Concept earplugs use tech to battle machine noise

As machines continue to take over our cities, one way to drown out the perpetual din of gears and beeps would be to employ a tech-versus-tech strategy with these slickly designed concept Kill Noise earplugs.

Imagined by designer Xiao-bin, the plugs would effectively drown out all unwanted sound by using adjustable electronic filtering. With control knobs conveniently fitted on the outside of the earplugs, the Kill Noise earplugs could actually make turning off the outside world fun.
