A simple tweak to the AirPods can turn them into a quiet, airy home.
It’s the result of a collaboration between the company and the Toronto Blue Jays, who are currently testing the device with their players.
The team’s new home-therapy app is called The Noise Generator.
“We wanted to make sure we got some noise out of the device,” says Jays pitching coach Brett Rood.
“The Noise Generator is basically a device that can make noise whenever the AirPod is on.”
The Noise generator uses a Bluetooth connection to emit low-level static noise, a sort of hum, at certain frequencies.
It also uses a series of Bluetooth microphones to capture the sound.
This “microphone effect” is used to create the ambient noise around the Airpod, creating a sort-of hum that makes it difficult to tell if it’s coming from the device or not.
The noise generator also works with the Airpods app, so it can track whether the Air Pods are actively being used or if it has been idle.
Rood says the team was able to replicate the same effect on players in Toronto, and they’re testing it with other Blue Jays players in the clubhouse as well.
“It’s very similar to what we’ve done in other cities,” he says.
“They’re very comfortable with the noise generator.”
When it comes to soundproofing, Rood explains that a common method is to put some kind of speaker on top of the Air Pad.
That way, when the noise is being produced, the noise can be detected by a speaker and, when necessary, the Air Pod itself can be removed.
He says they are also testing a foam that can be applied to the bottom of the pad, creating an invisible seal.
“There are several ways we could go about it,” says Rood, who says the idea of putting a speaker on the Airpad has been around for years.
“In our case, we would use a foam sheet that we made out of plastic that would sit in the center of the foam.
Then we would put in a foam pad around that.
Then, you would put some insulation on the bottom.”
He says that when they get a chance to try this out, they’re likely to be more comfortable with it than with putting some kind, permanent soundproof material on the pad.
“If you have an open door, the sound is going to go all the way down, so you’re going to have that sound coming down through the foam,” he adds.
The Noise generator was designed to be used with the Apple AirPod, and Rood was surprised by how well it worked. “
But it’s still going to be a great solution.”

“I was able get a lot of the noise from it, and I’ve been able to do a lot with it,” he explains.
“So it works well with the headphones, too.
I had some great results.”
In an ideal world, the Noise Generator would be able to make the AirPad quiet even if the device is not on.
In order to get it to work, though, the team had to make some modifications to the Bluetooth technology on the Bluetooth connection between the device and the device.
To accomplish this, they installed a Bluetooth-to-wire adapter that allows the Bluetooth data to be sent between the two devices, which makes the Noise generator work even when the Airphone is turned off.
The Bluetooth connection was originally designed to support one-to one connections, but this particular adapter allows two AirPads to communicate, making the Noise Generators Bluetooth connection work even if only one AirPod can be active at a time.
“This allows us to do things like make it so that when the Bluetooth is on, the Bluetooth doesn’t have to be on at the same time,” Rood points out.
“Because the Bluetooth isn’t active, we can make it active and then turn it off, and it will still have the noise generated.
But the noise has been turned off and then the Bluetooth will come back on.”
When they test it out with the team, Rook says that they’ve noticed a lot more ambient noise than they would have expected.
“At this point, we’re very happy with the results,” he states.
The AirPops were designed with privacy in mind.
“One of the biggest things we’re trying to achieve with the NoiseGenerator is to create a way that the noise doesn’t interfere with other people’s privacy,” he continues.
However, because it’s Bluetooth, it
