Quiet-player / Digital-player for quiet

Sometime, quiet is the most beautiful music in the world. It brings you calmness, concentration, and release.
In future, we will have a Quiet Player playing quiet for us, just like IPOD playing music for us!
Firstly, Quiet Player has 6 microphones collecting the sound waves beside you, then it plays reversed sound waves into your ears. The counteracting of those two sound waves can reduce much sound from outside.
Secondly, sound wave is a carrier of power. Quiet Player uses a special material as earphone cover, which can absorb much power of the sound wave, it will effectively stop the sound wave transmitting.
Let`s listen to the quiet!
