Hearing Safety

InAir Technology is a more safe way to enjoy music

The ear is made up of three parts: the outer, middle and inner ear. The outer ear filters and passes sound waves to the middle ear where they cause the ear drum to vibrate. The vibrations pass through three tiny bones called the ossicles. Then the vibrations are passed to the inner ears’ oval window and cochlea where tiny hair cells convert them into nerve impulses that the brain interprets as sound. Noise induced hearing loss is caused when theses tiny hair cells are damaged. InAir has patent pending technology that delivers sound to the outer ear so the three parts of the ear can work naturally. All other headphone and earphone designs bypass the natural filtering mechanism of the outer ear.
