ITreq Media Player Hangs off Your Ear

by Shane McGlaun

Back when I had time to go to the gym one of the things that seemed to happen all the time was that I would end up getting the cord to my headphones caught on some of the equipment and jerk my iPhone right out of my pocket. I always expected to pick it up with a shattered screen, but luckily that never happened. I bet I’m not the only one that has a problem with their media player falling out of the pocket when they are being active.

A new project has turned up on Kickstarter for an media player that promises to be perfect for the active user.

With the ITreq, there are no long cables to get in your way or to become tangled up on something. The entire player hangs off the back of your ear using a medical grade silicone ear hook. The enclosure itself is certified IP53 water resistant so it should handle sweat and the occasional downpour just fine.

The player has an attached earbud that sticks into your ear canal and a 3.5 mm port allowing you to run another earbud around to your other ear for stereo sound. Music is stored on MicroSD cards so you can upgrade the player to as much as 32GB of storage. It’s compatible with audio files in MP3. WMA, secure WMA V7, FLAC and Ogg Vorbis formats. Battery life is estimated at eight hours per charge.

Assuming the project hits its funding goal, a pledge of $59(USD) or more will get you your own ITreq when it ships this September.
