To sooth is to provide or experience physical well-being or relief. It defines comfort, composure and tranquility.

Daily sound pollution from noisy surroundings and personal audio deteriorates the hearing unknowingly.

Soothing is a device to create awareness while simultaneously giving the ability to control the sound around us and enhance the hearing experience.

The device monitors your sound intake and displays it on your phone. Your phone will serve as a remote allowing you to control the sound you are hearing.

For example in a conversation you can filter background noises and highlight the voice of the person you are talking to.

Soothing is giving you and relieving you from sound.
