I've been spoiled
I am genuinely surprised by how much I've fallen in love with these. So I'm really basic when it comes to audio. I use Google Music on my iPhone, and that's good enough for me. For the longest time I'd just buy whatever was under $20 at my local Duane Reade. Then I started complaining about needing noise cancelling, and I ended up receiving Audio-Technica ATH-ANC33iS as a gift. I was fine with those because they did cancel a lot of noise. The sound quality tho? Lol I didn't realize just how little definition I was getting until I tried the S&W SI201,, and the S&W SI201 are *cheaper*. It feels like the audio equivalent of someone restoring one of those yellowed paintings and you discover all the amazing color hiding underneath. Seriously, all I did was change earphones and suddenly I'm a spoiled audio snob. I can't ever go back. In terms of noise reduction, the S&W SI201 functions essentially like earplugs. It has multiple eartip sizes, with the Medium being the most snug for me. Definitely better than the ATH-ANC33iS in terms of overall comfort, plus I don't need to worry about using/replacing batteries for practically the same level of isolation. (Plus whenever I walk around with them, I feel like I'm using a fancier version of Apple's earphones without going full AirPod.) I think the only downside is I can't use the S&W SI201 with my laptop because of the lightning connector. I really love the sound on them though. I hope the company comes out with equally amazing earphones I can use everywhere.
