Used for 4 months.

Not tried comparable model.

I like most: insulation, sound quality, discretion.
I like least: the coloration.

Value for money: medium (excellent quality and expensive product)
In absolute terms it is expensive for a headphone, but the benefits are there. no regrets!

I remake that choice because it switches to another dimension with this kind of product.

Used for live music, sound and listening.

I mainly wanted to have insulation in live to hear my guitar and my voice without becoming deaf.
And it is very effective, not only because I get along very well, but also everyone very comfortable volumes!

Why insulation is very powerful, more than my plugs pianissimo to-20dB attenuation.

The molds are perfectly adjusted and held in place in all situations. The insulation remains constant and independent of the movements of the jaw.

Extended wear no problem, we forget very quickly!

Obviously, this kind of device is more fragile than a headphone, be careful when handling and better store it in its case when not in use.

Frabrication quality is top! no complaints
I use it for 4 months, no hardware or sound dégratation.

The quality is incomparable!

The sound is clear, well defined, rich, spatialization is incredible.
Combined with insulation from the outside, it was his fabulous in all circumstances.

While the sound is not as accurate as monitor speakers (compared to Yamaha HSM50 example) but given the size of the machine is bluffing.

Only downside, there is a bump in the low mids that I find a bit intrusive. logical given the response curve on the site Earsonics:
https://www.earsonics.com/ecouteurs-audiophiles/em2-ifi/

The sound is really colorful, warmer, softer but encroaches on other frequencies. For music listening, it is not annoying, you can play on the equalization or nothing to correct certain types of music (metal genre!)
But to live, the voice comes a little too serious.

For neutrality, it is better to turn to EM2-PRO 190 € more expensive.

Interestingly quite exceptional: Earsonics All models are "upgradable" by paying the difference in price of new products.
Example:
price EM2-Ifi 490 EUR
price EM2-PRO 620 EUR

Upgrade to EM2 EM2-IFI-PRO: 130 EUR
