2. Here Active Listening Ear buds

“These ear buds offer a unique take on earphones, as they take in sound from the outside world and allow you to adjust the volume of specific sounds, making them great for the work environment,” says special projects manager Cecilia du Plessis. “They also sync with an app to enhance audio to specific settings such as ‘Carnegie Hall’ and ‘Psychedelic,’ which would make for a lot of fun at festivals!”
