Let’s dive in and discover how these innovative headphones stand out in the sea of tech gadgets.

What Are Air Tube Headphones?

In this age where technology rules the world, finding gadgets that not only deliver on performance but also prioritize your health can seem like searching for a needle in a haystack.

Air Tube Headphones by SYB

At their core, air tube headphones are a revolutionary breed of earbuds designed to minimize your exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) — those invisible energy waves emitted by your favorite tech gadgets.

Unlike traditional headphones that use wires to deliver sound directly to your ears, air tube headphones take a detour. They convert electrical signals into sound waves much earlier, and then transmit these sounds through hollow tubes filled with air (hence the name).

What Was Wrong with Wired Headphones?

We’ve always championed wired headphones as the safer choice compared to their wireless counterparts.

When you connect these headphones directly to your phone, they transport sound waves through a wire to your ears, converting them into audible sounds. This setup keeps your phone, a major source of EMF, away from your body.

Wireless headphones, on the other hand, need to emit large amounts of EMF to connect to your device, placing your head in the path of this radiation.

But wired headphones aren’t without their issues.

The crux of the matter centers around their lifeline: the metal wire. This wire, while excellent at carrying sound to the earbuds, also inadvertently acts as a pathway for EMF radiation.

In simple words, the wire in your headphones delivers small amounts of EMF from your phone right to your ear, alongside your music, which isn’t good.

But if you have wired headphones, don’t just throw them out yet. There’s a workaround to this problem, which I’ll talk about later in this post.

And What About Wireless Headphones?

This is the option we do not recommend at all because, unlike wired headphones that carry a small amount of radiation from your phone to your ear, wireless headphones generate their own EMF.

This is what helps them connect to your devices wirelessly. And by wearing them, you’re effectively placing a significant EMF source in your ear, exposing your very sensitive brain.

So, if wired headphones aren’t ideal and wireless headphones are off the table, what should you use?

Air Tube Headphones: The Safest Among Headphones

If you’re in the market for a non-premium product, then air tube headphones are the way to go.

These headphones will keep the electronic bits away from your head, as the wires inside them stop short of your ears. For the sound to reach you, it travels the last part of its journey through a hollow tube.

This way, you get your music or podcasts directly to your ears, minus the EMF.

Let’s check out air tube headphones from some leading EMF-protection brands to find you the perfect match for your lifestyle and needs.

The SYB Headset Anti-Radiation Device (H.A.R.D)

While highly effective as EMF blockers, air tubes have one major downside: they don’t deliver the absolute best sound quality. It’s not that they’re not designed well – air tube technology is just limited.

SYB Anti Radiation Headset Shield, Air Tube Alternative

They’re great for making calls and listening to podcasts but do not provide a premium level audio experience for listening to music, watching movies, or playing games.

But we have found a solution to this – and it’s the only one in the EMF-protection market.

Introducing the SYB H.A.R.D. – the best alternative to air tubes for blocking EMF radiation and keeping you safe – while also providing fantastic audio at the same time.

Why is H.A.R.D. the Better Alternative to EMF Protection Headphones?

The SYB H.A.R.D. (Headset Anti Radiation Device) is the latest and best technology for protecting your head and brain from radiation. 

Here’s how it works: 

You simply plug one end of the HARD device into your audio jack, then plug your favorite pair of headphones into the other end. In other words, the HARD EMF protection sits in between you and your device. 

The SYB HARD protection contains a powerful dielectric gel formula that absorbs unwanted radiofrequency radiation, preventing it from reaching your ears and brain. 

Unlike air tube headsets, SYB HARD protection doesn’t degrade your sound quality. Because it works with your favorite headset or headphones, you get the sound quality you’re used to – while also protecting yourself from cell phone EMF radiation.

In fact, because it removes interference from the cable, HARD can even enhance audio quality.

Additional Benefits of Our Headset Anti-Radiation Device

The SYB HARD EMF protection for headphones has a bunch of benefits:

  • It blocks 99% of cell phone radiation away from your brain.
  • It’s small, subtle, and stylish. 
  • You can use it with ANY headphones, earphones, or headset you want.
  • Any controls that you have on your headphones – like volume control and call answering – still work.
  • You can use it on any standard 3.5mm jack, which means it’s suitable for most smartphones, laptops, tablets, and other devices with audio. If you have a later-model smartphone without a 3.5mm jack, you can simply use a Lightning or USB-C adapter. 
  • No batteries are required. 
  • No sacrifice on audio quality. 

So what’s the downside? 

If we could think of one, we’d tell you. But as far as we’re concerned. this is our best solution yet for making your headphones safer and protecting your head and brain from harmful EMF rays.
