in ears for bus, train AND sport

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

hej guys i just realised that my koss porta pro leaks a lot sound and that's pretty bad cause i like to listen to rock and metal pretty loudly. Like that i recived a lot of angry AND scared views lol from older ladies and gentlemen. :) long live music! Anyways I am looking for some in ears that stay in my ear while running and workout, isolate well so that i cant hear the outside and other people cannot hear what i am listening to (TRAIN, BUS walking on the street). Of course the sound should be pretty solid to (bass, generally a fun in ear). well comfort would be nice as well haha

best regards and thanks in advance,

Alex

What's the return policy over there? While I have no apprehension about its sound, the blocky shells did not fit well in my ears, and I imagine a lot of other people might have the same problem. It's either a good return policy or try it out beforehand at a brick and mortar store/head-fi meet; but then again, I never really bought anything without trying it first.

 

Read up on the Earsonics SM2 also, see if the sound is kind of like what you're looking for. And check the website - there might be a dealer near you that has demo units. They're based in France I think.

Like I said, I'm not positive about it's comfort at any price point, based on their fit in my ears. Since you can return them without any issues, I'd say they're worth trying out at the very least, as I actually liked the sound. It really was the fit that was a problem for me.
