I just got these Etymotic Research ER6i earbuds (or earbutts should I say?) in the mail, I have to say these are the “worst” earbuds I have tried. I don’t know what’s up with the reviews on Amazon or even CNet, those people must have not tried other earbuds on the market that are cheaper.
The triple-flange buds FAIL big time because it doesn’t isolate noise plus quality on overall sound spectrum isn’t all that great or is lacking.
Plus the build is cheap, this is the “cheapest” build I’ve seen on earbuds, easy to break.
