Etymotic's hf5 Earphones: Tiny But Mighty

Etymotic's hf5 Earphones: Tiny But Mighty

It's been awhile since I've taken a pair of headphones or earphones for a test drive, so when my friends over at Etymotic Research sent me a pair of their latest hf5 fifth generation earphones, I instantly popped them in and turned-up my favorite playlist in iTunes.

As I've already discussed, Etymotic earphones are perfect for smaller earlobes since they come with an assortment of foam eartips for the perfect fit. They also offer noise isolation technology, so you will only hear your music and not surrounding sounds. What I instantly noticed about the lightweight hf5s is their clarity and ability to offer such accurate acoustics. But if you like a lot of bass, I'd say invest in a pair of Atrio series earphones, which offer more of a surround-sound experience. For the best audio output with the hf5s, make sure the eartips are properly sealed in your ear canal, or else the outside sounds will not be blocked properly.

You can pick up a pair of the hf5s from Amazon for $149.

I got the ER•6i earphones last year for my birthday, and I haven't used any other earphones since. They are actually best on the plane. Screaming kids, talks-too-much-guy, person with open-air headphones and loves country? No problem. I just pop the earbuds in, wear a sleeping mask and it's like I'm flying alone. :D
