Hello, I have a few questions about the ACS Custom Earphone Sleeves, and this forum looks like it's full of knowledgeable people.

 

I love to ride my bicycle and listen to music, but my town is really windy. The wind resistance on normal earphones is too loud, and I end up taking them out. In 2 weeks, I'm going to get some custom earplugs, for going to concerts, and thought I might also get the earphone sleeves.

 

I listen to a lot of different music, but mainly rock and pop. I'm not too bothered about 'booming bass'.
Some bands I like are Sum41, Blink 182, Linkin Park, Eminem, Ben Howard, and piano(Yiruma) and guitar(Sungha jung) music.

 

So, finally, here's my questions,

1. Will I get any wind resistance with the ACS Custom Earphone Sleeves?

 

2. I'm also curious if I will get the 'cord fumbling around' sound that is found with all the non-custom in-earphones, since I might go for a run with them in.

 

3. Any suggestions on what earphones I should get? I want to spend around £100, cheaper is better. I also want some that are 'discrete', or at least don't stick out. I've seen some that look like Frankenstein bolts coming from your ears.

Here's a link to the list of earphones ACS supports,.

4. Will my sleeves fit all the earphones on that list, or are they custom made for each pair of earphones? Their site doesn't say!
