Etymotic Research MC5 Noise Isolating In-Ear Earphones
Environmental sounds can be a steady reminder of the world around you and internal noise pollution can further detract your attention from the purity of your music. Etymotic Research MC5 Noise Isolating In-Ear Earphones serves as a discrete solution for the audiophile who requires premium audio fidelity in situations where over-the-ear headphones are too bulky. Etymotic Research's MC5 headphones incorporate noise isolation technology to seal your ear canals from outside noises and employs noise cancellation mechanics to filter superfluous sounds out of the streams of your music.
Noise isolating headphones have to fit snuggly into your ear canals to serve their purpose, and the MC5 includes four varieties of ear-tip accessories from which you can evaluate until you've found the perfect fit. A snug fit is essential to bass recognition and so four types of ear tip covers help limits the likelihood of returning your MC5 headphones for another variety.
Etymotic Research MC5 headphones achieve an 85 percent accuracy score, meaning there will only be as little as a 15 percent difference between your music's original quality and the sound the MC5 headphones playback. MC5 headphones features two acoustic dampers in each ear bud, which protects the mid-range of your music's spectrum from anomalous spikes in velocity.
MC5 headphones also incorporate a three-band equalizer to further protect your music from noise picked during the recording or feedback caused by your playback device. The MC5's 85 percent accuracy rating benefits greatly from of their use of the standard high, mid and low band moderation used by its equalizer. The MC5's equalizer, Etymotic Research's patent pending “ACCU-Acoustic Control Chamber,” is feed audio through a resonance control gate, which helps to temper the sound from your playback device before it crosses the first of the two acoustic dampers.
The sounds amplified through MC5 headphones are powered by an 8mm, neodymium moving coil driver that can output a up to 120 decibels when sound pressure is taken into account. Their powerful output and noise elimination technologies enables the MC5 headphones to cancel out sounds of roughly 35 to 42 decibels.
While the Etymotic Research MC5 Noise Isolating In-Ear Earphones headphone cables aren't exactly generous in length, measuring four feet, they are reinforced with a Kevlar coating to ensure they'll stick with you for the long haul. Color options include black, red and blue.
Along with the additional ear tips, MC5 headphones include a filter removal tool so that you exchange each earbud's filter and prolong the life of your investment. A pair of replacement filters are included as well. A cable clip is included to keep the M5C's cabling close to you and away from entanglements. The kit is rounded off by a carrying case to help you keep up with all of the M5C's accessories.
