The SNS-600, also known as the sound bubble, was a sound negation system produced by Paretaine Sonics. It created a dampening field inside of which distracting ambient noises wouldn't be heard.
The SNS-600 sound bubble was created by Paretaine Sonics, a company that specialized in sonic technology. In passive mode, this device generated a 360-degree field in a five-meter radius. Sounds emitted outside of the "bubble" could not be heard inside of it. In active mode, a 60-degree arc was produced out to ten meters. Sound waves were dampened within this arc, preventing aural vibration form being heard, whether by live or automated detectors.
