View Full Version : Shure E2c vs Etymotic E6
Hello, I'm looking for a channel headphone in Europe. By know, I have narrowed the search to this to contenders that I can buy from http://www.macway.com/. E2c at 90€ and E6 at 110€. Anybody have the chance to compare this two? I'm inclined to the E6, but it will help any first hand impression.
I'm pretty much in the same situation. Don't know wich one to get that would go the best with the coming X5...
I've read good stuff about the Sharp MD33 as well. Only 35 USD!
I want in ear buds and I am after comfort first and good sound second. Is it worth spending more for the E6?
Can someone help us?
ER6 is much better than E2C, similar to E3C
Is it true that you kind of need an amplifier with the E6? What about the E2c?
If you are still around, do you know if there is difference between the ER6 and ER6i (except for the colour)? TRhe Er6 are slightly cheaper..
Found the answer my self.... :D
"6i isolator earphones are designed specifically for use with the Apple iPod and other small portable players, offering 8 dB higher overall sensitivity and slightly more bass than the ER-6 isolator earphones."
dont know if er6 needs an amp..sure u can hear something when connected directly to the dap but then they only show off their potential when amped. shure e2c is nice, strong sound..very direct (not too much wideness in sound..very forward). downside is that its really a hassle to put them in/off the ears (especially when people want to talk to you) and they offer a bit too much isolation for all day usage. for some people they might give a very "wired" feeling due to the very thick and heavy cables). i found them very disturbing when sweating (while biking for example). sharp has a comparable sound..direct and also goes stupidly loud (both dont need an amp to sound strong). what i liked about the sharps is that they have the correct amount of isolation and are easy to use. imo the better phone since soundquality isnt by far the most important thing when on the move. ergonomics were far better..
get the sharps from audiocubes and if u wanna use them with a remote then do the solder trick to get rid of the adaptor extension cable. worked without flaws on my pair.
btw just to mention it..the question on which being the best phone alsways depends on your musical taste.
Great, thanks for your feedback JoeY2k!
I'll probably go for the Sharp. Quiet happy with the price as well :)
