Balloons for your Ears?

asius-inflatable-headphones

Ears buds, you’ve heard me on my soapbox about the inherent danger of sticking these things in your ears and blowing out your hearing.  Apparently, Stephen Ambrose, a pioneer in audio technology and founder of Asius Technologies has an alternative solution to ear buds that I find intriguing.  I call them balloons for your ears, he calls them inflatable ear buds and they may be coming soon to an Apple store near you.  I’ll reserve comment until I test them personally, and deliberate the advantages and disadvantages with my audiophile and audiologist friends. This includes you Seth Horowitz and Jay Lucker! Perhaps Stephen Ambrose will send me a pair to review?  For now, you might be interested to read more on this innovation on Mashable.

Tell me, would you be comfortable with inflatable airbags in your ears?
