Hearing aids for the iPhone generation.

A lot of “premium” hearing aids already do things like this, but the technology is–not to put too fine a point on it–crap. They’re also ridiculously expensive, at upwards of $5,000 per ear.

Hopefully, over the next few years, we’ll start to see more and more consumer lifestyle-level technology put into the devices… and a price-drop wouldn’t go astray, either.
