We live in a noisy world. The global phenomenon of ever increasing environmental noise affects everyday lives and is one of the factors impacting general wellbeing. Noise has been diagnosed as a major cause of hearing loss, insomnia, increased stress levels and other health related problems. To tackle the universal noise pollution, two Finnish engineers developed revolutionary digital earplugs QuietOn. We partnered with QuietOn to bring this world class product to Canada” says Sharad Ojha, the CEO of Clinic Management Services.
Noise pollution around us is ever growing. Often, we don’t realize that permanent hearing damage can develop after exposure to just one incidence of extreme noise or after listening to loud sounds over time. Sound is measured in decibels (dB). We typically converse at around 60 dB, and that is a safe level of sound. But while watching a game in a stadium or while enjoying a rock concert, we are potentially exposed to noise levels in the range of 100- 180 dB. These are dangerous levels of noise and it only takes a minute to 30 minutes of exposure to cause permanent damage to our hearing.
Our lifestyle also forces us to be exposed to excess noise for example being in heavy traffic, listening to loud music, riding a motorcycle, passing subway car, standing on the GO station, frequenting noisy bars, mowing our lawns. All these situations are associated with noise levels that could impact our health. There are ranges of sounds we probably didn’t know, create havoc in our ears. In short, not only extreme loud noises but repeated exposure to higher decibels begins to destroy the nerve endings in inner ear permanently and cause multiple health issues.
Recent studies show that loud music plus music blasted directly into the ears via earphones, have resulted in an alarming increase of hearing damage and tinnitus (ringing in the ears) in teenagers. All this is preventable, if we don’t overload our ears.
A very effective product to deal with noise is QuietOn. It is a one-of-a-kind digital earplug combining active noise cancellation and acoustic noise attenuation to bring you a bubble of quietude in a world full of distractions.
The microphone in QuietOn samples the sound 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. For instance, airplane cabin noise sounds like a faint hum with QuietOn earplugs. The earplugs significantly reduce stress level caused by constantly noisy environments.
Ultra-lite QuietOn earplugs provide noise reduction on the same level as the best on-ear noise cancelling headphones. The active noise cancellation of QuietOn is especially focused on reducing low frequency
‘bass’ noise that is not addressed by normal earplugs. This top-class noise cancellation performance comes with up to 50 hours battery life on a single charge. Comfortable, ergonomic and
wireless, QuietOn is small enough for sleeping with your head on a pillow, portable as the case fits easily in a pocket and automatic as they switch on when removed from the charging case.
Good news is that, we have a great solution to tackle noise. For more information on QuietOn, or to order please visit hearableworld.com or thecms.ca
