What is Knops?
What if you could adjust the volume of life itself? No more flights filled with crying babies. No more risk of your ears falling off at that concert. No more loud neighbours. Only the sounds you like to hear, when you want to hear them. Sounds good? Well, hear us out. Double pun. Super intended. We are talking about Knops —the volume button for your ears.
How it Works
It’s actually pretty darn simple. Each pair of Knops has four steps. Adjust the Knops to step one and you will hear what you would’ve heard without plugs. The real fun starts when you switch to the other three steps. Step 2 will reduce the volume to filter the noise of a vibrant city. Step 3 will adjust the volume to a live music setting and step 4 will create a silent environment ideal for work. Four different modes for every audio situation. If your sound-related needs change, switch easily between steps. Say goodbye to continuous plugging and unplugging. Knops are engineered to wear in all sorts of situations, so you don’t have to worry about the buds falling out of your ears. You wouldn’t want to lose them!
During the development of Knops, we noticed a lack of aesthetics in hearing protection products and hearables. Or, as we like to put it, most earbuds are downright ugly as hell. That’s a pity, because if a product can be seen on the user in everyday life, it should be in line with or even enhance the user’s personal style, right? That’s why we based the design of Knops on a classing round volume button, with the inside shaped like a gramophone cone, showing the link with volume and sound. To make it even more stylish, you can pick from a number of colours and trims.
