Hushme is a personal acoustic device that protects speech privacy and reduces noise pollution when speaking on the phone in open space environment.
Hushme has three modes: normal headset mode, passive voice muffling mode and active voice masking mode.
Hushme – The World’s First Voice Mask For Smartphones. Personal acoustic device that protects speech privacy when speaking on the phone in open space offices and public places.
This device is not for punishment, nor was it designed to deny you pleasure. It is, however, meant to preserve the quality of life of the people around you… especially if you work in open offices like some of us at Engadget do.
The Hushme works as a pair of Bluetooth earbuds, but the real draw is the voice mask attached to them — they snap together in front of your mouth thanks to some surprisingly strong magnets, allowing you to take your phone calls in relative peace and quiet.
Even better, there are ways two ways that your conversations are shielded from the world at large.
A pair of thick cushy pads does a decent job muffling your voice, but the Hushme team added a series of sounds that play through some external speakers to obscure things even further.
I know what you’re thinking: Wouldn’t that also disrupt the peace and quiet around you?
You bet! Normally that would be a dealbreaker for a device tailor-made to keep the decibels down, but the list of available and forthcoming sounds might make the whole thing worth it.
What’s more, Hushme reps floated the idea of straight-up voice changing as a possibility, which is thematically a little silly when you consider the device’s goals.
Really, we’ll just have to wait and see — Hushme plans to get a crowdfunding campaign going this year, and the headset is expected to cost around $200.
