Future investments

If I wanted to invest in a technology, looking ahead about 20 years, it would be in audiology.

It doesn't need Nostradamus to predict a huge increase in hearing aid demand given the current penchant for distorted low-frequency booming that is passed off as music amongst the shallow end of the gene pool.

I'm also wondering if advances in noise cancellation could be combined with LRAD technology, to cancel out the rowdy from a distance.

Or stun* them into silence.

* In much the same way as a depth charge stuns fish.

Damn right. Excessive noise is among the most antisocial asshole acts, yet it seems to get very little attention.
Drop a cigarette butt, however.....
Noise is just "too hard" you see.
