While I’d love better sound, my key necessity is: noise isolation.
In trying & trying I’ve only had triple flange tips or Klipsch oval fit deep enough and seal enough to isolate (Comply doesn’t do “it” for me). My #1 choice so far is Plugfones with 26dB NRR which comes w/flanged tips. About the only units that have a long enough tube (whatever you call the piece you put the tip onto) to let the tip get in enough w/out the driver pushing against my ear keeping the tips from seating are Jaybirds (only tried X2).
So, my question: will these achieve at least 24dB NRR isolation?
I haven't measured but in general these have better than average isolation. The nozzle on the Stride is smaller than what you find on normal bluetooth IEMs as we don´ t need to keep driver inside the nozzle.
Let me check if our team has any data of the isolation. I´ll get back to you.
Average isolation -- 90-95% of all IEMs I've tried (of a dozen or two) are unusably low isolation (as in: only usable in a library).
Is it that nozzle LENGTH is smaller or the DIAMETER?
If the length is shorter, then it'll be mighty tough to put a triple flange on and have it reach down into my canal.
What's the diameter of the nozzle if you don't mind me asking?
The length can be longer than some other earphones have. Certainly not the shortest. Diameter of the nozzle is smaller.
Tip of the nozzle is about 5mm.
