BUDFITS, A SECURE AND COMFORTABLE WAY TO WEAR EARBUDS.

If you use Apple™ earbuds for listening to your ipod™, or iPhone™ you know the discomfort one can experience wearing them. Earbuds are made from a hard plastic that is wedged into your ear canal. The Budfit is a simple plastic molded device that fits around the rear of the ears. The earbud’s wire slips into a cutout in the mold and the physical earbud slips into the top end. You place the Budfit behind your ears so that the earbud hangs in front of the ear canal opening. You’ll still experience all the fidelity of sounds generated by the earbud with none of the discomfort even though there is a bit of space between you and the earbud. Ambient noise is kept to a minimum, however someone speaking to you, providing the volume is set to a normal listening level, can still be heard.
I’ve tested the Budfits while walking in 35 – 40 mile per hour wind gusts along Florida’s Intercoastal Waterway and had no problem keeping them in position on my ears. Thus, they are great when running, skateboarding or any other fast moving activity. A neat, simple invention that deserves a try. I give them a thumbs up.
Budfits were invented by Innovelis and are only compatible with iPod™ and iPhone™ branded earbuds. They are available at many retailers nationwide, or on line at www.budfits.com.
