I love riding my bike around the lake listening to some motivational tunes from Mickey Avalon and 2ne1 on my Yamaha ear buds. The problem is, all I can hear is Mickey Avalon and 2ne1, and even thought that’s pretty cool, it creates a certain lack of ambient awareness. I mean, the entire world is blocked off and all I am hearing is Mickey Avalon. I am not hearing people honking at me, hot chicks calling out for me, and some dude yelling “Yo buddy is that really Mickey Avalon?!”. Who knows how much social content I am missing out on… To solve my lack of ambient awareness, while in the depths of the Avalonian groove, I discovered the alternative ear bud attachments called the Airbudz from SafeSound. Read on for details about the Airbudz earbud attachments after the break.
The Airbudz replace the standard ear bud attachments with the specially designed ones that have air channels allowing me to be aware of my surroundings. I can still hear my tunes just fine, but if someone honks their horn I will hear them, if someone is cocking a shotgun while I am riding by I will hear it, and if some rabid dog is chasing me – I will hear that too. This is potentially life saving stuff folks! So to recap, the Airbudz fit on different ear buds, replacing the standard solid sound blocking cups with the specially designed air grooved ones that allow some ambient sounds to pass through making for a safer listening environment. They come in 3 different sizes and Fifty Shades of Grey!!! Well, not really, but they do come in a variety of colors ranging from patriotic to jewel tone to monochrome to neon to glow in the dark! Enjoy Responsibly!
