Pumping earphone

Pumping earphone was devised from an idea to overcome the problems the existing earphones have. The ear sizes of earphone users vary but the existing earphones are produced in one size only. Thus, when people use them, there are many cases of having the earphones get fallen off from their ears. Additionally, when carrying their earphones in bags or pockets, it is easy for the earphones to get dusty and have scratches. People are always using these damaged earphones having them touched to their skin. To overcome these problems, a new earphone was created by substituting a balloon structure to the cap part of the earphone.
