"open" in-ear headphones? 2011-10-20 10:48:55 I've been using the Klipsch Image S2 in-ear headphones and loved them. Then i went ahead and lost them so now i'm looking for a new pair.The only problem i had with the Image S2's is that they were too isolating for me (one man's woe, another man's dough).So i wonder, is there such a thing as open or semi-open in-ear headphones? I like in-ear's because of the superior sound, which might well be due to their isolating design, i don't know.But maybe there is some kind of compromise? Something that sits good in the ear and has wide frequency range, but lets through a bit of the "background noise"?
