dBud is a hearing protector system equipped with advanced technologies. It includes an acoustic filter lowering the volume of music – while preserving sound quality – so that the user can enjoy music without incurring a health risk, whether at a concert or a party. A practical detail is the neckband along with the magnetically connected earplugs, for simple wear around the neck. The earplugs thus stay in reach at all times.

Statement by the Jury

The dBud delivers intelligent and customised volume control and attenuation. Since its design is inspired by in-ear headphones, the hearing protector may be worn discreetly.
