Worried by teenagers playing music too loudly into their ears, Apple has today released the ‘iPod Mute’, designed to play music completely silently. The user simply places the wireless earbuds into his or her ears, switches the tiny music player on, and music begins to play. The ingenious iPod Mute then plays the music at a ‘comfortable 0dB’, so ‘stunningly inaudible that you’ll think that there is no music playing at all’.

The iPod Mute features no screen and no controls, quite similar to the popular iPod Shuffle. A non-rechargeable battery powers the amazing device, and has a life of approximately 1 hour (or 30 minutes if you are watching invisible video). New batteries can be purchased from Apple for $200 after this.

Initially, the new iPod will be available in 200GB, 400GB, and 1TB models, providing plenty of space for all of the music, videos, and photos you could ever dream of (please note, you will have to dream of the music, videos, and photos for the iPod to be effective).

Apple engineer Carlos iMendez said of the Mute: “No one has ever experienced audio or video like this. It stimulates the brain more than a book, for the price of 1000 of them.”
