LR Earphones / Earphones

LR Earphones

People who listen to music through earphones have experienced difficulties to tell the difference between left and right. A pair of earphones often looks the same. The letters ‘L’ and ‘R’ are even small and obscure. It could be a laborious task to look for them if you encounter the situation like this a number of times a day. Music listeners have to look for the signs carefully. Embossed distinctive indicators (L and R) on the filters are easily perceived by various users and situations, for instance in the dark or for the people with visual impairment or low vision. ‘LR Earphones’ solves the small but big problems of our daily life.
