Relieves humidity and temp. after using earbuds, or after a shower, swim, surf or workout. Monitor in real-time with the DearBuds app.
DearBuds is a 2022 CES Innovation Awards Honoree.
In 2021, we launched the campaign for our CES award-winning product, DearBuds, on Kickstarter.
But due to semiconductor supply chain issues, we had to cancel our campaign. Now that we’ve resolved the issue, we’re back with DearBuds SE – the DearBuds single edition with new and improved app features!
*From here on, “DearBuds SE” is abbreviated to “DearBuds.”
Earbuds and headphones have become essential items that we use while we commute, exercise, watch videos, and go about our lives in general.
When we use earbuds over long periods of time, we feel itchiness, plus the uncomfortable buildup of sweat and heat in our ears.
There are all kinds of ways we raise the humidity of our ears, including showering, swimming, and using earplugs.
No matter what brand of earbuds you use or how quickly you dry your ears after a shower, ear humidity levels see an average spike of up to 40% after these activities.
When the humidity in our ears goes up, our ears make more earwax, become itchier, and may cause us to experience difficulty hearing.
After using earbuds, taking a shower, working out, or after participating in an aquatic sport like surfing or swimming, what do you do to dehumidify and drain water out of your ears?
Do you use cotton swabs? Or do you just shake your head until the water falls out on its own?
Cotton swabs irritate and damage our ear canals.
That’s why CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) recommends using a blow dryer to dehumidify your ears.
But hair dryers are very loud and can vary vastly in terms of power, speed, and heat. All these reasons and more make them hard to use properly for ear drying purposes.
Young children in particular have a hard time getting rid of humidity and moisture in their ears without help from their parents.
DearBuds is an ear-care device. Though DearBuds may resemble your typical wireless earbuds, it is not an audio device.
