“Music is one of the tools that individuals use to stay focused, block out the world and propel themselves forward,” said Steve Trinter, director of sales and marketing for Hearing Components. “As athletes ourselves, we were fed up with earphones that continually fell out and developed Comply Sport as the solution.”
For users on the move, Comply Sport earphone tips deliver a custom stay-in-place fit, amazing all-day comfort and superior sound quality. The key to the fit is the body-heat activated memory foam which expands to fit the ear canal’s unique shape. The result is custom fit and remarkable in-ear retention so earphones remain snuggly in place even in the presence of moisture.
To help users protect their earphone investment, the Comply Sport Plus tips feature a sweat guard that prevents moisture from entering the earphones’ soundport. The SweatGuard™ technology incorporates an acoustically transparent filter that protects the earphone core from component corrosion and loss of sound quality caused by perspiration.
“As we see more technology integrated into the earbuds – from sensors to wireless receivers – the added weight will impact how well the earbuds stay in the ear,” explains Trinter. “Additionally, the moisture created by physical activity can seep into the earphone and cause corrosion and degradation of the electronic components. With Comply Sport Plus we’re protecting the performance of the equipment as well as the athletic experience.”
The Comply Sport and Sport Plus Earphone Tips can be purchased online at www.complyfoam.com and at major retailers in early 2015. Available in a two-pack, Sport tips are $6.95 and Sport Plus are $9.95.
