The DryEar was designed by Dr. Hamilton Collins who is apparently a well-known ear, nose and throat specialist to help combat Swimmers Ear and other ear infections. Since they’re normally caused by excess moisture that remains in the ear after bathing or water sports the DryEar delivers a gentle 80-second stream of warm air directly into the ear canal theoretically drying them out.
The DryEar itself is a compact unit that can fold away for easy storage or travel and thankfully includes four color-coded earpieces so it can be safely used by multiple family members. The DryEar is currently available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $99.95.
