Etymotic-mk5.jpgEtymotic's new mk5 Isolater Earphones are designed to combine high-quality sound and excellent noise isolation in a low-profile form that's meant for on-the-go use. The earphones feature 6mm neodymium moving coil drivers and have a 32-ohm impedance, a 95-dB sensitivity, and a rated frequency response of 20 Hz to 15 kHz. Etymotic says these earphones offer 35 to 42 dB of noise isolation. The mk5 Isolater Earphones are available now for $64.95.

From Etymotic
Etymotic's mk5 Isolator Earphones are the newest addition to the company's high-fidelity Isolator earphone series, an extension of its original 6i earphones. Featuring Etymotic's renowned sound quality, the Isolator Earphones are a great choice for today's active lifestyles. They tune out ambient noise, so every detail in the music can be heard. These low-profile, in-ear earphones fit comfortably under hats and helmets and are ideal for commuting, travel and sporting activities.

It's a noisy world, and background noise isolation is needed now more than ever. With mk5 Isolator earphones, there's no need to turn up the volume to overcome outside sounds. Now every detail in the music can be heard clearly.

• The Isolator matches the ear's response for natural sound reproduction
• Low-level passages and the soft dynamics of music are heard clearly
• Ideal for personal listening and in-ear monitoring
• Powerful drivers in compact capsules

All Etymotic earphones seal the ear canal and provide noise isolation, but the mk5 does it in a low-profile case at a great low price.

Best Sound Accuracy
True high fidelity requires sound to be reproduced as close as possible to live performance. Etymotic's earphones and headsets have the highest response accuracy of all in-ear earphones and headsets. Etymotic is the only company that publishes accuracy scores.

Best Noise Isolation
Etymotic's earphones have the highest noise isolation of all earphones, as measured by an independent laboratory accredited by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Reduction of outside noise lowers the risk of listening at unsafe levels.

Why Etymotic?
Etymotic designs products to measure, improve and protect hearing and enhance the listening experience of music lovers everywhere. Founder Dr. Mead Killion, an audiologist, engineer, inventor and jazz musician, leads Etymotic's engineering team. Together, audio engineers, musicians and audiologists at Etymotic have generated over 100 patents issued and pending. Etymotic has the distinction of being the first company to develop and patent noise-isolating, high fidelity in-ear earphones.
