Cell Phone Earbud Lets You Talk With Your Ear

Ever feel people are talking out of their ears? A new communications product development start-up Nap Enterprise Co. has a tiny earbud microphone that enables cellular phone conversations to be carried on in even very noisy settings like concert halls and construction sites. The kicker is, the incore microphone that is built into the earbud speaker picks up the spoken voice not from the mouth, but from inside the ear.

The person need not speak up to be heard, and a special sound-damping pad works to both block outside sounds from the microphone and to let the user clearly hear the other end of the conversation through the speaker, says the maker. The pad is made from five layers of silicone rubber that are gathered together in a fluted shape so that sounds need to travel in air between layers of silicone. Geek out!
