3D 20/20 Active Ambient Eye Plugs
The new Sensaphonics 3D 20/20, shown in its current beta version, is the world's first Active Ambient optical protection system.

Sensaphonics has announced its expansion into the field of custom eye protection with the introduction of the 3D 20/20, the world's first Active Ambient Optical Protection System. The system is designed to control the harmful rays from concert lighting systems, eliminating the strobing and glare that can cause headaches or even seizures among musicians and audience members alike.

"The 3D-20/20 is, quite simply, a game-changing product," explains Sensaphonics founder and president, Dr. Michael Santucci. "We've all been to concerts where intense, high-tech moving lights are used to create a dizzying optical landscape. And while we all appreciate how this can enhance the musical performance, the sheer number of lumens reflecting off the stage can be a real problem for those with sensitive eyes. The 3D 20/20 solves this problem by providing full user control of the visual concert experience, allowing the user to dial back the lighting intensity to safer levels."

The 3D-20/20 consists of a pair of custom-fit eye plugs with embedded light receptors that decode all the light sources in the visual field and filter them via an embedded, user-adjustable filter set that is fully adjustable for intensity, color temperature, and oscillation. The user only needs to set threshold levels in accordance with their personal preferences, creating a concert experience that is at once exciting and relaxing.

"We've spent nearly 30 years as The Experts in Safe Sound, helping musicians protect their hearing. Some might say that vision conservation was the next, most obvious step for us as a company," says Santucci. "Just as our 3D Active Ambient IEM System allows users to control the amount of ambient sound being added to their monitor mix, the new 3D-20/20 offers control of ambient light conditions to convey the full, vivid intensity of concert lighting design, but does so in a way that will help preserve the user's vision."

Pricing and Availability:
Designed for both musicians and audience members, the Sensaphonics 3D-20/20 is currently in beta test and is scheduled to ship in Q3 2014.
