The XP Reactor earplugs have reactive, interchangeable filters that block damaging noise while letting you hear frequencies to help you maintain more normal hearing around you. 

The XP Defender opens and closes simply with the push of a button. This lets you instantly switch between hearing and protecting.

Take Control of Your Hearing

Say goodbye to those generic, awkward, and uncomfortable ear plugs. The XP Defender and XP Reactor plugs give you something no other protection on the market can -CONTROL; these new noise cancelling earplugs give you total control over your hearing by helping you block out loud, harmful noises while still giving you the ability to hear what is going on around you. You can finally have the peace of mind that your hearing is being protected while staying connected to the world.

So, How Does it Work?

Both the XP Defender and XP Reactor are non-digital, silicone ear plugs. Their design is simple, but they are constructed by some of the most experienced and professional sound engineers in the hearing industry.

XP REACTOR

How the XP Reactor Works
How the XP Reactor Works

The filters for the XP Reactor are designed to let in low level passive sounds to allow you to have "normal" hearing whether damaging loud or intermittent sounds are happening around you or not. They provide an intentionally low NRR rating of around 8 dB for passive attenuation. When loud noises occur, the combination of disc and mesh inside of the filter provides an impulse noise reduction of as much as 33 dB. This happens instantaneously without requiring moving parts.

XP DEFENDER

How the XP Defender Works
How the XP Defender Works

The XP Defender operates the same way as the XP Reactor. The switch simply allows you to change the plugs into full defense mode. Making the passive attenuation up to NRR 18 dB. Impulse reduction remains about the same up to 33 dB.

The XP Defender has a special sound valve that can be opened and closed by a small switch. This makes it so you can seamlessly go from protecting your hearing to hearing what is going on around you clearly. It’s that simple; open the valve to hear, close it to protect.

 The filters let you to customize your hearing experience through swapping out filters that are specifically made to be worn in certain situations. For example, if you are a musician earplugs might be necessary, or if you are going to a concert, you would insert the “music” filter into your XP Reactor plug. This “music” filter would filter out all of the harmful noises and frequencies that you will experience at loud concerts while still letting  you comfortably hear the noises around you.

Risks and challenges

For over 25 years, we have brought many products successfully to market. We have never had a failed market launch. This product is 99% finished and preparing to ship. We will use the crowdsource funding to order new inventory in and then fill the orders asap.

*If we get pledges for 25,000-60,000 ear plugs or more, it could take us 40-60 days to get everything shipped. If it's less than those numbers, all products will ship throughout the month stated for delivery.

As we state the month of August for delivery, that means it will most likely take the whole month of August to get everyone shipped. If higher quantities are ordered, it could take us into September to get everyone shipped. We will ship on a first ordered basis.
