ISOtunes Bluetooth Noise Isolating Earbuds Review

ISOtunes Bluetooth Pro 2.0 Noise Isolating Earbuds

Manufacturer: IsoTunes
Model number: Pro 2.0
Price: 89.00
Power source: USB battery charge - 16 hr talk / listen time
I recently tried out the new ISOtunes Bluetooth noise isolating earbuds Pro 2.0 model. To be honest I never liked the idea of wearing headphones with music because I felt it could impact site safety.

What changed my mind was reading that the ISOtunes Bluetooth Pro 2.0 noise isolating earbud restricts the music noise to 85 dBA.  While some may scoff at this because it restricts them from CRANKING the tunes – it’s smart. The Occupational Safety and Health Agency (OSHA) has determined safe noise levels and has made recommendations that specific ear protection devices be worn within sound levels of 85dB.

Jobsites Are Noisy

For many years I didn’t take proper care of my hearing on the job site. Hearing loss impairs quality of life and increases the risk of injury. Every year, thousands of construction workers suffer hearing loss from excessive noise exposure on the job. According to the CDC: 1 in 8 U.S. Workers Has Some Hearing Loss.  The construction industry comes in a second in terms of most hearing-impaired workers.

ISOtunes Pro 2.0 Earbuds

The ISOtunes Pro 2.0 earbuds double as hearing protection for the job site by offering excellent noise isolation.  They are rated for noise reduction of 27 dBA. Their effectiveness at noise reduction is achieved through the use of heat-activated, memory foam ear tips that expand to help block out noise.

Probably the tool that I use the most and hurts my ears the most is the high pitched whine of the multi-tool. When wearing the earbuds the noise is definitely reduced significantly.

Choosing ISOtunes Pro 2.0 Earbuds

I like this model because it has a wire connecting both earbud pieces which I KNOW will help me from losing them.  Plus, the ear hook wraps over and around your ears to provide a comfortable, secure fit all day for any ear.

The individual earbuds, while cool looking and wire-free will most likely get lost or find their way in my pocket and eventually meet their fate in the washing machine.

ISOtunes Pro 2.0 Bluetooth Connectivity

The ISOtunes Pro 2.0 earbuds offer a Bluetooth connection for wireless audio streaming.

ISOtunes says that the Pro 2.0 will play music and take calls 30+ feet from your device with Bluetooth 5.0 technology. We tested this and found it to be true as long as you don’t put too many rooms or obstacles in the way.

ISOtunes Pro 2.0 Runtime

The 2.0 version of these earbuds now enjoys 16+ hours of battery life of music and talk time. I made the mistake of leaving the earbuds on and putting them in my tool bag at the end of the day. The next day and several days later they’re still going strong. It seems that these headphones do not use a lot of battery life when in standby mode.

Using the ISOtunes Pro 2.0

What impressed me the most was the sound quality of the earbud speakers. It sounds great – and is clear. Also, my theory of getting the wire connected model, and not losing them was true.  When not using them I would pop them out of my ears and tuck the buds into my shirt crew neck.  I also became pretty good at putting them away at the end of the day in its pouch in my tool bags.

If I could improve one thing to these earbuds it would add on the magnets similar to the IsoTunes MAX, model. I don’t always want to wear earbuds, but I want them nearby for quick access. Since this model does not have a magnet, my solution was to tuck the earbuds and wire in my shirt crewneck. While this system works most of the time there were a few occasions where I felt the earbuds slip off and fall. Being able to attach both earbuds together with a magnet basically creates a necklace that won’t hall off.

Taking phone calls

The earbuds will also take phone calls and once I got used to pressing the correct buttons it worked great. The control button section has a noise-suppressing microphone with echo cancellation technology that helps block steady-state noise. [think engines, mowers, vacuums] The earbuds help isolate external noise on your ears, and the noise cancellation microphone helps folks hear you better.

As a small business owner, I’m constantly talking to subs, suppliers, and clients. Not having to dig under my tool belt for my phone is huge. Talking on the phone with the earbuds also work reasonably well in loud environments.


ISOtunes PRO 2.0 is rated IP67 which means that it is designed as dust-tight, no ingress of dust allowed. Additionally, it offers protection against the effects of immersion in water between 1 cm and 1 meter for 30-minutes.
