Turn it down or not?

17 Nov

Dubs Acoustic Filters by Doppler LabsHave you ever been in one of those situations?
. You go to a soccer game and you are lucky enough to be seated next to a very loud fan (shouting his lungs out in your ears during the entire game)?
. You go to a very loud concert and come back home with ears pain and headache?
. You are working on a super important file at work and you need total concentration but your colleagues around you are making as much noise as a bees hive at peak time?
. You want to sleep on the plane but it’s so loud in there that you can’t?

All those situations have the noise level in common.
So what can we do to tune it down ?

So far you could use regular earplugs, but you look like a grandpa when using it and you don’t hear anything around you anymore … You are deaf.
We have the DrDre headphones on, but here goes the concentration … or you can switch to the brand new DUBS Acoustic Filters by Doppler Labs

I just received my DUBS and I’m excited to test them out.

1. I’m on the plane back from sunny Florida, I’m tired and want to rest and sleep a bit, I put the DUBS in and crashed in a coma for the next 3 hours.

2. I’m back home at the office and I wear them to escape the ambient noise.

3. I’m in the metro and want to concentrate on writing this review, DUBS in and I start to write in peace.

4. I’m going to a party where the noise is loud and the people shout in your ears to cover the music and talk to me, DUBS in again.

The uses of these plugs are numerous, and, as me, you’ll find yours.

But what are the DUBS ?

The DUBS are protecting me from the noise around.
The DUBS Acoustic Filters use dynamic attenuation to reduce the overall volume while preserving sound fidelity, basically you can hear everything but with a decreased volume.
The noise reduction decreases by an average of 12dB.

What are the DUBS Acoustic Filters properties
. easy plugged and stay inside your ears (no right or left ears),
. light and extremely comfortable, so comfortable you simply forget them,
. small but technological with the 17 individual parts made of stainless steel, ABS, polymer foam and silicone.

I now carry my DUBS in their little box in my pocket and they go wherever I go.

The DUBS are as useful as they are cute.Β  You can even pick your colour between teal, blue, pink and white. I think I’ll get them all so I won’t forget them in my pair of jeans.
The price is very right and set on the fair price of $25.

#1,Β I hate carrying my keys in my pants pocket, it makes a big bulk and I don’t like it. Also the keys dig their hole and with time my jeans are ripped.
#2, I hate the rattling noise of my keys when I want to be discreet.
#3, the keys can scratch my iPhone screen and this I can’t allow!

For those reasons, I started to browse the net to chase the solution. And here it is: the Orbitkey!

The Orbitkey is an elegant tool that allows you to
. store up to 9 keys
. a usb stick (8Gb, add 10$)
. and even a bottle opener (add 5$)!

The Orbitkey comes in 2 styles:
. Premium Leather (plain black leather, black leather and tan stitching, plain tan, tan leather and white stitching)
. and Active Elastomer (aqua, pink or grey).
Premium Leather starts at 29AUD, the elastomer starts at 24 AUD.
Personally, I would go for the package Premium Leather Orbitkey + Active Elastomer band price at 43AUD and add the 8GB USB key.
