Did you know that your AirPods can listen to you when you’re listening to them? They can! A new study shows that they can be useful in monitoring your breathing and detecting irregularities.
In the study, the headphones were used to track users’ respiratory rates by listening for inhales and exhales. They could do this despite ambient noise. The researchers concluded that this technology can be useful for monitoring breathing patterns in the future such as detecting asthma attacks or other respiratory emergencies.
