Using a similar concept to Griffin’s Ear Jam clip on attachments for normal iPod earbuds, the 6i Isolator Earphones from Etymotic Research have been designed to squeeze right inside you ear, so music can be pumped directly down your ear canal. The earphones have been designed especially for use with iPod (which presumably means they’ve been painted white), and are now on sale in the UK throught Widget. The 6i’s apparently create an airtight seal, stopping interference from outside noises. You’ll have a hearing problem in no time, but at least the people sitting next to you on the train won’t have to listen to the tinny sound of your music bleeding out.
The Isolators cost £99.99 from Widget
