Earplugs for autism
Imagine an orchestra – without a conductor.
So instead of hearing one beautiful, harmonious blend of music, you hear a thunderous, complicated mess of individual instruments, invading your senses all at once. Sound familiar?
Autism and sensory overload often go hand in hand. Not only can it be exhausting, but it can be overwhelming and disruptive. Here’s what we know:
There are triggers everywhere
You know the feeling. When all the sensory info in a room combines: office chatter. Traffic outside. Background music. Sudden laughter. A clothing label scratching at your neck.
For autistic people, this can trigger sensory overload.
What does this lead to?:
- Intense Anxiety
- A need to escape the situation
- Difficulty communicating
Sometimes sensory overload is the result of a single event, like an unexpected bang. It can also be the result of a buildup of things over time.
When it hits, it can make things like speech and decision making extremely difficult. Because when the brain has to put all of its effort into processing what's going on, it sometimes has to shut off other functions in the process.
The unfortunate truth is that much of the world’s not set up to accommodate autistic peoples’ needs.
At Loop, we’re working actively to change that.
Our earplugs for autism
Earplugs to turn down the volume
Noise sensitivity is challenging. For many people it interferes with work, relationships and socializing. Thanks to Loop, it’s increasingly easy to manage it.
Gone are the days of giant headphones that block and muffle sound – we’ve been busy designing the best noise-reducing earplugs for autism. Check out Loop Experience and Loop Engage. Here’s the lowdown:
For extra protection, these autism earplugs reduce noise by up to 18 decibels. They feature an innovative acoustic channel that works to filter outside noise – making them the ideal noise-canceling earplugs for autism. But don’t worry – you’ll still hear all the important stuff and sound quality will never suffer.
Loop Engage are designed with conversation in mind. They offer up to 16 decibels of coverage and are designed to limit the ‘occlusion effect.’ Which is that echoey, head-underwater feeling you get with most earplugs. They’re the perfect noise-reducing earplugs for autism as they reduce sensory overload without impacting your ability to chat and connect. Allowing you to remain present, calm, and focused.
Both of them
° Offer maximum comfort, fitting snugly into all types of ears
° Come in 4 unique colors
° Include a handy Carry Case
° Are recommended for anyone over the age of 12 – so they’re ideal for older children too.
The best for a social gathering
I tried the new Loop Engage Plus at a restaurant. I could finally sit back, enjoy the conversations, and not feel overwhelmed. An amazing solution for all the noise-sensitive communities as well as just for social gatherings.- Ariana S.
I'm a universitystudent and suffer from autism. So I'm oversensitive when it comes to unwanted noises. My Loop Experience Plus earplugs allow me to "ignore" gossiping of my classmates in the room, but still allow me to listen to my professors. Thank you for making my lifemore manageable again.- Vendula B.
