Best Tips for Earphones and Bluetooth stay in better, sound better and
Earphones and earbuds are small and portable, and that's the best part about them, but
because they are small enough to fit in the ear, earphones bypass all the great sound
channeling features that were built into the anatomy of the ear. Those flaps and folds and
curves aren't just for looks, they help funnel and direct sound waves into the ear canal.
Unfortunately, earphones skip over the natural features that help guide sound into our ears.
Your ear was designed for function, not beauty.
You know that a poor fit makes earphones fall out easily, but did you know that a poor
fit is also the primary cause of that shrill, tinny sound and lack of bass many people
experience with earphones? Flat face style earphones, like the Apple earphones that were sold
with the iPod classic and early iPhones, sport a large, 14mm diameter speaker "under the
grille." Because of the large speaker size, Original Apple brand earphones can produce good
quality sound with ample bass. However, these and other flat faced style earphones have an
uncontrolled fit to the ear: They hook over the fold of the ear called the intertragic notch,
and the speaker face rests roughly outside the ear canal. Other earphones have additional
hoops that loop around the outside of the ear to keep the earpieces from tumbling out, but
none of these types of earphones align the speaker with the unique path of your ear canal or
provide sound isolation. As a result, users have described the sound as thin and tinny.
Poor fit contributes to poor sound quality.
In-ear earphones have gained in popularity as listeners look for ways to improve their
listening experience, while the flexible tips of in-ear headphones can help earphones stay in,
the smaller speaker size can noticeably reduce the bass. In-ear style earphones typically use
smaller speakers, 9 to 11 mm in diameter. A 10mm speaker has about half the surface area of
the 14mm speaker used in Original Apple Earphones. When it comes to bass output, speaker area
matters, and bass output can suffer with in-ear earphones.
Small speaker size trims bass output from in-ear earphones.
