New Comply NR-10 earphones provide consumers with military-grade noise reduction
Military-grade noise reduction is now available to weary travelers and consumers alike thanks to Hearing Components’ Comply NR-10 High Tech Noise Reducing Earphones. Utilizing the same patented technology used by U.S. Army helicopter crews and Special Forces, the NR-10 earphones offer superior noise reduction by preventing outside noise from interfering with the audio experience.
Engineered to maximize bass response and deliver superior sound quality, the earphones are proven to deliver 48 decibels of noise reduction. This technology blocks out more noise than the leading active noise cancellation earphones. Unlike active “noise canceling” headphones, this passive noise reduction technology incorporated into the Comply NR-10 earphones does not require separate batteries.
“As a frequent traveler, I’m constantly bothered by the ambient noise on airplanes,” said Hearing Components President and CEO Dr. Robert Oliveira. “And as we worked with the National Institutes of Health to develop improved noise attenuation resulting in an increased signal-to-noise ratio for various audio listening devices, we realized that the same technology could help travelers like me. The NR-10 earphones virtually block out engine noise as well as other passengers. Now all I hear is pure music, even at low volumes.”
The noise reduction is a product of the patented Comply Foam Tips (P-Version) using ultra-soft memory foam which conforms to the user’s ear canal, providing amazing comfort and a secure in-ear fit.
Combining innovative technology and design, the Comply NR-10 earphones feature:
- Passive noise reduction at an average of 48dB or better
- A frequency range of 20Hz to 20,000 Hz
- Impedance of 16 Ohms
- A 43-inch cable with a 1/8 inch gold-plated stereo plug (3.5mm)
- Integrated volume control
- Comply Foam Tips (P-Version)
The Comply NR-10 earphones are available for purchase on Hearing Component’s Web site (http://www.complyfoam.com) for $79.95 plus shipping and handling. The earphones come with one pair of slim-size Comply Foam Tips, one pair of standard-size Comply Foam Tips and a deluxe travel pouch. Replacement foam tips are also available.
