Knops is the volume button for your ears. This acoustic hearing solution will give you full control over the surrounding sounds you hear. All day every day.

How do Knops work?

Well, it’s actually pretty darn simple. Each pair of Knops has four steps. Adjust the Knops to step one and you will hear what you would’ve heard without plugs. But the real kicker enters the stage when you switch to the other three steps. Step 2 will reduce the volume to filter the noise of a vibrant city, step 3 will adjust the volume to a live music setting and step 4 will create a silent environment ideal for work. Four different modes for basically every audio situation.

But what if I’m moving around from a busy city to a live concert and back, after which I’m in desperate need of some Zen-like silence?

Aren’t you the busy bee. No worries. Just easily switch steps using the knob on the side of the Knops. And if you like, you can instantly open up to talk to people. Say goodbye to continuous plugging and unplugging situations. Which immediately reduces the risk of losing your precious earbuds. Knops are also engineered to wear in different situations so you won’t have to worry about the buds falling out of your ears. Win win, baby.

What about the design

We based the design of Knops on a classic round volume button, with inside the shape of a gramophone cone, showing the link with volume and sound. This design in high-quality materials in combination with the option of various colors and trims makes Knops an accessory item which fits your personal style.

How does it work EXACTLY?

Like technically and stuff? Well, first of all Knops uses no electronics, no apps and no batteries. Instead our earbuds are acoustically engineered. The real sound is filtered using good old physics. With the help of computer simulations and real-world prototypes tested in acoustic labs, we tuned Knops. We spend a lot of time fine-tuning the sound, so we can provide the best quality sound at every volume level. Working with the natural response of the ear canal. We even managed to create a similar reduction in dB across all the frequencies. Creating a very flat response curve. This means that sound travels through all the four steps with minimal distortion. We are mimicking the natural resonances of the human ear. So crystal clear sounds, vibrant and natural.
