Product Description
 
Not just the world’s BEST ear protector mask: the world’s ONLY protector mask.

Seavenger.com is the exclusive authorized online dealer for the unique and iconic IST Pro Ear Mask Series. We always stock a full inventory of all models: 4-Windows Panorama, the 2000 series, Kids ProEar Masks and ProEar Single lens versions.

Available only from Seavenger.com are the various colors such as blue, clear blue, yellow, neon yellow and pink; prescription lenses are also available, as are models for every facial type and preference including kids and small face, Dual Window, 4-Window and Single Lens models.

When it comes to eardrum safety, protection and comfort, there is literally nothing remotely comparable to its revolutionary patented design. The ProEar completely seals off your ears from the surrounding water and air is introduced with the exhalation from your nose. Mask, silicone ear cups, equalization tubes and your whole respiratory system become a coordinated closed-circuit equalized air pressure system. The result: equal pressure inside and outside the ear drum. ProEar is leagues ahead of anything available.

All the Pro Ears feature tempered glass dual lenses with crystal-clear silicone skirts. But what makes Pro Ear so unique is its unusual ear cover design -- a pair of ear pods connected to the air space inside the mask via a pair of equalization tubes. Ear problems are eliminated, as are ear-infection dangers.

• Pressure equalization can be achieved easier and less frequently
• Enhanced underwater hearing and sense of direction.
• Stops polluted water from entering the ear causing infection.
• Dramatically reduces heat loss from the diver's head.

 Free Mask Pouch

World's ONLY practical ear protector for Divers!
The Pro Ear mask is not just another mask but is indeed an entirely new concept in diving safety and comfort. Thesilicone ear cups, equalization tubes and strap configuration take some time to get used to but after one or two dives the Pro Ear becomes as natural and comfortable then the standard mask.

Pro Ear Summery
Diving related ear problems are universal, irrespective whether the diver is a beginner or a professional. To counter the pressure induced discomfort, the Pro Ear mask to offset the ill effect and to increase the enjoyment of time underwater.

Pro Ear mask will take a little time to get used to, with its silicone ear cups, equalization tubes and strap configuration.It is highly recommend that a Pro Ear mask beginner should try this mask in a pool or controlled environment before taking it on a dive odyssey.

The ear cups cover the ears forming a water tight seal. Air is allowed into the ear cups when exhaling through the nose into the mask and then through the thin tubing (which mimic the Eustachian tubes) which runs from the mask skirt into the ear cups while passing through the non return valves in the tubes. This allows the air space in the ear cups to equalize according to ambient pressure. The mask, ear cups and indeed the entire respiratory system become a closed circuit equalized air pressure system.

Here's some of the examples you can benefit from Pro Ear
Symptom
Cause
Benefits
Ear Pain





Middle ear Barotraumas ("Ear Squeeze") - pain caused by failure to equalize pressures between the outer and middle ear. Caused by blockage in the Eustachian tube. Pressures cannot be equalized and the eardrum is forced inward causing considerable pain, bleeding into middle ear and sometimes rupture of the eardrum.
Preliminary results from multiple dives indicate easier pressure equalization. Possibly explained by lack of stimulation of tympanic membrane and the resultant middle-ear secretions.
Infection or inflammation of the outer ear canal

Otitis external - Exposure to water dilutes the ear's protective lining and exposes it to infection. Polluted water entering the ear canal carries bacteria and irritant chemicals.
Absolute protection from water and pollutant entry will provide effective prevention.

Middle ear inflammation


Otitis media - Inflammation due to poor drainage and collection of fluids in the middle ear and Eustachian tube.


Lack of tympanic membrane stimulation may obviate problems with drainage of middle-ear secretions.
Inability to discern the direction of sound



Diminished function of the calibration of the ear, which is built to function in an air environment.



No mechanism as yet to explain this surprising but consistent observation. Extremely important for divers ascending into busy sea lanes, potentially avoiding accidents.
Dizziness (vertigo) and loss of direction

Due to caloric stimulation or to damage to the inner ear which affects balance.

Avoidance of cold water stimulation of the tympanic membrane, which produces the vertigo.
Build up of bony deposits in the outer ear

Exostoses - The body's mechanism for protecting the eardrum from the adverse effects external trauma like pressure, cold, etc.

Avoidance of cold water stimulation of the external ear canal will undoubtedly prevent exostoses entirely.

 

How does the ProEar mask function?

 

The squeeze we feel during a dive is caused by the imbalance of pressure either side of the ear canal. While our ear canal is exposed to water and ambient pressure, our middle ear (which is on the other side of the ear drum and is connected to our nasal cavity by Eustachian tube) is still filled with air and experiences less pressure. The greater external force is able to push our ear drum inward, causing discomfort or pain.

With a ProEar mask, the ears are completed sealed off from the outside and air, at the same pressure as your nasal cavity, is able to be introduced through the Equalization Tubes into the Ear Covers. Therefore the pressure on both sides of the ear drum becomes equal. So as pressure and depth increase, the simple act of breathing air into your Ear Covers can significantly improve your enjoyment of diving.

FULL MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY

 
Question Is this the very latest manufacturer's model of the Pro-Ear series? Does it come in different colors? Thanks for a speedy reply?
Answer It does come in two colors: Black and Clear Blue




Question Hi, my R/L prescription is -1.5 and -0.5. Should I get -1.5 and -1.0 or -1.5 and no prescription? (or -1.0 and no prescription?)
Answer We recommend you go for the -1.5 and 0, for the reason that we usually recommend the lessor strength lenses.




Question Are there different sizes? I've had issues with masks hurting the bridge of my nose.

Thank you in advance for your reply, Cameron

Answer




Question This mask can have a prescription in the lens. All I need is a reading prescription. Can this be done so that when I look down the script is there to read and then when I look up I can see for distance, like a bifocal?
Answer Sorry, We don't have the bifocal lenses.
It can only be either reading or distance.

Be prepared to get laughed at cause it looks goofy. I had to fold my ear lobes up to fit in the cups because of ear rings.

Had no problem equalizing with it, and it kept my ears perfectly dry. Not uncomfortable either, although I never tried it with a hood.

Submited By: Hans Falk on 08/19/2009
I was very excited when I received my new Pro Ear mask. I have constant difficulty in clearing my ears and I was hoping that this new mask would make my dives more enjoyable. I tried the mask first in a pool and it did take some getting used to - but only because my previous mask had a purge valve in the nose and I frequently would blow excess water out during a dvie. Obviously without a purge valve, blowing out through your nose is the last thing you want to do on a dive! So I had to relearn a few things. It did not take long however and soon felt very comfortable with the mask. I then tried it on a dive to 60 feet and have to tell all who are considering purchasing this mask for the reasons I did - it does NOT eliminate the need to clear your ears. I still experienced some discomfort and was not able to descend as quickly as my buddy. Whether or not a regular mask would have given me more trouble I cannot say but the Pro Ear is not a total solution. I do intend to keep using it however and feel that the design does help with the ear clearing problem, it just does not eliminate it.
