b-Calm GP and PRO: Headphones for autism

Children with autism are often sensitive to noise, and noise-canceling headphones are a great resource (or absolute necessity!) for these children.  One of our most popular blogs is the Headphones for Children with Autism post.  While browsing the internet today, I came across a company called b-Calm LLC, a company with a passion to help improve the “quality of life for those individuals and their families dealing with autism, ADHD, and other special needs.”  The company currently offers two different headphones to help those with sound sensitivity: b-Calm GP and b-Calm EX.

Their original product is the b-Calm GP.  It is a system featuring AudioSedation, which functions as an “acoustic shield, allowing the individual to have control of the sound environment, and helping reduce off-task behaviors and irritability.”  According to its description, wearers will enjoy how well loud noises are blocked and replaced with familiar, soothing sounds from nature and the world around them.

The b-Calm GP system is available as headphones or earbud style headphones.  The b-Calm GP system includes:

  • Easy implementation using preloaded mp3 player or CD
  • Fun, child-sized headphones
  • One pair of earbud style headphones
  • USB type charging cable
  • Built-in rechargeable battery
  • Black b-Calm carrying bag
  • Mp3 manual

The b-Calm EX system utilizes the “ease and effectiveness of touch-screen technology and is great for noise control and visual communications for individuals of all ages.” The EX system includes an easy-to-use tablet with 4.3″ touchscreen, 4 GB memory, Android operating system, built-in Wi-Fi, and more.  It also features the same AudioSedation tracks found on the original b-Calm GP system.  Users can customize the system with one of b-calm headphonesthe 100+ included pictures or import their very own!

The b-Calm EX system also offers headphones or earbud style headphones.  Here are the rest of its features:

  • 4.3″ touchscreen media player
  • 4 GB memory
  • Android OS
  • Wi-Fi
