It would be nice if Apple added some software to just have the sounds picked up by the mic immediately amplified into the speaker of the Airpod, along with a graphic EQ, so people could tailor the frequency response to their particular hearing deficit. I think there's probably enough hardware inside the Airpod to do this natively. It couldn't make the trip through Bluetooth because if the delay, which would be annoying. Such a thing would help millions of people that can't afford thousands of dollars for custom hearing aids, and would also cut down on the embarrassment lots of people have about wearing hearing aids too. --- Post Merged, Mar 28, 2017 --- It could also give people without hearing deficits superhuman hearing powers.
