Getting your right Fit with Earphones


Comfort Comes First

Comfort is one of the key factors that maketh a good headphone. We at Headphone Zone believe that to enhance and supplement a complete listening experience, your in-ear headphones must provide ample comfort in the form of its eartips. Besides comfort though, the advantages of having the right eartip stretch to providing better noise isolation and increased clarity even at louder volumes. The right eartips are required to go with your in-ear earphones. Experiencing earache amongst music enthusiasts after extended listening sessions is not unheard of. Which is why, we shouldn't undermine the value of an eartip that could fit like a dream, as if you were not wearing earphones at all.


Passive Noise Cancellation

But enough about comfort, what else does a good eartip have on offer? The obvious answer is better noise isolation. If you don't have a big budget to spend on Active Noise Cancelling Headphones and live in a bustling environment, you deserve to have eartips that provide good passive noise isolation. If you get a snug fit from your earphones, naturally ambient and external noises will be blocked out well allowing you to experience richer bass beats and have every sound clearly accentuated for your listening pleasure.


Eartip Designs

There are also some brands that innovate their in-ears to have an angled eartip design that adds to the ergonomics of the earphones. All the same, keeping design appeal and looks in one place, it cannot compensate for the lack of a good fit that only the right eartip can guarantee. Let's check out the different kinds of eartip styles available today that will help you make the right decision when shopping for earphones:


Silicone Ear Tips


Most commonly found ear tips included with your earphones. Conventional silicone plastic sleeves varying in sizes of small, medium and large. Most Consumer Electronic Manufacturers like Sony and Panasonic as well as Premium headphone brands like RHA, JAYS and Shure opt to include Silicone tips.

Dual-density Ear tips

Dual density ear tips are exclusive to RHA's in-ear headphones. Their design is such that it has a strong core on the inside and a soft silicone material on the outside.

Their high-end earphones such as the RHA MA750i come with as many as 6 eartips to choose from depending on your ear size: 2 Small, 2 Medium and 2 Large.

 

Double Flange & Triple Flange Ear tips
