What customers say about "Key Specs"
Westone W60 Six-Driver True-Fit Earphones with MMCX Audio Cable and 3 Button MFi Cable with Microphone
  • The six drivers have exceptional range. I need to use headphones most of the day and these are perfect for when i need to switch to in ear.
  • This is an absolutely tiny earphone packing six drivers each, keeping the weight low and foregoing any compromises made for aesthetics.
  • The longer silicon tips were great and bright. Comfortable and good isolation, plus quicker and easier to insert.
  • Wearing these makes it look like you're wearing earrings, as the electronics dangle just below your ear.
  • The contact between driver and cable is so poor that you cannot even hear music clearly while walking.
Shure SE846-CL Sound Isolating Earphones with Quad High Definition MicroDrivers and True Subwoofer
  • I have never seen isolation this good, just make sure you get a tight fit.
  • They're comfortable and do an excellent job of isolating you from the environment.
  • Isolation is not so much that you can't hear someone trying to talk to one, but once the music turns on you're in another world!
  • Sound isolation with Shure's foam tips is almost exactly like that of the Etymotic ER4S - the best I've ever heard in terms of NRR.
  • The sound is so clear - truly amazing. The bass is very good - much better than the Shure 400 series.

What customers say about "Features"
Westone W60 Six-Driver True-Fit Earphones with MMCX Audio Cable and 3 Button MFi Cable with Microphone
  • Custom eartip design will reassure like-a-glove fitment with the most natural seal which yields the best sound performance.
  • The microphone perfectly conveys my speech without any interference.
  • I like that you can connect to them via bluetooth and I can easily monitor their battery directly on the headphones.
  • I have no complaints with the earphones whatsoever. The bluetooth dongle however could be designed so that the battery and controls are further down on the unit.
  • The only thing they were not able to put in were multiple microphones for background noise reduction when on the phone.
Shure SE846-CL Sound Isolating Earphones with Quad High Definition MicroDrivers and True Subwoofer
  • These come with many different accessories, from multiple sets and types of eartips, to various cabling adapters and even a large hard case and cleaning cloth.
  • Professional packing job, heavy duty cases. I did try the different filters and settled on the black(smooth) one.
  • The travel case is great and the pelican case for rugged storage is perfect.
  • The earphone itself is in a Crystal-clear casing which shows off its internal components in all its glory.
  • I use the yellow foam sleeves and have had no issues with fit, sound, or comfort.
