In ear headphones (also known as canalphones or in ear monitors (IEMs)) sit inside your ears and block ambient noises with the help of their cushioned sleeves. These are very lightweight and portable headphones and are ideal for users who do not want too much weight on their head as well as for those who like to listen to music while doing exercise or running. The noise isolation or cancellation feature helps in blocking external sounds thus providing quality music without any hindrance.

Tips before buying In Ear Noise Cancelling Headphones

Comfort: Choose the headphones which come with multiple sleeves so that you can choose the best fit for your ears. Also make sure that these do not fall out of your ears when you move your head.

Sound Quality: Do check your various favorite songs and make sure that the headphones deliver best result. Check for highs, mids and lows if you have a knack for music. Certainly, this is the most important aspect when it comes to judging a pair of headphones for your personal use.

Noise Isolation: Most of IEMs are noise isolating in nature so test the headphones in noisy environments or at the places where you prefer to wear them. If the noise isolation is not working as expected, try to check it with different size of sleeves to block the noise.

Build Quality: In the ear headphones have thin wires so make sure that the wires are sturdy and do not break while disentangling them. Also make sure that the body of the headphones is made up of a good material and looks sturdy as well as durable.

Warranty: Purchase the headphones from a brand which gives you a good warranty period. I had to replace my Sennheisers just before the warranty was about to expire and guess what, those came with two years of warranty.

Price: For great price you can get professional in ear monitors but some headphones are very good at a very decent price. Do not assume that higher the price, better the sound will be. There are many headphones which fit different kinds of budgets and I am sure you will find one that will suit yours.


It is true that in ear headphones are not as great as their big brothers while delivering the music, producing thumping bass and providing larger soundstage but don’t underestimate these pairs.

Excellent sound, amazing portability and ease of use make them favourite for most.
