Which type of headphones or earbuds should I use?
Headphones deliver superior experiences compared to ear buds. However, there are some high-quality ear buds that deliver very good results. We have created this page to explore and explain your choice of listening devices.
Does my device have to be connected to the Internet?
Yes. Our files require additional processing not available on traditional digital media.
Are your experiences available on iTunes®?
No. Because additional playback processing is required, Life Environments Refresh!™ requires an Internet connection.
Can I use my computer instead of a mobile device?
Absolutely! You can use any device with a live Internet connection and the ability to feed headphones or earbuds.
What are my Life Environments™ subscription options?
Individuals can choose between quarterly or annual subscription options. An annual subscription offers substantial savings over our monthly option. Professional and group licensing applies only to annual subscriptions to deliver the most in cost savings.
Can I cancel my subscription at any time?
Yes. Your subscription will run until the end of the current paid period then terminate.
How often do you release additional experiences?
We release approximately 12 experiences each year. As you might expect, each new experience requires significant production time, but we try to release at least 12 new experiences each year.
Can I share my subscription with my family?
Absolutely! Just remember that you cannot have more than one person using your account at a single time.
Do you have gift certificates?
Yes! In fact, when you purchase 5 or more, you receive quantity discounts. This is a great way to give and save at the same time.
Is technical support available?
Yes. Life Environments™ is easy to use. Once you become a subscriber, you will receive technical support access that explains setup and configuration options for your account – easy stuff. If you need further system assistance, you can place a support request that will be responded to immediately. Please note we do not provide support for devices, headphones or Internet connectivity issues.
How many employees are required for a corporate subscription to Life Environments™?
Corporate subscriptions are available to companies with as few as 25 employees. Corporate accounts are sold in minimum quantities of 25 subscriptions with additional breaks at 100, 500 and 1000 annual subscriptions. Because corporate subscription certificates do not expire, they can be used in subsequent years, when unused, which eliminates overrun losses.
How do corporate subscriptions work?
When you order a corporate subscription, you will receive coupon codes for your employees to access their Life Environments™ Refresh!™ account. These codes are pre and post-fixed with codes to identify your distribution(s) so you can identify which subscriptions have been redeemed and by whom.
We have several locations. Can we buy for all and save?
Yes. Discounts are available based upon quantities purchased in a single transaction. It’s best to estimate accurately to receive the best possible discount as opposed to purchasing small groups when needed to earn the greatest possible discount.
How difficult is it to implement Life Environments™ in my company?
Easy. Your representative will help you understand your subscription certificate system. It’s simple and once you receive your certificates all you need to do is distribute them to your employees. They do the rest. Once they sign up, they will receive all of the information required to get setup right the first time. Like every Life Environments Refresh!™ experience.
Can I use some of my Life Environments Refresh!™ subscriptions for my customers and vendors?
Yes. Just remember that your certificates have specific tracking prefixes. If you want to keep tracking pure, you may want to order groups with different tracking prefixes. Please remember you cannot sell your certificates.
Usage and Application
When should I NOT use Life Environments Refresh!™?
Life Environments Refresh!™ are immersive experiences. Never use Life Environments Refresh!™ where or when the absence of your concentration or undivided attention is reasonably required to protect yourself or others from harm. Never use Life Environments Refresh!™ while driving or operating machinery that requires aural or visual acuity. Never use Life Environments Refresh!™ in places where you or others could be harmed due to your inability to react to your environment. Never use Life Environments Refresh!™ when you are responsible for the care of a child or other person who may need your assistance.
Is Life Environments Refresh!™ right for everyone?
No. Life Environments Refresh!™ delivers highly immersive experiences that are almost exactly what anyone would experience during a walk in the areas we capture. That being said, these are lifelike experiences and they may not be appropriate for everyone.
Persons with psychological disorders, dysfunction or other trauma must always consult with their primary mental health physician prior to engaging with any Life Environments Refresh!™ experience. Selective experience selection choices should be considered by those likely affected by PTSD or other conditions that may be triggered or exacerbated by exposure to specific stimulation. For example. A forest environment may not be appropriate for someone affected by wartime or other traumatic events that took place in a similar area. As with all things, common sense must always prevail.
If you notice yourself or someone else responding adversely (anger, agitation, frustration, anxiety, fear, crying, aggression, acting out, etc.) during or after listening to Life Environments Refresh!™, STOP LISTENING IMMEDIATELY and consult your mental health professional immediately. In the highly unlikely event violence or the potential exists, get out of any area of danger and call 911 immediately – even if it is you displaying the behaviors. No such response has ever been reported and is an unexpected reaction to Life Environments™.
Life Environments Refresh!™ in clinical and/therapeutic environments.
Life Environments Refresh!™ can be used in a variety of perioperative, procedural, transitional, residential and palliative settings where attenuation of anxiety, stress and fear for improved clinical outcomes and patient experience is desirable.
MRI headphones with noise-reduction technology will strip out essential spatial orientation and frequency response information. When possible, noise-isolating MR Safe (non-magnetic) headphones that meet or exceed ANSI S3.19-1974 standards with min. 28db noise reduction should be employed consistent with MRI manufacturer specifications. System requirements vary, and acoustic positional accuracy testing (using Life Environments™ clinical test codecs) should be conducted prior to therapeutic implementation as performance and frequency response is highly device dependent.
Please call us at +1 (317) 219.3866 for clinical and therapeutic application guidance. Our staff physicians can help you apply Life Environments Refresh!™ technology according to your specifications on a local or institutional basis.
