The urban aural landscape has a huge impact on our lives—from the roar of traffic and clatter of jackhammer, to the groove of music and lullaby of birdsong. These maps roll that information together to let you explore how cities around the world sound.

We see a lot of deals on inexpensive Bluetooth handsfree kits, but the problem is that most of them require your car to have an AUX jack. Luckily, there’s an answer for really old vehicles that lack even that.
Harman may have just saved countless friendships, thousands of marriages, and maybe a few child abuse charges with the introduction of a stereo that localizes sound around each seat in the car.

It's incredibly noisy in the cockpit of a helicopter, and you'd assume the sounds you hear in any YouTube police chase video were just the deafening whine of the chopper's engine. But as one hacker discovered, that monotonous drone can actually hide some useful data, like the helicopter's GPS coordinates.
Much like a "unicorn chaser" for horrific imagery, this is the perfect video to listen to after being subjected to annoying audio. It's Maximilian Werner's Ferrari 250 SWB GT Breadvan pole position lap from the 2013 Oldtimer Grand Prix at the Nürburgring.
Trying to pinpoint what exactly in your car is making that weird ticking noise can drive anyone to madness.

Everyone likes music in the car! There's no feeling like rolling down the windows, bumping some Enya at a reasonable volume, and letting the spring air in. Or, you can use 18-inch subwoofers to blow apart an entire phonebook. [Fark]
A new system from auto supplier Magna turns a car's rear window into a giant subwoofer, using a combination of exciters, a 200-watt amplifier and a special sealant that allows the glass to vibrate at low frequencies.
When a subwoofer — like this Cadence 34-incher — gets so large it needs an enclosure the size of two refrigerators and you need to hold it up with an engine hoist, it's probably too big for your car.
Let's say you park your car in an area frequented by urban entrepreneurs who gather intoxicant-obtainment resources by harvesting car audio equipment from vehicles… yet you still want some tunes in your ride.
