The noise-can­celling tech in Jaw­bone’s

Blue­tooth head­sets is based on al­go­rithms cre­ated by DARPA. Orig­i­nally

de­signed to en­sure he­li­copter pi­lots’ or­ders weren’t drowned out by the drone of their ve­hi­cles, it iden­ti­fies nui­sance noise and neu­tralises it by play­ing in­verted sound waves over the top.
