Nose wind breaker

Preventing ugly phone panting

This device isn't for everyone, it is only needed for those suffering from PPD (phone panting disorder).

I'm not sure what causes PPD, may be a particular shape of the nostrils or over-excitement (or both), but the result is a very unprofessional noise, that I hear especially often when talking to various tech support.

A simple device either would attach to the handset, or would be worn as a sun cap, only not on the top of the head but between nose and mouth. The purpose is to prevent the high-speed air stream leaving the nostrils from entering the handset microphone, causing the ugly noise.

       What about mouth breathers?

       Mouth breathers -- or "sighs" -- can be taken care of by the strict personnel discipline and adequate supply of donuts in the cafeteria to eliminate running.

       I'm thinking a re-naming will be needed before this hits the markets. Most people try to avoid any kind of wind breakage in connection with their noses.
