Stay Alert While Enjoying Your Music
ListenThrough™ is an alertness feature developed by Alango Technologies, Ltd. that allows headphones to pass through only important sounds. It blocks ambient noise without compromising the listener’s music experience. It is a built-in sound enhancement feature of Alango’s Wear & Hear line of hearables and assistive hearing products, such as BeHear™ and SALT™.
Do You Need to Sacrifice Quality Listening to Stay Safe?
Important environmental sounds can be masked almost completely while listening to loud music with headphones or earbuds. It is not only inconvenient but quite possibly life-threatening. Hundreds of people are injured every year while wearing headphones or earbuds simply because they were cut off from environmental sounds. The problem has been recognized by headphones and earphones manufacturers. However, existing “open microphone” and other similar technologies compromise music quality by allowing external sounds and ambient noises to reach the user’s ears.
How Does ListenThrough Sound Enhancement Work?
With ListenThrough technology it is possible to listen to clean music, but still be aware of the environment. ListenThrough is an alertness feature that allows headphones to pass through only the important sounds blocking ambient noises and without compromising the music experience.
