Acoustibuds Earphone Adapters are small add-on thingies made of ‘hypoallergenic silicone rubber’ which help your earphones stay comfortably in your ear and deliver better sound quality. The secret is in the teeny fins which nestle inside your aural cavities. Or something. They’re also being marketed for active sporty types and apparently they do work, at least according to this off-the-cuff review.
I’ve got to say that my tiny ears have a lot of trouble with earphones falling out and slipping around, so this looks like a product I should definitely invest in. They come in packs of two sizes and cost $12.99. Interesting.
Acoustibuds is a novel earpiece fitting for earphones sold with iPods, iPhones and most MP3 players. Acoustibuds revitalizes these earphones to provide unparalleled retention, comfort, enriched acoustics and sound isolation. Stays in better: Acoustibuds use closely spaced flexible fins to stay in the ear more securely. The series of tall, soft and conformable fins flex in a manner that easily fit and retain to the ear. Even with perspiration and extreme physical activity, these fins continue to hold the earphone securely in place due to their unique profile and spacing.
