It harmonizes your hearing to help you be less distracted and reduce stress. It filters your acoustic environment, takes out harsh sounds and turns noise into tranquil harmonies. If you use this app you will become more focused and relaxed.
"I haven't left my house in over 15 years. After using this app for about two hours I have the courage to go to my local grocery store and feel the sunshine on my face." Ryanjam
Pro tip - You can also listen to your own music at the same time as using this app. It's great in any situation when you want to listen to music but still need to hear your environment. Try it at work or when jogging.
Attention - We do not currently support bluetooth headsets because bluetooth audio does not support high quality microphone realtime audio ( full duplex operation ). Our audio technicians are looking into this as we speak!

Ratings and Reviews
We’re well-versed in apps that put dazzling filters on our photos and videos, but this one’s opened our ears to the world of audio transformation. At its most functional, it can help you pick up conversations against background noise, but we love its bevy of playful, real-time sound filters, too. Make the people around you sound like auto-tuned singers (or backwards-talking demons), apply a trippy layer of soothing distortion over the drone of your commute, or turn the clacking of your computer keys into a musical instrument. It’s like nothing we’ve heard before.
Great app except for some glaring issues.
#1, you will not hear notifications when they come in while this app is open.
#2, if you don't hit the side button of your iPhone to turn it off when you open this app, it will keep you iPhone screen open/lit, even if you have your phone auto-lock set for 30 seconds. It just keeps the phone screen on/open. I'm not sure if it happens every time, but it's happened enough time, where I can feel the phone getting so warm in my pocket that I have to look to realize it the screen never turned off because of this app.
This app would be freaking fantastic if not for these issues.
A sad demise
This used to be one of my favorite apps. Let’s put aside the fact that it’s been abandoned. The last update came out of nowhere - a couple of extra in-app purchases that gave the impression the dev was on a midnight taco run and decided to hit up this old ATM account - a couple new filter thrown in, fishing for some loose change.
But I SWEAR something has changed with the old filters. They just don’t work the way they used to. Something changed in the algorithm and they don’t drown out sound they way they used, they don’t produce trippy musical feedback the way they used to. I used this app EVERY DAY when studying, but now I can’t use it because it’s cacophonous and ear splitting. Forget that I’ve tried it on different devices with different phones and buds. There was so much promise. :(
No one else has stumbled upon the ideas that drove this app initially.
