The global corona-virus outbreak has created an increasing number of challenges to individuals, communities, companies, and manufacturing facilities.
COVID-19 has produced a prolonged attack on public life, especially indoor life. Many of the largest super-spreader events took place inside: at a church, in an auditorium, at a conference.

In today’s hectic world of work, it can be difficult to catch a minute of peace.

With open offices plans now the norm in most workplaces, the sounds of chatter and movement that take place every day can have a number of detrimental effects on productivity and employee wellbeing.
The promise of noise cancelling headphones can seem like a magic bullet when it comes to protecting the hearing of employees that work around loud noises.
