    Minty Etymotic HF2 Headphones

    I am reviewing a this set of Black Etymotic HF2's. Once I am finished with the review I wont be keeping them. Im a person who takes hobbys to the extreme and I like to try out tons of new things and I have a set of CIEM's on their way.

    Description:

    Headphones are the black model. Minty condition with all accessories.

    Etymotic Research, Inc. - hf2? headset + earphones

    All accessories are in like new condition. I have original packaging and will most likely ship via USPS in a small flat rate box in the Con US.

    Looking for:

    Id value these somewhere in the neighbor hood of $105 shipped. Please do not make an offer via this thread. PM me.

    I owned a pair of Etys back in the mid-2000s. Extremely good for a single-driver IEM with stellar flat performance. GLWS. OP, give the Shure SE530s a try if you can still find a pair.

    Even though it's a CA forum, hope you mention the Gorilla Ears on here. I haven't found something worth replacing my Shures since I bought them in 06 unless I went with a custom molded route (Westone/UE).

    Plan on it. There isnt alot of info on them. As a set of $1000 headphones not counting the audiologist appointment to get impressions made they should be phenomenal.
