Did you know shifts in barometric pressure are a common cause of severe headaches? While many of us may not have known this, those who suffer weather related migraines definitely do. Fortunately, WeatherX (@CIRRUShp) has developed pressure filtering earplugs for weather pressure changes. Inside the soft, hypoallergenic silicone exterior of the earplug is a built-in ceramic inner filter that slows down the shift in barometric pressure. Not sure when you’ll need to use your new plugs? WeatherX has an app for that which will send alerts on your phone ahead of a change in pressure.
