A look into the surprisingly popular world of ‘spy’ gadgetry
British comedian Jack Dee probably said it best, “Men like to use drills because secretly, we think they’re guns”. Tools just bring out our inner 007.
He’s right. Men like gadgets for the same reason. We can’t deny it, there’s just something unassailably cool about a tool that you can use, but that no one else knows about.
Whether you’re prancing around your house pointing a Black & Decker at imaginary henchmen, or fondly imagining that your fountain pen doubles as some sort of deadly offensive weapon, its OK to admit that you like the idea of gadgets.
If you’re reading this and nodding, then you are almost certainly a man (or else, a bit of a Tomboy, which is fine too). In which case, you probably found this article whilst searching for a ‘spy earpiece’ online. Ergo, the sort of person who buys a spy earpiece is, well, someone just like you.
If, however, you clicked this page because you want to know what sort of person uses such a device (or indeed, what, if any, its practical applications are), then you’ve come to the right place, ma’am.
Its not all James Bond wannabes, you know.
Business professionals cunningly utilize spy earpieces to receive information in real time as they negotiate huge deals and contracts. They also employ such gadgets when giving lengthy and complex presentations to superiors or potential customers. This goes double (or even triple) for public speakers.
Security personnel will also use spy earpieces, as surprising as that may be to read. Often, the security professional is used as a deterrent; large, imposing men and women are geared up with walkie talkies and sharp suits or black uniforms in order to encourage would-be troublemakers to think twice. However, it is also common for security guards to operate in plain clothes, keeping an eye on potential situations discreetly and quietly. For this, they use a spy earpiece. For the same reasons, even undercover police have been known to employ spy earpieces.
Then, of course there are students (yes, we had to get to it eventually). Spy earpieces are a great way to cheat on your exams AND feel like James Bond at the same time. Of course, we’d never condone the use of our products in such a way, but nevertheless, it does happen. Amazingly, the time spent preparing a reliable body of information and then having an accomplice drip feed the correct answers to you via the earpiece would probably be better spent actually learning the material in the first place. However, students can also use spy earpieces in presentations in much the same way that businesspeople do.
Recently, we’ve come across articles online which suggest that even the unemployed are getting in on the act, using spy earpieces in job interviews in order to come across as qualified and knowledgeable.
So, the spy earpiece appeals to more than just the gadget-crazed would-be 007. Spy earpieces are used by a broad cross-section of the community, not just by men with a little too much time on their hands!
