Earphones with best isolation for outsiders?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So, as much as I love my IM05 and IM02 series but are very loud headphones and they distract my colleges.

I want something that leaks very little sound, right now I have customs and it is working perfectly but I have to send it for remolding meaning, i will be 1-2 without headphones in the office so I need a replacement.

please help. thanks smily_headphones1.gif

Sennheiser IE8 isolates really well, particularly with some Comply ear tips, and as a bonus the isolation will allow these IEMs to seriously shake your brain with bass if you set them to do so

The IE8 is one of the worst I've heard in the category of isolation because of the vents (regardless of which tips are used).

Shure se 535, or really any shure as they have long nozzles, no vents and awesome olive tips, klipsch earphones are also good, mainly the x10`s, otherwise look for earphones with small bore size and no vent, so pretty much any ba earphone, for bore size info, have a look at the comply website, most well isolating, low leakage earphones have 100-200 size nozzles.

If you're more if a rock, jazz, hip hop guy then I'd go for the ER4P, if you want more ruler flat response or prefer more acoustic or classical music then the ER4S.

The S is also pretty power hungry so if you go with tht one make sure I can feed it some juice!
