IFA 2018 is set to be used as the launch vehicle for a pair of snore cancelling ear buds.
Developed by ex-Nokia engineers the devices can block out audio irritations with a frequency below 500 Hz and that includes snoring.
The new $159 headphones were developed after designers analysed hundreds of snoring audio tapes including sounds of snoring, traffic, and other noises coming through walls.
The results are a set of earbuds with active noise cancellation that uses a microphone to sample the sound, and a speaker to create a phase-shifted sound that cancels the original sound.
Research shows that snoring impacts 25 percent of people on a regular basis and over 50 percent on an occasional basis.
These noise cancelling buds not only reduce snoring problems but also eliminate other irritating sounds such as traffic noise.
The buds are made with a soft foam cushion, and with a simple tap the modes can be altered from ‘sleeping’ to ‘hearing’, they are also excellent for listening to music.
The QuietOn Sleep deliver around have 20 hours of battery life and the carrying case doubles as a charging station like the Jabra buds.
‘QuietOn earplugs combine the advantages of in-ear passive earplugs with active noise cancellation, providing optimal noise reduction across the whole audible spectrum,’ the Company claims.
