From the Manufacturer
A no compromise, high-performance noise-isolating headset and earphones that delivers best-in-class benefits and superior value, perfectly matched to the latest product innovations from most smartphones that support a 3.5mm, 4-conductor stereo phone plug. The hf2 features a close-proximity, high sensitivity microphone that works with many popular smartphones and tablets from Blackberry, Samsung, HTC, Motorola Mobility, HP, and of course, Apple.
Etymotic's hf2 looks and feels great, too. With a soft-touch finish in 3 color options (Black, Ruby, and Cobalt), the hf2 ships to you with an assortment of noise-isolating ACCU-Fit ear tips to ensure proper seal and comfort. You also have the option of ordering custom molded eartips with Etymotic's CUSTOM-FIT program.
Best Sound Accuracy
Etymotic hf2 earphones deliver 85%+ response accuracy from 20 Hz - 15 kHz. hf2 achieves the highest output sensitivity in its class with 105 dB SPL sensitivity at 1 kHz at 0.1 mV, thanks to Etymotic's Accu-Driver high performance, precision matched, balanced armature drivers.
Best Noise Isolation
Etymotic's specially-designed earphone tips create 35 dB - 42 dB of noise isolation, which is the highest documented noise isolation of any earphones or headphones on the market today. This earphone headset comes with several types of eartips--3-flange, foam, and glider--to help you achieve a comfortable fit while retaining maximum noise isolation.
Compatible with Blackberry and Android as well as iPhone, iPad, and More
The Etymotic hf2 headset works with smartphones and tablets including, but not limited to, those running Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone, HP WebOS, Symbian and Apple iOS. With feature-compatible devices, you can play or pause music, change tracks, and change volume in addition to answering and ending phone calls.
Functionality for send/end, play/pause, forward/back track varies with device manufacturers' software. Please verify that your phone or tablet supports a 3.5 mm 4-conductor stereo phone plug.
Integrated Cable Slider
An inline cable slider makes cable management easy. The hf2 headset can be worn with the cables in front or in back of the head. The cable slider can be adjusted by moving it up or down for a snug fit.
Works with "AWARENESS! for Etymotic" iPhone App
AWARENESS! for Etymotic is an innovative earphone app for anyone who uses an Etymotic headset and needs to hear sounds around them. AWARENESS! for Etymotic listens to your surroundings while you listen to music, and allows any sound louder than normal background noise can be heard in your earphones. From hearing that truck while it's still down the road to hearing when someone asks if you'd like a cup of coffee in the office, or when the phone or doorbell rings at home, you can maintain spatial audio awareness for better safety in any environment.
Use with music, videos, games, and audiobooks while traveling, in the office, at home and at the gym. The app works with all Etymotic headsets (except Bluetooth models), and works best with noise-isolating headsets such as the Etymotic hf2, hf3 and mc3.
Upgrade to a CUSTOM-FIT
Custom molds can be made for all Etymotic earphones and headsets. CUSTOM-FIT molds enhance your listening experience. They provide a comfortable, secure fit and do not alter the exceptional sound quality of the earphones. Register your Etymotic headset at etymotic.com/customfit and print out a voucher.
