If you are a frequent traveler, you have probably had many experiences with your ears popping. This is due to the quick change in air pressure as you ascend or descend in altitude, such as in an airplane. However, this doesn’t only happen in airplanes, as your ears can also pop while you are driving along mountains, scuba diving, etc. Now, Professor Burkhard Franz, the founder of the renowned Tinnitus Research and Balance Clinic in Melobourne, has created the Ear Pressure Equalizer. This product does exactly what it sounds like, it equalizes the pressure of your ear to save you from the discomfort caused by your ear popping.
Of course, there are traditional methods to use whenever your ears pop, such as yawning, chewing gum, swallowing or wiggling your jaw, but they do not always work for everyone. The Ear Pressure Equalizer can always be used to instantly match the pressure inside your ear with the pressure on the outside. It uses the air from your outer ear to create somewhat of a vacuum effect to gently guide the eardrum back its location. All you do is push on a little pump-like button and the pressure in your ear is equalized. No worries though, the built-in safety vent keeps you safe from getting too much pressure in your ear. The Ear Pressure Equalizer is small and convenient to carry around with you as it only weighs 1.6 ounces. For about $60, you can buy yourself an Ear Pressure Equalizer at Pro-Idee.
