    Comments about e5 Wood Earbuds:

    I got these as a Christmas present. The sound seems ok, but there is a major design flaw. The wires are wrapped in some sort of fabric. This cause major muffling anytime you move and the wires move. You basically have to be sitting motionless to enjoy the sound. I would not recommend buying these.

    Sound quality is indeed real good, but the noise from the cords rubbing on anything is pretty annoying. I read above that cord break in will help with this problem. I sure hope so...

      Awesome! Tried out about 8 pairs of headphones in the store and after comparing sound quality to cost these beat out the Beats Tours on BOTH sound quality and value! They're sleek, love the three sizes of ear pieces, travel case is very handy, and the wood really does make a difference in the sound resonance. I ride mass transit and these little guys block out the sound very well making my many hours of travel easier to deal with. Totally happy with my purchase, highly recommended.

      • Fabric Cord Noise

      Best Uses

        Comments about e5 Wood Earbuds:

        I got these as a birthday present. The fabric cord on the earbuds does create noise as they rub against, well, anything really. However, I've had fabric cord earphones before, and this noise diminishes substantially once the fabric relaxes over time. I expect these will do the same, but it usually takes a few weeks. The reason the noise is so prominent when they are new is because the cords are still stiff and vibrations travel quite easily all the way up the cord to your ear. Once the fabric relaxes the vibration ceases.Still, these are fantastic earbuds. They obviously aren't studio quality, but they are the best pair of earbuds I've ever heard. These are replacing a 5 year old pair of Denons I paid $200 for, and these sound better by far. I cranked up the computer and the iPod and the speakers kept up. More impressively, when plugged into my home sound system the earbuds still sounded great even compared to a set of Sennheiser HD 280 Pros. Obviously not quite as good, but great for earbuds. The sound does get a little mushy if the volume is turned up to an uncomfortable level, but since the sound isolation is so good it's not likely you'll ever have to keep your volume that high.The headset portion is serviceable, but noise creeps into the mic pretty easily. This is a problem with all earbud headsets.If these are still [$], I consider it the bargain of the century for high-end earbuds.

          Design flaw ruins otherwise great 'phone

          Best Uses

            Comments about e5 Wood Earbuds:

            These 'phones sound great and look awesome. So that's all fine. However, the cords are not coated with smooth rubber as is usually the case. Rather, the wires/cords are wrapped in a textural fabric of some sort. At the store, this gave them a premium feel and was a unique design that was really cool. Unfortunately, in use, this rough fabric around the wires rubs against the collar of my shirts or jackets while I'm using them. This causes a LOUD noise to travel right up the cord into the phones. This noise is constant. Whenever you move your head at all, the cords constantly rub on your clothes and make this noise. This flaw completely ruins these headphones. [$] and I will likely throw them away since the return period has expired. I was shocked this flaw was not exposed in the testing of this product. Brookstone's heads were in the right place, because, like I said, at first it sets these headphones apart and makes them different and cool, but in practice, there's a reason every other headphone in the universe since the beginning of time has had smooth rubber coating on the wires: It doesn't make noise when it rubs on your clothes. Note: This flaw doesn't actually make noise electronically in the headphones. Rather, the friction of the fabric wire coatings rubbing on your clothes travels up to the headphones and into your ear physically. Hard to explain, but everyone should know what I mean.

                First of all, I'll say I didn't buy these, but after trying them in the store, I certainly will soon.

                The earphones felt perfectly in my ears and were very comfortable and made a nice seal. The cord felt very durable and of high quality, though I couldn't test exactly how durable considering I was testing them in the store. They can get very loud, and I only need to keep the volume at half, which still had perfect enough sound quality. I couldn't even hear anything else besides the test music that was playing, that's how amazing these were.

                Out of all the earphones I tried at the store, these were the single best units. I'll be back to buy a pair soon.

                (About the sound quality, I'd say it was very good, I'd agree with the other reviewer about not having high bass, but that's a positive for me.)
