    Noise Isolating Earphones

    I know you DJs like to show off your nice headphones, but I prefer earphones as they are smaller and easier to transport and offer pretty good comfort.

    Maybe some of you might be able to help me out here..

    I've got some Creative labs EP-830 earphones on me right now..I'm thinking of "upgrading" maybe to something like this

    Etymotic Research, Inc. - Earphone Comparision

    I was hoping you guys could help me out..I'm not too willing on going over 90 or so CAD dollars..(I know the Etymotic is 150 min..I was just giving an example)

    Thanks

    Yeah it is, but sometimes you find good deals on stuff that resemble or are superior ..

    I'm not in a rush or anything, but if people have input, well it helps..as stock earphones and the 10$ ones you find at your local electronics store don't last too long..

    You need to look into moulded 'monitors' if you want isolation. The only problem with having in ear monitoring is that because of the small cone size of the driver there is a limit to the amplification and frequencies that can be outputted.

    I have the Technics headphones (same as Armin) and theyre great for isolation, they are however too big. My next pair will be the Senheisers HD25's (or 125's whatever) as ive used these several times at a few gigs and they are quality.

    Don't those have open backs though? Doesn't that kinda diminish the "isolating" effect?

    got some creative in-earphones too and really happy with them, also they come with 3 different sizes of rubbers so that they will surely fit and stay in your ear when you listen to your music.. they cost me a bit but well, it's worth it's price.
