As someone who has extreme difficulty tuning out a conversation in the background once I've picked it out (even if it's one I really, REALLY don't want to be listening to), I think I'll pass.

Soon after I got married, my wife was afraid I was losing my hearing because I kept asking her to repeat
things.

Turned out not only was my hearing 100% normal overall, but that it spikes into the super-human in the
2000 Hz range, which happens to be the frequency response range of most conventional telephone
earpieces.  This is not surprising because most of my working life has been doing jobs that required a lot
of telephone work.

I have since found out that most husbands have experienced precisely this.  Its not that we're deaf, ladies,
its just that we sometimes need a couple of takes to properly process things.

Yup. I can hear really well and I'd rather have super vision than anything else hearing related.

I don't know why you would ever ask a woman to repeat themselves.  You'd then have to go through the 20 minutes of agony waiting for her to get to the god dam point.

You are responsible for anything that comes out of your mouth.

If you don't want trouble, don't say it.

This will certainly make tracking the infected through walls much easier

'DIY' and 'implant' should never be in the same sentence.

FTFA invisible headphones, implanted in the ear, which can hear conservations across a room.

Maybe next he can invent fingers that can spell correctly.

Yeah, but will it let you hear the third sound?

My vision is bad enough to need glasses, and my sense of smell isn't too keen either, but my hearing practically borders on superhuman. I can hear when people are parking in my driveway long before anyone hears them knock on the door. Heck, I can hear when someone parks in my neighbor's driveway. If there isn't too much outside noise, I can hear my neighbor talking on his house phone from inside my house, even with the windows shut. The only annoying part is sometimes hearing noises from electronics that most other people can't hear.

I'll file this under 'Things I can do that I thought other people could do'. My hearing has always been super wacky.

They need a device you can implant to turn your hearing OFF.

All day, it is an endless stream of THUMP-rattle-THUMP-rattle at the stoplights, crying babies in restaurants, drunken buffoons who always seem to have the need to scream their conversations to each other, in spite of being a full two feet apart, and the brief muffled screams of children before they succumb to asphyxiation.

hyperacusis for the loss
