Etymotic ditches the lame iPhone mic, intros the hf5 earphones for real audiophiles

It’s clear that bone conduction headphones aren’t quite there yet in terms of sound quality, so we’ll just have to cope with in-ear or over the ear headphones and today Etymotic announced a new set of hi-fi in-ears.

The hf5 earphones have the same award winning technology as the hf2, but ditch the lame microphone. Tuned for a full dynamic range of sound coupled with the noise-isolating tips the hf5’s let you hear everything without having to crank up the volume, which we all know isn’t good for us. The hi-fi, noise-isolating earphones are available exclusively through Amazon and retail for $149.
