    BlackBerry Ear Gels

    Advertisement



    Is there anyway to make the eargels that were advertised earlier this year better? I'm referring to the ones that you got with the free skin from www.eshopunlimited.com.

    The problem I'm having with them is lack of bass. I have had these hooked up to every MP3 player (my Pearl, Rio Carbon 5GB, PSP via adapter, and iPod) I have and the same issue. I tossed the packaging so I can't return them. I didn't think it would bother me that much but I have not used them due to that issue.

    Outside of trying to make the openings a bit larger, nothing.

    Bass tones are composed of low frequency waves. If you compared them to treble waves, the bass would be much taller, and you could fit a lot more treble waves into the same space occupied by one bass wave. If you can picture that, you can see that the treble waves would "fit" much easier through the openings in the ear pieces.

    No worries, it just means there probably nothing you can do to increase the bass level.

    yeah, the treble and mid-range is great, but it's definately lacking in bass. I wish the original set that comes with the device were more comfortable, they sound great but hurt the ear the way they're shaped.

    Sorry, but I can't let this go. Frequency is related to wave length, not height or amplitude. For the same volume or loudness, High Frequency sound and Low frequency sounds would have the same amplitude or height. Increasing the size of the opening would only increase the volume across the frequency range of the speakers in the headset. I'm betting on the difference being dependent on the audio permissibility of material of the new ear buds causing the noted difference.

    That makes sense. Gel ear buds are probably like other products made of gel, they're designed for comfort more than anything else.

    This might be a case of too much research on what was comfortable, and not enough research on "how good does this sound".

    The main reason that gel earbuds don't have great bass sound is inherit with the size. Bass requires a larger cone to produce the bass sound. Bass sound and its longer wave length are created by pushing more air than a tweeter does for higher tones. The smaller cone cannot reproduce good bass since the cone size is small and cannot push as much air.

    That's the main reason a sub-woofer is so large and a tweeter is so small. To reproduce good bass, you would need a larger headset like a Bose over the ear headset.
