To make the list, TIME solicited nominations from their editors, and online application. The final list was then compiled based off key categories, such as electric vehicles or green energy, and then was evaluated based off originality, efficacy, ambition, and impact.
This is not particularly surprising given Filter was Audeze’s attempt to address growing concerns with work following COVID-19. To do this, Filter was optimized for voice calls, along with boasting advanced Neural network noise-cancellation, supported by Audeze’s planar magnetic speaker technology, in an extremely compact package.
What really makes Filter stand out, besides being around the size of a phone, is the neural network noise-cancellation. Anyone who has had meetings at home know life sometimes happens, often resulting in a wide variety of annoying sounds. So much so one product made it on ABC’s hit series Shark Tank to help mitigate that.
Audeze describes this feature as follows:
Zero-Noise Microphone Technology
Have you ever been interrupted by barking dogs, gardeners, AC units or vacuum cleaners during a meeting?
Audeze FILTER incorporates AI-based microphone circuitry that‘s been trained to identify and completely eliminate over 500,000 noise samples. Using AI-on-the-Edge Technology, FILTER’s noise cancellation algorithms are built into the hardware, so you don’t have to configure virtual sound cards or app settings. Just connect FILTER and start your call!Audeze
Given so much has changed in the world these past couple of years, it’s great to see technology grow, adapt, and evolve to meet these modern challenges.
