From headphones that help consumers concentrate to speakers equipped with Amazon Alexa, the CES 2017 audio innovations certainly lived up to the hype.

Some of the most impressive audio advancements came in the form of new and innovative headphone designs. For instance, the Earin M-2 True Wireless Earbuds not only boast a cord-free design, but they also feature a tiny touch interface on the outer facet of each earbud for controlling different audio functions. Another example is the Blue Satellite Wireless Amplifier Headphones, which boast active noise cancellation technology that can be fine tuned to the user's exact preferences.

Of course, the CES 2017 audio innovations were not just limited to headphones and earbuds. In fact, speakers were also a big hit among attendees at the show. Some standout speakers on display include the clarity-enhancing JAVA Hi-Fi system, the voice-activated Lenovo Smart Assistant and the stackable aiFi speakers.
