a volume button for your ears.

In night life and going out situations most people get exposed to loud music; loud enough for inflicting permanent damage. Although almost everybody knows about the dangers and there are existing hearing protection solutions, almost nobody uses hearing protection.
Knops is a volume button for your ears. Knops is literally a volume button directly on the users ears. The user is self in control of the volume level which enters the ears. Knops also goes against the grain with existing hearing protection, where it shouldn’t be hidden and the users don’t have to be ashamed for using this product. Knops becomes an accessory item which is part of the users looks.
