Able PlanetAblePlanet is an audio company that makes a lot of hearing hardware, aids, microphones and more. At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the company showed off personal sound amplifiers — ¬†which is not, strictly speaking, a hearing aid, but more of a boost to sound that will help in environments where listing can be an issue.

However, the new headphone line was the most interesting thing — the company claims that its headphones allow the customer to listen at a lower decibel rate than standard versions, meaning that the user is saving their hearing, or “improving health”.

You will need to watch the video below to really understand how AblePlanet is making all this happen, but it is really fascinating technology.
