Techstination feature for Wednesday, March 6, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.       Live music is great….but I know first hand what it can do your hearing…for hours…days….or in some cases permanently.    A company called Loop has engineered earplugs that allow you to enjoy music…while protecting your hearing.  Our testing has found Loop to be comfortable, stylish and most important of all…effective.   Marketing head Ellen Kruijzen …

“Loop is developed in collaboration with Dynamic Ear Company.   They are a spinoff of the University of Delft in the Netherlands. And they also design filters and acoustic channels.  So together with them we created Loop, we created the acoustic channel and also Loop’s filter.”

The result is a reduction in volume of about 20 decibels.   And the earplugs are 3D printed.   You can find more info at www.loopearplugs.com.
