Stop the common problem of getting surfers ear with Surf Ears 2.0. Blocks Dirt, Bacteria and Water but lets sound in. The Boardshop Crews favourite ear plug
Large numbers of surfers, swimmers and water sports enthusiasts suffer from ear problems associated with excessive exposure to the elements. Ear infections and the dreaded "surfers ear” is a condition on the rise with increasing numbers seeking medical attention and ear surgery. SurfEars 2.0® is a revolutionary new product developed by a team of professional product designers and dedicated surfers from Sweden. SurfEars recognised that the critical difference between SurfEars and other earplug products is they not only protect ears from water, cold air, and contaminants but also maximize sound and subsequent balance essential for most water and board sports. Many of the earplugs on the market today block out sound, therefore large numbers of surfers choose to go without plugs. SurfEars was designed to keep the water out but also let the sound in, to enable users to stay connected to the environment.
How It Works
SurfEars are designed with an acoustic mesh that can be found in high end audio applications, blocking out water and protecting the ear while allowing the maximum amount of sound to enter the ear canal. The mesh is connected to a plastic core designed to replicate the natural resonance frequency of the ear and boosting acoustic performance. Independent tests show that SurfEars have close to zero acoustic loss in the frequency range of human speech. We’ve redesigned SurfEars 2.0 so you’ll be able to hear even be tter. Inverting the fixation between gel and core, we’ve managed to increase the area of the sound channel by 72%, while the triangular shape of the opening has increased surface area by 32%.
Other notable improvements are:
• Improved hearing due to increased volume of sound canal
• Improved hydrophobic coating (HY+), stays unclogged longer
• Leash option with length adjuster & wetsuit clip
• New improved ear buds with improved fit water seal. Improved fit for those with advanced Surfers Ear developmentOne set of SurfEars contains:
