sculpted eers are custom-fit earbuds that use SonoFit technology, the engineering innovation at the heart of Montréal-based Sonomax Technologies Inc.’s (SHH.V) innovations. sculpted eers provide maximum comfort, exceptional sound and a secure fit even during vigorous activity thanks to medical grade silicone that molds to the unique shape of an individual’s ears in approximately four minutes.
sculpted eers by Sonomax® bundles more than a dozen patented technologies into a disposable fitting system that creates the customized earpiece. In the future, the technology will also be available in any number of other applications such as hearing protection devices, BluetoothTM headsets, hearing aids and other in-ear products.
The standard PCS-100 sculptured eers retails for $199.99 and features a single dynamic speaker with enhanced bass. The premium dual driver PCS-200 is $299.99 and features two speakers (tweeter and woofer) in each earphone for an unparalleled sound experience.
