Who would have thought that the idea of combining earphones with earplugs would have created such harmony? Earplugs are meant to keep noise out, and earphones create it. By combining the two ideas, PLUGFONES has created a unique relationship. Music can now be enjoyed in environments that otherwise would have been impossible.

When I first started using PLUGFONES I thought they were nice, but I didn't realize their true potential right away. Because I'm typically in a lower noise environment, I thought the opportunities to use them would be limited. An interesting thing happened though, when I stopped listening to music because the environment was getting too noisy, I realized I could still continue listening with PLUGFONES. I found myself not only using them while in noisy environments in public and around home, but anytime because of their light weight and portability. Not only were they comfortable, but I could listen to music at a much lower level because they were so good at blocking noise.

The battery life was great for casual use. I found I only needed to charge them once a week using the headphones for a few hours each day. For the earplugs, there are two options depending on which your prefer or the amount of noise you need to block.

They paired easily with my phone and I often found myself setting my phone down and walking around with only the headset because of the extended range. When I was done using them, I could conveniently store them in the high quality case that they came with.

Some might be wondering how these compare to noise canceling headphones. With noise canceling headphones I noticed they tend to block out certain ranges of noise, but other noise is still heard due to how noise canceling headsets work. With PLUGFONES I could listen regardless of the kind of noise because of the noise reduction from the earplugs.
