Qore Performance Iceplate

„Building a superhuman future“ „Ice Age EcoSystem“ …, as soon as I read such premises I usually ignore them and shift them into the realm of tactical pseudo science. There are a lot of „gamechangers“ in the industry and as soon as I read about them I turn my head, look back and continue with what Iam using.

Those who had to patrol for hours with over the ear systems in hot areas also know how uncomfy they can get and when talking ear pro we should always talk tolerance. In-ear solutions are often handled as the stepchild of the industry, ignoring the fact that brands like Silynx or Invisio are creating integrated comms In-Ear solutions that outperform their headphone brothers in almost all areas.
