Purebuds earbuds use Reverse Sound Technology to save your ears

I rarely use earbuds with my iPod because, among other reasons, I'm afraid they'll do damage to my hearing, which, I suspect, isn't that great to begin with (I can never hear my cell phone ringing unless it's set at the highest volume). I also don't enjoy being totally cut off from my surroundings (it's a dangerous world, even inside my own house), so when I do use them, I keep the sound at a very low volume, like an old lady.

Purebuds from Amazing Tech Products promises a different kind of listening experience. These earbuds use Reverse Sound Technology, which reduces discomfort and potential damage to eardrums by, among other design elements, placement of the speaker unit facing opposite the ear so that there is no direct impact to the eardrum.

The design creates a natural surround effect, and the three earbud tips that come with the Purebuds create different audio ambiance effects (surround sound, bass boost, and full range).

The other benefit of this design is that you can still hear surrounding sounds (sirens, your cell phone, the doorbell, the dog barking, the guy at the gym telling you that you've exceeded your time limit on the treadmill).

They're $49 at Amazing Tech Products and Amazon.
