Just a day back when I was returning from Pune, I got the first seat with the door lock broken so the engine noise was quite loud. As soon as the bus hit the expressway I popped up the EP-635s and the noise cancellation was really amazing, good enough to make me go off to sleep.

I think they are pretty good.

There is not much of difference in 635s.
They have somethings like:
1) Light-weight design
2) Fashionable Neck Strap
3) Oxygen-Free Copper cable

I wanted my 'phones in white, they had 630s in black and 635s in white and are bit expensive than the 630s.

Never heard of Renotech brand before. For 325 $ or Euro, they sound very expensive. I have Ultimate Ears Super.Fi Studio 3 and highly recommended for their voice quality. At 74$, they aren't as expensive as others.

Denon AH-C551 is another earplug I will highly recommend over Super.Fi Studio 3. Shure E2C is not comparable to the above 2. Under 100$ Denon is best bang for bucks. Sennheiser is great in headphones but not so good when compared with the specialists. And they are pretty expensive when bought from the official indian outlets.

PS: The only gripe you will come across UE Studio3 is that they have a rather normal, plain bass. In other words, it is not too strong but just right. So the folks who love heavy Bass, they should probably look for Denon or Super.Fi Pro5 (140$). SuperFi Pro5 is amazing and beats the comparable Shure (Probably E3c)/ Etymotic. EB version is for those who love Extra Bass. Trust me, it is highly rated amogst the audiophiles & professional alike.

Oh I forgot to add a testimony about my UE Studio3. I was standing on the Mumbai Locals footboard and locals after locals passed by me. I didn't hear a single thing and all this time, I was using the K750i Radio with the UE.3.

Another time, when Ganesh visarjan was happening, it blocked all the noise of crackers and big black speakers box bursting full throttle right beside me (10k ka 3 / 4 ladi). Not a single noise could seep in. Such good is the noise cancellation of these. Pretty comfortable as well although I've heard that they are more comfortable with the Shure Olive ear tips.

Just found out that it was founded by one of the Shure's sound engineers who was in Shure E1 & E5 design team. For more info on this brand, you can go to the following page:

Ultimate Ears - A Look Inside Ultimate Ears' Legendary Quality

An excerpt from the above link:

"Ultimate Ears' innovations didn't just include their own products: Jerry Harvey was on the design team that conceptualized and manufactured the Shure E1 and the Shure E5, the first universal-fit dual-driver monitors. "

Mods This is not an advertorial. Please, please don't delete the post. I saw too many people for not so great products, so had to come up with these facts. But no respect lost for anyone who bought anything else.

EP630 are noise isolating and not canceling. I just replaced my Senn PX 100 with the EP630 for subway use and am glad I did. Got a fantastic price from dell and it comes with 3 *spare* earplugs (different sizes).

Tsk, I think they would be idea for the gym if the ambient noise (read Kanta laga) is not too high.

The quality is decent but not great. Would suffice for usage in a noisy environment but I have had much better results with the PX 100 in home or office environs. Overall, would definitely recommend for bus, train or plane use.

I had a Shure E2C for a couple of years. Bought it for around 80 Pounds. Super sound quality. Abused it a lot till it couldn't take anymore.

Currently I use creative Aurvana earphone. They compare favorably against Shures E2C. I got them for around 90 Singapore Dollars. Super comfortable, light and rich neutral sound. Highly recommended.
