Boise, ID (PRWEB) April 24, 2012
We all do it: exercise to our favorite beats to pump it up, or make it through to the last sweat. What a lot of us don't know is it can be dangerous. When those little ear buds make themselves at home into our ear canals, it seals off the sounds of a passing car, barking dog or other warning sounds. Without the ability to hear these environmental sounds, Environmental Isolation is created.
The proof is in the statistics. A January study published online by Injury Prevention found 116 reports of death or injury involved pedestrians wearing headphones, a majority being male and under 30 years old. 74% of case reports stated the victim wore headphones at the time of the incident. In many cases mentioned, a warning was sounded before.
The study concluded that the headphone use with handheld devices may pose a safety risk to pedestrians, especially in environments with moving vehicles. It was noted that further research is needed to determine if and how headphone use compromises pedestrian safety.
If you see the proof in the numbers, earHero's are the answer to eliminate Environmental Isolation in totality. No more worries on if a car is coming, that dog is barking or a hazard is sounding.
These earphones are in a class of their own, and have just become available to the general public this year. The tiny buds are inserted directly into the ear and provide a solution to the dangers of Environmental Isolation. The discreet, lightweight sound system stays in place even on the most intense workouts.
The system uses miniature speakers that are so tiny they never block the ear canal which allows the workout enthusiast to hear sounds around them while still rocking out to that awesome song that keeps the rhythm going.
So what are you waiting for? Take the stress out of isolated workouts and bring it on in the safest way possible. Sunshine, safety and sweat are calling your name. The World's Safest Earphones can be purchased at http://www.earhero.com.
earHero's are a proprietary and patent pending product. Products and information are available at http://www.earhero.com.
About the audiologist inventor: Matt Murphy knew that standard earphones were unsafe due to Environmental Isolation. He created a product that would allow people to listen to music while maintaining awareness of sounds around them. Murphy not only invented this safe sound system, he uses it in his workouts and so does his family.
"The earHero earphones do not seal the ear so the sound pressure is released and the outside sound is allowed to enter the ear," Murphy said.
Murphy is a clinical audiologist with a private practice in Boise Idaho. Murphy and his wife Mali are audiologists. They are members of the American Speech and Hearing Association and own the House of Hearing Audiology Clinic. The clinic is a family business that was started in 1974, http://www.houseofhearingclinic.com
Murphy specializes in testing and fitting of the latest hearing aid technology. He is dedicated to helping seniors with all of their hearing needs, and founded earHero Sales, Inc., http://www.earhero.com. Murphy developed the earHero line of earphones that allow the user to listen to music or two-way radio and maintain constant awareness to environmental sounds.
