hf2 - High Fidelity - BEST earphones I have found!

hf2 Cobalthf2 Rubyhf2 Black

I have searched "High and Low" to find the best earphones out there.  I think I found them!!!  The hf2 by Etymotic is by far the most comfortable earphone I have tried.  They stay comfortably in my ears, block out extra noise, equalize my ear pressure and sound AWESOME.

Well worth the $179, if sound and comfort are important.  Just don't tell your kids how great they are - they will try to take them from you!!

My only wish is that it had volume control - other than that - awesome!  I give it 8 out of 10 iPhones.
