Sound Deadening Earphones
    #1310285 - 02/15/03 06:38 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Has anyone ever heard of these? They work by creating inverse sound waves from the environment around you and actually cancel out sound. I saw these on a tech show a few years back, and a guy could actually sit near a jackhammer and not hear it!

If anyone knows where to pick up one of these fine items, please let me know. I think it would be wonderful to trip in complete silence, it would reduce the paranoia knowing that whatever that sound was, it was all in my head. It would also be cool to see what it is like to be deaf...

That's cool and all but you would still feel the sound vibrations,particulary bass tones.As anyone that's ever tripped hard and gotten synethesia (blending of the senses) before, will know that our senses aren't as seperate as we normally think.

They are probably also very expensive.

it would make me more parinoid, be to worried about the sounds I am _NOT_ hearing.

Being as I have to use special headphones that plug into my hearing aids, I can switch my hearing aids to pick up only the sounds coming from my CD player, thus making all outside noise nonexistant to me while I'm listening to music. And it's great for tripping! I've never tripped with outside noise coming in, but I can tell you that's wonderful being able to listen to lush, quiet and very distinct music pieces without outside noise interrupting that.
The only other way for silence while tripping, is to go someone DEAD quiet with no sound to be heard for miles. Go camping or something and give it a shot.
As for the headphones, I can imagine they'd be expensive, but I'm sure prices would be cheaper as it became more common place and that feature might exist in some headphones already freely available?

Bose makes those.

I've tried them and they are quite nice. Cancel out all noises and work very well

tripping in dead silence would be an experience to have!

i think bose sells them for about 300

maximumpc did a review on some of these. your looking at between 75 and 200 bux. you get what you pay for. the good ones work spiffy and the shitty ones have a sound similar to tape hiss. maybe search their site www.maximumpc.com I have the mag but I happen to have all of them since the very 1st one (when they were called boot) and have no idea which one to look in.

On a school trip to the hospital we went to this room that was HUNDRED percent sound proof and echoless.  The room has two thick concrete walls with a layer of rubber inbetween and on the wall inside it was covered with these sound/echo absorbing "styrofoam" spikes.... so you could stand a meter infront of someone and SCREAM something and they would hear it as a wisper, plus the floor is a trampoline (technical reasons).  My teacher told me that if you were in that room long enough the mind would start concentrating on the sounds inside of the body.  My teacher was in that room for half an hour and he coukd hear his heart and lungs...etc... Imagine tripping in that room!

I bought me some huge fucking earcovering earphones to listen to Shpongle with next time I trip, those earcovering earphones are the best! :smile:
