In-ear headphones introduction
In-ear headphones, also known as ear canal headphones, in-ear earplugs, or in-ear monitors (ie, the full English name of IEM: In-Ear-Monitor), are headphones used inside the human auditory organs. According to their design, they Will seal the user’s ear canal during use.
L and R are written on the earphone. L is left, which means the left channel. R is right, which means the right channel.
In-ear headphones are sometimes referred to as earplugs. It refers to headphones that are small enough to fit in the ears. There are two main types of earphones: earbud (non-in-ear) and canal phone (in-ear).
Earbuds are worn on the open part of the ear, usually outside the ear canal. They can increase the wearing comfort in the form of a “headband” or “ear hook”, but because they are not deep into the ear canal, they will naturally not form the kind of sealed listening environment.
Earphone function introduction
On the basis of ordinary earphones, in-ear earphones are inserted into the ear canal with a gel plug to obtain better airtightness. This greatly increases the performance of the headset, and this sealing basically provides two functions:
(1) Reduce the interference of external noise to music.
(2) A closed environment is provided, which greatly reduces the leakage of sound. From a practical point of view-in a noisy environment; you can enjoy music at a relatively low volume without being affected.
(2) a: Increase the texture and volume of the low frequency; b: Increase the performance of the music details. The tube of these headphones will be connected to the earmuff and inserted into the front half of the ear canal, thereby creating a sealed listening environment. Many high-end in-ear headphones even customize molds for customers’ ears to provide the best comfort and perfect sound insulation.
