For high-end audiophiles and people who crave both fashion and fidelity in their earbuds, HearNotes has brought you a solution. It is actually the most elegant solution we’ve seen in quite a while. No more bulky, blocky over the ear headphones, no more wires to get tangled or broken, HearNotes breaks the paradigm.
Health Tech Weekly host Jamie Davis, the Podmedic got the chance to stop by the HearNotes booth while at CES2015 to chat with founder and CEO Patrick Donohue about the genesis of the product and the key design features that set these earbuds apart from the pack. From the packaging and charging box to the innovative and exiting design, we think the HearNotes earbuds will be the next big thing in audio later this spring when they’re released!

Kyle Kirkpatrick from Decibullz.com joined Jamie Davis, the Podmedic and Chris Montera, the Geekymedic on their Tech Podcast Network LIVE coverage from the International CES conference in Las Vegas. On the final day, Jamie and Chris were excited to check out the custom-molded in-ear earbuds from Decibullz. You mold them and create them at home using your microwave oven.
The brand new Decibullz Contour earbuds are turning heads, literally, at CES 2014. This is the newest version of their popular earphone. This new earphone is the best earphone they have ever created, with better sound, better seal, and better fit. Plus, they are even easier to mold! This new design makes it easier than ever for users to create a perfect fitting and great sounding earphone. The team at Decibullz has combined their customized molding material with a specially selected silicone tip. The soft tip aligns the earphone in the ear canal and creates a comfortable sound-isolating seal. The tip works in conjunction with the molding material that conforms to the concha (bowl part of the ear) to keep the earphone secure and comfortable.
If you have earbud style headphones, it’s a sure thing that they spend a lot of time tangled up in gym bag, briefcase or purse. Digital Innovations introduced us to a patented earbud winder / carry case that protects the headphones and keeps them available and untangled for immediate retrieval. The holder is made out of soft and pliable silicone material with a rubbery feel that makes it easy to wind the headphone cords and stow the actual earbuds in the interior. Extracting them tangle free is available with a single pull. Price class $10 from Digital Innovations, Inc. TPN Interview by Andy McCaskey, SDRNews and Daniel J. Lewis, The Audacity To Podcast.
In any speaker system, the last thing that you need is something that introduces distortion into the system at just the instant that you want the purest sound into your ears. Traditional systems attempt to compensate for poor match between amplifier and speaker with crossover networks or active processing. ClarityOne Audio’s new system insures that the harmonics that give music its richness come through the system The net result is a set of earbuds that produce pure, clean,undistorted sound from your phone, mp3, iPod and audio book so you hear everything other earphones leave behind.
Interview by Andy McCaskey and Courtney Wallin of SDRNews for the TechPodcast Network.
As a musician and a Podcaster, I know how getting earbuds that kill exterior sound can help. Not only to cancel out other sounds, but save your ears from harmful noises (if you control the volume). That is where Sonomax eers come in.
They create do it yourself custom molds.
There are two types of kits – a single driver and a dual driver earbud ( separating Bass and Treble). You put the kit in your ears, pop the tops, wait four minutes and voila! You have a custom set of earphones.
These earphones will cut down the decibel level significantly. Therefore, if you are doing something in a noisy area, these earbuds will protect.
I have yet to try them out while drumming, but I can tell you they are perfect when I had to go outside to shovel the blizzard we had. I could focus on the task and not be distracted by anything else.
Prices only start at $199. Custom ear molds from the doctor’s office cost $1000 – $2000. Therefore, this is a pretty good deal.
Todd and Tom tune into Patrick and Dean from PureSound Technology, Inc, who talk about their patented PureSound processor that will shortly be launched within their ClarityOne earbuds. Because of the processor, the earbuds can use 8 ohm impedance rather than the more usual 16 or 32 ohms, giving greater clarity and less distortion.
The range will be extended later in the year with over the ear models for professional studio use.
Available late February /early March for $140 with a 15% pre-registration discount and iTunes gift card for the first 500 orders.
