“Etymotic Research has a longer design cycle than most companies,” said Mead Killion, Ph.D., founder and president of Etymotic Research, “but when we introduce a new product, it usually receives widespread acclaim – which happened again this year with our hf2 iPhone headset. In fact, the ER-4 (developed in 1991) received another Editors’ Choice Award this year.”

Here are some Etymotic Research highlights for 2008:

  • Introduced the hf2™ premium headset for iPhone users. The high-fidelity, hands-free (“hfhf” or “hf2”) headset combines the accurate sound quality of Etymotic’s ER-4P earphones with a well-designed microphone and an end/send/track switch that automatically mutes/pauses music for an incoming phone call. The hf2 headset is available in ruby and black.

  • Received numerous awards for the hf2 headset, including two Best of Show awards at the 2008 Macworld Conference & Expo and Editors’ Choice awards from Mac/Life, Macworld UK (which also gave a five-star rating to the hf2 headset), PC Magazine, PC News Weekly and others.

  • Expanded global distribution of the hf2 premium headsets to include, Apple Stores in the U.S. and online, as well as Apple Europe, Apple China and Apple Australia.

  • Introduced the hf2 (ruby) premium headset for select Apple Stores in the U.S., online and Both colors are also available at Etymotic’s website,

  • Introduced the hf5™ earphones, designed for any audio device that accepts a 3.5mm stereo plug, including iPod and other MP3 music players, many smartphones, computers and CD players. This product was offered exclusively to for Q3 and Q4 2008. Etymotic’s fifth generation of noise-isolating, high-fidelity earphones are the same as those contained in the hf2 headset for iPhone, except without the microphone. The stylish hf5 earphones come in three colors: cobalt, ruby and black.
