When it comes to headphones, the more immersive the experience, the better they are considered. Afterall, how can you enjoy your music completely when you can still hear people around you.
This is why a lot of companies, as well as consumers invest a lot of time and money in search of the perfect noise canceling headphones.
For those of you who don’t know, noise canceling headphones are a type of headphones that can listen to the sounds near you and then cancel them out by emitting their own sounds.
However, thanks to their smart abilities, these headphones can also cause certain problems, as you are completely left unaware of your surroundings.
This sort of immersion is not so practical when someone is trying to talk to you, or warn you of some impending danger that you haven’t noticed yet.
To rectify this error, Amazon had applied for a patent for a technology that allows noise canceling headphones to listen for and recognize your name.
This way, whenever someone says your name out loud, the headphone can either stop their noise cancellation function, or mute the sound altogether.
As you can guess, this is a very smart feature that can easily tip the scale for any customer looking to buy a noise canceling headphone.
This is why it is such a big deal that finally, Amazon has been granted this patent. So we can soon expect a new series of Amazon headphone with this unique feature. Just wait and watch.
