I was looking for a pair of in ear headphones to replace the ones that came with my nokia cell phone. I only use them for work since I wanted something relatively inconspicuous and portable. They sound ok but I could not stand how they amplify the sound whenever I rub against the wires. Every time I move I hear the deep rustling in my ears. Anyway so my hunt for headphones brought me to the Sony XBA-2 - these were on sale recently for 70% off so I picked them up. I like the sound quality compared to some other phones that I tried But right away I noticed they suffered from the exact same defect that the ones I'm trying to replace. That is whenever the wires rub against my clothes I hear it in my ear. I hate that and wonder if all earbuds suffer from this.
Is there anyway to minimize this problem (other than being completely motionless!)? like something I clamp to the wire to stop the sound from reaching the actual earbud?
Or can you recommend another pair that does not have this problem?
Otherwise I'll just use my sennheiser momentums and forget the earbuds entirely and save my ears the discomfort.:)
thanks in advance
