Blockade Noise Isolating Earbuds are $14.99. Are the Blockade Noise Isolating Earbuds an alternative to expensive earbuds sold by companies such as Bose? Blockade Noise Isolating Earbuds could be a great alternative, but many people are skeptical.
Â Blockadeâ€™s earbuds are noise â€œisolatingâ€ wheras expensive counterparts are noise â€œcanceling.â€Â There is a difference between the two.Â Noise canceling earbuds require batteries, as they contain electronics inside that cover up outside noise with white noise.
Â Noise â€œisolatingâ€ earbuds, however, are nothing more than rubber tips jammed in your ears.Â Blockade calls this a â€œtriple flange noise isolating system.â€ There are no batteries, and the Blockade Noise Isolating Earbuds probably arenâ€™t as comfy as the Bose QuietComfort earbuds.
Â The Blockade Noise Isolating Earbuds do have some benefits, however.Â They have a hearing-saving volume limiter.Â The earbuds wonâ€™t let you listen to anything above 91 decibels.
Â Some say that Appleâ€™s stock earphones produce a better overall sound.Â Those that are sound connoisseurs should probably stick to more expensive earphones.Â However, those with a limited budget may find the Blockade Noise Isolating Earbuds a great Christmas gift for a kid or teenager that wants expensive Bose earbuds.
