If you would like to enjoy a more silence while travelling and block out those annoying noises such as aeroplane hum, conversations or crying children, then a new “acoustic adjustable hearing solution” called Knops might be worth more investigation.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the new wearable audio noise reducing earphones that are equipped with their very own adjustable volume control, enabling you to tailor exactly what you hear and don’t.
The team behind Knops are based in Amsterdam and explain a little more about their inspiration and design.
What if you could adjust the volume of life itself? No more flights filled with crying babies. No more risk of your ears falling off at that concert. No more loud neighbours. Only the sounds you like to hear, when you want to hear them. Sounds good? Well, hear us out. Double pun. Super intented.
You’ve got our attention. But no more puns, please. Agreed. We are talking about Knops; the volume button for your ears. This acoustic hearing solution will give you full control over the surrounding sounds you hear. All day every day.
How do Knops work exactly? Well, it’s actually pretty darn simple. Each pair of Knops has four steps. Adjust the Knops to step one and you will hear what you would’ve heard without plugs. But the real kicker enters the stage when you switch to the other three steps. Step 2 will reduce the volume to filter the noise of a vibrant city, step 3 will adjust the volume to a live music setting and step 4 will create a silent environment ideal for work. Four different modes for basically every audio situation.
