    Shure E2c Sound Isolating Earphones

    Bottom Line: At $99 dollars, Shures E2cs are a bit expensive, but make up for it in sound isolation technology and a lightweight design.

    Although based off of Shure’s previous earphone designs for professional musicians, the E2c earphones have been redesigned for broader consumer use. Each ear bud has a somewhat tear-drop shape (think Hershey’s kisses), with a small tube on its end designed to fit a small variety of sleeves.

    There are two types of sleeves that come with your E2c earphones; foam and rubber. There are three pairs of each type, and each pair is a different size.

    I found that the rubber sleeves were not very effective; the large ones could not fit deep enough into my ear and the small ones kept popping out after a few minutes.

    The foam sleeves worked great; they expanded into my ear and were a snug fit. But after a while a pair would get pretty disgusting from use, and I would have to throw it away. I have already tossed one pair, so now I am down to two. After I run out, extra foam sleeves are two bucks a pair.

    The E2cs are designed to be as inconspicuous as possible without sacrificing comfort. The cables of the E2c earphones wrap discreetly behind your ear, extending down your neck and out of plain sight. The ear bud itself is designed to fit snugly inside your ear, which not only makes it less visible, but also stays secure during workouts. I now use the E2cs (with foam sleeves) exclusively when I run, simply because they stay in my ear despite all the sweat and activity.
