I’ve been using the Westone UM2 Earphones for quite a while now, and it’s been awesome. But this post isn’t (just) meant as a plug. There’s been a trend towards sound isolation earphones in recent years. That’s the first step any audiophile will recommend if you’re looking to improve the sound quality.

The better listening experience isn’t just because of better sound quality. It’s mainly (at least in my opinion) because the sound is isolated – the unwanted noise of the outside world is blocked out.

There’s an important point in this – adding value is not necessarily about adding more quality. Sometimes it’s about removing the noise. Especially in today’s world, where information is coming at us from every angle, at every time.

How are you filtering out noise to provide value for those around you?
