We’ve all heard of wearable technology. The new product category for 2017 is “hearable” technology, which will play music, relay phone calls, keep track of health indicators such as heart rate and blood pressure and so on. This hearable, from San Francisco startup Doppler Labs, expected to be released in March for £250, is called Here One. At root, it’s a pair of independently powered Bluetooth earphones. But it also allows you to control sound from the real world around you. So, you might use it to tune in its built-in microphones on the person sitting in front of you, while turning down the crying baby across the restaurant; or to turn down the engine noise on a flight, or the screech of an underground train. You heard it here first.
