Shokz and DirectPitch™ Technology
Observation Leads to Innovation
When Shokz engineers observed how motor vehicle mufflers and tailpipes incorporated holes in their design to reduce noise, it sparked an idea: could this same principle be applied to headphones to reduce sound leakage? The engineers took a unique approach and developed LeakSlayerTM technology, which later led to the creation of DirectPitchTM technology.
Premium Materials for a Cutting-Edge Design
In order to provide users with a comfortable Open-Ear listening experience, Shokz researched materials and designs that would work best with DirectPitchTM technology. By scanning over 200 ears from all over the world and using 3D printing technology, Shokz Lab developed an ergonomic and flexible ear hook design that fits most ear shapes. They also experimented with various types of silicone, ultimately settling on a dual-layer silicone structure with a Shore hardness of 00, perfect cushioning for sensitive ears.
