Hushh / Earphone


Hushh is a pair of earphones aims at calming autistic children down and gradually get used to this boisterous world. Like normal children, they need outing, keeping in touch with people and building up interpersonal relationship. However, a great number of them are suffering from auditory disturbance, the most common one is over-sensitive auditory sense. Instead of just muting them away from all sound sources or locking them at home, Hushh means to briefly fill their ears with soothing musics originated from nature, which are said to have the power of comfort and calming. In this case, Hushh is not designed to wear all-time.
