Unleash the power of your personal Soundscape.
Akoio recommendations for better Soundscapes.
We love understanding how sound affects you. We hear from people all the time about how noise negatively impacts their ability to focus and accomplish their daily tasks. Here’s a great example:
Featured Soundscape Story
Nora is a stay-at-home parent of two young children in Brooklyn, NY. After living through the infant and baby stages – sleepless nights, crying babies and constant physical demands, she thought she was in the clear. (“We made it!”- says every parent of a 5 year old) But that’s when the volume really starts to turn up. The sibling rivalry is REAL and Nora finds herself snapping at the kids everyday. She begins to realize that maybe its not actually the typical bickering of the kiddos, maybe it’s the NOISE.
The constant noise of traffic and construction in her neighborhood, the after-school rush at the park across the street, the TV always blaring while she’s simply trying to take 10 minutes for herself after cleaning up dinner…and yes, the kids, too. Noise can be crippling, so let’s start to turn down the volume in our busy lives. Let’s start, HEAR… with these products that can provide a bit more ‘calm’ to your storm.
These beautiful crystal bowls (with carrying case) give you access to meditative sounds and vibrations from the comfort of your own home.
While kids are napping, taking time to put on some headphones and listen to soothing ambient noise or your favorite podcast may be just the thing they need to help balance out and create a calm moment for the parent before going back into “on-mode”.

The Akoio Blog
from Soundscapes to
hearing health and wellness
I formed Akoio and assembled an incredible team of design and manufacturing experts to help me reimagine the hearing aid user experience. We set out to make hearing aid use more efficient, accessible, and stylish.
This year, I am thankful for the continued journey of discovery in the area of sound and wellness. Our soundscape changes everything, and managing our soundscape can impact our mental and physical health.
Akoio developed the Soundscape Journal to help you identify sounds in your environment and how they affect you. In just one week, Leah learned about positive sounds that enhance her mood and identified noises she did not even realize were bothersome. With greater awareness comes empowerment to make changes.
