Adjustable Ear Plugs With Four Levels Of Noise Control

April 26, 2017

This is the Kickstarter for Knops, a pair of ear plugs that allow you to adjust the amount of noise you hear. The plugs' outer rim can be turned to allow for four different levels of use: clear sound (no dampening), city noise, live music, and total isolation. Obviously, I'm a total isolation guy myself, but that's just me, and, like they say: no noise is good noise. "It's news, not noise." Whatever, I had my earbuds in. You can get a pair of the already-funded Knops for $62, which should ship this November. Alternatively, just cover your ears with your hands all the time like a normal person. "That's not what normal people do." I CAN'T HEAR YOU. "Take your hands off your ears." I can't, I glued them there. "Then how did you just hear me?" I read your lips. Now I'm reading your mind. "What am I thinking?" GW can't read minds! "Impressive." Thanks, it's a gift. Just kidding it's a curse everybody hates me and thinks I'm ugly and I know it.

Keep going for their Kickstarter video.

Thanks to Vicky, who agrees covering your ears with layers of duct tape is another low-cost solution.

    Oh cool, I already own these. They're called ear buds.

    Adding a bulky outer part is a great idea.
    This might just have enough leverage to fall out on its own.
    But hey, it's three times as expensive as the plugs I'm using at the moment, so it's sure to be THREE TIMES AS GOOD!

    I find earplugs totally uncomfortable so this is not for me.

    Kickstarter is where money goes to die. I've given up on "investing" in anything on there.

  • Jenness

    I agree! I've either been unimpressed with what I got, or twice (thankfully very small funds) they were funded but still haven't fulfilled and one was around $30 back in 2012. It's a risk like anything. Something are cool but I would not fund anyone outside the US now because both unfulfilled backs I did were non-US creators and Kickstarter has zero liability, once funded all money goes right to the creators and you can only deal with them.

    they look like gauge piercings gone wrong...

    Pfft, for $62 and looking conspicuous as shit, they should've at least made it look like Lobot's gear https://mikescollection.fil... instead of dual Uhura's https://s-media-cache-ak0.p... .
