  • What is the difference between the EX29 Plus and the EX25 Plus?
    The EX-29 has a Noise Reduction Rating of 29 dB and weighs 11.5 ounces. The EX-25 is more compact, has an NRR of 25 dB and weighs 2 ounces less. While both models feature TruSound Tonal Accuracy, the EX-29s use ultra-fidelity speakers with a sensitivity of 114 dB at 1,000 Hz. EX-25s feature a sensitivity of 107 dB at 1,000 Hz.
  • What is NRR?
    NRR or Noise Reduction Rating is a standard rating for how much a given product reduces external sound. The problem when specifying noise reduction amounts is that it varies with frequency – treble is generally reduced much more than bass. For example, the EX-29 attenuates 36.7 dB at 8,000 Hz and 25.2 dB at 500 Hz. NRR is used to give a standard single number as a convenient way to compare apples to apples. Other manufacturers often specify their noise reduction figures by using only a single high frequency to make their product look better. We could just as easily claim our EX-29s attenuate by 36.7 dB and we wouldn’t be telling a fib, but we don’t believe in misleading our customers. Rest assured the EX-29 and EX-25 offer the industry’s best isolation across all frequencies.

  • Do the headphones need to be tight to block sound?
