earHero earphones allows you to enjoy music and outside world simultaneously

I have seen my fair share of paradigm shifts over the years, for starters, everyone did not mind driving fuel guzzlers in the past as they were some sort of status symbol, not to mention low fuel prices helped in the situation as well. However, over time, we have gotten more and more environmentally friendly, which has led to a change in vehicles and driving habits – smaller, more fuel efficient engines are now the way to go, in addition to hybrid vehicles that offer more bang for your buck in terms of mileage than ever before. As for headphones, we have also seen a shift, as we get more and more personal when we want to be “removed” from the world around us, so to speak, via noise isolation technology. However, this has also paved the way for a far more individualistic world, and sometimes, joggers or cyclists who are too immersed in whatever they are doing fail to hear the horn of a vehicle behind them, and hence, a tragic accident occurs. This has led to some enterprising folks come up with the earHero earphones that will not only allow you to listen to your favorite tunes, but also allows you to hear what is going on in the outside world simultaneously. This is made possible as the earHero earphones does not block the entire ear canal, so that you still can hear what is going on around you. No longer do you need to be a running or cycling liability the next time you take to the road in your jogging shoes or on your bicycle, as long as you wear the earHero earphones, you will be able to get a handle of what is going on around. You can choose from the earHerosport, or the earHeropro which is stealthier, targeting security personnel. Regardless, they retail for $149 a pop. Source]]>
