1. Is the Ultra really better than the Original Ear Band-It®?
Yes, although the Original Ear Band-It® is an awesome product. It performed great the last 20 years but it was just time to make improvements based off all the knowledge we gathered from Original Ear Band-It® users. The Ultra has better grip, comfort, and strength. If you want the best possible headband on the market… go with the Ear Band-It Ultra®.
2. Are the available colors really bright?
Yes, the Green, Yellow, Orange, and Pink are bright neon colors. The Blue is bright but probably not considered neon.
3. Is the Ultra reversible like the Original Ear Band-It®?
No, due to the patent pending Grip-Tek (TM) neoprene inner lining the Ear Band-It® Ultra is not reversible.
4. Is the Ear Band-It® Ultra waterproof?
No, neoprene is not a waterproof material, although it will keep the majority of water out of the ear canal. The purpose of the band it to hold ear plugs or ear molds in place to form a watertight system. The Ear Band-It® Ultra should not be worn by itself if the intent is to prevent water from entering the ear canal.
5. Can you dive with the Ear Band-It® Ultra?
We do not recommend diving head first with the Ear Band-It® Ultra as the band may come off the head. However it does have the best grip of any swimmer’s headband on the market. It is much more likely to stay on during vigorous water activities. Swimming and jumping in the water feet first are not a problem.
