: What's the point of having an iPhone 4S (or any other flavor of iPhone or iPod for that matter) when you can't really hear the important words in a phone call or the quiet passages of your favorite audio or video? The Etymotic hf3 headset+earphone uses passive noise isolation technology to cut out the rest of the world — airplane engines, traffic noise, crying babies — without any drain on precious battery power. These buds really stay firmly in your ear and produce a clear, clean sound.
