iPhone Headphone Plug Completely Silences Phone

real-iphone-mute-plug.jpg

This is the Mutator, a small plug you insert into your iPhone's headphone jack that, with a twist, completely silences your phone from audio stemming from games, videos, apps, alarms, Siri, etc. etc. You know, because the little switch on the side doesn't work for that (although keeping a pair of headphones plugged in at the lowest volume comes pretty close). The Mutator is currently a Kickstarter project and $16 will get you one if they reach their funding goal. Now before you decide to buy one, I want you to sit back and imagine this: you're with the girl or boy that you've liked for a long time, and it's FINALLY HAPPENING. You're kissing, maybe doing a little light over-the-shirt petting. You see this going far. NAKED SLEEPOVER FAR. Then Siri chimes in reminding you it's time to take your diarrhea medicine.

Hit the jump for the Kickstarter video and no, I don't have a stake in the company.

Thanks to Side Effect and don, who silence their phones the old fashioned way: smashing them to pieces on the ground screaming, 'YOU DON'T CONTROL MY LIFE YOU PIECE OF SHIT, DO YOU HEAR ME?!' Their phones don't hear them though, because the mics aren't even attached to anything anymore.

    Claire's, the little girls' accessory store, has done this already with unicorn head toppers. This company is a little late.

    Oh my gosh you have to be f*cking kidding me.
    If the people here actually bothered to atleast try cutting up pair of earbuds and get the same effect; please tell - because just doing that doesn't do what this does at all.
    WATCH THE VIDEO GENIUSES.

    Raised $15,000..You can throw any crap idea on kickstarter and have it made huh?

  • Laurent Maulin

    SO you think this is supposed to be some revolutionnary little gadjet hun?

    I would never get my self something like this, no need for it at all.

    The Iphone 5 already sets audio limits when having a call in a noisy surrounding environement and i can guess the next iphone 6 will also feature such stuff.

  • Tyler AitchKay

    Anybody who donates money to this project is a dunce, plain and simple.

  • Superior_Joe

    Wtf? Does the iPhone not have a way to turn the fucking sound off? What a piece of shit!

  • Graig

    it does. this thing is absolutely useless. WHY would i want to buy this stupid thing to stuff in a jack when i can just hit the mute switch thats been on every iphone from the very first iphone?? did they make this thing for android or something?

  • Superior_Joe

    No, I have the s3, very easy to mute

  • Graig

    oh ok. i guess someone just decided to be retarded and make a thing like this that has absolutely no purpose... no idea why someone would want one of these. craziness.

  • simplyshiny

    iPhone doesn't have a silencer?

  • Graig

    it has 3 if you count the volume buttons. theres a switch on the side that mutes all the sounds. you can go into settings and enable "do not disturb" or you can turn just down the volume to zero.

  • Eric Stodolnik

    THIS IS SO FUCKING STUPID!!!!!
    LIKE EVERYONE JUST SAID... JUST CUT THE 1/8" JACK OFF A FUCKING CORD!!!
    GOD! PEOPLE ARE FUCKING STOOOOPID!

  • Steven Sanchez

    Why not just turn down the volume manually?

  • Louis

    Can't you just buy a crappy $3 pair of headphones and cut the cord, leaving you with the exact same thing for less than a fifth of the price?

  • Brent

    Yes, and you might be able to find them cheaper. You could even add in the twist for silent by covering half the jack with an insulator.

  • DarrenR

    You can absolutely find them cheaper then $3.

  • daniel

    please... if i go to an electronics store and buy a connector or i get a free headphones from the spanish train line (RENFE) will be cheaper -.-

  • Jordan Hampton

    Buy the cheapest pair of headphones you can find/Use old broken headphones. Cut off the cord, leaving you with only the plug. VOILA. You have created this product.
