Similar in appearance to Altec Lansing’s iM716s (iLounge rating: B+), the black iM616s step down on price and audio quality: they’re touted as similar in clarity and slightly better in frequency response than Etymotic’s ER-6i, but we found them brighter than the ER-6i with identical triple flanges; they sounded better with foams. Thicker cords than the ER-6is create more noise in the buds when you move. But they’re nice-looking, and come with a hard case.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
