Finnish innovation is on the way to world fame
In the city of Oulu in Northern Finland, known as Finland's Silicon Valley, startup companies are driving high paced innovation. One of these new startups is QuietOn Ltd., which is targeting the global market with their unique electronic earplugs that utilize active noise cancellation technology as well as passive acoustic attenuation.
The greatest benefit of active noise cancelling technology is that it is able to reduce the low frequency sounds that ordinary passive earplugs are not able to address.
"Our earplugs are particularly useful while sleeping, when snoring disturbs, traveling, or working in open plan offices and other noisy environments, such as in factories. QuietOn earplugs will help you relax and focus when in a noisy, stressful environment" says QuietOn's inventor Janne Kyllönen.
The earplugs are cordless and, when stored in their small carry case, can easily be carried in a pocket and recharged from a standard USB charger. "The starting point has been that even if our device is small, its performance must be on the same level as the best products on the market.
In addition, we aimed for as long use time as possible, and have achieved 50 hours of operation time between charges" Kyllönen says.
QuietOn has now completed product development on the first prototypes of their product, which have been extensively tested. The testimonials received from pilot users have been very positive and the company plans to start mass production in Europe in the spring. Prior to starting production, QuietOn is running a crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo, which will open on Wednesday, 13th of January. QuietOn tells more about the earplugs, and the story behind their creation on the Indiegogo page where the earplugs can also be pre-ordered.
"We hope that our product will be well received. Other Oulu, Finland developed products such as the Oura Ring and the Asmo charger have had successful funding campaigns on Kickstarter and Indiegogo, highlighting that with a good product, a start up can find customers globally. We're pressing forwards with positive energy" says Kyllönen confidently.
