Etymotic is famous for its great-sounding earphones and has offered up a pair of Hf5 earphones for this week's giveaway.
In our review of the HF5s, Jasmine France said these guys "offer great sound quality for the price, superior noise-isolation capability, and a sleek, understated design available in a handful of colors." As someone who likes well-balanced earphones (read: not bass-heavy), they're among my personal favorites in the $100-$200 range and they really do offer excellent noise-isolation (they come with three different kinds of eartips). The package also includes a travel pouch.
Normally, the Hf5 earphones would cost about $120, but you have the chance to get them gratis.
