Bionic Hearing Technology

Bionic Hearing Technology

Augmented auditory reality means super hearing aids that can both amplify and filter sound according to need and desire. Bluetooth earbuds controlled by a smartphone app that can equalize, filter and tune sounds allow the user to hear what they want to hear and how they want to hear it.

Review: What Its Like to Have Super Hearing Abilities – [technologyreview.com]

I never thought much about what it would be like to change the way the world around me sounds; if I don’t like the sound of a street musician or the din of a busy shopping mall, I either put up with it or leave.

This week, though, I acquired the superhuman ability to simply adjust the noise to my liking, and it’s pretty great. I’ve been testing out Here Active Listening System, a pair of wireless Bluetooth earbuds that work with a smartphone app that uses algorithms to change the way you hear anything from rock concerts to construction noise, with hardly any latency.
