Noopl, unveiled at CES 2021 this week, is an iPhone® accessory that is designed to enhance hearing in noisy places so you “can connect better with those around you”.
The device, which clips onto the bottom of the iPhone, utilizes a three-mic array and beam steering to help focus in on speech more clearly. By using the head tracking technology built into the Airpods Pro, it can detect which direction the user is facing to help better reduce background noise and enhance speech.
The company is reported to have partnered with the National Acoustics Lab (NAL) to create the technology in the device.
A video was put out with the announcement of Noopl at CES 2021 on how it works:
