The NOVA H1 Audio Earrings and its impact on one's health

Compared to a smartphone, that irradiates 2000 mW, our Audio Earrings only emit 1 mW when on a phone call. Because of this, the German Federal Office for Radiation Protection (Bundesamt für Strahlenschutz) recommends the usage of headsets.

It is important, though, to note that one is mostly exposed to radiation when using the earrings and not by merely wearing them - they go into ultrasleep mode when not in use.

Absolutely not. Because of the quality of the materials used (silver and gold) and the fact that they are nickel free, the most sensitive of the skins will be protected.

Furthermore, their lightweight (7g per earring) will make you think that you are wearing high quality conventional earrings. If still not convinced, we have a stud version for those with pierced ears.

No more than wearing conventional earrings. When it comes to radiation, the earphones emit 1mW against a mobile phone that radiates 2000 mW.
Regarding hygiene, the earrings are not inside the ear canal but on the earlobe, so there's no blockage of the ear canal or ear wax clogging.

Use Cases

Yes, you can use the NOVA Audio Earrings mono or stereo.

Yes, you can. Thanks to our Directional Sound you will be able to hear your favorite tune as well as the traffic around you.

You shouldn’t dry your hair with the NOVA Audio Earrings on. Since the ear canal is not blocked, the earrings are clipped-on on your earlobe, you will not be able to hear the music properly with the sound of the hair dryer.

No, the NOVA Audio Earrings are not waterproof. Besides that, the Bluetooth signal from your phone to your Audio Earrings would not work under water.

If you usually do sports with earrings on, go for it. In any case, we would recommend not to do so to avoid injuries or losing one of the earrings. In general, sports with softer moves like yoga shouldn’t be a problem. When it comes to swimming, do not use the NOVA Audio Earrings, they are not waterproof.

Specs

Questions about the technical specifications of the NOVA H1

No, the NOVA Audio Earrings do not provide Active Noise Cancelation. Since the Audio Earrings are placed outside the ear canal and on the earlobe, it is not possible to cancel the surroundings noise.

In fact, one of our USPs is being connected to the outside world at all times.

The algorithm in the chip we are using and the combination of 2 microphones block the noise around you, for example wind, so the person on the other end of the call can hear you clearly.

COVID-19

In a time in which most of us are doing home office - maybe our kids, partners or roommates are home as well - the NOVA H1 Audio Earrings are the perfect ally to get things done while keeping you connected to the real world by hearing everything that is happening around you.
Be on a work call and hear the delivery man at the door, prepare a presentation while listening to music and hear when the washing machine finishes its cycle...the possibilities are endless.

You can use the Audio Earrings for Skype, WhatsApp, Zoom and any other audio or music apps and platforms on your smartphone, tablet or pc.

Yes, the same as you would wear conventional earrings. Since they are small in size, with a tight clip-on grip or stud, and do not hang from the earlobe, they sit comfortably and securely on your ear.
