Noise-reduction earbuds

Hearing Components, a supplier of noise-reduction technology and products to the hearing aid, military, aviation and manufacturing markets, is now offering noise-reducing earbuds for everyone.

Comply NR-10 earbuds use the same patented passive noise-blocking technology the company supplies to military helicopter crews. They reduce noise an average of 48dB, and are said to block more noise than the leading active noise cancellation earphones.

Frequency response is said to be 20Hz to 20,000Hz (no stated plus or minus decibel figure). It has a 43-inch cord with a 3.5mm gold-plated stereo plug and integrated volume control and foam tips made of “ultra-soft memory foam which conforms to the user's ear canal," according to the company.

The Comply NR-10 has a suggested retail price of $79.95. The buds come with a pair of slim-size Comply foam tips, a pair of standard-size Comply foam tips and a travel pouch. Replacement foam tips are also available.

The company also offers Whoomp!™ Earbud Enhancers to stop the escape of bass frequencies from conventional earbuds.
