Business Insider is reporting that “Cros” hearing aid covers are in the works for the U.S. market.
The cover will include a built-in earbud for use while sitting.
The covers will be priced at $169.99 and can be pre-ordered at the time of this article’s publishing.
Cros’ CEO, Steve Schlosser, told Business Insider that the company has been working on the cover for over a year.
“We’ve been working for a while now on it,” Schlossers comments.
“We have a couple of years of development under our belt and a couple other things going on.
We’ve had a couple people say we need to make something more for people that are hearing impaired and want something that will work in that environment.”
He added that the design is based on a real-world case that has been covered extensively by Consumer Reports, a respected publication.
Schlossers also spoke to Business Insider about the company’s plans to bring its products to the U and abroad.
He said that the plan is to start manufacturing in the U this year, which would help offset some of the costs associated with bringing the products to other countries.
“There are a couple different areas that we’re looking into, but we think the global market is where we’re going to have to be most effective,” he said.
Cos was founded in 2013 by Schlossering and two former colleagues.
The company has raised $5.8 million in Series B funding.
The company also recently secured a $2.6 million Series A funding round led by the UBS Fund Management Group, which is based in the United Kingdom.
The news of the Cros earbuds came on the heels of the launch of a new version of the Earbuds.
The new version has a new design that has a slightly thinner profile than the original.
The original Earbud also included a built in earbout, which was removed in the latest version of both products.
The new Earbout includes a built and adjustable earbuddy, and can accommodate different ear types, as well as Bluetooth.
The original EarBuds came in a pair of earbunches, which were designed to fit the ear of the average person.
Both versions of the new earbouts feature a built up cover that is removable for personal use.
