I wonder if Shure gives me commission for every sale made after this review.
Anyway, as per request.
Apple retailers sell the E2c at a jaw-dropping $220, but after doing some research on the net, I realised that the shops in Sim Lim sell between $145-$170.
Performance Audio (2nd floor) – $145
Wailian Electronics (#01-28) – $150
So I paid and happily brought it home.
I haven’t tested the Grado SR60 headphones, but I know they’re a bang for buck. I don’t think the E2c is comparable to the SR60 because the SR60 is really for high-definition audio.
If we’re just going to hear normal compressed MP3s, the E2c (or even lower grade earphones) should be able to do the job. It comes with 3 different sizes of ear-plugs. At first, it was hard to distinguish which was S, M and L because they all look the same. Gotta try them on and see which one fits best.
The audio quality not bad lah, and if you’re using it on an MRT train beside 2 noisy aunties, the E2c’s sound isolation is good enough to drown away their ramblings.
That was a pretty short and sweet review.
I just came back from work, and this was my toy for today.
The purr of the engine is awesome! The pickup is fantastic. In my previous post, I mentioned that I don’t intend to change my bike. But no! After today, I’ve decided that once I get my Class 2A, I’ve gotta change to a Super 4!
(Exam timetable is out. Sigh.)
