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

    Sound Isolation

    Of course, the most prominent attribute of the E2cs lies with its “sound isolation” ability. Mind you, the technology that Shure employs is not the same as noise cancellation (a technology that records the offending wavelengths of unwanted noise and broadcasts identical wavelengths in an opposite phase to cancel them out.). Instead, Shure has used a much simpler but equally (if not more) effective way of blocking out unwanted noise, by designing ear buds that fit deeper and seal better in your ear.

    This may seem like too easy a solution to a widespread problem, but in reality, it is very effective. While it may initially take a little adjusting with the ear buds for you to find the best position in your ear, you will find that the E2cs completely isolate you from outside noise. For example, I have the buds in my ear right now as I type, and though I am not even listening to music, I can barely hear the sounds my fingers striking the keyboard. With all its effectiveness, I am surprised that this method for blocking noise is not being exploited by many other earphone manufacturers.
