Hear This: Plugfones Liberate

Categories Lifestyle

You’ll enter a whole new world of noise reduction and sound quality.

Available for a few years now, Plugfones are a clever combination of earplugs and earbuds.

Now, via Kickstarter, the company is kicking thing up a notch with Plugfones Liberate, utilising Bluetooth 4.0 to do away with pesky wires.

What you get with the new model is an easy-to-wear device that weighs less than 150 grams, has an eight-hour battery life and a range of up to 20 metres.


The sound quality is awesome but the noise-reduction is nothing short of astounding because these babies can block out a four-lane freeway… when you’re standing right in the middle of the median strip.

That mobility and capability means Plugfones Liberate are as useful in the gym and they are on a long-haul flight.

Better yet, the noise reduction mic means they’ll filter out intrusive background sounds whenever you answer a phone call.

Plugfones Liberate come with simple control buttons, are sweat and water resistant, and the foam/silicone buds are easily replaceable.


They ship from next month from $US99. Discounts can be had at their Kickstarter, which has already exceeded its $US35,000 target by $US200,000.
