Knops. The Volume Button For Your Ears.
Knops is the first-ever hearing protector that is adjustable in different settings. Every setting enables you to filter out different kinds of noises. This means you can wear them travelling, at work, and, at a concert or in the club. But wait, there is more! Knops look beautiful, don’t require batteries or an app, and are a delight to wear!
How do Knops work?
Well, it’s actually pretty darn simple. Each pair of Knops has four steps. Step one has no filter and you’ll experience the world in all its noisy glory. 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.
In need of some Zen-like silence?
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 ring 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 volume buttons for your ears. Knops is 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 spent 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.
