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 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 eartip is 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 a eartip that could fit like a dream, as if you were not wearing headphones 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 busting 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:
