These Earphones “Learn” How You Listen and Adjust Accordingly
Smart earbuds with active noise cancellation, now 30% off during preorders
If you want to shape the world to your liking, start with sound.
Nuraloop, new from Nuraphone, are the â€œworldâ€™s first earphones to learn and adapt your hearing.â€ The wireless buds use a Personalized Sound technology to â€œlearnâ€ how you hear and adapts accordingly. During a 60-second test, the earbuds play a range of tones in your ear and measures the very faint sound the cochlea generates in response to those tones â€” which is called Otoacoustic Emission (OAE), if youâ€™re interested.
Do this once, and youâ€™ll have your own sound profile. This is slightly different than what a company like EVEN does, which uses a self-administered hearing test to create its hearing blueprint. And itâ€™s a winning technology â€” the company won a â€œBest of Innovationâ€ Award at CES last year, and the Wall Street Journal raved about the tech, claiming it was â€œthe sonic equivalent of transitioning from black and white to Technicolor.â€
The Nuraloop also allows you to control the noise levels of the outside world â€” â€œSocial Modeâ€ lets in your environment, or you can shut it out completely with active noise cancellation or pick a level in-between via an embedded, adjustable TouchDial.
Hearing preferences aside, the Nuraloop features a whopping 16+ hour battery life without a charging case, and just a 10-minute charge will grab you two hours of listening time. The sweat-resistant â€˜loop also comes with a detachable analog cable for times when you need to be plugged in (like on a plane).
Preorders for the Nuraloop are available now at 30% off, with shipping in September.
