IPEVO “Open Guided” Headphones

IPEVO  announced the launch of its newest product, Open Stereo Earphones. This headset device is designed with Open Guided Sound, or OGS technology, an alternative to traditional earphones which are inserted into the ear like a plug. Open Stereo Earphones sit at the end of a flexible ear hook and rest outside the ear. This design results in less pressure on the ear canal, and it allows the ear to process incoming sound in a more natural way.

While traditional ear plug earphones resonate directly inside the ear canal, creating sometimes intense pressure on the inner portions of the ear, Open Stereo Earphones guide sounds to the auricle (or pinna), the outside portion of the ear. This design results in less pressure on the ear canal, and it allows the ear to process incoming sound in a more natural way. Sound from OGS earphones has been described as more realistic, more clear, and more natural than corresponding ear plug earphones.

Because there is less direct pressure on the ear canal, there is less hearing fatigue and none of the physical discomfort that comes from ear plugs, and thus Open Stereo Earphones can be worn for extended periods. As a result of this reduction in direct sound pressure, Open Stereo Earphones is compliant with European Standard EN50332-2 for headphones which meet safe sound pressure limits. Also, due to the earphones' "non-occluding" open fit structure, sounds in the surrounding environment can be perceived in addition to sound emitted through the earphones, which may be desirable in social or business settings. It is also ideal for safety reasons, lowering the possibility of accidents involving pedestrians and cyclists being unaware of danger around them while indulged in music.

An in-line microphone allows Open Stereo Earphones to be used as a headset for phone conversations. This in-line unit can adjust volume with a slider, and it also functions as a click-based control for picking up calls, hanging up, playing and pausing music, and navigating music tracks. Open Stereo Earphones are compatible Apple iPhone 3G, 3GS and iPhone4s, the latest generations of iPod Touch, iPod Nano, and iPod Shuffle, and many other popular smartphones and MP3 players.

IPEVO's Open Stereo Earphones will be released in mid-September, and will be available exclusively through the company's online store at http://www.ipevo.com, at a price of $29.97
