Matt Murphy, owner of House of Hearing Audiology Clinic and creator of earHero earphones, the world’s safest in-ear headphones, has recently been interviewed by Fred Fishkin of BootCamp.com, a leading source of reviews and interviews for everything related to gadgets and gears. Here’s a summary of what he had to say.
On How the Concept Was Born
The whole idea of creating earHero was born nine years ago on a skiing trip. Noticing that all of their friends cannot hear what the others are saying without taking their earphones off, Matt and his wife decided to design an earphone that would allow users to enjoy their music without making them oblivious to their environment.
On What Makes EarHero Different
There are a lot of reasons why the earHero earphone stands out over the rest of the competition. For one, it is designed to be virtually invisible to the naked eyes. This is the very reason why the Secret Service, one of earHero’s biggest clients to date, favors it over the traditional coiled-tube headphones. TheearHero earphones are so small that they can be usedfor surveillance purposes without being noticed by almost everyone around them. In addition, they also appreciate the fact that it can be worn for long periods of time without causing any discomfort.
EarHero earphones are also safe to use. Aside from the fact that you can use them to listen to your favorite tunes or podcasts without making you unaware of what’s happening around you, you can also wear them without damaging your ears. Unlike traditional earphones, these earphones are so small that they don’t completely seal the ear canals. By eliminating the probability of sound pressure building up inside your ears, you don’t have to worry about sustaining hearing loss even if you use it for extended periods of time.
The only downside is that while the audio quality is quite good, some of the bass in the music is lost – an issue that the CEO is currently working on.
