The Music Echo is a new product designed for people with hearing impairments, to enhance their enjoyment of music. The Music Echo takes any song and clarifies it by vibrating the music through a range of interactive beads. Simply wrapping the beads around your hand or putting them in your pocket will create a new dimension to the music. The portable and styli

sh design allows the user to proudly wear the Music Echo in any situation.The music that you upload to The Music Echo is analysed real time into six frequencies of the music. These six areas are then vibrated accordingly through the six interactive beads creating a seamless vibrating echo.

People with hearing difficulties can be seen as having limitations, but I wanted to explore how these limitations could be considered to be an opportunity for innovation. Hearing impairment does not disable, but it inspires the ability to be different and it is this area that I began my research.
