After several dives with the ProEar 2000, I have found the following benefits:
I do agree that for some reason, it seems to make it easier to equalize. I think this may have to do with the mass effect of water vs air, since the pressure remains the same with either in the ear canal and there is less mass in the external canal.
I think it would be helpful for both sport divers and saturation divers who have a problem with external otitis and for those diving in contaminated waters. The mask does have a strange appearance due to the ear cups and it does take some getting used to. I feel the benefits of the mask outweigh its unusual appearance
