Imagine being on a train while you are on your way to work, listening to music without any disturbing sounds from your surroundings. Sounds too good to be true? It is in fact possible, if you have the right headphones.
At CES 2019 Jabra (booth location: LVCC, South Hall 4 – 35205) and audEERING present the newest Elite 85h headphones with context intelligence technology. This product enables among others the functionality outlined in the beginning of this post. Our joint vision is to provide people with audio solutions based on the concept of smart sound: no disturbing sounds while listening to music or making phone calls, but a crystal clear audio experience and all that automatically.
How the technology works
So, how does this technology work? Context intelligence by audEERING uses real-time acoustic scene analysis of environmental sounds. The technology can detect more than 6,000 unique sound characteristics and uses this to adapt audio output to each specific context. This means that when moving from a noisy train station into a quiet train carriage, the context intelligence technology will take notice and will automatically adjust the audio to the changed surroundings. It will select one of the three modes: “Commute”, “In Public” or “In Private” to guarantee a consistent quality for your audio experience.
Which use cases are there for these headphones besides the music example mentioned in the beginning?
