Ecotones Transforms Noise Into Tranquility

Ecotones Sound Therapy System

The Ecotones ambient sound therapy system listens and adapts to your environment, creating audio backgrounds “so vivid and realistic you’ll forget it’s in the room”.

Use Ecotones throughout your home or office to mask noise from loud neighbors, traffic, aircraft or annoying machinery. Select your favorites from a dozen skillfully crafted SoundStories and instantly transform your environment; turn irritating traffic noise into a soothing seaside escape or the din of nearby construction into an inviting babbling brook.

Ecotones’ specially designed speaker pair and tuned sound chamber produce a full range (90 – 20,000 Hz) of crisp, transparent audio. A headphone jack enables private listening as well as connection to an external stereo or audio amplifier. An adjustable sleep timer is also included.

Ecotones can be used in any of three modes:

AdaptiveThe Adaptive Mode is the most effective mode for masking irritating noises. In this mode, Ecotones listens to the sounds around you and tailors its response to blendthe noise into a tranquil SoundStory.

BackgroundThe Background Mode generates a pleasant background atmosphere as the sound level in your surroundings drops. In this mode, Ecotones reduces its volume in response to a telephone ringing or to the sound of conversation and resumes normal volume as the room becomes quiet.

ManualThe Manual Mode lets you select a constant volume level. In tihs mode, Ecotones listens to the sounds aruond you and creates an ever changing SoundStory at a fixed volume.

The Ecotones ambient adaptive sound therapy system is available from the Hammacher Schlemmer website for $299.95.

  1. It looks like a real useful stuff. I have a house a road which usually very busy and make a lot of noise.

  2. Yes, it does Ken. I have the airplane route just above my house, so something like the Ecotones could actually come in very handy.

  3. “The Adaptive Mode is the most effective mode for masking irritating noises. In this mode, Ecotones listens to the sounds around you and tailors its response to blend the noise.”

    That’s pretty clever stuff. Though there’s got to be limitations to what it can detect and how it can blend to those sounds…

  4. Wait, how could you have an airplane route above your house?

  5. Umm, Kevin…do you think planes fly between the rows of property lines or something?

  6. There’s always the tried-and-true “Sleep Sounds Machine” for $55 … http://www.hammacher.com/publish/60586.asp
