Do you get distracted by other people's conversations?

Have you tried noise-cancelling headphones and found that, yes, noise gets reduced but annoying voices are actually clearer?

AmbiJam scrambles ambient sound. It lets you hear the SOUND OF voices, but not WHAT they are saying. Much less distracting! You can stay in the zone. Your zone.

Some of us are different. We like to think, read, and write, and yet we enjoy being around other people. We like coffee shops or bars. But if we actually tune-in to the ambient content.....loud conversations, people on cellphones, obnoxious lyrics, etc....we cannot concentrate on our own stuff. Frustrating.

AmbiJam takes the sound that enters your iPhone's mic, chops it into little pieces, rearranges it, and then feeds it back into your headphones. The offending voice gets mixed with and covered-up by snippets of itself. We have "jammed" the voice.

AmbiJam is salvation for many of us who work in cubicles or open desking, where it can be very hard to work with the distraction of loud neighbors.

Ever been stuck on the airplane ride, with a 4-hour conversation in the row behind you? AmbiJam will make you smile.

Trying to study in your dorm room, but fellow students in the hallway have a different idea? AmbiJam to the rescue!

For best results, use around-ear, noise-cancelling headphones. It also works well with noise-cancelling in-ear headphones (buds). Works OK with non-cancelling headphones, but you need to turn up the volume of the scrambled sound. (Note: AmbiJam currently does not support Bluetooth headphones.)

Enjoy the human race. With AmbiJam.

CAUTION: Even though sirens, baby cries, fire alarms, horns, and shouts are still recognizable with AmbiJam, spoken announcements (eg. public address, gate changes at airport, in-flight announcements, etc.) will be scrambled. Stay conscious of your surroundings, just as you would anytime with noise-reducing headphones or listening to music/podcasts/e-books through headphones or earbuds.
Our verdict: Good
  • + AmbiJam is a highly rated app (5-star).
