Polar Fusion Sound Flips- A Top 10 Hot New Consumer Product Invention

Press Release

Three industry authorities (the United Inventors Association, Inventors' Digest magazine, and The Academy of Applied Science) announce Polar Fusion SoundFlips are one of the 2003/2004 Top 10 Hot New Consumer Product Inventions. Polar Fusion SoundFlips are revolutionary acoustic ear warmers that open for sound.

The Top 10 inventions were selected after the initial filed of more than 400 new product inventions was exhaustively evaluated and narrowed to 34 semi-finalists. To keep the competition as fair as possible, the initial field and the semi-finalists were scrutinized by different teams of judges.

The inventions were submitted by inventors across the United States into the organizations National New Products Hunt call for entries held during August to celebrate National Inventors' Month. The search was sponsored by the Proctor & Gamble Company.

Inventor and entrepreneur Spring Faussett of Mountlake Terrace, Washington, age 33, invented the product after experiencing painfully cold ears while running one cold winter day. Faussett's patent pending invention—Polar Fusion SoundFlips—is designed for safety and engineered for performance. Polar Fusion SoundFlips feature exclusive sound doors that 'flip' open to help a person hear. Sounds, such as approaching bicycles and cars—even the faint sound of a pin dropping—can be heard more clearly.

According to the UIA Executive Director Robert Lougher, "The submissions we received were diverse and exceptionally well developed. Independent inventors have been the backbone of our economy since the founding of this great country; and new products mean new industries, and new industries mean new jobs."

In addition to the accomplishment of being a Top 10 Hot New Consumer Product Invention, Polar Fusion SoundFlips were also named a 2003 SGMA/SPORTS EDGE "Sports Product of the Year" Finalist (sponsored by e-Bay Sports).

"I know the competition was very intense so it is a great honor to be one of the top 10 inventions in the United States," said Faussett. "This event marks a great milestone for our company and we know this recognition will help propel us to reach our distribution goals of entering into all sizes of fitness- and outdoor-focused retailers across the United States."

Polar Fusion SoundFlips are ideal for walkers, joggers, bicyclists, skiers, golfers, hikers, and more, because they feature a wrap-around headband that won't interfere with activities, open-ear helmets, hats, glasses, or hairstyles. In addition, the comfortable, non-slip design keeps the ear warmers in place for extended wear in all activities – meaning tension head and jaw aches are a thing of the past.

Polar Fusion SoundFlips do not have the "winter" look of traditional ear warmers because they are designed for weather between 60 and 20 degrees Fahrenheit. This makes the product a tri-season product because the mean temperature (excluding wind chill) drops below 60 degrees Fahrenheit six to eight months a year in most states (from late September through early May).

As an option, Polar Fusion also offers a stereo headphone version, featuring built-in speakers and a universal jack, which will plug into any personal music device that accepts headphones. The stereo headphone version shares all of the same features as the standard version, including the ability to let the sound in.

MADE IN USA with US and imported components, Polar Fusion SoundFlips are available for purchase at in both charcoal black and slate gray. Cost for the standard version is $29.95 and cost for the headphone version is $39.95. For additional information, call 206.779.5238, e-mail [email protected], or visit Images available upon request.
