External sound-blocking earbuds make very nice sound

So these lovely 6isolator earphones from Etymotic Research just arrived, and once it became clear that they had to go in right against my ear drum, they sounded a lot less like an AM radio and a lot more like what they were sold as, which is very high-quality external noise-blocking earbuds. They’re just a little uncomfortable, but hopefully i’ll adjust or they’ll get better.

At $75 via Amazon, which is half off list price, they’d better be good… but so far so good. should be very good on the plane to/from NYC.

[later] “heresy (version)” from NIN FDTS v2 is playing… yes, these are very, very good.
