Etymotic Research mk5 overview

  • 1Description

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).

    Etymotic Research mk5 reviews

    mk5 High-Fidelity Isolator Earphones is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I've owned two other (more expensive) pairs of Etymotics and have liked them. This pair fits nicely but doesn't sound very good. The high frequencies are really rough, even after 20 hours of playing. Bass is light weight as expected but combined with the strange high frequencies these headphones are hard to listen to for any length of time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product, this is my third pair. This is my third pair, too, too rough with the first, lost the second. Didn't hesitate to purchase my third Etymotic Isolator earphones. Comfortable ear seal and sound, great for airplane, can't say enough.
