When someone was saying my name to get my attention I was able to recognize the rhythmic vibration and knew someone was calling my name.Isaac W.
Buzz alerted me that the water was running. I always accidentally leave it running. It’s those little things and the seemingly little ways that Buzz has enhanced my awareness.Sharif R.
It helps me a lot when I’m outside. If there is a siren, police car, or whatever, I can be aware and look around me.Phillip S.
My life has really improved so much with it. Being able to talk with people, being able to hear their voice, being able to distinguish their tone and being able to tell when they’re frustrated, it really gives me a lot of information that before I didn’t have.Sylas U.
I am picking up new things, recognizing feelings of the vibrations and the things around me.RaVae J.
I noticed yesterday when I was trying to boil water – which I can’t hear – and the wristband was vibrating lots. And I asked my partner, and he said yes, it was boiling. That’s really cool!Angela P.
I am always experiencing new sounds that I hadn’t heard before on a daily basis.Frank L.
I now can go into just about any place with just Buzz and not be wondering if I am going to be understood or if I can understand them.Robert L.
The more I used it the more I found out, and I wanted to keep using it.Lei W.
Tune into the world
Choose your mode to experience every environment.
Rest easy knowing that only loud, emergency sounds will alert you. Don’t worry, the algorithm filters out snoring and sheet rustling so you can catch your zzz’s.
Experience music on another level. There’s no need to crank the volume when you wear Buzz. This mode lets you feel the pulse of the beat layered with the textures and nuances of the melody. Whether you love rap, jazz, country, or ballads, strap it on and you’re good to go.
Enjoy your world – every day. Use this mode for most daily environments. It adjusts to your surroundings and cancels out unnecessary background noise like air conditioning or noisy restaurants.
Wake up to a strong, silent alarm on your wrist. Select a vibration pattern, set your wake up time, choose if it should repeat, and rest peacefully. Use it for reminders throughout your day too.

It’s as simple as learning to recognize patterns
When we become fluent in a language, learn to ride a bike, or refine our golf swing, we form associations with patterns of information from our physical world. Buzz is a wearable device that captures sound and translates it into vibrational patterns on the skin. With practice, these associations become automatic and a new sense is born. You’ll experience the difference on the first day you wear it. And it only gets better from there.
Want to know how and why Buzz works?
Our technology is developed by leading neuroscientists in collaboration with the Deaf community, and backed by Silicon Valley. See our TED Talk “Can we create new senses for humans?”
