When we were alerted to the Sync headphones hitting the market at an inexpensive price point, we were intrigued. We decided to give them a review, particularly since Howard Leight appeared to be a division of Honeywell and bent on protecting ears and promoting safety in environments and conditions where the ears are assaulted by outdoor noise and high ambient SPLs. At Audioholics we care about your ears (as well as our own), so this seemed like a great product for the market. In particular, the Sync headphones were apparently designed to "manage" the output of portable devices (think iPods, etc) to a manageable 82dBA and perform sound isolation via isolation, making them a passive solution requiring no batteries.
