The Sterling Silver OOVO Straw Necklace is a patented wearable vocal straw necklace made of solid 925 sterling silver. It’s the top voice tool recommended by world-leading voice coaches, ENT doctors, and speech language pathologists. OOVO users include Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony winners; multi-platinum recording artists; and probably your favorite local voice teacher. It’s the premium everyday vocal tool for singers and serious voice users.
Used for semi-occluded vocal tract training (straw phonation), the OOVO Straw equalizes the pressure of your breath and enables your vocal folds and cords to vibrate with less effort. It helps singers and speakers achieve their best voice.
In addition to healthier singing, the OOVO Straw Necklace helps vocalists take their practice with them. Its small size creates a vocal mute so you can practice quietly—in hotels and apartments, on your commute, virtually anywhere. Learn more about how it works.
The OOVO Straw opening is optimally sized for checking in with your voice multiple times a day– for a quick warmup, or for hitting the “reset button” after heavy vocal effort. It’s the Best Choice for a Better Voice.

Thanks a lot for these cool, simple and beautiful tools. I’ve ordered an oovo straw and a sing ring and they are amazing. I’m not a singer, but I use them for controlling my vocal folds for my freediving sessions 🙂

It’s my first day using my OOVO straw and at first, I was unsure how much this would help. After using it to warm up and sing a little bit, I can say that I love it! I’ll be using this to warm up every time I sing and before every audition.

The Oovo straw has given me my voice back. Period. I am forever grateful. And it looks awesome too 😉

I love it, I sing through it, I like to make sure it vibrates my teeth and lips to be sure it’s working, I feel my stomach is pushing the sound and not my throat, I’m having to relearn to sing properly! It’s a great help.

I’ve only had my OOVO necklace for a week, and I’m wondering why I haven’t had this all my life. I’m a vocalist for a living, and this thing is an amazing tool. I normally vocalize with lip trills in order to get the effortless placement I’m trying to achieve, and this straw is an amazing way of doing that. When I switch from using this straw to singing, my vocal feels effortless. AMAZING.

This is my new best friend. I’ve always used a metal straw in my water bottles, but now I don’t have to! It’s super convenient and a wonderful fashion accessory (for a voice teacher).

I had never heard of using a straw until a few months ago. So I was using a stainless steel one. Then I received an email from a voice therapist who was recommending the oovo straw. So I researched it and decided to purchase one. I was especially interested in the fact you could wear it around your neck. When the straw arrived I was so impressed with the high quality presentation of the straw in such a lovely box as well as the straw itself. I’ve googled exercises since receiving the straw and one of the videos is by the owner himself with another voice coach. The only thing I wish I had known about is the ring oovo straw which I understand you can make a smaller hole for greater resistance. I’m still new to this though about all the benefits of semi occlusion. I need all the help I can get because I used to sing so well and then something happened to steal it away. Hopefully I can rebuild what was lost.

I tour with a broadway show across the country and travel days, new venues, different hotels all provide challenges while performing. The OOVO straw has been a lifesaver and one of my favorite tools to use both as a performer and a teacher. I carry it with me everywhere and it’s the perfect way to cool down on the way home after a show or warm up on my walk to the theatre. I no longer have to struggle with losing plastic straws in my backpack every week. I am SO thankful that I tried out OOVO and will not go back to any other straw for vocal warmups!

Not quite enough resistance for me personally I prefer a smaller straw but still a great product, really useful.

Hey James, thanks for the feedback! You might like our Sing Ring instead. It has an option that’s one step smaller than the OOVO Straw Necklace. Give us a shout if we can help! https://oovostraw.com/product/sing-ring

After recovering from a vocal polyp I treated myself to an OOVO straw to maintain my vocal health. We used straws as part of my voice rehabilitation and it was crucial to bringing my voice back to full function without surgery. Now, I wear my OOVO daily and use it on my “vocal breaks” throughout the day to reset and relax. I also use it on gigs so I can reset during set breaks. By wearing it while teaching lessons, I never have to search for a straw to demonstrate straw exercises to my students and I’m setting a good example for them by taking vocal health seriously. It’s probably one of my all-time favorite purchases. Beautiful and functional. Money WELL SPENT.

This has been a great tool for my 17 year old son who always forgot his straw for lessons. No more digging for one in the car as we drive to lesson.

Love it! I’ve been a fan of the straw warm-up for years. Now that I have one on a necklace I practice way more frequently. It’s also pretty cool looking. I get compliments all the time.

