Pros

affordable price point - much cheaper than Etymotic's stand-alone IEMs

3 agree

great audio quality - approaches that of Etymotic's top professional ER-4 line

3 agree

additional 2 buttons on the in-line control - now allows for volume control

3 agree

noise cancellation improves overall sound quality, allows for users to use the headphones at lower volumes which is also safer for their hearing

3 agree

top-of-the-line noise isolation

3 agree

improved 3.5mm jack is more durable than the one found on the Hf2

3 agree

passive noise attenuation is higher quality than active noise canceling, doesn't require additional power from the device / separate batteries

3 agree

2-year warranty

3 agree

comfortable

Cons

not bass heavy - like the rest of Etymotic's line these are based on a balanced armature driver, very neutral sound signature with tight bass

2 agree

higher price than the Hf2s

2 agree

poor microphonics (cable noise) - similar to the rest of Etymotic's line of IEMs

1 agrees

3 buttons are all the same size - makes you seek out the third if you're controlling blindly

1 agrees

powerful external noise attenuation is potentially dangerous
