Volume Plug / headphone accessory

Volume Plug
Volume Plug

Wherever you go and whatever you connect, you can keep your customized volume level.

There is no fixed volume-standard depending on devices which is a cause of loud sound experience. A long-term exposure to short periods of this loud noise can produce hearing loss later.

People tend to raise volume to over the ambient noise. Listening to music in different noise levels can also cause hearing loss.

Volume Plug dectects ambient noise and keeps customized ‘safe’ volume apart from different devices and places. By applying its application, it monitors user’s volume change and offers guidelines for safe listening and ear health.
