TOPlay Earphones. Suspended by a magnetic clip just outside your ear canal, this innovative headphone set promises to safeguard your hearing while still delivering the kind of audio that your brain longs for. They weigh a mere 8g too, which means that the comfort ratio should be right up there with large heavy fake gold earrings. Anyhoo, the audio pressure on the ear drum is reduced 30 fold, which sure sounds reassuring, so colour us impressed. £19.95.
TOPlay is twice as safe: Attached to the ear lobe by a magnetic clip, the TOPlay goes easy on your hearing. Nothing is inserted into the auditory canal and the audio pressure is reduced 30 fold. And you can hear important environmental sounds: Announcements at the airport and railway station, warning signals on the road, … and you can talk even while you’re listening to music. And just like In-Ear-phones, fellow travellers are not inconvenienced. Perfect when driving a car or riding a bike, in the train or on an airplane.
