The Ins & Outs of Noise Isolating Earphones

1 Reply

We’ve all been in situations where we’d like to eliminate unwanted ambient noise; noisy passengers on an airplane, the sounds of a busy city street, or everyday noise that interrupts our music enjoyment. The good news is that advancing noise isolating technology has allowed earphone manufacturers to develop and offer products that successfully reduce and isolate unwanted noise.

 

How do noise isolating earphones work?

Noise isolating earphones work passively to isolate external noise without producing opposing frequencies. These earphones create a seal within a wearer’s ear that reduces external noise and prevents it from entering the ears. Noise isolating earphones naturally prevent noise from entering the ear by a snug fit and the acoustic properties of the sleeve or tip. They don’t require any additional circuitry or batteries to isolate unwanted noise.

 

How can you benefit from noise isolating earphones?

There are a many different benefits of noise isolating earphones, including the:

  • Size Noise isolating earphones are small, portable and easily stowed in a purse or bag. Ideal for travel, they can go anywhere.

  • Sounds A proper fit offers wearers rich low tones and clear mids and highs. Music lovers appreciate the sounds provided by the earphones and the ambient noise isolation.

  • Custom fit Manufacturers typically offer wearers a variety of tip sizes to ensure a proper fit. Wearers should take the time to test the earphones with the different size tips for the ideal, customized fit.

  • Noise reduction Noise isolating earphones essentially separate the wearer from ambient noise by elevating the desired sounds. Wearers will enjoy listening to their favorite music without worrying about unwanted sounds.

 

How do different companies use noise isolation technology?

  • Shure All of the earphones produced by Shure are noise isolating. Their models come with multiple sizes and styles of sleeves so wearers can find the perfect fit that will provide effective noise isolation. Wearers can experiment with these different sleeves to find the fit that works best. Shure’s noise isolation technology works across the audible spectrum and blocks sounds such as a television, music, and human speech. They are ideal for use in noisy situations such as on an airplane, in a subway, or on a busy city street.

  • Westone Westone, famous in the professional audio industry, also manufacturers state of the art noise isolating earphones. They come with two sizes of foam tips, three sizes of bulb shaped rubber tips,  a pair of universal fit triple flange tips, and three sizes of bell shaped silicon tips. The foam tips will likely provide the best noise isolation because they are designed to expand and contract to mold to the wearer’s ears. This concept isolates unwanted noise and allows the wearer to get lost in the music. Westone provides a four driver design that offers four balanced armature drivers and a three way crossover.
