From the Manufacturer
First Bluetooth Stereo In-Ear Earphones
|Control your music |
Listen to and control your iPod from up to 30 feet away. The ety8 earphones remotely control volume and track selection. The ety8s provide the highest fidelity Bluetooth listening experience, sampling the sound at 44.1 kHz sampling rate, 16-bit resolution.
|Innovative iPod adapter |
ety8 earphones work with all iPods, except shuffle, which use a 30-pin connector. For 5th gen iPods and all nanos, users can adjust controls on both the earphone and the clickwheel and view settings on the iPod display.
|Comfortable, secure fit |
The earphones are lightwight (less than 1/2 oz. each) and are supported completely in the ear canal. A large selection of eartips is included to accommodate different ear sizes and to provide a perfect seal to give you the greatest noise isolation. Filters, filter changing tool and leather pouch (not shown) are also included.
Etymotic Research, the developer of the worlds first in-the-ear high fidelity noise-isolating earphones, has designed the first in-the-ear wireless Bluetooth stereo earphones with highly accurate sound reproduction and unsurpassed noise exclusion. The ety8 earphones have a Made for iPod adapter that is compatible with most iPods. These earphones support A2DP and AVRCP profiles and Bluetooth 2.0, and they can be paired with Bluetooth stereo enabled computers and mobile phones that have these profiles.
The earphones use the new full-bandwidth Broadcom BCM-2037 chip set, which represents a major advance in Bluetooth technology and minimizes power consumption. A unique, patent-pending, antenna design enabled Etymotic to make the earphones small. The earphone battery charge lasts 7-10 hours. The iPod adapter does not need to be charged because it uses power from the iPod.
The ety8 earphones are the first Bluetooth earphones to provide 35 dB to 40 dB noise isolation. This level of noise exclusion drops the typical 80 dB airplane cabin noise level down to the 40-45 dB level of a typical living room. It is more than twice as effective as over-the-ear headphones with electronic noise canceling circuitry, and equals that of Etymotic's other earphones.
Thanks to high noise-isolation, users of the ety8 earphones do not need to turn up the volume too high: Recent studies show that when outside noise is excluded, people tend to naturally choose a safe listening level.
Freedom of Movement
The ety8 Bluetooth stereo earphones give users much more freedom of movement and flexibility in how they listen to music. Users can place their iPod, music phone or computer nearby and listen to music while traveling, exercising or moving about, without having to manage wires.

My ety8 Bluetooth Noise-Isolating Earphone arrived yesterday. After charging the unit for about 3 hours, I finally got to try these out. In a nutshell, if you are looking for bluetooth, noise isolating/noise cancelling earphones, these are amazing. The sound quality is extremely good; not outstanding but far, far from just being passable. I have been looking for Bluetooth earphones for a while but I wanted the noise cancelling feature. I decided to see if Noise Isolating would do the trick and after a bit of research, I decided that NI was just fine. I'm about to embark on a trip to Bejing for the summer Olympics and will be watching hours and hours of track and field. A few heats of the 10,000 meters (25 laps around the track) gets a bit boring even for true track fans like me. I wanted a light weight pair of earplugs and I didn't want to deal with wires.
The comfort is surprisingly good. I listened for about 2 hours without a break and had no ear exhaustion. Comparing these to my Bose QuietComfort 3, the QC 3s offer better comfort and offer richer, fuller sound with greater range. The Ety8 offer solid performance in the middle, and only ok highs and lows (although the lows are better than the highs) If I had to be critical, the only negative is that the highs are slightly on the tin-sounding side. For me personally, this is a very minor issue; the size, comfort, the noise isolating and the lack of wires makes this a great, great buy for me. What would it take for this to get five stars? If the Ety8 improved its full range, then these will be super amazing (and, I bet, much more expensive!). I highly recommend.
The mild "interference" noise behind everything, I didn't mind, nor the occasional pairing issues. I'm one of those people who gets tangled up in their cords all the time and the convenience of having wireless headphones was more than worth it. But these things are so incredibly delicate. My first pair were accidentally stepped on, which was why I used a bunch of Amazon credits to get a second...but the second broke just as thoroughly, from nothing more than the pressure of being in a bag with other stuff. $200 headphones with hard parts at right angles should either be made of sturdier stuff or come with more than a cloth bag for storage. The only sure way to keep them from breaking would be to hold them in my hand constantly or something. When I realized I was paying for the concept and not for something that's actually well made, I gave up. It's back to $15 earbuds for me.
These are much, much better. You get 3 times the range, better hold in the ear. the safety of a wire around your neck so if one falls out you don't lose it.
Also volume, forward,rev and pause on the ipod. All not available on the other product. Long battery life, expensive cost to replace the ear foams.
The only negative, the look totally stupid on you. I suffer through it for the amazing convenience but why they could not have made them to look more like ear buds instead of boxes is beyond me. BUY THEM!
