Aperture Earphone / Earphone

Aperture Earphone

Many running and cycling enthusiasts love to listen to music when doing sports. However, considering the safety, only a few people wear earphone while doing sports. We designed one Sports Earphones with an aperture physical structure, which can control the permissible intake of external sound. It can be turned on by line-controlled hand operation, making it convenient for users to measure where sounds come from and guaranteeing the safety. It can also be turned on automatically when crossing the road via smartphone’s GPS to induce external sound, which is beneficial for decreasing the accident rate.
