I first heard about the Shure earphones from Barak and bought the e2c's. I blogged about it. With the help of Google, people interested in e2c's including Matt, who was the product manager for the e2c's found my blog entry. When the e5c's came out, I blogged about them too. Hundreds of comments later, both of these entries have become discussions including testimonials and lots and lots of answers from Matt replying to questions about the products and distribution. This human voice dialog is why I think blogging is so great for companies with great products.

Last week, I talked to Matt and Susan from Shure on the phone about experimenting with blogs. Matt's started a blog. Hopefully we can set up some combination of a wiki and a blog to help Shure reach out to us and for us to give them feedback.

matt:

i have gone through 2 pairs of e2c earphones. the first one was broke right out of the package -left earphone sounded blown and now my other pair sound like they are blown. first pair i was using a sony discman and second pair i was using a iriver cd player. i listen to it loud but not to the point of distortion or anything. Do you have any idea why they might be blowing out. i have heard people talking on boards about using these with a headphone amp which i dont understand if mine are blowing out just from a portable device.

thanks

Joe Pickle: I tried to email you, but it bounced back. So I responded to you at Head-Fi (where you posted the same information as you did here and in the other entry of Joi's). Hopefully you got that information.

OK.. these are not new but they are the best accessory that I have purchased for my iPod. The Shure headphones are some of the best that I have tried. I am surprised that the Apple store doesn't sell them... Read More

Joi Ito blogs about the conversation about Shure earphones that took place on his site. I was so impressed with the way the Product Manager jumped right in, and the response he got, I ended up forwarding the post to Read More