Well, the bonus of the OOVO straw is that since acquiring it, I’ve managed to sing a WHOLE lot more than I normally do. As a teacher and singer, I use the straw throughout the day to reset my own voice, and it has been a TREMENDOUS tool for me as well. Would love to be able to give them out to all my students in my voice studio at some point! Thanks for this creative and planet-friendly tool for voice development!

In high level Barbershop and choral singing you hear and do a LOT of semi-occluded warm ups, the most common of which is “bubbling” (lip trills/buzzing, etc). The Oovo straw is a great addition to the vocal toolbox and can even replace things like bubbling. It definitely helped me support my bass range, low, mid, and high. Having it with me all week, around my neck, at the International Barbershop Competition with various rehearsals at different times and places is fantastic!

OOVO is a life saver and a game changer. Making my warm-up and cooldown routines reliable and bulletproof has meant my weekly gigs involve less stress and guesswork; no need to cross fingers and hope that my voice will perform as I know it should. It all feels under control after a 5-10 minute oovo warm-up.
Naomi (verified owner) –
It works. I use to use plastic straws and paper straws. My vocal coach recommended this to me. I use it to warm up my voice before I sing and I also use it to cool down my voice after I sing. One time buy, It’s worth it. No more throwing away straws after a lesson or performance.

Size and durability are perfect. Great as a warm up tool but also an endurance developer. Helps create balanced support also great for cool down and helping any overuse.

I can’t recommend the OOVO straw enough. I love to wear it. I’m constantly getting compliments on it as an accessory, but perhaps even more importantly, it’s my favorite warmup device I’ve ever used. There’s true resistance for building stamina and sound canceling so I don’t keep my roommates up at all hours. And since it’s around my neck, I can warmup anywhere from my apartment, to the subway platform, to (in one case) inside the audition room because the casting director was so enamored with the straw. I love the OOVO and you will too.

The OOVO Vocal Straw Pendant is cool for a lot of reasons.
The first of course is that it helps me keep my commitment to going plastic-straw-free, a tough thing to do when you run a voice studio. It’s a beautiful little thing, and I suppose could be as much a piece of jewelry as a tool/utility. Singing “brrr” has long been the way introducing singers to semi-occluded vocal tract exercises, and since straw phonation has been popularized in recent years by science pedagogues like Dr. Ingo Titze and Jeanie LoVetri, OOVO is the perfect thing for those who like to have the next great accessory. It works, it can go anywhere, it saves me from using single-use plastic straws, and it’s cute. Packaging is great, too. I’d be happy to recommend it. – Sara Leib, Voice Teacher and CEO of Voxercise

I’m a big fan of the straw as a tool for vocalists and I’m now slightly obsessed with the one I acquired in LA last week. The OOVO Straw is brilliant for vocal warm-ups, cool-downs, and general vocal health, not to mention it’s a really cool necklace! It’s like hitting a little “reset” button for your voice.

I’m a professional opera singer and I already started using it. It is fabulous. The fact that it’s a necklace is just perfect since I can never find a straw in a hotel room. It’s pretty rad and I feel better knowing that I’m not using any more plastic straws for my warm-ups!! Thank you @oovostraw!
I love it! I used to use a plastic straw from Starbucks but there wasn’t much resistance and they get gross in my bag so I got this. The size wasn’t what I expected. It’s a little bigger than the straws you get in a cocktail, not like a regular drinking straw. But I looked it up and that’s the size you’re supposed to use to get the best exercise so I kept it. Tried it for a few weeks. I definitely feel the resistance vs the plastic ones. And I’m not throwing a bunch of plastic away anymore, which I always felt bad about. And I don’t feel like I’m gonna get sick from using a gross straw that’s been laying around. Overall, I love it! My voice is definitely getting stronger. Side note — it muffles the sound when you practice. I can sing at full blast without annoying my roommate. She’d give it 5 stars for that. I’m giving it 5 bc it works well. I expected it to be bigger but now I like that it’s small. Shipping was fast. Lots of good videos on youtube if you’re looking for warm-up exercises. Five stars.
My girlfriend and I both have one now. It’s been well worth it for me. Less expensive than one lesson with my vocal coach, and I’m feeling the benefits big time. In terms of technical stuff, it’s helped me smooth out my passaggio and immediately showed me I was using too much air with too little support in my mid-range. It’s kind of like the vocal equivalent of a golf-swing trainer. It literally won’t let you sing wrong.
5 stars. Works. One-time-buy.
