Amazon is working on noise-cancelling headphones that stop the music when someone calls your name

Amazon wants you to be able to respond when your name is called even when you have headphones on.

The company is working on  a set of noise-cancelling cans which cut the filter when triggered by safety words or phrases, such as someone yelling out for you.

This was revealed through a recently awarded a patent for its innovative design.

According to the patent, ambient audio hitting the headphones would be filtered out, as most high end noise-cancelling products do already, though they would also listen out for keywords and phrases in the ambient noise.


When the headphones pick up on a trigger, they suspend the noise cancelling feature, so the ambient noise cuts through.

Predetermined words or phrase can be specific to an end-user that utilizes the noise-cancelling device and/or a person that interacts with that user.

Information on when a viable product might hit the shelves is not yet available.
