It’s not entirely clear if that means just the ear tips or the entire earpiece, but the fine print is careful to point out that while the system is over 99% effective against E. coli and bacteriophage viruses, and more 90% effective against Staphylococcus aureus, will not kill all bacteria and viruses, and Audio-Technica does not know how well it protects against the virus that causes COVID-19.
