Yamaha Creates Voice Masking System To Quiet Discrete Conversations

If you’ve ever been in a situation where discretion is important when speaking, then you may want some help from this guy. It’s the Yamaha VSP-1 and it is a little speaker device that plays sounds to cancel speech — up to 89% effective — allowing secret “deals” to be made while thwarting eavesdroppers.

There are 8 different sounds that cover conversations and they’re all earthy (Forest, River, Beach and more). Price is near $1,200 when Yamaha releases it in April.
