It has been awhile since I have posted, but I am so thrilled with a new set of headphones (earbuds) that I wanted to share it with others. As a baby boomers I grew up on music. I played in a rock band in high school, was a radio announcer for years with my headphones loud, and also did concert promotions, loving the large, loud sound without earplugs. Needless to say, I wear hearing aids today. While I now lead an international children’s organization, I still do audio production and voice work from time-to-time. I’ve had an expensive set of Ultimate Ears custom fit in-ear phones and they are awesome - as long as I play them through an EQ app, like EQ 10 or the N7 player. But, watching video or movies on my phone or iPad is less than desirable, and I had put away my iPod Nanos that I loved because there is no suitable EQ in them.
I saw a review for Even earphones and ordered a set for $99. To set them up, you run through a 2 minute audiogram-like process that takes 8 measurements in each ear. The frequency range is much wider than that for hearing aids. When I finished and started using them, I was amazed. The clarity was incredible. The adjustment is locked into the headphones until you re-run the set-up. That means it is device independent. I pulled out my little Nanos and there was new life in them. I watched a movie and You-Tube videos and the voice clarity and sound was excellent. The phones require a charge that lasts about 9 hours, so you will have to keep them charged. But, no longer do I need an EQ program, and listening to audio on different devices - or watching video is a vastly improved experience. The clarity is pretty incredible.
I don’t promote products, but as someone who is hearing impaired, this is a Godsend. I emailed the company and they are working on regular on-the-ear headphones and Bluetooth headphones as well. I thought others in my situation might appreciate knowing there is a new answer to headphones out there. The web site is geteven.co. If this interests you I would check it out. I’d also love to hear from you if you use them. We’re in a new day for listening. Hear well!
