EOps NOISEZERO i+ in-ear headphones with Remote/Mic for iPod, iPhone, iPad

Designed by Michael Young

The World’s First Cornstarch Ear-buds

The EOps Noisezero i+ Eco edition uses revolutionary eco-friendly cornstarch bio-plastics for the ear-buds and the microphone housing. In our design process, we found that by using cornstarch bio-plastics to build the ear-buds acoustics chamber, natural feeling mid tone can be achieved.

The unique horn shaped ear-buds chamber optimized acoustics performance for brilliant treble and the extra large bass reflect port at the back provides super strong bass whilst celebrating these as design features.

The form factor of the ear buds was also designed to assist the ease of positioning and passive noise isolation.

The user can hold the slim part of the ear buds when inserting the silicone ear tips into the ear canal, and then rotate the ear buds 90 degrees such that the silicone ear tips can achieve good acoustic seal in the ear canals for best audio results.

The microphone and remote module on the headphones cable is an Apple-approved three-button version, letting you control playback as well as volume level for the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad, and recent iPod. The EOps Noisezero i+ Eco edition comes in colors of charcoal, rustic brown, midnight blue and sage green. A carrying case is included in the pack.
