I'm in the market for a new pair of ear-phones to go with my new ipod. My budget is no more than £80.
I have narrowed it down to 3 - the Bose in ears, the Shure SE210's or the new Sennheiser PXC 300.
the last of which are noise canceling. I have read many reviews of each of these, and many other earphone makers. The one thing that has plagued on my mind. Is that no reviews of any ear-canal type noise isolating designs mention this flaw.
I have 2 pairs of expensive sony in ear, one pair costing £35 the other nearly £60. And despite being noise isolating, i can hear every thump thump of my feet hitting the deck. And every time i move my head, the cable from the earphone rubbing against something goes straight into my head too. And quite frankly it p!sses me right off.
Are other ear-canal phones like this. Reviewers go on & on about sound quality, and they might block out the sounds of the bus they're on. But does all this other noise translate into your head too.
My use is going to be real-world. Traveling to & from work on a double decker bus. So what ear-phones are going to be best suited to me.
BTW my musical preference on my ipod is mostly Melodic Trance
