Elk Grove Village, IL (PRWEB) February 18, 2014
Etymotic Research, an innovator in hearing wellness solutions, announces a new look for its Music•PRO® Electronic Earplugs. Inspired by the form factor of the company’s “Bean Quiet Sound Amplifier,” this latest version of the Music•PRO will be available for $299 on Etymotic.com, Amazon.com, Etymotic’s network of hearing solution providers and select retailers and music specialty stores, beginning on February 17, 2014.
Since their introduction in 2012, Etymotic’s Music•PRO® Electronic Earplugs have helped revolutionize hearing protection by automatically adapting to unsafe sound levels and restoring natural hearing when hearing is not at risk. Users can avoid the inconvenience of removing earplugs to hear clearly. The soft sounds of music and speech are also amplified in the Music•PRO’s enhancement mode.
The active circuit allows for natural hearing when sound is safe and provides automatic protection from both loud, sustained music and sudden, loud percussive sounds. Advanced signal processing, wide bandwidth, high-sensitivity microphones and high-definition balanced-armature drivers combine to give musicians a true high-fidelity experience. Like the original model, the new Music•PROs come with a selection of eartips that fit the majority of users, with custom eartips an available option.
“Music-induced hearing loss is preventable,” says Dr. Patricia Johnson, audiologist and hearing conservation specialist at Etymotic. “Etymotic has been providing the world’s only truly flat-attenuation, passive hearing protection to musicians for more than 25 years. We’re pleased to launch this new version of our electronic earplugs that lets wearers hear music naturally until it exceeds safe levels. No other devices can do that.”
Features of Music•PRO 9-15 earplugs:
- Protection is active only when hearing is at risk
- Automatic activation of 9- or 15-dB flat attenuation, depending on the mode selected
- Dynamics and timbre are unaltered
- Protection from extremely high-level sound
