These brainwave-reading headphones are designed to help you focus

A small Boston-based company called Neurable has developed headphones that can help you concentrate by reading your brainwaves and adjusting noise cancellation levels in response.

The headphones use a ring of sensors around the ear pads to sense your brain’s electrical signals. Based on that information, they can subtly hike up noise cancellation as you begin to reach deeper levels of focus.

According to Ramses Alcaide, Neurable’s cofounder and CEO, the headphones’ corresponding app uses machine learning algorithms to understand when your brainwaves resemble the patterns produced by the brain when it’s concentrating, or if they indicate you’re distracted.
