Default Earphones - why they don't do the job

I like sound to calm down, but I find those small yokes in your ears are crap.

I bought the big expensive ones but they don't do it either.

I want sound banging against walls and windows.

How can I get that with earphones?

And no, turning them up doesn't work.

I like to pick the earwax out of my earphones, TBH.

They were probably a bit OTT for what you really need. Sennheiser , make some excellent entry level cans, that are much more affordable . Frequency range, would be a bit less but you probably wouldn't really notice it, unless you were mixing brass instruments. I'd also recommend Sennheiser for durability and quality. I'm got a few bits and pieces knocking around from the 90s, that are still working well.

These are quite large, not really for walking around with, I'm assuming these are for home use. I wouldn't recommend any of this stuff for walking around though.

Sennheiser HD-650
