This is my first pair of IEMs, so I can't personally make comparisons to others, but from talking to people and reading reviews and some posts on headfi, there seems to be no question that these can easily hold their own with IEMs costing twice as much or more (at least, based on Amazon's price).
I first tried them with the flanged tips, and I have to say at that point I thought they were just OK. I switched to the foamies, and it was a whole different story. The sound is definitely very good.
Personally I find them very comfortable. I'm used to wearing earplugs, though, so maybe there was less of an adjustment for me. It's surprising that AL only has one size of foamies, but others at headfi have confirmed that replacements for the Etys (but not the regular ER6s) and Shure (not the E2) will fit these, so that should give you lots of options for fit. As far as the AL replacement parts and the website, whatever problems others might have had with those when the model first came out, they're online now.
The isolation with the foamies is extremely, extremely good (I actually bought them specifically for use on an airplane). I would not wear them walking outside or anywhere that total isolation could be dangerous. The flanged tips don't provide as much isolation, but that may be because I can't get an ideal seal with them.
The cord is quite long. Nice if you have it plugged into your desktop, but a bit of a pain walking around with an MP3 player. There definitely are microphonics issues with the cord, but that's an issue with IEMs in general, and I'm told the 616s are better than others with this.
It is true that the case is ridiculous. I guess having a case at all is a bonus, but the thing is bigger than my 30 gig mp3 player! I guess it's OK if you're just tossing it in a backpack or something.
Overall, I can't understand why Amazon is virtually giving away this fantastic set of earphones, but I highly recommend grabbing a pair before they wise up and start charging what they're worth.
They deliver clear, crisp mids and highs, and the bass can easily be maximized with a little EQing. Of course, as has been repeated here over and over, you need to get the proper seal for max SQ.
Again, if you hate something stuck in your ears, then stay away (get a pair of Yuin PK2 or PK3 ear buds instead). But if you don't mind the isolation and ear closure, these babies are a tremendous value, even at double the price I paid.
I had to use the foam inserts because the plastic ones were a little too large for my ears. With the foam, it completely sealed my ear canal and blocked out most noise. My commute home on the J train (light-rail) was quite silent. I was listening to classical music for the first time on the train. With earbuds, I had to put the volume level around 50%. With the Sony MDR-EX71 model, I could to keep it around 40%. The noise attenuation wasn't that good with the Sony model, but definitely better than earbuds (but the sound quality was quite terrible though.)
Superb sound. The partnership with Etymotic Research is evident. Everything sounded great: rock, grunge, classical. The Sonys sounded really muddy while these had a really bright sound with good bass (when the seal was good). Very balanced sound.
I string my earphones through an REI One jacket, so this was more or less perfect length. The cord is symmetric so it's not weirdly strung behind your neck like the Sonys, and the connection to the ear pieces is solid, not fragile-looking like the ER6. The earphones connect to the replaceable eartips very tightly. The included case is ridiculous though; it's way too bulky for portability.
Sadly, this is primary reason I'm returning these. Both the flanged rubber tips and the included foam tips were too big. The foam models got the seal, but they were too big, so I felt an uncomfortable amount of pressure in my ear canals. Those were my only two options with the included package. The other problem is that I cannot find replacements that are smaller, anywhere on the web, including the Altec Lansing site.
Another reason I am returning these is the documentation. The manual says that I can get replacement ear tips and accessories at alteclansing.com/inmotionearphones, and I get a 404 error when I visit the link. That is pretty pathetic.
Update: (1/19/2006)I emailed Altec Lansing regarding this issue on 1/10/2006, and I have yet to get a response from them.
If you have large ears, these may suit you. But if you know that you have smaller ears, then stay away from these, and go for something else.
