Materials and Fabrics

anti bacterial fabric

 

EarHugz® are fashionable, hygienic, sweat proof headphone covers, designed to keep your headphones in good condition for longer. These accessories are UK manufactured and designed, and have a distinctly British feel to them. The secret to their effectiveness is their fabric, which is made from the blend of two different materials - polyester and spandex.

Features of Polyester Fibres

Polyester fibres and fabrics are highly durable and strong. They are resistant to the majority of chemicals, shrinking and stretching, mildew, abrasion and wrinkles. This hydrophobic material dries quickly as well.

Features of Spandex Fibres

Spandex fibres can be repeatedly pulled and still revert to their original shape and length. Typically, they can be stretched to over five times their length, without breaking. This supple, lightweight, smooth, soft material outperforms rubber, with respect to its' strength, durability and retractive force. EarHugz® combines these two materials to produce a stretchy, funky fabric that is perfect for headphone wearers. These sweat absorbing protectors will make you appear stylish and original, with prints such as the red mist being unisex.

How the Material Works

Headphones can gradually accumulate moisture over time, if they are not adequately protected. This often causes them to lose sound and stop working properly. When this occurs, you have to spend time and money ordering a new pair. To prevent this from happening, EarHugz® uses sweat absorption material to cover the headphones and offer long term protection. All EarHugz products, like the superhero, can be machine washed, so you will look and smell fresh all day! The sweat absorption fabric is carefully made and uses a capillary action. The fabric has tiny capillaries embedded into it, which diverts moisture towards the fabrics outer layer where it can dry.

Health Benefits

The sweat absorption fabric will eliminate troublesome moisture and ensure that your skin remains free of rashes or spots close to your ears. If moisture comes into contact with your skin for a while, you might come out in a rash if your skin is sensitive. Moisture causes skin irritation and can create a breeding ground for bacteria that results in various skin conditions. EarHugz® uses quick drying fabric, which reduces the chance of bacteria accumulating in your pores when you sweat.

EarHugz® sweat proof headphone covers are perfect for people who want to save cash by not having to purchase new headphones prematurely. We have a variety of prints and colours available, so you can choose the combination that suits you best. Even better, all pairs can be reversed, so if you want a more discreet look occasionally, you can turn the covers inside out and opt for subtle headphones.
