For me, portability is one. I find traveling with a bag of portable headphones still too inconvenient, while iems can be fitted into a case that lies in my pocket.

But after all I don't like the feeling of isolation, so my viewpoint may be quite irrelevant.

I can understand this. Generally I don't like wearing IEMs that isolate a lot due to safety reasons. Not to mention I just don't feel comfortable not feeling safe or not knowing what might be happening around me. Especially with cars in the area lol. Otherwise if I want to block people out I think it is wonderful.

Klipsh S4 has a better isolation, but not by much.

No,it is relevant Marchall, I use IEM´s to for the simple reason they are extreme compact, and I don´t like the complete blocking of outside noises due to safety reasons as it has been mentioned before.You still should be Aware of what happen around you when on the road in any or other form. On an airplane things are different,than some noise blocking IEM´s like the ones from Bose make sence,but I only fly once in a year, so I don´t Need those,

I really value the aspect of blocking other people out when I am travelling on public transport. The main problem with which, IMO, is the public!
I do try to be very aware of not being inconsiderate to those around me but I must admit that this is difficult when wearing IEM's.

at least do they isolate better than earpods?

post #5350 of 5567

Saw some guys wore the IEMs on the bus, but didn't fit their ears

are you using the double flange tips included? the ones that came with mine don't really fit me well.

 

anyone know of other tips that are better than the ones senn provides? (not a fan of complys).

post #5352 of 5567

The original double flange tips fits me fairly well, although after a long term it's a bit too tight. Sorry, I have no experience with other tips. Would love to know about other choices as well. 

post #5353 of 5567
IME. Custom tips FTW.
post #5354 of 5567

post #5355 of 5567
