My name is Lewis Clay. I’m a father of three. With my partner Michelle, we run a plumbing and heating company, Clay Heating Services in Norfolk, England.

When I saw the IQbuds and I noticed you can manipulate what you hear, it just became a no brainer for me. They showed me how I could use them at work.

When you have these on, a tiny little water droplet can sound massive – like a hammer hitting an anvil.

It’s been amazingly useful to stand in the middle of the house and point at where a leak was 5 meters away. You go, yeah it’s over there.

You can set them to what you need. If I’m working with somebody else, I turn Speech up, which increases safety. And if I’m working with loud tools I turn the bass down.

While at work, I like to listen to music and still be able to hear everything around me and engage with customers.

I can take calls. I’m listening to songs I’ve listened to for 10, 15 years. I’m finding that there’s new instruments that I’ve never heard. My absolute favorite feature of the whole thing is World Off. When the world gets too loud or you just need a bit of space, one touch —

And you’ve got freedom. Being able to control what you hear around you is an absolute requirement to a safe working environment. It’s become an essential part of my entire life. Absolutely amazing.
