Etymotic MC5 High-Definition Earspeakers
- Product Review (submitted on October 14, 2012):
- Unfortunately, I have been using a custom pair of earphones from BigEar that were made at one of the MOA rallies. They were expensive and have stopped working two times. The first time I did send them back and the charge to repair them was almost $200. They have stopped working again. I refuse to send them back; therefore, I thought that I would give Etymotic a try. They are a fraction of the cost and are designed so much better. One huge problem with BigEar, is that wax tends to clog the earphone. It only takes a very small amount to prevent them from working. Etymotic has a filter to keep the wax away. The noise reduction is also superior and they are not custom made. There are so many options for the stock ear inserts, everyone will be able to find a suitable insert to fit their ears. The only drawback that I have found with these phones, is that the replacement filters are expensive. Conclusion, I wish that I knew about Etymotic much sooner.
