EAROS ONE is a sophisticated acoustic filter engineered to prevent hearing damage caused by exposure to loud environments, while maintaining sound fidelity, comfort, and style. Offering maximum functionality and performance at an affordable retail price of $40, the device allows those who spend time in loud hospitality and entertainment venues to remain safely immersed in the full spectrum of sound.
EAROS Inc. was founded by hospitality entrepreneur Ronnie Madra (founding partner of Butter Group and 1 OAK) after years of suffering from hearing damage and realizing that this issue was affecting many of his employees and patrons. Madra partnered with renowned acousticians, audiologists, vibration engineers to work together tirelessly to develop a solution: EAROS ONE.
“For us, club operators and music entrepreneurs, it’s an obligation to have responsible business practices and protect individuals in all loud working environments.” – Ronnie Madra, Founder of EAROS
The sleek, comfortable, and functional design has also garnered support from a number of notable musicians and influencers including Chris Botti (musician), Dean Winters (actor), Gerard Butler (actor), Toni Garrn (model) and more. "Ronnie and the EAROS team really solved an important problem. Protecting your hearing and still being able to enjoy music is a game changer." - Gerard Butler Actor and Music lover
Countless studies have recognized the large-scale risk posed by exposure to loud environments without adequate hearing protection. In 2015 the World Health Organization found that 1.1 billion young people are at risk of hearing damage from exposure to recreational noise; of this group, 40% (~440 million) are at risk due to attending loud entertainment venues. Beyond limiting one’s ability to communicate and enjoy music, hearing damage can lead to a variety of negative health outcomes, such as loss of balance, insomnia, depression, dementia, and Alzheimer’s.
Through Madra’s nightlife connections, several leading hospitality and entertainment venues are already using the product to protect their staff, including GOSPËL, 1 OAK and Up&Down. EAROS strives to educate venue owners and operators about hearing prevention, targeting nightclubs, concert halls, arenas, stadiums, music festivals, bars, fitness venues, and more.
“We live in a loud society and we want to help people avoid the acoustical hangover, loss of balance, and other health risks that come with this. Our goal is to ensure that all generations can sustain their recreational lifestyle in a healthy way.” - Ronnie Madra, Founder of EAROS

How it Works:
EAROS ONE is composed of a dense plastic that interrupts sound pressure and attenuates noise levels while still allowing a full spectrum of sound frequencies to pass through it and reach the ears. With EAROS ONE, the sound that reaches your ear is safe and pure, not muffled or distorted as experienced with traditional earplugs. The product’s thermoplastic elastomer triple flange ear tip offers a soft, comfortable fit in the ear canal while its unique “concha tab” tucks under the concha to ensure that EAROS ONE remains securely in place in the ear. The accompanying app uses sound analysis technology to measure the noise level in your environment and determine whether your ears can benefit from using EAROS ONE. The app will also let you know how long you can stay in your current loud environment without damaging your hearing (both with and without wearing EAROS ONE).
