Comforting Headphones

Tend is a project that focuses on Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), a disorder common in children with autism, Asperger’s, and other syndromes. Those suffering from the disorder find it difficult to transition between environments, such as going from a quiet car ride to a noisy restaurant. This solution maintains the volume between environments making the transition easier. Styled like modern headphones, the device also has a sporty look and feel that the user will feel comfortable wearing in public.
