Ear Hat - Connected 3.0

Ear Hat 3.0The newest Ear Hats, Connected 3.0, are a radical departure from the previous Ear Hats.  First off, they have a new pattern.  Pass.  They aren't as tall as the previous version.  The last ones were around 3" tall and these look to be around 2.5" tall.  Both have the same diameter, around 7" but the new ones have a lot less foam liner.  The upside of that change is that they may fit some adult heads a little better.
