Some Notes On Sound Quality: Safety First!
We want to briefly touch on the audio experience you get with earHero Sports earphones; as this is often the most common reason for a guarantee enquiry.
The speakers used in earHero Sport earphones are balanced armature speakers, which are also found in high end earbuds like Shure and retail for as much as $1000 (only 3-4 companies in the world make this level of speaker quality.)
The difference between earHero Sports and traditional earphones obviously the safety factor. Where all other high-end earbuds seal off your ear canal, earHero Sports earphones do not. This is essential and necessary to allow ambient noise to pass over the unique design + shape of our speaker.
Allowing ambient noise into your ear canal is what allows you to hear everything going on around you and keeps you safe.
This “lack of seal” design feature does lead to some “bleeding out” or loss of sound, particularly at the bass end of the spectrum. This leads to the slightly higher pitched, less bass driven sound than studio-style traditional binaural headsets – but it is designed that way for a reason.
It’s important you don’t use earHero Sports earphones expecting studio level sound reproduction, as it’s just not possible without sealing the ear canal; and thus sealing off any ambient noise such as cars, bike, children etc.
By using Balanced Amature speakers in earHero Sports, you get the best sound quality possible in a set of earphones specifically designed with your safety as the priority!
