The Etymotic HF2 is an award-winning example of smartphone hi-tech from the inventors of the in-ear category. Offering true sound & voice reproduction and bringing much of the performance of the high-end Etymotic ER-4 to a lower price, this in-ear headset delivers Ety's signature detail clarity at all frequencies. The HF2's deep fit into the ear ensures excellent isolation and, coupled with the patented BLUMax Etymotic mic, the HF2 has pure intelligibility at both ends of the conversation. Universal 1-button remote on cord allows easy switching between your music and phone calls.
What's In The Box:
Leave it to the industry originators of in-ear headphone technology to invent one of the best-sounding, best isolating cellular/smartphone/MP3 player earphone & mic systems on the market. Audiology R&D leader Etymotic Research's HF2 in ear stereo headphones offer excellent overall sound quality due to their balanced armature earpiece design based on their venerable Etymotic ER-4 audiophile earphones. In conjunction with a completely proprietary and very voice-sensitive 'built-in' microphone, the Etymotic HF2 features a single 3-way button that can quickly answer phone calls and control your music at a flick of the music/call switch. Now you can communicate clearly even in extremely noisy environs without fear of missing that critical call.
The Etymotic HF2 provides four different sets of eartip sleeves including both large and small silicon 3-flange tips along with a pair of squishy-foam tips which help deliver thorough ambient noise-blocking ability and a comfortable, personalized fit. The gold-plated straight 3.5mm 4-conductor plug is fully Apple iPhone and BlackBerry compatible and will fit just about any mobile phone or music player accepting the 1/8' [3.5mm] jack connection. A spare set of earphone filters, a handy filter changing tool, and a useful travel pouch also come included in the HF2 packaging. Also includes a manufacturer's 2-year product warranty provided at no extra charge only when proof-purchased from true Etymotic-authorized dealers -- like HeadRoom! Black color only.
CUSTOM FIT OPTIONS: As a very cool extra, optional custom audiologist in-ear molds for the HF2 are available via Etymotic. Any customer purchasing an Etymotic product can register their product at Etymotic.com; after registering, you'll 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). Then take the voucher to the audiologist appointment, the audiologist takes impressions of your inner ears and sends 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 ($100usd); the lab then produces the molds and ships them to the customer with the lab compensating the audiologist. BAM! It's a really easy way to get into 'master-level' sound quality performance and great wearing comfort at a very reasonable expense.
