Etymotic Research mk5 Overview

The Etymotic mk5 High-Fidelity Isolator Earphones combine the company's Accu-Chamber technology in a compact low-profile high-gloss design. The design makes the earphones fit comfortably with hats and helmets, so they are especially convenient for commuting, travel, and sports activities.

The earphones use high-output 6mm neodymium moving-coil drivers to deliver a frequency response of 20 to 15,000 Hz into a 32 ohm load with a sensitivity of 95 dB and a maximum SPL output of 120 dB. The eartips provide 35 to 42 dB of noise isolation, and a custom earmold fit option is also available for even greater noise isolation. A collection of foam and gel eartips as well as a shirt clip and zippered carrying pouch are included. A cord winder and deluxe zippered carrying pouches are also available (sold separately).

I expected more. Threw out the packaging otherwise would have returned them.

Good Sound and Isolation

Good sound and isolation from outside noise. I use these earphones under my motorcycle helmet to use my intercom. Fits fairly well under a helmet and reduces wind noise so that I can hear my passenger. Also use them when working around other loud activities (yard work, power tools, etc). No more sweaty headphone ears.

Very effective at noise control

I wanted these to use in a motorcyle helmet with an intercom and with my phone. Because of how small they are, that they go directly into ear canal, and the fact that if you use the foam tips they fit very snug, it really isolates a lot of sound. These work better than a custom fit earpieces that I had made for my ears. They also do not get shoved into my ears further with my helmet.

Clear but thin

Mk5 have very clear sound, fit well but have very little base tones making the sound seem a little thin.

Fantastic!

I purchased the mk5 earphones to wear while riding my motorcycle. They fit in the helmet fine as long as the helmet has speaker cavities built into it. The mk5's bring rich sounding audio and fantastic noise isolation. The fit of the silicone tips in my ears is perfect and more effective than most of the foam earplugs I have used for reduction of high speed wind noise. The audio quality is not what I would call audiophile level, but it is crisp and clean and perfectly acceptable for my use on a bike. I wish they had slightly more low frequency punch, but otherwise, I'm enjoying the sound. I've worn them for a couple 3-4 hour rides; so far I haven't done a full day ride with them, but they haven't given me the first hint of pain or soreness. The bottom line is that these things rock!

Very Specialized Ear Buds

I purchased these earbuds to wear under my motorcycle helmet and they work great. The variety of ear pieces makes a good fit certain. These earbuds are very specialized. The frequency response of these buds is tailored to speech. If you play music through them, you may be disappointed by the lack of bass response. I was unable on my Sansa Fuze MP3 player to find a custom balance setting that sufficiently improved the sound when playing music. But the clarity of speech is excellent.

neither isolating nor powerful

these are not good headphones. the volume is poor and they do not isolate you from your environment.

Rubber tips don't fit my ear canals.

By David

The pyramid-shaped three-level ear tips that come with these buds don't fit my ears. Nor do the other expanding foam ear tips. Fortunately I've owned previous Etymotic earbuds, and I do have some tips that work. I wish they'd supply a wider variety of ear tips. Once I get the right fit, these buds are very good.
