Acoustibuds for earphones
Burton Ideas has launched Acoustibuds, an earphone attachment that is designed to enhance the sound of earphones and help make them fit more comfortably. Acoustibuds attatch to the speaker side of earphones and are shaped like little cones with flexible fins on the outside. The cone like shape places the earphone deeper into a person's ear and allows for sound to be funneled more directly into the eardrum, while the flexible fins help with comfort and keeping the earphones in place.
Using Acoustibuds enables users to hear there music louder on low volume settings by providing megaphone like amplification, and to help keep the outside noise to a minimum.
Burton Ideas has also released a cord management clip called Acoustigrip, created to help users keep their headphone wires either attached together or to a piece of clothing. Both earphone accessories can be found on the Acoustibuds website and are temporarily priced at $6 for the Acoustigrip and $13 for the Acoustibuds. When the introductory deal is over, the Acoustigrip will cost $11 while Acoustibuds are priced at $20.
