Hi there, I used to have a leakage problem with my old iPod earphones (i.e. the person next to me is disturbed when I have the sound on a volume comfortable for me.) When I got new iPhone earphones I thought the problem might be fixed because they seemed better at it, and when I put my hands over my ears less sound seemed to leak. However after about 8 months of use the problem is reappearing. Has anybody seen sound leakage to increase with wear and tear? I was wondering if new Apple earphones would solve the problem.
