Comma Buds

The ear buds promote mental well being through leveraging the benefits of music and breathing exercises through the portability and easy accessibility of truly wireless technology.

The Comma Ecosystem for Audio Respiratory Therapy

The Earbuds

Allows the user to adjust their preferences regarding the earbuds as well as the audio-respiratory exercises.

The Comma App

Crafted for subtlety, the minimalistic design ensures they are inconspicuous and suitable for any setting. With active noise-canceling technology, they offer true isolation from their surroundings.

The Case

Made to facilitate portability with a minimal footprint making it easy to take anywhere and therefore always ready for use. It features two pulsating LEDs to guide users through the audio-respiratory exercises.

Active Noise Cancelling

The earbuds contain advanced hybrid active noise cancellation (ANC) to ensure the user can isolate themselves from sensory overloading situations, and focus on the music.

Music Can Provide

Brainwave Entrainment

The brain naturally syncs its brainwaves with external rhythmic sounds.

Mood Regulation

Different types of music can have different effects on the brain.

Distraction

Music can lead the mind away from pain or stressful stimuli.

Breathing Exercises Can Help Achieve

Parasympathetic Activation

Slow, deep breathing can activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for the body's "rest and digest" functions. This counteracts the stress-induced sympathetic "fight or flight" response.

Mindfulness and Grounding

Focusing on one's breath brings attention to the present moment, grounding the individual and providing a break from overwhelming stimuli or thoughts.

Proper Oxygenation

Proper breathing ensures optimal oxygenation, which can enhance mental clarity and reduce feelings of fatigue or dizziness.

Comma App Settings

The user can then adjust if they want music to automatically play when they insert the earphones

Select which combination of music and breathing exercises they want based on recommended combinations tailored to achieve the best combined results or edit it to create their own combination or exercise

And adjust the level of noise cancelation as well as when it is active to decide when the user wants to be isolated

Retreating to Effectively Move Forward

Step back into a melody, take a breath, so that you can peacefully return to taking your next stride forward.

Technology For Wellbeing

Technology is often detrimental to mental health, but not because it’s an innate consequence of technology, it is the form of application.

Lets continue to leverage the capacity of technology to foment well-being in society!
