Symphonized NRG 3.0 Earbuds

Best Passive Noise Isolation Earbuds

Why people love it
  • Minimal ambient sound leakage; excellent passive noise isolation
  • Durable, portable, and great for active use
  • Very solid bass, clear highs, and decent mids

Not the best sound quality, and the in-ear fit can be slightly uncomfortable.


Design: These headphones are built like any typical pair of earbuds: a 3.5 mm jack at the end of a long cable, with the split cable leading to your silicone-tipped earphones. However, the earbuds are made of handcrafted wood rather than metal, giving them a unique sound. They are sleek, stylish, and definitely one of a kind.

Performance: In terms of sound quality, reviews are a bit of a mixed bag. You'll find some users who love their punchy, forceful bass and crisp highs, while others say the sound is too "dark" for more critical listening. The average person won't have a problem with the sound quality, however, so you can use them for gaming, TV watching, workouts, or listening to music without problem.

The real "pro" of these headphones is their passive noise isolation. They have no noise cancelling technology built in, but their closed-back design and silicone ear tips are designed just right so that they block out the majority of ambient noise. If you are working in a loud environment, this is a GREAT pair of cheap noise isolation headphones.

Features: The headphones come with an easy-to-use volume control, a button to answer/end calls, Voice Control activation, and an in-line microphone that allows you to control your phone (Siri or "Ok Google"). With its 3.5 mm jack, you can plug it into literally ANY smartphone, computer, or mobile device, making it a very convenient pair of headphones to use.

Price: At just $26 per pair, these deliver great value at a reasonable price. They are durable, if not totally water-resistant, and they will be a good pair of headphones for your casual, everyday use.
