Crowdsourcing Mornings: Heari: Smart Headphones

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Headphones today may be masterfully designed, but none of them care about your ears’ unique sensitivities. So, just as you wouldn’t wear glasses that were made for your friend, why should you use headphones that weren’t made for you?  Introducing Heari. Heari is a wireless headphone that integrates their clinically proven and customer acclaimed Aumeo technology, and tailors all sound to help you reach your full hearing potential.  Their award-winning technology maps your unique hearing sensitivity to different sounds and then adjusts your music based on your audio profile. The result is a tailored audio experience custom-fit for your ears only. What’s more, you can use Heari’s app to adjust sounds to your liking. Want to enjoy more bass as you’re exercising to the beat or boost the voice section of favorite singer’s tunes? You can now do that with a few easy clicks.

Every ear processes sound differently thanks to the combination of slight variances in ear bone shape, the hair cells that are responsible for hearing, and, in some cases, hearing loss. Heari’s app allows you to take Aumeo’s 2-3 minute test to accurately determine your unique sensitivities and to build your optimal custom EQ.  Thanks to 3 included microphones and advanced circuitry, they can offer a unique feature called Tailored Audio Transparency. It works by recording the sounds around you and then in real time, processing them through your unique hearing profile.  This means you can listen to the entire world around you with the same clarity as your music. You’ll be picking up little details of sounds from TV Shows, live concerts, face to face conversations and other situations that you never realized were there before!

As of August 6th, this project has raised $102,000 of their $50,961 goal. This project has 2 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $119, you will get one Heari headphones.  For a pledge of $219, you will get two Heari headphones.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
