The Japanese company NTT Sonority has developed headphones that allow users to hear what is happening around them, while the environment does not hear sounds from the device.
As reported by Ukrinform, this was reported by NHK.
The headphones use carefully designed speakers that produce sound without blocking the ear canal. The company notes that users can thus be aware of what is happening around them and even participate in a conversation. At the same time, the headphones create acoustic waves that prevent sound from “leaking” to the outside and thereby causing discomfort to the environment.
It is noted that Sony has also released wireless droplet headphones with a hole that allows the owner to hear what is happening around. These devices are also equipped with microphones that can detect when the user is talking, making it easier for them to have a conversation.
As reported by Ukrinform, the German company Adidas presented wireless headphones RPT-02 SOL, which use a light Source for charging.
