set of Etymotic HF 5's and found the head phones I had been looking for. The noise reduction is very good. Using these I can't hear a damn thing but music. The sound quality is very good. I have had some high end earphones that had better sound quality, but they would be useless on a motorcycle. I would like to have a listen to the ER 4's to see if they're worth twice the price. Over all, these are very good. (Posted on 5/24/16)
- Etymotic HF5 Review by Paul
The HF5 is my second pair of Etymotics and I must say they have proved disappointing. The previous pair, in which one side failed with no repair option, worked much better.
The noise attenuation was more effective such that I could hear music well at highway speeds. With the HF5's, the output is hashed at 30 MPH.
From Etymotic, I obtained the larger foam earseals, which help some. So does a balaclava to reduce noise and solve one other problem: these are longer and stick out more so when you put your helmet odd, it tends to dislodge one or both earbuds.
Bottom line? Not sure I would buy them again, although I'm trying other things to improve performance. (Posted on 12/8/12)
