The Real Fun Reference IEM

ER2s are truly among the best IEM in sub-10K mark. They offer good accessories, great built quality and a tremendously fun but DF neutral (with a 2-3dB boost in sub-bass) sound sound signature. It seems Etymotic have rectified the concerns of the previously released BA IEMs. This doesn't mean there are no trade-offs, but it is inconsequential when compared to the goods. The reputation of Etymotic truly precedes the package delivered and it doesn't let down. The transient response is agile and bass attack is so dynamic - probably nothing comes close. The Starfield may offer a better technical performance, but the timbre and tonal characteristics of ER2s are far superior. I might even compare it to my some hybrids like Legacy 5 or some offerings from BQEYZ, but the cohesiveness of a DD can't be undermined. Also, I am not a proponent of the Chi-Fi tuning expect Moondrop. Etymotic's tuning is so natural and clean, I might not even go back to my previous go-to IEM A&K Billie Jean. They can scale well to a powerful source and totally do justice as an on-stage monitoring IEM, especially for drummers and bassists.
One thing to be noted is the soundstage and imaging. Due to the deep insertion, the instruments / vocals don't seem to come from around as you might expect in some recordings. But the instrument separation is top-notch and there is lot of lateral depth to the audio. It is a godsent IEM for binaural recordings. I truly have a soft spot for this IEM and it's just *kisses* good.

Hey Pritish, we're so happy to hear that this product is meeting your expectations. Thanks for this wonderful detailed review. We hope to see you again soon! :)

Sleeper IEMs : ER2XR

Not much interst is shown in these but let me tell you these are the real deal. If one can get the fit right nothing much at more than even double or triple their price can match them in sound quality.

These are neutral with a slight tilt in sub bass that does not intrude into those lovely mids. Some bright female voice recordings could sound a bit shouty but that is the only negative that I really found in these. The treble is again lovely, extended without a hint of sibilance.

Being the cheapest ETYs the retail package is underwhelming and there should be more tips to try especially double flanged ones especially considering that the fit makes it or breaks it for most folks trying ETYs.

Another thing is that the cable looks extremely fragile and Headphone Zone must stock replacement ETY cables as the mmcx connectors are not the standard ones but proprietary ETY design ones.

In short just do yourself a favour and try these if you are loking for a DD iem for upto three times it's price.

They rock, if you get the seal right.

I purchased the XR version from HPZ and was thrilled when I tried them on. The IEMs are super light and comfy. I tried the cylindrical foam tips included in the box, but for some reason I couldn't get the right seal, hence the bass was underwhelming and they sounded kinda squeaky.

The next day, I switched to the triple flange tips included in the box, and my mind was blown. Having got the right seal, I could feel the noise isolation even before I started playing a track. Their sound signature is excellent, every detail is crystal clear and with the noise isolation, the bass response is great. So I'd recommend to spend some time with the ear tips till you get a good seal.

The only concern I have is that the cable looks very delicate, and the drivers have this notch thingy, due to which they don't fit into other MMCX cables. In short, a great pair of IEMs at this price point, that can give more expensive multi-driver IEMs a run for their money.

PS: Team Headphone Zone thanks for getting these beauties, I love them. Also, please stock up on some replacement cables, will be needing them a year or so down the line. 🙂

Beautiful sounding IEM - ER2XR

First time user of Etymotics - All I have to say is, they are amazing for the price. For 10k I'm getting something that is similar to headphones that sound 2x the price. I honestly thought I'd hate the fit but the triple flange eartips are perfect for me with great isolation. The foam tips that come with this product are utter crap. Don't depend on them. Overall a great Value For Money piece here.

If you want just bass, skip this one. This is more like an all rounder without being low in a certain category. Even the treble as many say it lacks a little, is honestly not that bad. The packaging is good and old stylish. I didn't have any issues with shipping.

I wish we had some ear tips from westone, Dekoni and Comply in India. This is something I'd try various eartips on. Anyway, you won't be disappointed with this. I'm aware the triple flange is not something that'd be comfortable for everyone, so keep that in mind.

