Spotted: Background noise in workplaces can be very distracting and have an impact on productivity, particularly with many of us now working from home. From printers constantly operating to phones ringing, startup River LLC’s office is no exception: many employees resorted to wearing regular earplugs that were uncomfortable and did not offer volume control. This motivated the team to come up with a solution — Veer Earplugs. Designed for those whose performance is affected by background noise, the earplugs do not require charging and are waterproof. Veer is fitted with a noise cancellation controller, allowing the user to suppress the noise in their surroundings within the range of 5 to 40 dB.

Without any need for electronics, Veer Earplugs offer passive noise cancellation reached by a special mechanism inside the body that allows the change of the aperture ratio. They do not create complete silence but make the ambient noise more comfortable to endure and much less harmful. The earplugs also include a sound effuser, which retains audibility when the aperture is open. This eliminates the necessity of taking them out if the user needs to talk to someone or answer a phone call.

The Veer Earplugs are made from a super-soft silicone that is comfortable to wear all day, and the kit comes in several sizes for different ears. Furthermore, it does not create a vacuum feel, as the tip is spiral-shaped and lets your ear breathe.

The first 500 pairs of Veer Earplugs are sold out, but they are still available to pre-order for €42 and are expected to be shipped out this month.
