Best Sound Isolation
on September 15, 2012
I live in a supremely noisy household and have to study. These are my best friend. I can't hear anything - not the tv, not the dog, not someone talking directly to me and right next to me, not the hair dryer, seriously not anything and I have amazing hearing (people joke I have superman hearing). If you need to block out noise to focus but don't want to kill your eardrums, these will be your best friend. And what's even better? When the music is changing and therefore those silent 2 seconds, I still don't hear anything. The only downside to this would be if someone was in my house burglarizing me. That's how good they are. And I tested 8 different brands in the range of $10-100. I cannot afford to go higher than $100. If you're looking for over that for amazing noise isolation, then that's a different story. For the price I paid, the etymonic in-ears were the best and these foam buds were the best out of all the ear pieces they provided.
