While you're immersed in your headphone audio, you don't know what you could be missing. Perhaps you didn't hear your phone ring, a package delivery at your door, or an announcement for free cake at work. SoundBrake solves this major problem by alerting you to outside sounds while you're isolated in your headphone audio.

SoundBrake sets an outside volume alert level to be higher than your current background noise level when you press a button. You can also increase or decrease its sensitivity. SoundBrake listens to your surroundings and alerts you when it detects outside sound above the volume alert level by temporarily silencing your audio.

SoundBrake can be attached to any audio player. Whether you're in a different world in virtual reality, playing video games, listening to music, or watching movies, SoundBrake will prevent you from being oblivious to your surroundings.
