QuietOn is a newly developed electronic earplug that utilises active noise cancellation technology in addition to passive acoustic attenuation.
 
The greatest benefit of the active noise cancelling technology is a reduction in low frequency sounds that ordinary passive earplugs are not able to address.
 
Its developer, QuietOn Ltd, is one of the start-up companies driving the high-paced innovation in Oulu, the Silicon Valley of Finland.
 
With this unique electronic earplug, QuietOn Ltd targets the global market. “Our earplugs are particularly useful while sleeping, travelling, or working in open plan offices and other noisy environments, such as in factories. QuietOn earplugs will help you relax and focus when in a noisy, stressful environment,” explained QuietOn’s inventor Janne Kyllönen.
 
The earplugs are cordless and, when stored in their small carry case, can easily be carried in a pocket and recharged from a standard USB charger.
 
“The starting point has been that, even if our device is small, its performance must be on the same level as the best products on the market. In addition, we aimed for as long a use-time as possible, and have achieved 50 hours of operation time between charges,” Kyllönen said.
 
QuietOn Ltd has now completed product development on the first prototypes of their product, which have been extensively tested. The testimonials received from pilot users have been very positive and the company plans to start mass production in Europe in the spring.
 
Prior to starting production, the company is running a crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo, which opened on the 13th of January. QuietOn Ltd tells more about the earplugs, and the story behind their creation on the Indiegogo page where the earplugs can also be pre-ordered. The page link is: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/quieton-active-noise-cancelling-earplugs.
 
“We hope that our product will be well received. Other Oulu, Finland-developed products such as the Oura Ring and the Asmo charger have had successful funding campaigns on Kickstarter and Indiegogo, highlighting that with a good product, a start-up can find customers globally. We’re pressing forwards with positive energy,” said Kyllönen in a confident voice.
