Product Description

EQ Seals are ear plugs with an innovative design that allows the wearer to maintain their hearing and balance capabilities while offering top notch protection from the elements. Developed under medical supervision by ENT surgeons and engineers - this product received the EUROSIMA Technological award in 2010.

Why do we need to wear Earplugs

The growing number of outdoor sports participants (surf, ski, bike, swimming, running) in challenging conditions has resulted in an increase of ears’ pathologies in numerous regions of the world.

A growing number of exostosis pathologies

Exostosis is one of the main pathology. Exostosis generates an excessive growth of the bone in the auditory canal, resulting in the loss of hearing and can lead to deafness in the worst cases. In addition, the bone growth allows waste and bacteria to sit in the canal, which in turn increases the case of ear infections.

A study conducted by surgeons

A study conducted by surgeons in the South West of France in 2010 concluded that there was no protective equipment that addressed the specific needs of water sports participants wishing to prevent it, in particular in terms of hearing, balance and fit. Surgery is the only solution to address exostosis once it is installed. There are also evident risks of bone re- growth when no protection is worn afterwards.

Innovation for well-being improvement

In collaboration with engineers, the surgeons developed an ear plugs to prevent from those ears’ pathologies. Using an innovative design made of flexible medical silicone, EQ ear plugs has a breathable Sympatex® membrane, which allows the circulation of air in the ear, and therefore maintaining hearing and balance.

Protection from Wind - Water - Cold - Pollution

 

EQ Seals are a revolutionary ear water protection device that through ground breaking technological is the first in its field to offer protection, comfort and reliability while in the water. Offers complete ear canal water sealing with truly unmatched surrounding sound transmission and easy application, blowing existing plugs out of the water and reinventing ear protection for the 21st Century.

Technical Features

Comfort: The cutting edge technology behind the development of the pure silicone part of the ear plug thrusts EQ Seals to the forefront of its field with its spine (ergonomic and durable) being specifically shaped to adapt to sensitive skin and ensure easy insertion and a softer feel against the wall of the ear canal.The material used is completely hypoallergenic, chlorine-proof, salt-water-proof, and water repellent. In a nutshell, the EQ Seals are suitable for the entire wide range of water sports: swimming, windsurfing, surfing, kiteboarding, and kayaking among others... Another innovation from Sorkuntza is the design and the internal physical structure of the protection, technologically conceived to limit pressure around the wall of the ear duct (meatus). Once inserted the EQ Seals become one with you inner ear. At last an end to the discomfort and pain of clogged ears and eardrum compression.

EQ Seals Watertight Sealing System: The sheer performance and perfect ear adaptability can be explained by simply following the laws of physics. The cup and its additional rib ensure effective sealing.

Secure Fit: The EQ Seals are unlike any other ear plug on the market, once inserted into the ear canal, remains in place. This is largely thanks to our addition of patented hardener on the removal tab to preventing the plug from turning or twisting during movement or in action. The cup and its rib ensure a secure fit every time.

Hearing Ability: The EQ Seals utilizes the natural outer ear (pinna) for clear and concise sound wave transmission thanks to the streamlined efficient protection shape. The EQ Seals are a breathing ear protection device greatly thanks to the quality design standards of the membrane and its frame guaranteeing the plug fits perfectly in the ear canal any time, every time. (The EQ Seals is a breathing ear protection device greatly thanks to the quality design standards of the membrane and silicone ear plug guaranteeing that the EQ Seals fits perfectly in the ear canal any time, every time.) A major breakthrough in the prevention against discomfort and ear clogging for professional and leisure watersport enthusiasts alike!

Cutting Edge Technology: The EQ Seals ear protection is a solution which provides access to technology. Its design meets the quality standards and excellence requirements of the French Based Research and Development Medical and Technological Service of “Sport Contrôle” Institute.

Silicone: EQ Seals is made of silicone which is injection-moulded in a laboratory environment and manufactured using translucent LSR-type silicone and cold press moulding technology for greater precision. Design: The EQ Seals design was developed using aerospace design tools, leading industrial ergonomics and creativity methods used in advanced technologies. These have been used to great effect to protect the sensitive cartilaginous part of the ear. This enables children and adults alike to continue enjoying a multitude of sporting and leisure activities.) The guaranteed watertight SORKY seal and design enables this with unparalleled success.

Membrane: This unique innovative technical feature provides extremely accurate acoustic results and allows continuous breathing of the inner ear and retention of solid or liquid particles. These innovations allow the auditory system’s hearing and proprioceptive abilities to function normally so that the user maintains natural contact with his surroundings. This membrane also allows the equalization of pressure build-up due to its microporous structure. At the same time it enables immersion up to 3m depth during 1 minute.
