There are different sound isolation headphones on the market but all of them use basically the same features built into the headphones to isolate unwanted sounds from the surroundings.

Noise isolation is usually confused with noise cancellation in headphones.

Shure E5C Sound Isolating Earphones
The Shure E5c earphones are portable, lightweight earphones suited basically for their noise isolation capabilities.

These headphones have proven to customers that bigger are not always better when it comes to noise isolation.

Most people believe that the bigger over the ear headphone types with big earcups are usually more effective in isolating background noise.

The E5c headphones have put these assumptions in doubt as they rival most high level over the ear headphones in their noise isolation capabilities.

Noise isolation in the E5c's has been improved by the introduction of high powered, dual-driver speakers into these earbud headphones. These headphones are built specially with noise isolation and sound enhancement in mind.

The earbuds are quite large but they come with different sizes of earplug sleeves packaged in a fit kit which ensures that you can fit these earbuds to be tight and comfortable in the ears at the same time.

The foam sleeves expand to fit the shape of the ear canal which helps a great deal in isolating noise.

Sound quality in the Shure E5c is enhanced with its high-energy micro speakers and in-line crossover which enhances studio listening experience. These earphones produce amazing audio clarity which distinguishes even the tiniest sound detail.

Frequency response is good and ranges from low to high frequencies which represent most musical sounds.

The earbuds located in the ear canal delivers these high quality sounds right into your head and the listening experience can be described as "out of this world". Extended usage is also supported with these earphones as they are very comfortable in the ears.

Individuals with small ears may find these earphones quite uncomfortable though due to their somewhat large earbuds.

These earphones need to have a good seal to produce optimal sounds. They need to be inserted properly into the ear canals to isolate background sounds more effectively and quality of the seal also matters a lot in this respect.

Audiophiles will completely fall in love with the Shure E5c earphones as they can be regarded as truly spectacular audiophile headphones.

Users are advised to be careful when using these headphones outdoors especially when jogging as important sounds such as the honking of cars might not be heard.
