A rebellious innovation developed by Nokia audio veterans. QuietOn Sleep Active Noise Cancelling technology has been optimized to cancel out low frequency sounds, especially snoring. The earplugs have fully in-ear design with ultra soft cushion covering the outside, providing superior comfort for sleepers. You can easily switch between sleeping and hearing modes whenever needed by one tap. QuietOn Sleep has been built of safe and friendly material.
When the husband is an inventor, his wife should be the one who gets to test the product first. Below is the feedback from Kaija – Janne’s wife.
The most common reason married couples sleep in separate rooms is due to the fact that one partner snores. Snoring impacts 25% of people in the U.S. on a regular basis and over 50% on an occasional basis. Cancel out the sound of snoring partner with QuietOn Sleep and enjoy the sleep next to your loved one.
Someone’s bliss can be another’s annoyance. Loud music from neighbors’ parties, lawn mower’s sound in early morning, train clanging from nearby traffic, airplane landing… There are millions of reasons to wake us up in the middle of a good night sleep. Shut out the external noise with QuietOn Sleep and enjoy the warm coziness of your own bed.
More and more of us spend several hours per day commuting between home and work. That adds up to hundreds of hours per year. Why don’t you spend the time well by taking a good rest with QuietOn Sleep and compensate for your sleep debt?
QuietOn Sleep with active noise cancelling technology has been optimized to enhance your good night’s sleep. QuietOn Sleep cancels out low frequency noises, which normal earplugs are not able to block.
Our engineering team analyzed hundreds of audio tapes including sounds of snoring, traffic and other noises coming though walls, to create the golden standard of active noise cancellation to suppress the sounds disturbing your sleep.
QuietOn Sleep active noise cancellation technology makes a big difference at low frequencies such as snoring sounds, music coming through walls and traffic noise of nearby streets. Structures like walls and building can reduce noises, but not so much with low frequencies.
Active noise cancellation uses a microphone to sample the sound, and a speaker to create a phase-shifted sound that cancels the original sound.
Traditional earplugs use passive attenuation to reduce the sound entering the ear. Whilst they are good at blocking high frequency sound, they are quite poor at reducing low frequency sound, especially below 500 Hz.
QuietOn earplugs combine the advantages of in-ear passive earplugs with active noise cancellation, providing optimal noise reduction across the whole audible spectrum. This makes QuietOn ideal for use in a variety of noisy environments.
Early 2015 – Janne and Matti – Nokia engineers founded QuietOn Ltd. to develop world’s premier Active Noise Cancelling earplugs.
March 2015 – Development of the first prototype of QuietOn active noise cancelling earplugs
2016 – Launch of the first Indiegogo campaign which was backed by 1.3 million USD for the manufacturing of QuietOn earplugs
End of 2016 – Thousands of pairs of QuietOn earplugs were successfully delivered to backers
2017 – rapid market expansion with more than 15,000 units having been shipped to 120 countries through various sales channels from B2B and Retail to E-commerce.
QuietOn earplugs are delivered to various retail channels and start gaining foothold on the market. QuietOn receives overwhelmingly good response from several different types of user bases, including aviation, industrial and dental users.
End of 2017 – Development of the next QuietOn starts
While QuietOn earplugs receive great praise from many types of users, people willing to use them for sleeping have also discovered a few disadvantages. Some of them experience first generation of QuietOn slightly too big to wear while sleeping with your head on the pillow. 1st gen QuietOn can also trigger a beeping sound while pointing pressure at the plug while the head is placed on the pillow.
After analyzing the user feedback, QuietOn team defines the main development points. Sleeping earplug needs to be extremely small and comfortable to guarantee a good night’s sleep. QuietOn team drafts a device 40% smaller and 50% lighter than 1st gen QuietOn. The device is covered by a soft cushion to make it feel nice and comfortable in the ear. The active noise cancelling performance is optimized for snoring frequencies and sounds coming through walls to make the device stand out from any other earplug on the market. The device is named QuietOn Sleep.
QuietOn has grown into a company employing people of six different nationalities. QuietOn team is a combination of the hardcore engineering knowledge and experience gained at Nokia and the youth and passion of fresh graduates.
