Until Pokemon Go absorbed every ounce of our attention, headphones were a pretty large cause for keeping us distracted and disconnected from the outer world.. often putting us in danger. To be brutally honest, I haven’t been particularly careful myself… I need to plug in earphones while I walk back from work, and that isn’t really the safest on the road. ‘Focus’ is a pair of earphones that allow you to hear external sounds WITH your music when you want. Just unplug the valve on the outer face of the earpieces to allow outside sound to filter through when you want/need. When you want to be engrossed in your world of music, press the valve in and it seals off all outer sounds, so you can use the Focus like a normal set of earphones. Now you can have your music and still be aware of your surroundings!
