Ear canal headphone, Esfera EHP-EIN110 Series Esfera is a headphone with excellent sound quality featuring a 13.0 mm large-diameter driver unit. This series is designed considering not only sound quality but also comfortableness when worn. In search of an ideal earbud shape that creates a perfect fit in the ears, a novel design has been developed by focusing on three structural features of the human ear: the tragus (triangular flap of cartilage at the entrance of the ear canal), ear canal size and ear canal angle. While the earphone body features deep matte metallic colors, an aluminum cap is attached on the connection between the earphone body and bush over the cable. Due to its striking design, the earphone has a glamorous and elegant style.

Fatigue-relieving mouse pad, FITTIO MP-115 series, MP-116 series FITTIO is a mouse pad jointly developed with the Yokohama Rehabilitation Center to alleviate user fatigue associated with mouse operation. Designed by focusing on the following four aspects: angle, height, shape and material, a FITTIO mouse supports the natural movement of the user's hand with the right angle and height to operate the mouse, and disperses body pressure most effectively with the right shape and material. In this way, the series reduces strain on the wrist and other parts of the body during operation of a mouse for a long period of time, and thereby alleviates user fatigue. We at ELECOM hope that FITTIO will help many users by reducing their fatigue caused by mouse operation.
