Today, cell phones and earbuds are nearly inseparable. But, listening to music or talking on the phone in loud environments is nearly impossible. Haven Technologies set out to fix that. On August 31, 2016, the company launched its first product, ISOtunes, after more than a year of development and preparation. The company says its noise isolation Bluetooth earbuds are certified for the toughest workplace standards available, using noise cancelling also for voice quality during calls.
Haven Technologies manufactures and markets electronic products that enhance personal safety and day-to-day living. ISOtunes noise-isolating Bluetooth earbuds are the first product in a series of headphones to be introduced by the company. For now, the products can be found on the ISOtunes website and on Amazon, selling for $59.99.
Haven Technologies has developed its products working exclusively with leading global partners in Bluetooth technology and eartip performance. The company says they tested its products against the toughest workplace standards available (NIOSH/OSHA) to attain certification of proven noise isolation and make sure ISOtunes are able to block outside noise and can be used in the workplace instead of earplugs.
Pete Murphy, President of Haven Technologies, started the company in October 2015 and began developing the products using his career experience as a general manager for multinational personal safety brands. “ISOtunes are made specifically for you to enjoy your music in loud environments. If you are cutting grass or using power tools, if you are a woodworker or manufacturer, if you do lots of air travel or commute via buses or trains, if you find the gym loud & distracting, if you do light duty assembly line work, or if you just want to block outside noise better, then ISOtunes was built for you,”says Murphy.
“For ISOtunes, a Noise Reduction Rating of 26 decibels is more than just a stamp of approval for use in industrial environments, it’s the company’s promise to consumers that they won’t get a better noise isolating experience from any other headphones. And proven noise isolation doesn’t end with the earbuds. A built-in noise cancelling microphone blocks out noise like lawn mowers and jet engines, allowing users to talk on the phone in many loud environments without interruption,” the company adds.
Brought together with features like superior sound quality, magnetic earbud controls and IPX3 water resistance, ISOtunes set a new standard for noise isolating earbuds available at this price level on the consumer headphone market - active noise cancelling alternatives typically cost 3 to 6 times more. In order to combine best in class noise isolation, comfort, fit and sound quality, ISOtunes also partnered with Comply Foam, the recognized brand in foam eartip technology, to provide its products with the best all-around listening experience for loud environments.
Memory foam eartips expand to fit snugly inside the ear, using a heat-activated ergonomic design for higher comfort during extended use. Designed with more than 20 types of users in mind, and to withstand whatever activity users put them through, each ISOtunes pair comes with added stability support (SecureFit tips or custom fit memory wire) to ensure the best fit during mobile activities. Bluetooth connectivity combined with a USB-rechargeable lithium ion battery provides 4+ hours of music play and talk time. The ultra-lightweight design and storage case allow for easy traveling anywhere and the magnetic earbud ends provide simple controls for music and calls.
