With all the great quality sound all around us Ear Protection and Living in a Digital World is a challenge.
Foam earplugs and over-ear earmuffs have long been the standard methods for making individuals on the autism spectrum that are sensitive to sound more comfortable in loud environments.
While they do block out the loud noises, they make it impossible for individuals to hear anything at all.
Not hearing noises can be a safety concern.
And, along with the stigmatization of their sometimes bright, bulky appearance, can inhibit social interaction.
While they were originally created for use at concerts, Vibes Hi-Fidelity Earplugs (as seen on ABC’s Shark Tank) are an excellent alternative to traditional types of hearing protection for individuals with autism who are sensitive to sound.
Sound Quality is Preserved
Instead of blocking and muffling sounds, Vibes use acoustic filtering technology to lower the volume of your environment to more comfortable levels, while still allowing you to hear everything clearly and interact socially.
Vibes allow individuals on the autism spectrum to be comfortable in environments like school cafeterias, public transportation, parties, airports, family gatherings, restaurants, theme parks, etc.
Otherwise these environments will feel overwhelmingly and painfully loud. Vibes allows the individual to hear and experience the world around them.
Instead of being bright and bulky, Vibes have a low-profile, clear design that makes them virtually invisible.
Low visibility makes it possible to be discreet about wearing hearing protection in public.
Vibes are reusable, are able to be cleaned, and each pair includes a pocket sized carrying case.
Each pair includes three sizes of soft, interchangeable ear tips to ensure a comfortable fit for different sized ears.
Attachable cords are available on Amazon, which help prevent losing the earplugs, and allow them to be hung around the neck.
Vibes can be purchased for $23.99 on www.discovervibes.com.
