Difficulty equalising and the possibility of getting an ear infection are problems that can happen to any diver, regardless of their experience. It can become serious enough to stop one from diving.
The IST ProEar Mask Black Silicone is manufactured to the highest standard and only the best materials are used. It is designed to counter most of the unavoidable effects pressure and water have on the ears.
• D: Ear covers
The soft silicone ear covers form a water tight seal between the ear drum and the cover. The pressure buffer creates the same pressure as your nasal cavity mask pocket, when air exhaled through the nose is introduced through the equalization tubes. Therefore the ear pressure in the middle and outer area is the same and the “squeeze” from the ambient perssure will be significantly reduced. Other benefits from keeping the ears sealed also include reducing the chance of an ear infection from water, plus improved sense of direction and warmth retention.
• E: Equalizing tubes
With one-way valves placed inside each tube, air is allowed to travel only from the mask to the ear covers for pressure equalization and water clearance, while stopping water from flooding the mask in the unlikely event of flooded ear covers.
．Pressure equalization is easier achieved!
．Prevents pressure induced earache (barotrauma)
．Enhanced underwater hearing and sense of direction
．Stops dirty / polluted water from entering the ear, causing infection
．Increased warmth around the ear in cold conditions