Hey Jerwin, thanks for sharing this amazing feedback! We are super happy to hear that you are loving your new purchase!

No coloration

Yes in simple words it is for the audiophile who look for serious original studio performance iem. There is No distortion from the original sounding. It shows off what is recorded. For example you can identify each instrument and voices of the singers as natural as. No frequencies are exaggerated. But the cable is very thin. Good fiting is must to show Etys original sq. I found shure tip is good for me. It is no wonder why there are thousands of fans for etymotic

Hey, thanks for sharing your review with us, we really appreciate it.

Amazing Sound Isolation

This review is for the XR model. Their main USP is the amazing fit and noise blocking. I am using the triple flange tips and once they are sealed properly you are isolated from the world. Sound wise: they are not fatiguing. I can listen to these for hours at end. Super comfortable. They do require the volume to be cranked up a bit (compared to my other IEMs).

If you're chasing bass : Get the Ibasso IT00
If you're chasing treble : Get the Shuoer Tapes or Starfields

These fall right in the middle. But what they offer which the others don't is sound isolation, no listening fatigue and comfort.

So glad to know that you love them. We really appreciate your review, we hope it will help other potential customers to make an informed decision.

Excellent IEMs for the price

I'm usually someone who sticks to Headphones but when you're travelling, it can be a pain to lug around headphones no matter how portable they are. To plug said gap, I experimented with some wireless earphones and of course, wireless earphones can never live up to the quality of wired earphones but their efficiency is also offset by their lack of durability. My experiment, having now failed, led me to finding good wired earphones and I landed on Etymotic's ER2-XR.

Let me tell you, it was a great decision. I've read people complain about it going too deep into their ear canals and frankly, I haven't found that to be a problem. When it comes to that particular problem though, I'm sure mileage will vary from person to person. Once you do get it in though, the isolation is sublime. The soundstage isn't great and that'll probably stand out the most when it comes to the negatives. It's not neutral and leans towards a more v-shaped sound signature but it's not overwhelming bass. It just makes the earphones more enjoyable to listen to. I've played just about every genre I can imagine over my week of ownership and at no point do these earphones get embarrassed. That being said, they're clearly more comfortable with pop, hip hop, R&B and the like.

The microphonics can get a little irritating especially when you're working out.

All in all, they're a great pair of earphones for the price and an easy recommendation from my end especially if you're someone who enjoys a bit of bass.

Bang for the Buck!

They amazed me right of out of the box. They are so light and small that you almost forget you are even wearing them. Although, I’m not an expert in reviews the highs are crisp and subtle, I felt mids are the clearest in an IEM at this price segment. Although it has a flat signature the XRs have extended bass that’s just enough, atleast for me. They sound better the older they are. Trust me, if you get the right fit you are end up being an Etyhead.
PS: The stock triple flange tips worked me.

Hey John, Thank you for the wonderful review and for taking the time to share your feedback with the new earphones. It will surely help others who are considering to purchase this product! :)

Excellent neutral

Being a senior member I was hesitant to buy etymotic 2xr. But when I heard full lock down immediately ordered. But in 72 hours it reached thanks hpz. Good packing lot off accessories with pouch. The cable is thin. First I tried with stock tips through my smart phone and mojo. Wow it is dead neutral. I used my shure eartips it doesn’t go too much inside ear canal and gives me good seal. Good seal only decides the sq. First of all I look for the mid and it’s around frequencies like voices, instruments and mid bass it is Quite awesome. Hf is detailed and as original. Bass is palpable not over whelming or bleeding in to its neighbour frequencies. Totally it proves it’ is a monitoring iem. This review is just after receiving. Already used with paw s1 which is good but find lil hard to drive may be high ohms or low sensitivity. I used with mojo was excellent. One more thing I purchased this iem despite of other hi end iems because there is a lot of fan club for Etymotic. No wonder there are so truthful reasons.

Hey, we are so happy to hear you're having a good experience with your latest purchase. Thanks for sharing this amazing review with us!
