NECKBANDS…the PERFECT RESOLUTION!
Happy New Year!
Forty-five percent of Americans will make a resolution for the new year. Unfortunately, only 8% will achieve their goal. The difference between those who dream and those who achieve is perspective and focus.
Clarity and Hearing
Your ability to hear can impact your ability to focus. You rely on your sense of hearing to help you safely navigate the world and accomplish your tasks. However, more than 48 million Americans suffer from some degree of hearing loss.
Hidden Hearing Loss
Hidden hearing loss is damage to the delicate nerve endings in the inner ear. You may have an uncle who turns his television up way too loud, or the friend who hates going out because he can’t have a decent conversation in bars and restaurants. For the most part, their hearing is fine. They simply struggle to hear well when there is a lot of competing background noise.
While it is typically a mild condition, it’s also very common and can obstruct your progress as you pursue your goals. Fortunately, Lucid Audio has the solution. With the power of our patent pending AMPEDTM technology you can customize your sound experience to fit your needs. Turn up the volume of the world around you at the AND Control Center. Turn the volume all the way down when you need to concentrate. That’s the power of headphones and neckbands with amplification!
Enhance Your Abilities, Realize Your Dreams
- Are you trying to get back into shape by taking a walk every morning? Lucid’s headphones and neckbands allow you to enjoy your tunes AND amplify the sound of approaching traffic.
- Going back to school to finish your degree? Touch the button on your Lucid Audio headphones to amplify the lecture so you never miss a single word.
- Would you like to read more or learn a new skill in the new year? Take advantage of that long commute. Turn down the ambient noises, and expand your mind in quiet comfort or increase the ambient sounds to stay aware of your environment while pursuing your own educational goals.
Regardless of whether you need a little help or a lot, Lucid Audio’s headphones and neckbands with amplification can give you the benefit of your own personal listening device. Visit our website to explore the power of AMPEDTM and discover how we can help you reach your new year’s goals.
Bicycles let you exercise almost every muscle in your body simultaneously. Besides being great exercise, they are also a healthy and economical means of transportation. However, bicycle riding can be dangerous. In 2013, bicyclists accounted for 494,000 trips to the emergency room. Whether your path takes you through your favorite local park, or across busy rush hour intersections, stay alert to the sounds around you and remember some good sense tips to stay safe and sound.
Follow the Rules of the Road
- Obey all traffic signals and road signs, including lane markings
- Most state laws prohibit riding against the flow of traffic
- Wear bright, reflective colors
- Install reflectors on your bike
- Consider installing a headlight. It will improve your visibility while making you easier to see.
Stay Aware and Alert
- Keep items you need during your ride, like water bottles, in an easy to reach place.
- Look behind you frequently. Or, consider installing rearview mirrors.
- Consider purchasing a set of high-performance headphones with amplification. Lucid Audio’s headphones and neckbands enable you to turn up ambient sounds, up to 9x amplification. Turning up the sounds around you means you’ll never need to worry about the traffic behind you. Two hi gain omni directional microphones allows you to not only hear but enhance the sounds around you. You’ll never be taken by surprise again! You can enjoy your music, connect to incoming phone calls or check your messages with a simple touch of a button. All while staying aware of everything happening at a busy intersection or in the park. Switch easily between all of these functions without breaking your rhythm and stay safe on the road.
Communicate with Others on the Road
- Give hand signals as often as possible. Make your movements big, so you are sure to be seen.
- Make eye contact with passing drivers. This way you can be sure they see you before you make a potentially dangerous turn.
- A key aspect of communication is being able to hear and respond quickly to what’s happening around you. Lucid Audio’s headphones and neckband allow you to turn up the volume on the world around you so you can communicate effectively with other cyclists, pedestrians, and drivers while staying fit. Hear the honk of car horns and act accordingly. React safely near construction areas and hear those who may be trying to communicate with you while cycling. Hear all these sounds at a normal level or amplify them up to 9X. The choice is yours.
Unlike other neckbands or headphones with amplification, Lucid Audio devices actually increase your safety on the road. The powerful AMPEDTM technology keeps you alert and aware of all the sounds around you, regardless of how focused you are on your path.
Stay safe AND sound with Lucid Audio’s line of neckbands and headphones with amplification. Visit our website to see how this revolutionary technology can improve your riding time.
The first headphones manufactured specifically for music were invented by John C. Koss in 1958. His stereo headphones changed the way we listened to music and introduced a new era in personal audio.
Since that historic moment, personal audio technology has continued to evolve. Headphones with amplification have gotten louder, smaller, and lighter. Audio quality standards have also changed dramatically. The scratchy strains of the past would never be able to compete with even the lowest quality digital relays of today. One thing has remained the same for most of the headphones you see; they are still mainly used for music.

Imagine using the technology in headphones with amplification for more than just entertainment. Imagine using them to enhance your sense of hearing in a way that improves your daily life.
- In the college lecture halls of the future, everyone will be able to focus during class. One student can turn up the volume of the lecture with her Lucid Audio Neckband with amplification, while another student blocks out the entire world for more focus during test time.
- Work-at-home parents will be able to teleconference in peace, knowing that they can hear any suspicious sounds from their children in the other room. No sound at all coming from the next room? They will have the ability to turn up the ambient sound and hear every little giggle. And if they need to excuse themselves, they can control call volume and connection with a push of a button.
- Grandpa will never need to turn the TV down to please the rest of the family. He’ll simply use his Lucid Audio AMPED™ Bluetooth® wireless headphone or neckband with amplification to adjust the volume however he chooses.
- The future even looks healthier! Everyone will be able to access their audio comfortably and wirelessly, so there will be no excuse not to hit the gym.

What Do You Really Want?
Setting a meaningful goal can be difficult. Here are some tips to help you create real resolutions that you can actually achieve.
- Grab a piece of paper and spend 5 or 10 minutes writing about the changes you want to see in your life. What you learn could surprise you.
- Saying “I want to compete in a triathlon” may not be realistic. Make a list of the steps you need to take to accomplish your ultimate goal, and concentrate on them one at a time.

Stay the Course!
Setting goals creates a strong, but temporary, surge of motivation. To achieve your goals, you will need to keep yourself focused.
