9to5 Mac reports on new headphones that have just been launched by Bose that are designed to hel you hear better in noisy environments. Bose’s Hearphones look like the company’s QC30 earphones, but come complete with directional microphones that help you to listen selectively, filtering out background noise and honing in on your conversation.
“Focus, amplify or reduce real-world sounds to the level you want,” proclaims Bose of the earphones. “Active Noise Reduction improves the listening comfort of conversations and takes the edge off the background noise.”
A special iOS app, Bose Hear, is designed to work in conjunction with the Hearphones and lets you customize the sound and also configure presets for a variety of different environments. The Hearphones can also be used as basic noise-cancelling headphones.
You can’t buy Hearphones just yet, but you can sign up for a chance to attend one of Bose’s “exclusive events” in Framingham, near Boston by signing up here: Welcome | Bose Hearphones
