  • They block out a fair bit of sound. For example, I put them in (no music playing), and can only just hear myself typing (I'm not a hunt-and-peck typist, and I make a fair amount of noise when I type).

    I can still hear what people are saying when they're in and I pause the music. That's inside in a quiet room though, no idea how they'd go out on the slopes...
