Etymotic Research mc5 Headphones Review$80.00
Tour & Design
The Etymotic Research mc5 headphones are a set of in-ears. They#39;re pretty vanilla, from a design standpoint.
The two channels meet at this number, which we#39;ve accentuated with the included shirt clip. Truly, no shirt is safe from the ravages of your headphones without this clip.
The cord guards at the buds and plug are pretty good, and should prevent the cord from doubling back on itself too much.
nbsp; Below, we put the mc5s on a robot, specifically HATS, our audio testing robot.
In The Box
The Etymotic Research mc5 headphones come with four sets of sleeves (two triple-flange, one foam, and one soft plastic), a cleaning tool, two wax nozzle guards, and a carrying case.
The Etymotic Research mc5 headphones seem pretty durable for a set of in-ears.
There#39;s not a whole lot you can do with a set of in-ears to make them flashy. Sure, you can make them look like earrings or bedazzle them to your heart#39;s content, but there#39;s not a whole lot you can do with such a small surface area without coming off as gaudy. It#39;s hard to rave about a simple design or a splash of color, which the mc5s have.
