Etymotic ER6 : la opinión de moosers (content in English)
The Etymotic ER6's are a set of in ear headphones designed for general listening purposes. They are isolation headphones, so they are designed to block out any and all noise. I know Etymotic's work from their ear plugs, but I guess that these are in the same vein as well. I generally don't like wearing in ear headphones for too long, but the ER6s are actually pretty comfortable. I've only used them for listening to music on my iPod, as opposed to using them for use in the recording studio or for professional audio. They definitely have a clean and full sound to them, with a good amount of low end response for a set of in ear headphones, but I wouldn't do any audio work on them unless it was basic editing. They would however be suitable for checking mixes on if you wanted to get a new perspective on your mix through a consumer set of headphones. I don't think that the ER6's would be my first choice for in ear headphones, but I definitely couldn't fault someone for going with them as they are a very solid set of headphones. Everybody's ears are different, and when it comes to choosing a set of in ear headphones especially, it's important that they fit well and that you're comfortable more than anything. For this reasoning I'd recommend testing out the ER6's as well as many other in ear headphones to see what will be most comfortable and what will sound best for you. While the ER6's aren't the cheapest in ear headphones on the market, they're also better than most of them out there as well. These are definitely a set of headphones that are worth a second glance for those interested in picking up a nice set of in ear headphones.
