Aurisonics Rockets

Most earbuds barely endure the harsh environment that is the inside of a backpack, let alone getting slammed by a 30 pound mallet. But then, most buds aren’t milled from titanium, fitted with anchored Kevlar tri-weave cables, and rated waterproof to IP65 standards like Aurisonics’ Rockets. Obviously, extreme durability would be moot without sound quality to match, so Rockets sport 5.1mm drivers and four sizes of SureSeal sound isolating tips that block out 24 dB of unwanted noise. Throw in patented tri-tab silicone retention collars and you’ve got a pair of buds perfectly suited to active and sedentary lifestyles alike.
