Antinoise VR Earmufflers

Experimental Urban VR Earmufflers were designed for people that suffer from any kind hypersensitivity to loud and irritating sounds (misophonia, Asperger’s or autism spectrum). They offer an unobtrusive and non-stigmatising design that resembles modern audio headsets.

The wearer is able to creatively shape VR soundscapes, that are produced by the headset to support wellbeing, while being able to hear surroundings (AR) for safety & awareness in noisy urban settings.

User can easily add different positive & natural sound sources that suits his mood or activity. Device can automatically block unwanted sounds using Machine Learning algorithms.
