A Small Assistive Technology Making Big Vibes

Featured on the television show Shark Tank in 2017, Vibes Hi-Fidelity Earplugs are a unique earplug originally designed for concertgoers who wanted to hear the music but protect their hearing. Unlike foam earplugs or over-ear muffs, Vibes doesn’t muffle the sound. Instead, they lower the volume to a more comfortable level while keeping the sound quality high.

After the airing of the Shark Tank episode, the founders of the company received hundreds of emails from individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, other sensory disorders, and their families. Vibes has been a game changer and as one user with autism said, “I love Vibes. I wear them everywhere. One of their best qualities is that I can hear someone speaking to me close up while still muting the ongoing horrible background roar.”

Vibes are not only effective at making loud environments more manageable; they are small and discrete. Because of their design and size, they are almost invisible to others. Each pair of Vibes comes with three sizes of interchangeable ear tips for any ear size, and a pocket-sized carrying case.

Users with sensory disorders are using them in movie theaters, school events, classrooms, school cafeterias, restaurants, parties - any loud environment!

Don’t just take my word for it. Watch this video below about how Vibes have changed everything for one family.
