The effects of noise on hearing vary among people. Sudden exposure to loud sounds may psychologically shock people on varying degrees.
Surprise is the emotion we feel when an unexpected event occurs. We need to stop and process the scene in order to decide how to react to the situation. People also come to a standstill when surprised, as they devote all their energy to deciding whether what is unfolding before them is a threat, a joke, a harmless incident.
The human brain takes over and immobilizes us. In doing so, it’s hoped our predator will lose interest and wander off.
The fight or flight response is a primitive and powerful survival reaction. It is an evolutionary defence mechanism – an ancestral trait. Once the brain has perceived a danger or threat, adrenalin course through our veins, increasing heart rate and moving our attention toward a very singular focus : fighting off or getting away from the threat.
A sound's loudness is measured in decibels (dB). Normal conversation is about 60 dB, a lawnmower is about 90 dB, and a loud rock concert around 120 dB. In general, sounds above 95 dB are deemed loud noises and is sufficient to induce panic or defuse predators.

Can be used multiple times until the batteries are drained. Even so, the simple design allows the user to replace the batteries without any hassle.

Primarily used to deter predators and ultimately buy time, the egg-shape device promotes better handling. Being lightweight, it is trouble-free to carry around.
It is exactly as they described! I bought multiple of these to give my daughters. One of them was in a parking garage and a guy in a hoodie approached her in an aggressive manner demanding money, she pulled the plug on this device and he literally took off running. Very LOUD and works as you'd hope.

I bought this product only recently for my family (of 3 at that time). We were at a mall when my little girl went missing, I started to panic and got really stressed out but just moments after I heard a siren loud and clear. She was a floor below us and there was no mistaking that it is not anywhere near us, but I heard it loud and clear. I was very amazed by this product and who knew it is more versatile than just a security alarm!
