The Etymotic MC2 cord neatly extends about 4ft and terminates in an angled gold-plated 3.5mm mini-plug jack ideal for connectivity into most audio devices and smartphones. The MC2 remote and mic are supported by almost all modern smartphones. Four different types of 'universal fit' eartip sleeve types & sizes are included in the MC2 box; definitely try them all for the best possible in-ear fit and sound quality. As a very cool extra, optional audiologist-customized in-ear molds for are easily available via Etymotic after MC2 purchase; any customer purchasing an Etymotic product can register their product at Etymotic.com. After registering, you can print a voucher from the Etymotic site, then schedule an appointment with an audiologist in the Etymotic network (which can be located through the Etymotic website by entering your zip code). You'll then take the voucher to the audiologist appointment, the audiologist will take impressions of your ears and send the impressions -- along with the voucher -- to the Ety labs. Customer pays nothing to the audiologist; the lab will contact you for credit card payment (for $100 -- a great deal!); the lab then produces the molds and ships them to the customer with the lab compensating the audiologist. It's a really easy way to get into 'master-level' sound quality performance and great wearing comfort at a very reasonable expense.

Recommend Product: No
Pros: Sound was adequate for a telephone conversation
Cons: Poorly made
These have a faulty design. They do not fit as well and are made of a material that breaks easily. Spend the extra bucks and get a pair of the HF version.
