Arguments for sealed earbuds

Should I get sealed earbud headphones? I think so. The arguments for seem to outweigh the arguments against.

Arguments For

Sealed earbuds help drastically reduce the noise outside the ear, meaning you don’t need to turn the volume up just to enjoy your music over the following:

  • Aaron Neville
  • The guy and the girl behind me that are flirting like they’re still in the high school band.
  • Compulsive phone callers. “I’m getting out of class now”
  • Tigger

Arguments Against

Being aware of your environment is important. Safety I suppose, but more importantly, social interaction is nice. Can’t wear them on a bike either, that would just be wreckless.
