    Bose Tri Port IE a Review

    these do not isolate, but do isolate better than standard earbud designs. however if you are in a location with a lot of ambient sound then it does adversely effect the sound stage and musical details. in a quiet setting they sound fantastic for what they are. Im going to try to break...
