“Selective hearing” is the kind of thing our moms used to accuse us of having, but now that we’re older, we see it as a good thing. Especially if Doppler Labs’ Here Active Listening system is as good as it looks to be.

With the use of an app-controlled pair of wireless earbuds, users can filter out or enhance any audio frequencies in real-world ambient sound. Wanna hear the lead singer’s voice more at a concert? You got it. Wanna drown out the 747’s engines on that trans-Atlantic flight? Yup. Do you have a fever, and the only prescription is more cowbell? You know what to do. The app has presets for handling crying babies, background chatter, subway trains and traffic. The sound-processing is conducted by a microphone and digital signal processor in each earbud, and they’re powered by a USB-rechargeable lithium-ion battery, said to be good for about six hours of use. Watch the video below. [Purchase]
