Etymotic launches custom-fitted hf2 headphones

If you've always struggled to get in-ear headphones to do what they should and stay in your ears, Etymotic has come up with the solution with its cust

Developed exclusively for the Apple clan, the hf2 custom-fit headset will work with iPhones and iPods and as they're made especially for your ear, the idea is that you'll be able to wear them for longer.

To get your headphones fitted, you'll have to go to one of the 300 ear impression outlets where they'll put pump blue silicon into your ears to get the mould before sending it off to be made. A lot of the guys here at Stuff Towers have had it done, and apparently it's not as weird as it sounds.

The process takes a couple of weeks, but you're promised high-fidelity sound and noise isolation for your wait – plus your mates won't be able to nab your earphones off you anymore which is always a bonus. You'll get a range of ear tips when you buy the headphones as well so you won't be sans headphones while you wait.

The hf2 custom-fit headphones will be available from 28 April from Apple stores.
