Reverse Sound Earphones

Reverse-sound technology delivers a virtual surround-sound experience.


Compact earbuds deliver amazing surround sound.
  • Reverse-sound technology delivers a virtual surround sound experience
  • Around-the-ear earphone design
  • Includes protective travel pouch and spare buds
Advanced audio processing technology for amazing sound quality.
Reverse-sound technology delivers a virtual surround-sound experience and amazing audio. The 'reverse' refers to the earbuds' speakers, which direct sound waves away from the ear and then bounce them back into the ear canal. This protects your eardrums from excessive volume levels associated with 'in-ear' designs, and also provides a virtual surround sound experience that feels like the real thing.

Outside-the-ear design offers superior comfort during prolonged listening.
Non-intrusive earbuds are comfortable and stay in place even while exercising. On the go? Just slip the earphones into the protective storage pouch and slip them into your gym bag, purse or briefcase. Get a virtual home theater experience wherever you are—on the road, or at home.

Amazing audio in a comfortable, compact design. Order your Reverse Sound Earphones from Brookstone today!

This is my 2nd set, first lasted years but finally shorted out due to retractable wire wind-up thingy. Well worth the $ since I have trouble with ear buds. I'd also love to have a volume control on the wire. Shipping was pretty expensive for such a small item - but they did ship it in a way too big box... !!

Poor construction/ 3rd pair in one year

I jog a few miles every week. Purchased my first pair April of 2013. Brookstone has sent 2 replacements since then. This last pair lasted less then 2 months. I am really disappointed...Read complete review

I jog a few miles every week. Purchased my first pair April of 2013. Brookstone has sent 2 replacements since then. This last pair lasted less then 2 months. I am really disappointed in the quality of the construction. Brookstone's last replacement came with this statement "Cannot be returned if opened or used". Go figure.

    Comments about Reverse Sound Earphones:

    I love these earphones from Brookstone. But they only last about 1 year before the connection goes bad, or the buds fall off. Would love to get my third pair, but think it will follow the same course sadly. I have had the same problem on both pairs.

      Comments about Reverse Sound Earphones:

      I have been looking for earphones that don't go in the ear. While these are good quality and have a cushion around the earpiece, they are made to go in the ear. However, I simply place them on my ear and not in my ear and that seems to work fine. I primarily use them while working in my office.

        Comments about Reverse Sound Earphones:

        Great sound quality and fits well over the ear, but the wire going into the ear piece is too thin and easily breaks. I use these at night when I sleep and during the day. This is my 6th pair and I will keep buying more because I can't find this great sound quality in any other earphone. I just wish it wouldn't break every 9 months.

          Comments about Reverse Sound Earphones:

          Breaks easily where you don't get sound out of one ear. Brookstone charged me twice on my credit card and took a while for me to hear back from anyone, claim it's normal policy. It doesn't show up as pending, it's put though as a transaction.
