We started our journey building a medical device for hearing tests but Audeara headphones are not a medical device to be used by doctors or to make a diagnosis. We use a hearing test that is very accurate and based on medical science but these headphones are designed to make your music sound better.
Medical hearing tests take a very long time so we’ve developed a system to get the same results but a lot faster! We use a slider system that is just like a volume dial. We’re playing a beeping tone the entire time. What we want is to find your threshold of hearing at a number of frequencies. That means we want to find the quietest possible sound you can definitely hear at each frequency. If you can hear the beeping you turn it down, if you can’t hear the beeping you turn it up until you land on that sweet spot. We use that information to decide what changes we need to make to give you exactly what you need. We also show you the result so you can understand and track your hearing over time.
You can listen to anything that has bluetooth or a 3.5mm analog trasmitter. We use bluetooth to send the signal from the device to the headphones. This means that any bluetooth device will work with the headphones. This means you can use your phone, tablet, laptop, tv, stereo, radio…
It’s always nice to share but it’s very very unlikely that anyone you share your headphones with will have the same hearing as you so they won’t sound very good. What we do to overcome this is allow you to set different profiles in the Audeara app. You can also set them to be ‘factory default’ for a quick fix if you really have to. After hearing how great they sound with your personal profile we’re sure you’ll never want generic again.
They are bluetooth headphones and will need to be powered to apply your personalised profile. We are currently exploring the option of applying the profile using a wired connection and bypassing the bluetooth signal. If we can deliver this feature without having to push back our expected delivery date, we will absolutely include it.
