Loop the cables over your ears to reduce line noise and stop the earphones from popping out
on May 3, 2013
I loved the look and fit of these headphones. The soft rubber tips come in three sizes so I was able to experiment and find the perfect match for my ear size.
But while I loved the fit, I hated all the line noise (microphonics I think it is called) that constantly disrupted the music. Any movement I made caused the lines/cables to brush against my clothing and the brushing action would transfer a scrapping or rubbing noise to my ears. It was driving me crazy. I also had a constant problem with the earphones popping out with the slightest tug on the lines.
Then a friend suggested that that I loop the lines over my ears instead of letting the lines hang straight down. And guess what?! It worked! Just like that both problems were solved. Looping the lines over my greatly reduced the lines noise and the loop also stopped the earpiece from constantly popping out.
Thanks, Bonthouse, you saved the day.
