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.

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.


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

Active Noise Cancelling

To ensure the user can isolate themselves from sensory overloading situations, the earphones have been equipped with noise canceling to properly separate them from external sounds.

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.

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