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

        I purchased these because of a review I read in Wired. Now, it's possible I received a bad set, but they were horrible. No low end whatsoever, tinny, just horrible. I returned them immediately and bought the Shure SE215s. Those are fantastic. Great response across the entire range.
