DRAPER, Utah, April 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- A noisy racetrack, a loud concert or a day of motorcycling can leave you with ringing ears and permanent hearing damage. But traditional hearing protection options are bulky, inconvenient or unattractive. AXIL, known for its in-ear product innovations, solves those problems with its new XP Defender and XP Reactor earplugs and has launched a crowdfunding campaign on the Kickstarter platform with options for the mainstream market to grab the state-of-the-art hearing protection at a great price (starting at just $19 a pair).
According to the Center for Hearing and Communication, 48 million Americans suffer from significant hearing loss. While some are born with conditions that affect their hearing, most hearing loss is caused by exposure to loud noise. Just 15 minutes a day of exposure to over 85 decibels can cause permanent hearing loss. That's why hearing protection is such an important health concern.
The XP Reactor earplugs have reactive, interchangeable filters that block damaging noise while letting you hear frequencies for more normal hearing around you. (Kickstarter price $19.00 per pair)
The XP Defender opens and closes simply with the push of a button. This lets you instantly switch between hearing and protecting. (Kickstarter price $19.00 per pair)
AXIL has run three successful crowdfunding campaigns in the past and this new campaign, appeals to the mainstream market both in price point and purpose. The company also hopes to appeal to those who work or study in busy environments and want to use earplugs to improve concentration.
What makes these earplugs distinctive it that they are non-electronic and allow a certain range of sound in, but then automatically, and mechanically, they are able to react to louder sounds and dampen them automatically, a feature normally only found in expensive, electronic protection. There are no moving parts, the attenuation is a result of the acoustic design.
