The ZenPlugs ZenPods Moulded Earphones System gives you comfortable moulded earphones from a kit. You can make them at home in only a few minutes. They were developed because of the problems people have with earbuds.
Because they tend to be hard and round people find them uncomfortable and difficult to wear. The ear canal tends to be oval, rather than round so users have to press the buds in sideways to keep them in. This leads to pain and pressure points on the skin. After an hour or two of use the discomfort can become unbearable.
In addition to this they did not stay in the ears as well as coming out often whilst exercising. This is due to the minimal amount of surface area in contact between the earbuds and the users' ear. Because the ZenPods are molded to the ears the contact area is maximised. This keeps the earbuds in the ears and maximises comfort by spreading the pressure from the earphone over a larger area of skin. The products cleverly also incorporate Steritouch. This is a powerful antibacterial and antifungal agent. It has been proven to destroy pseudomonas, staphylococcus aureus and MRSA.
This gives you confidence against the development of infections. These can often occur in those who use earphones on a regular basis due to the introduction of bacteria from the environment into the ears. In addition to this the regular placement of earphones into the ears creates a warm and humid atmosphere which promotes the growth of the bugs.
It is possible that battery life may be improved as iPods and other MP3 platers can be played at lower volume. This is because the pods reduce sound leakage and so channel more of the sound into the ears, improving volume and range. This also reduces bystander irritation.
