QuietOn earplugs combine the advantages of in-ear passive earplugs with active noise cancelling, providing optimal noise reduction across the whole audible spectrum, especially effective at these low frequencies. This makes QuietOn ideal for use in a variety of noisy environments.
Traditional earplugs use passive attenuation to reduce the level of sound entering the ear. Whilst they are good at blocking high frequency sound, they are quite poor at reducing low frequency sound, especially below 200 Hz. Such low frequency sounds include airplane noise, traffic noise, snoring, music coming through the wall, environmental noise from industrial sites and engine noise from a motor vehicle.
QuietOn is a one-of-a-kind earplug combining active noise cancellation and acoustic noise attenuation to create silence
QuietOn suppresses snoring and noises coming through walls, which normal soft foam earplugs can’t achieve. QuietOn lets you sleep better and improves capability to fall asleep.
Switch an exhausting flight to relaxing break. Improve your wellbeing by reducing stress brought upon by continuous background noise while traveling.
In full-size on-ear noise cancelling headphones the microphone element is located outside the ear. However, in QuietOn, the microphone that samples the sound is located right inside the ear canal! This means that QuietOn can more accurately produce anti-noise that results in good noise cancellation at the ear drum. By locating the microphone in the air volume of the ear canal, QuietOn is also able to reduce noise that is conducted by the skull into the ear.
Active noise cancelling uses a microphone to sample the sound, and a speaker to create a phase-shifted sound that cancels the original sound.
The passive part of the noise cancellation works as an old fashioned passive earplug. In addition to that we have active noise cancellation, which is very effective at attenuating noise below 1 kHz in frequency. Some examples of this low frequency noise are music or traffic sound coming through the walls, engine sound or snoring.
Normal earplugs are comfortable, but unfortunately they are not able to block low frequency noise. QuietOn is the only device that can block low frequency noise and still be used whilst sleeping with the head on pillow.
