In addition to enhancing hearing for those who already suffer with hearing loss, the H2P can help thousands of people who work in noisy, loud settings like factories or airport tarmacs, and even musicians and auto racing pit crews.
Draper, Utah (PRWEB) July 25, 2016
With consumers showing strong support for the new H2P hearing protection and enhancement device, investing more than $190,000 on the crowdfunding website Indiegogo over the past month, ProSounds President and Innovator Weston Harris has announced the extension of their crowdfunding campaign – and the discounted pricing for the H2P – through August 22.
"Our goal was to raise $25,000 for the H2P, but the response from consumers shows there’s a real need for an affordable, reliable hearing device for the 48 million in the U.S. who have some degree of hearing loss,” Harris said. “In addition to enhancing hearing for those who already suffer with hearing loss, the H2P can help thousands of people who work in noisy, loud settings like factories or airport tarmacs, and even musicians and auto racing pit crews, better protect their ears and hearing capability in the future.”
According to the Hearing Loss Association of America, about 60 percent of the people with hearing loss are either in the work force or in educational settings – with one-in-three people in the U.S. suffering with some degree of hearing loss by age 65.
Axil, which has produced hearing protection devices exclusively for hunters through its SportEar Brand for many years, has brought that technology to the consumer market with the ProSounds H2P – a high-performance hearing device for people in construction, motorsports and other loud work settings. While the standard hearing aid can cost $2,000 or more, the new H2P can help people improve and protect their hearing by as much as six-times for less than $300 during the crowdfunding campaign.
H2P protects the inner ear by automatically blocking out any noise exceeding 85 decibels, with various foam and silicone tips that can be used to reduce the damaging levels of noise by up to 30 decibels. Even with protective tips and digital noise reduction, H2P’s digitally-enhanced, high-fidelity surround sound ensures conversations and other useful noises can be heard easily. By combining the latest technology in an earbud that’s less than a quarter-inch thick, the H2P provides users with total comfort, performance and complete control of their level of hearing enhancement and protection in any situation.
The H2P fits snugly in the concha or "bowl “of the external ear, with the tip sealing the ear canal. They come with three unique tips: foam, silicone and tulip tips. The foam tips offer maximum levels of hearing protection, and the silicone tips offer superior comfort.
For people who are concerned with only sound enhancement, the tulip tips are designed to fit in the ear canal without sealing it completely – which leaves the ear open to receive natural sound while H2P digitally enhances sounds that are out of range of the user’s natural hearing level. The tulip tip is exclusively for sound enhancement and does not provide hearing protection.
Additional features include:
● 100 percent Lynx Digital Ear, which can boost hearing up to six times normal levels
● Digital Compression Hearing Protection of any noise exceeding 85 decibels
● 30 decibel noise-reducing foam tips
● Silicone tips rated for 24 decibel noise reduction
● Tulip Tips for total hearing enhancement
● A sleek design that is virtually invisible when worn properly
Since H2P has already surpassed it’s $100,000 ‘stretch-goal,’ Harris says all crowdfunding backers will also receive a free H2P carrying pouch with their order when shipping begins in November.
With the campaign extension, the ProSounds H2P is available on Indiegogo with early-bird pricing starting at $299 -- $200 off the suggested retail price. For more information, and to preorder ProSounds H2P, visit Indiegogo.
