  They don't look good, in a situation where I want to wear them :/ The mosques are very loud, wearing earphones would not look as bad. Plus, if you're wearing earphones, people keep quiet, they think you're listening to music. LOL

 
UE makes custom ear plugs.

  In that case, I would get a set of sealed iems (e.g. Westones or Shures).  With a good seal, they have noise isolation comparable to earplugs.

Looks like both of the brands have a huge lineup but someone PMed me about Etymotic, and I think they are going to be my next IEMs. 32-40 dB noise isolation, that is the most an ear plug can do, I am seriously :D Their 3 tip flanges are going to be dead quiet, I can see that. I was initially willing to buy their plugs but their IEMs give you the added features of a nice stereo sound and isolation. I wish they would fit into my complicated and most sensitive hearing. Thank you very much.

I not sure if this deal is active yet, but V-MODA is offering a free BoomPro mic with the purchase of either a Crossfade Wireless, M-100, or XS as a Father's Day promotion.
 
Here's a link to the flyer.

Wow...very good price. Didnt think they were going to drop in price so soon.

I need to sell my current Momentum over ears first before purchasing a new pair..

Used ones have been less than $150 before.

I've used my ER-4s for over a decade primarily on flights. They have been a godsend since I travel 80% of the time. They also have a new release coming out or possibly is out. They have lower cost models with similar isolation.

The lower cost models sound excellent as well. Proud owner of er4s. But I think the Etymotic mc5 is plenty good. A little more bass than the er4s, and slightly les refined, but very good for the money in my opinion. Same isolation as the er4. On sale for $53 on amazon. Usually $59

I have the HF5 (was $78)...very very good for the $$. Wouldn't throw EDM at it (use XB90EX for that)...but it's great for vocals, acoustic music, jazz, etc. And yes, incredible isolation although it took a while to get used to the fit! :wink:
