You can answer calls, skip tracks in your playlist or even summon Siri just by using the intuitive touchpad on the side of the shades.

3. Pluggerz Swim

Keep your ears safe.
Pluggerz are the situation-specific earplugs that reduce volume without losing clarity of experience and overall health. For Pluggerz, it’s not about cancelling noise, it’s about “regulating” it, using innovative technology that makes it possible to adapt to situations including sleep, loud music, airplane travel, swimming and more.

Trouble with sensitive ear canals? Then having water in the ears is particularly annoying and sometimes painful. Pluggerz Swim are specially developed for swimming, bathing and showering. These unique earplugs close the ear canal during swimming and keep the ear canal watertight, but do not affect hearing. Made of flexible silicone and hypoallergenic material that is durable and keeps its shape. This keeps the ears dry and prevents pressure in the ears.
Each type of situation-specific Pluggerz uses different technology to ensure different effects:

·         Pluggerz Swim helps prevent infection by closing the ear canal so water cannot get trapped, but does not affect hearing so you can still hear while wearing them.
