One of the most frequently asked questions we get here at the INDATA Project is, “What are some noise cancelling headphones?” Many parents seek this assistive technology for their child with autism, but noise cancelling headphones can benefit many other individuals! We have already done two posts covering many options of noise cancelling headphones (Check out: Headphones for children with autism and b-Calm Headphones), but I have another pair to add to this list: Bose Acoustic Noise Cancelling QuietComfort 25.
As an adult with ADHD, I experience many (if not all) of the symptoms of Adult ADHD every single day. One symptom that stands out above the rest is distractibility. A majority of my job requires researching different assistive technologies and writing about them. I have (rare) moments of great concentration and productivity where I get “in the zone” when writing, but these moments quickly end when I hear someone talking or walking in the hall, a phone ringing in another office, door shutting, elevator opening, etc.
These distractions are slim to none now that I use the Bose QuietComfort 25 headphones. I simply put the comfy headphones on, flip the power on, and I am all set to stay in the zone indefinitely! I never thought something as “simple” as headphones could make a difference, but these truly have!
The Bose QuietComfort 25 headphones don’t cancel out every single noise, but they reduce the ambient noises tremendously making it possible for me to focus on my work.
