Riding the Flow

musings from the shire

Well, after all I’ve decided to go with Etymotic Research hf2. They have so much clearer sound, you really hear each separate instrument. I’ve already used to how deep they go in the ear – this is a plus actually, since they are quite comfortable while sitting very securely without falling out.

Ultimate Ears SuperFi 5vi were good, but just too artificially bassy while “mushy” overall. Checks for frequency response confirmed this. They were somewhat quicker to insert/remove, but isolation was a lot worse, they were more prone to falling out and also response/action button was located very low on the cord for some reason.
