noise canceling iem's is a bit of overkill isn't it? if the iem's fit correctly, they already isolate the listener from the environment. if they don't fit correctly, the listener isn't going to be able to hear his music accurately. i have some iem's, and when fit correctly, they isolate the majority of outside noise. adding noise cancellation seems like overkill. factor in the fact that noise canceling impedes on your ability to perceive some audible frequencies, these sound bunk. i wouldn't be surprised if their "touched cord" noise reduction is one of those clips that keep your cord attached to your shirt and prevent it from moving around.

first foray indeed.
