Noise-canceling technology has become quite popular amongst consumers looking to block out ambient sounds around them, but the 'Owl' headphones look to take things a step further.

Inspired by an owl's naturally hearing capabilities, the headphones are able to block out the sounds of traffic and crowds, while also allowing users to customize the frequencies they do and don't want to hear. This can be adjusted via the accompanying smartphone app to effectively put more control in the user's hands rather than have them settle for standard settings or functionalities.

The conceptual 'Owl' headphones are the design work of Burak Şahin and identify the growing popularity of customizable technology that puts more control in the hands of consumers to satisfy their preferences for personalization.
