Get Listen Up and you can hear everything!

One of my favorite commercials these days—for all the wrong reasons—is the one you can see here for a device called Listen Up, a personal headset that lets you amplify sound from across the room. Interspersed between the more mundane demos—like how you can use it to listen to the TV when the others around you don't really care to listen—is the fact that its best use is as .... an eavesdropping device! Cue woman at mailbox wearing Listen Up, overhearing the conversation of two women walking down the street:

Walking woman #1: "Have you met the new neighbors?"
Walking woman #2: "I haven't."
Walking woman #1: "He seems nice ... she seems like a bitch."

Oh wait, that last part didn't really happen, but you get the idea.
