Concept device could kill city noise from disturbing your home

 That noise is likely to permeate your overpriced apartment via your windows, unless you've gone through the trouble of retrofitting it with the soundproof kind, which is yet another inconvenient headache.

Yet, don't lose hope for peace and quiet, because it might soon be possible to finally get some with the help of a prototype noise-cancelling device. Using a technology similar to the kind found in noise-cancelling headphones, Sono (not to be confused with the audio company Sonos) nullifies obnoxious earaches while filtering out sounds you'd actually want to listen to, like chirping birds or a passing ice-cream truck. Sound preferences can be adjusted via a circular scroll panel on the face of the device.
