Introduction

The Etymotic Research hf3 headphones are a mid-range set of in-ears with a remote & mic. These headphones feature Etymotic's signature frequency response, which tends to underemphasize the high end. Etymotic claims most studio recordings bump this frequency range too much and they're simply compensating. Be that as it may, their particular approach to frequency response unfortunately doesn't score well on our tests. Even so, at $179 (many retailers are selling them for about $50 less), the hf3s offer great functionality and decent audio quality, so they're definitely worth checking out.
