      Comments about Etymotic Research mc5 Noise-Isolating In-Ear Stereo Headphones (Red):

      I purchased these in order to make my 1 Room studio work. I need isolating headphones so I could stand in front of an amp or drum and move the mic around and hear only the mic pickup. These do the job great! If I need some more isolation, I simply add a pair of firing range ear muffs and even better.

      The sound quality is quite good. It's fairly flat, but not incredibly detailed. I certainly wouldn't do any mixing or critical listening with these, but for my purposes their perfect.
