Finally a purpose built FPV earbud that we have engineered from the ground up to favor sound quality from onboard microphones! We hand-selected the earpiece for comfort, then tried over a dozen different speakers and homed in on the one that works best for our flying style. Surprisingly, this earbud will not break the bank either!
Disorienting audio delay and or ambient noise distractions can really take away from your flying concentration. On top of that, the earbud adds another sense to your flying - not only do you have visual references but now you have audio to help manage throttle in real time.
Why is this earbud different
Making a singular earbud and putting your name on it sounds like a simple undertaking? This project took almost a year to get right. Making an earphone that accurately highlights the important sounds (prop noise) coming from a quad is very difficult. Yes, any audio is better than no audio, but finding an earbud speaker that lets you hear prop noise well and muffles out wind noise and static proved to be way harder than is sounds! Thanks to elaborate testing and feedback from Mr. Steele and the rest of the ETHIX crew, we managed to deliver something that we are finally happy with.
