Uncharacteristically, I went out yesterday with my D1001s. There wasn't much traffic and there was no construction going on on my route. As such, the D1001s did a pretty good job as portables. Cept they make me look like a male, Asian, Princess Leia. Then, later that day, I went out with my C551s. Again, there wasn't much traffic and there was no construction going on. And I was much, much less pleased with the isolation that these offered. Both times, the iPod Touch was set at 50%, which is pretty high for me. This...doesn't make sense to me. Am I not achieving a good seal with my C551s (they feel fine)? Or does anyone else have similar experiences?

I feel the same way. Maybe cuz the C551s have an "air port" in both sides?
