There’s a new pair of headphones that can wash wax out of your ears in just 35 seconds, but they’re not for the faint of heart.
The unusual invention could be more effective than the classic cotton bud, but they are expensive and look quite disgusting after use, The sun reports.
A video of the headphones was posted on YouTube by SafKan Health.
The caption explains: “Impacted earwax is the leading cause of conductive hearing loss according to Harvard Medical School.
“Syringes, spray bottles and water lines are time consuming, messy and outdated.
“Learn how healthcare professionals reduce procedure time and treat more patients with OtoSet.
“OtoSet from SafKan Health is the first automated and FDA-cleared ear cleaning device for clinical use.”
All users have to do is push a button and the water shoots into their ears.
Then, “microsuction technology” is said to break down the infested earwax and remove it quickly and safely.
The company refers to the process as a “mess-free procedure,” but you’ll end up seeing a lot of clutter in the headphone water eventually.
Twitter user @JaValle tweeted a video of the headphones in action.
It now has millions of views and lots of mixed reactions in the comments.
One person replied: “I wish I could see this.”
The video shows the process of water splashing into the wearer’s ear and wax being ejected into the clear headphones.
The color the water changed shocked some people.
One person joked “Like I thought it was tea brewing headphones.”
But many viewers were impressed and eager to buy the headphones.
That was until they saw the price tag.
The device comes at a price of $2,753 (£2,297).
It is much more than the simple cotton bud.
Some videos of the headphones contain user reactions.
One woman said, “Wow, did something come out of my ear?”
Another user concluded: “It’s weirdly satisfying.”
A big advantage is that users will probably get a more thorough cleaning in the short time of 35 seconds.
