Very cool: this Kickstarter is launching a set of headphones that **learns how you hear** and automatically adjusts to your particular hearing profile.

I'm seriously tempted because it sounds like an uber-cool gimmick. And because I wonder how the music would sound if it corrected for my hearing losses. Their test listeners sound astonished at how clear and listenable the sound is. But I've never been a headphone listener. Never liked wearing them. So it probably doesn't make sense for me.

But obviously a lot of people like the idea. They launched the Kickstarter campaign yesterday, hoping they might be able to raise $100k. They're over $200k in 24 hours.
