Whilst continuing my search for ways to decrease the noise I hear in today's (selfish) society, I came across QuietOn active noise-cancelling earplugs (https://quieton.com/). Does anyone on the forum own a pair? If so, please post a review in reply to this posting.
I know Bose are working on a pair of 'sleepbuds' (https://www.bose.com/en_us/better_with_bose/better_sleep.html) which take a different approach to QuietOn and are aimed at giving users better sleep. Unfortunately, the 'sleepbuds' will not be available until later this year.
I have a pair of Bose noise-cancelling headphones for indoor use and a set of 3M Peltor X5A ear defenders for general use, however, I cannot easily sleep in either.
I like active noise-cancelling because it produces a quieter environment than passive options, although I am also looking at a passive options (e.g. wax earplugs) for general use and for sleeping.
Any related comments will be much appreciated. Thank you.
Wow the QuietOn ones look really good. I too would be interested to know if anyone has tried them. I use noise-cancelling headphones all of the time as I have to commute into London and just would not be able to cope with the overload if I didn't. These look like a really good set! Also not having the trailing wires (mine are never plugged in to anything) would be nice
IN fact I was so interested in these that I just emailed them, to ask them if they have had any feedback from autistic users, and whether they are effective in reducing sensory overload. When I get a reply, I'll post again to let you know what they say!
Thank you. I feel rather stupid for overlooking contacting the company!
I figured it was worth an ask! I don't know whether they have any awareness of the problems too much sound poses for autistic people, so I have given them a brief explanation of why it is a problem for us - hopefully that will help them to explain whether these are likely to help us or not
love your kitten btw! Mine are a lot bigger, but still just as cute in my eyes :-)
Thank you. I should really change the picture as my current cat is a rescue cat 20 years old at some point this year.
Thank you very much letting know!
Noises are one of my biggest problem.
These would help me a lot!
Interesting, how much are they going to cost?
Amazon have five reviews for these earplugs - https://www.amazon.co.uk/QuietOn-Active-Noise-Cancelling-Plugs-white/dp/B071NSK5CY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1518627398&sr=8-1&keywords=QUIETON+ACTIVE+NOISE+CANCELLING+EARPLUGS
One user did say after a longer period of continuous usage, she says that some sort of whizzing sound can be heard ,
I have to say that they are quite expensive.
I will have to wait for the price to go down.
I had hoped they would be cheaper.
