#669: Songbungs

It’s pretty frustrating, when out for a run and plugged into my MP3 player, to have the earpieces constantly falling out. I guess I could pay for specially tailored devices, but let’s face it, I have big ears…several standard deviations away from the mean.

Today’s invention is therefore to reuse the established wine recorking technology indicated to create earbuds which actually mould to one’s ear canals and yet, unlike wax-based versions, are effectively reusable. I’m sure that in the absence eg of external windnoise, these would sound better too.

By supplying a range of different bung diameters (yellow), some could always be selected which, when squeezed, fitted an individual’s individual ears perfectly.
