Getting your right Fit with Earphones

Getting your right Fit with Earphones


Comfort is one of the factors to consider when looking for a headphone and enhancing your music listening experience. We at Headphone Zone believe that your in-ear headphones must provide ample comfort in the form of their eartips. The advantage of choosing the right eartip is that they provide better noise isolation and increased clarity even at lower volumes. The right eartips are required to go with your in-ear earphones. Experiencing earache amongst music enthusiasts after extended listening sessions is a common problem. For this reason, we shouldn't undermine the value of an eartip that could fit like a dream as if you were not wearing earphones at all.


But enough about comfort, what else does eartip 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 decent passive noise isolation. With an earphone that offers a snug fit, ambient and external noises will be isolated, allowing you to experience every element in your music. The easiest way to achieve this is with quality eartips.


Some brands innovate their in-ears to include an angled eartip that adds to the ergonomics of the earphones. Keeping design aesthetics and looks in one place, only an eartip can compensate for the lack of a good fit. Knowing this, let's check out the different kinds of eartip styles available today that will help you make the right decision when shopping for earphones:



These are the most commonly found ear tips and come bundled with your earphones. Conventional silicone plastic sleeves vary in sizes from small, medium and large. Most consumer electronics manufacturers like Sony and premium headphone brands like JAYS and Shure opt to include silicone ear tips. As soft and comfortable as you may feel silicone ear tips are, there's always something better, ain't there?



Simply put, double flange eartips are intricately contoured ear gels that provide an accurate fit inside an ear canal. They are silicone sleeves revamped to be more comfort-oriented by feeling not only softer inside your ears but designed anatomically to reduce ear fatigue and allow for longer listening sessions. Triple Flange ear tips nearly cancel every noise outside by isolating the ear from your surroundings.



To achieve a better fit from your earphones while busy with your everyday lifestyle, choose ear hooks! As they convey by their name, ear hooks, hook your earphones inside your ear with a small curved design that fits into the outer part of your ear. To add to this, Ear Hooks are washable and waterproof to keep them hygienic. Sports earphones feature Ear hooks inbox.
