The “Plugfone Liberate” is an amazing gadget that not only will protect your ear drums from sound damage but also connect you with the outside world using its top-notch Bluetooth 4.0. Created by Shaun Knudsen, The Plugfone Liberate can now be pre-ordered on their Kickstarter campaign.
If you’re in the gym, on a crowded subway, or you’ve been #blessed with a snoring partner, Plugfone will keep the world around you quiet.
Noise-isolating earbuds are far from novel, but the Plugfones Liberate flips a common equation on its proverbial ear: they’ve engineered a product that’s earplug first, earbud second. Building on what they’ve learned for the past 6 years producing WIRED Plugfones, they’ve SEVERED the cable with Plugfones Liberate.
These Bluetooth 4.0 earplugs offer the same top-notch aural quality as the wired Plugfones, but without the hassle of a 3.5mm connector.
Each Liberate headset has a Bluetooth 4.0 antenna, a fully sweatproof design, a noise-reducing inline microphone for voice calls, ruggedized play/pause, volume up, and volume down buttons, song progression buttons, and a water resistant USB charging connector. You can expect the battery to last 8 hours on a full charge, enabling you to easily get through extended shifts without having to source power.
