ZONE: Preventing auditory overstimulation at work for autistic people.

Active noise canceling technology without the social barrier of headphones or earbuds. ZONE eliminates overstimulating sounds at work while allowing voices of customers and co-workers through. With the form factor and material aesthetic of an elevated work earpiece, ZONE lets customers know that they are being heard. An indicator light signals to coworkers whether ZONE is in active pass-through mode or full noise cancellation mode, eliminating uncertainty about when they can be heard.
