Read on to learn more about this innovative new technology.

What is PRESAFE® Sound?

The PRESAFE® safety suite is special designed around detecting imminent collisions and taking measures to minimize the damage before impact, and PRESAFE® Sound continues this design philosophy. The difference is what this new feature focuses on: your hearing. Using advanced technology, this feature aims to activate your body’s natural hearing protection right before impact, minimizing any damage to you hearing.

How Does PRESAFE® Sound Work?

The science behind PRESAFE® Sound is based around activating your stapedius muscle, a part of your ear that contracts and alters the connection between your eardrum and inner ear so that is’ better protected against loud noises. In order to do this, when this system detects an imminent collision, it emits “pink noise,” a special frequency of sound that studies have shown to trigger the stapedius muscle reflex when heard. So when the loud noise of a collision does occur, your ears will be ready for it.
