Re: Bit the bullet

$200 for ear buds

Well, as a pro-audio person, I am a big fan of Shure mics. If these buds are as good and tough as the mics, I guess they're worth it.

It's better to live and learn than to just learn. - My very own oxymoron.

Re: Bit the bullet

That's not how much I paid I'm into pro-audio as well, but I can't say I'm a fan of their mics. These came highly recommended by several people I trust so I figured I'd try them.

Cool Z!

I have a nano and a pair of ultimate ears. Nothing like IEMs to attenuate the whine of some engines and wind noise!

Re: Bit the bullet

...and crying babies/mouthbreathers

I guess my favorite feature of these E3's so far is that I can get a custom earplug molded and have these inserted. I'm probably gonna do that after a couple of months.

Re: Bit the bullet

I bought the Ultimate Ear UE5 pro. I was able to audition a few (Shure, Etymotic and UE before choosing) I gave my daughter a set of Shure EC2's with a 12db attenuator for her shuffle and she loves them but she's 4 and isn't an audiophile yet.

I just got some of those. They were recommended by some guys that ride with them, but I haven't tried them in the helmet yet.
