As if social media wasn’t bad enough, the commute home can be a minefield of walking spoilers. If we had a pound for every time a total stranger ruined Game of Thrones then we’d definitely give that small fortune to Doppler Labs’ latest Kick Starter campaign.
Here Active Listening is the latest addition in the developing trend of wearable technology. ‘Here’ includes two wireless ear buds and an app, turning your mobile into a remote control so you can adjust anything from the EQ of a live concert to the frequencies of jet engines. This ‘hearable‘ system provides a customisable real-life sound experience, filtering out the everyday noise you don’t want and enhancing the sounds you do.
It’s arrival is perfectly timed, as recent reports suggest that the increasing decibels of our environment are contributing directly to premature hearing loss. Doppler Labs have already surpassed their Kick Starter target within the first week and have started shipping to Europe and Asia as well as North America.
