Heari: Smart headphones adjust sounds to your full potential
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 our clinically proven and customer acclaimed Aumeo technology, and tailors all sound to help you reach your full hearing potential.
Our 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.
But we didn’t just add Aumeo to any headphones. We created a wireless headphone that anyone would love.

Thanks to 3 included microphones and advanced circuitry, we 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!
In July 2015, our team launched the Aumeo Tailored Audio Device on Indiegogo. The campaign ended with 2,541 backers and 641% funding. We sent out 3,000+ devices, allowing our backers to enjoy music in a new way!
After hearing tailored audio for the first time, many of our backers urged us to create a product that could both apply tailored audio to more than just music, and be more convenient to use.
The MF Jebsen team enjoyed Aumeo and partnered with the Aumeo team to create Heari. Heari is a more convenient way to enjoy Aumeo’s audio tailoring while also being able to enhance the quality of your phone calls, TV Shows, live concerts, the sounds of nature, or even the hustle and bustle of your favorite coffee shop.
Risks and challenges
By leveraging the experience of software and hardware design of Aumeo personalizer, Aumeo and MF Jebsen has jointly developed the proof of concept working prototypes and tested by many engineers in several months. We now focus on fine-tuning the performance of the directional microphone. So we don't have any worry on the development.
Manufacturing and Delivery:
Aumeo had shipped over 3000pcs of Aumeo personalizer in last crowdfunding campaign and MF Jebsen had manufactured and shipped over 600,000pcs of music players and other electronics devices all over the world before. With our track record, all backers can be assured on the delivery.
