New headphone technology could save the lives of people who listen to music while walking.
Unveiled at the CES tech show last week, Road Safety GB reports that the headphones allow users to listen to music as normal, but cuts the volume when specific sounds are heard.

A sensor in the headphones scans for up to ten “audio triggers” such as car noises, brakes and horns.

The headphone’s maker, Harman,says its new technology will allow users to be more aware of their environment in critical situations, such as road-crossing, potentially reducing the amount of collisions and therefore pedestrian injuries.
