1) Cost. I can't afford $300+ dollar headphones no matter how well they will treat my ears.
2) Sound quality. I wanted to treat myself and buy headphones that would rank close to my wonderful white AKG K701 headphones.
3) Volume/DB's. I wanted a pair of ear buds that weren't super loud (I don't want to go deaf), but loud enough to block out most noise without having to worry about encumber some battery packs that most noise cancelling buds come with. My old Sony's were a nightmare.
4) Ear buds. Plain and simple, I just like ear buds! I can wear them for hours (if designed correctly or with correct sleeves) and I can work out without worrying about them popping out.
That being said, I searched the internet. I found several reviews on CNet and a ton of audio/video websites that devoted their time to finding the absolute best in everything. I kept reading about the Shure SE 530's and what an all around excellent pair of cans they were. Unfortunately, the reviews were a little old with their $400 retail tag. Today the Shure's are only $300! Not happening. I wanted excellent buds that weren't going to drain my bank account. I was willing to spend around $150 MAX.Read more ›
Unbelievable what Phonak did with one single armature driver.
Sounds better from all one and two driver IEM's and rivaling SE530 and UE triple.fi 10. All for only $ 139.00
After several hours of listening, I immediately ordered one more par for my wife.
Rating: (scale 0-10)
bass(with bass filter) 9
bass quality 9.5
sound stage 8.0
build quality 8.0
ease of insertion 6.0
I used Shure SCL4, SE310, SE530, UE super.fi 5, UE triple.fi 10, Klipsch X10, Etymotic E4, Sennheiser IE7,
and they are better from all except UE 10 and SE530, but in few segments rivaling and exceeding those two.
For the money there is nothing else comparable!
Anyway, after some research I bought this one. All in all I've been a happy customer since then.
Before e2c was totally gone, I A/B-ed these two, and here's my impression. BTW if you're an audiophile, don't bother to read further. I don't even know all these cryptic things like "sound stage" and such ;-)
1. e2c was louder
This is superficial as it's a matter of turning your volume level up or down, but anyway that's the first thing I found. With the same volume setting this one is quieter.
Phonak has twice as large an impedance as e2c (32 Ohm vs 16 Ohm), and the amplifier cannot pump as much electrical power into Phonak (power is inversely proportional to impedance), and the sensitivity (loudness per electic power) are more or less the same (107 vs 105 dB SPL/mW).
2. Phonak/Audeo colors less
To my ear, this one colors less. After adjusting the volume to provide the same overall loudness, e2c seemed to provide stronger high and low but not mid, which is not necessarily bad. But I'd say Phonak/Audeo sounds more natural, even if this is totally subjective.
3. External sound isolation not as good as e2c
If isolation from external noise is your main concern, this is not for you. I still use this one on the plane and it is not that bad, but e2c was better in this respect.
4. I prefer how you wear this over e2c
One thing I didn't like about e2c was that the right and left cables join at the back of my neck, and then come to my chest over my shoulder. With this one, the cables go over the ears and then comes down straight and join at my chest.Read more ›
The E3Cs had very clear highs, and in general good, never mushy sound. However, the E3C had somewhat disappointing bass. The SE210s were significantly less expensive (about $160 for the SE210s as compared to a bit over $200 for the E3Cs), and while the bass was richer, there was little doubt that the sound was definitely mushier in the SE210s than the E3Cs, and there was definitely some distortion on the lows with the SE210s.
The Audeo PFE 112 are my favorite of the bunch so far (I've only had them a day or so). Their clarity rivals the E3Cs, at least from memory; they're definitely noticeably cleaner than the SE210s, and a bit less expensive as well, with no noticeable distortion. Their bass is closer to the SE210s than the relatively weak E3C bass.
I tried both the grey (mid-range) filters, and the black (boost low and high) filters, and was happier with the grey mid-range ones, just as an aside.
Update on 8/14/11 -- I just tried the foam tips, and for me, they fit better and more comfortably than the silicone tips.
Update on 1/1/14 -- Still going strong, with daily use! Definitely better built than any other headphones I've had.
Update on 6/28/16 -- Amazingly, still working perfectly with daily use. I don't think this model is still being manufactured, but they and their ilk are still available online.
