Bluetooth IEM delema

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

i need a new pair of headphones for commuting.  there is a ton of background noise on the train so sound isolation is more important than overall sound quality.

i haven't found much on the forums about them.  i know most people don't like wireless because the sound just isn't up to par.

but for me having a cable dangling when people are pushing and shoving just doesn't work.

i'm looking at these two.

anybody have any experience with these?

and forgot to add. 

they must have a mic.  i don't need full control, ie track forward and back, or even volume.

just a mic and a start stop button that also picks up and ends calls.

 

thx

Not sure of your price range but I find these: 

 

JayBird - BlueBuds X Bluetooth Earbud Headphones

 

to have excellent isolation and pretty decent sound. I don't know why they are so expensive on Amazon.com. Got mine at Best Buy for $169.

Well if noice isolation is so important for you I would suggest you to get something with active noise cancellation. AKG K 391 NC is a great choice for this and works miracles when you turn the NC on. Even though it is with cable I think you should check them out.

The reviews I read they mostly sound the same but I don't believe they have "shift" Which supposedly does something with the music once it is compressed for Bluetooth to make it sound better nor does it have Apt-x from what I noticed as well.

 

 

Personally if you are going to spend $100 for the jaybird freedom sprint's the extra $50 for the Jaybird Bluebud x is very much worth it for the 8 hour battery life  ( I get 7 hours )

Currently around $151

So - the train is so crowded you can't have wired IEMs, but you still talk on the phone? I'm glad I'm not riding on your train! tongue.gif

It's not about talking, it's about answering the phone if it rings and telling the other person we'll call them back!

Comprende?
