With over a million units sold, Loop Earplugs has fostered a fiercely loyal and vocal community of users.
And their feedback has helped shape the company’s newest set of earplugs, called Loop Engage.
Designed with social settings and conversation in mind, Engage completes a trifecta of Loop products that ensure users are covered, no matter their circumstances.
Introducing Loop Engage
Users asked, and Loop listened
Loop’s catalogue has always satisfied a diverse range of customer needs: hearing protection for concerts, festivals and nightlife, coverage while commuting and motorcycling, and sensory management for both people with noise sensitivity and parents, too.
Until now, though, something called the ‘occlusion effect’ has sometimes been a sticking point. ‘Occlusion’ is the technical term for the head-underwater feeling most earplugs produce, where your own voice and other ‘body sounds’ seem to echo in your head.
Loop Engage is the answer. The earplugs deliver significant noise reduction while freeing up noise-sensitive users to speak, listen and network with less occlusion effect, in the places where they need to be ‘on it’ most: in noisy social gatherings, or out and about and with the kids. During its testing stage, 90% of users felt the product was a logical next step for Loop.
Engage earplugs feature innovative technology that builds on the benefits of Loop’s revolutionary line of products. The company’s bestselling Experience earplugs already provide 18 dB of noise reduction in noisy settings where sound quality is key – like live musical performances. They achieve this through a square acoustic channel and a membrane that together mimic the inner ear itself. In comparison, Engage are designed to primarily facilitate social interactions in noisy environments. They feature a round channel capped with a mesh filter and no membrane, eliminating the occlusion effect. They cap up to 16 dB of excess noise, with an additional 5 dB possible if Loop Mutes are added to the Engage Plus. They’re also a perfect complement to Loop Quiet, which offer 27 dB of coverage and are intended for total focus and sleep.
Emboldened & empowered
Now every Loop user can filter the noise without compromising their voice. Like all Loop products, Engage earplugs are reusable, and they’re as clear as their sound – currently coming in four transparent colorways. Loop Engage will be available for purchase at loopearplugs.com for €24.95 from 18 October.
