No More………..Noise!



We just finished testing these super light and compact earphones that promised to deliver superb sound and still block out all that traffic and airplane engine noise surrounding you.  It didn’t take long to figure out that these very affordable earphones delivery exactly what they promise.

Etymotic Research Inc., a world leader of In-The-Ear technology has just introduced the MK5 Isolator Earphones to their noise isolation earphone series. These earphones are a great option for anyone who is on the go and looking for noise isolation without the bulk. These noise isolation earphones physically block out ambient noises such as the drone of an airplane by sealing against your ear. Noise cancellation headphones by comparison, seek to accomplish the same goal but do so by electronically blocking the soundwaves which creates bulk and the need for batteries or another power source.


The MK5 Isolator Earphones are designed to provide clear sounds and great bass while blocking out unwanted background noise and eliminating the need to turn up the volume. Since these earphones are designed to fit inside the ear canal they can be worn for long periods of time without the jaw discomfort that comes with over the ear headphones. They are compact, light-weight, good for travelling or working out and at $65, they are also a great value.

Best Noise Isolation

Etymotic’s earphones have the highest noise isolation of all earphones, as measured by an independent laboratory accredited by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Reduction of outside noise lowers the risk of listening at unsafe levels.
