Component 1: White Noise & Sound Therapy
The foundation of the Got Ears?® Personal Isolation System™ is the Sound Oasis BST-100 portable bluetooth enabled white noise machine. The BST-100 is small enough to put in your pocket, on a nightstand in your bedroom, or the corner of your desk, but capable of delivering 10 different built-in high fidelity sounds from which to choose, plus the BST-100 accepts a micro SD card to let you add many more sounds, and it will even link up to your smart phone via BlueTooth to open the door to virtually the entire world of downloadable music and sounds letting you choose practically any sound you could ever wish for to block out the noises you wish would just go away.
Component 2: Choose from three different isolation earphones to suit your particular situation:
- PlugFones Guardian model isolation earphones are one of the least expensive isolation earphones available. These innovative earphones feature interchangeable foam and triple flange silicone ear tips that block ambient noise at a very good NRR 26 rating. With these earphones in place, you will barely be able to hear a person speaking in a normal voice as close to you as the next cubicle over. When sleeping with a snorer, you will be able to hear just a whisper of normal snoring noises. Then, when you add your favorite masking sound by plugging into your BST-100 white noise machine, what little noise was still audible, will completely disappear, letting you concentrate on your work or finally get the deep and refreshing sleep you crave.
- PlugFones Protector model isolation earphones work just like the Guardian model, but with the additional safety feature of a built in volume limiter. Protector earphones cannot deliver more than 82 dB of sound, the maximum safe level for continuous listening. No matter how loud you turn up the volume on your BST-100, Contractor VL will prevent the volume you hear from exceeding 82 dB, which makes them the safest choice for long term listening to a constant masking sound. In most situations, you will need far less than 82 dB of masking sound to do the job, so it is unlikely that you will ever exceed a safe level of masking sound, but if you have any concern about the potential for hearing damage from long term use of your Got Ears?® Personal Isolation System™, choose the PlugFones Protector isolation earphones.
- MicroBuds isolation earphones are the smallest isolation earphones you can buy. These tiny little earphones are small enough that most people can even lie on them while you sleep, and in the ear, they are barely noticeable.
Component 3: Mobility & Freedom
Finally, we provide a choice of earphone extension cords so you can still enjoy the freedom to move around in your office or cubicle while wearing your earphones and enjoying your personal isolation from the noises that surround you.
Office workers who are distracted or bothered by nearby conversations. Plug in your isolation earphones, turn on the masking sound you like best and you can instantly solve the problem of all that yacking. Finally, you can concentrate and get your work done.
College students trying to do homework (or sleep!) in a noisy dorm room. With your Got Ears?® Personal Isolation System™, you can block the noise that never seems to cease in the dorm or apartment building, and choose your favorite masking sound, whether it be the sound of a mountain stream or your favorite tunes delivered by bluetooth to your BST-100.
Anyone trying to sleep in a noisy bedroom, whether due to noise from the street or the apartment next door, and especially when the love of your life is snoring like a freight train. We hear every day from suffering spouses who find that ordinary ear plugs just will not cut it when trying to sleep with loud snoring. Finally, you can get the sleep you need by using your Got Ears?® Personal Isolation System™.
Anyone suffering from tinnitus, hyperacusis or ANS (acute noise sensitivity). By using your Got Ears?® Personal Isolation System™ you can mask painful sounds and tinnitus sounds, and even help to condition your mind to become less sensitive to loud noises, improving your ability to cope with our increasingly noisy world. The Got Ears?® Personal Isolation System™ can be a useful tool in applying the principles of TRT (Tinnitus Retraining Therapy).
TIP: The Personal Isolation System we offer is made up of quality components at reduced prices so whichever components you choose, your system will be a great value. However, if you are a little short on funds, you can make your own system by downloading a white noise app for your smart phone and plugging in a set of isolation earphones to play your favorite masking sound.
