Cumulus is a stylish headphone designed for autistic adults, where the headband goes round the neck
and it has a galvanic skin sensor. This sensor helps determine the rise of temperature or heart rate via
vibrations and better understand the mental conditioning of the autistic adult, at that given moment.
The way the headphones wrap around the user’s ears also provides a sense of comfort and security.
The Cumulus has three modes: Sound Cancellation, Directional Microphone and Music. By covering
the ears, the Sound Cancellation gets activated and provides absolute silence; by simply putting a
hand at the back of the ear will activate Directional Microphone, which can isolate speech from
background noise; and simply swiping the panel will activate Music. A sophisticated and handy
aid for those who need it!
