Introduction: Cheap Noise Insulation for Your Earphones
Strange ideas occur to at the most weirdest of times sometimes when your about to pass out, when your bent over the toilet puking, waking up next to a dumpster etc..what ? is it just me. This one however popped into my head when my ears started hurting from jamming my hard non insulated earphones deep into my ears at unhealthy high volumes to block out the street noises.
Everybody who's ever bought an earphone with an earbud has got a bunch of extra ear buds which are provided with it .use it to make a normal,cheap n good ol' fasioned (yep the ones i was jammin into my ears) earphones comfortable and noise insulated.
trust me it really gives u satisfaction to convert a cheapo earphone into something a bit better (maybe much better) . Also its damaging to your ears to listen at high volumes.
i've found that after using this method to insulate my earphones i have been listening to songs at 18th volume instead of the 23-24th.
