This week in crazy, futuristic headphone news comes NURA.
NURA is the brainchild of a Melbourne-based startup and it is a headphone set that “scans” wearers ears, ultimately catering the emitted sound to what that users ears hear best. How do they do that? Well, I’m glad you asked that because each cup is equipped with tiny microphones meant to identify vibrations of hairs inside the ear’s cochlea when exposed to sound via a 60 second sonic frequency. This only has to happen once and the headphones Are able to recognize who the wearer is each additional time by a simple 2 second tone.
NURA launched on kickstarter this week (and has already doubled its funding goal). Check out the companies official video below for a better look at NURA and its aims. Expected delivery is April 2017 at a cost of $179 a pair.
