Nura's Self-Learning Headphones Adapt to How You Hear Audio
These headphones will start to know your ears better than you do.
While it’s apparent that everyone hears differently, headphones have by and large remained a one-size-fits-all apparatus, limited to variations based on form alone. Now, the folks over at Nura are looking to change that with the launch of its new headphones that revolutionize the way we listen to audio. It works by first determining the sensitivity of sound frequencies by measuring how an individual hears low, mid and high tones, capturing otoacoustic emissions with a built-in microphone. Then, the headphones use that data to adjust audio, delivering personally-crafted sound, via a smartphone app. Over time, it will be able to recognize your ears in less than two seconds upon putting them on. Combining a design that integrates both in-ear and over-ear features, the company has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help facilitate the mass production of its headphones. With in-depth research into neuroscience, hearing and acoustics, Nura Headphones are providing audiophiles with a listening experience as advanced as the music developed today.
