STANDARD WIRELESS EARPHONES VERSUS THE AVANCO HEAR  

If you're like me, you've had many different earphones in the past.

The problem with standard wireless earphones is that they are either too big, stick out of your ears or don't fit properly.

A bad fitting earphone can put pressure on your ear, be painful when worn or even fall out.

Introducing the Avanco Hear - The Solution!

- It custom fits exactly to the contours of your ear canal

- Its calibrated to the way you hear, protecting your hearing

- And it charges wirelessly.

The Avanco Hear is different to anything else available. They mould perfectly to your ear canal, sit comfortably and never fall out.

We have also added the latest "Over Air" Charging functionality to the Avanco Hear. 

Over air technology allows you to charge your Avanco Hear devices while you are wearing them, extending your play time even longer. We think this is the future of charging.

You can also charge your smartphone using the wireless charging function of your charger, for those times your phone runs out of power.

Simply place your phone on top of the wireless charger and charging begins automatically - a nice extra we think.

HOW THE AVANCO HEAR WORKS

The technology used in the Avanco Hear is different from anything else available in the World.

Each Avanco Hear uses Quad core technology - 2 Main Processors & 2 Digital Signal Processors in every device to deliver user experiences not previously possible.

The technology inside the Avanco Hear is engineered and designed to reduce power consumption by up to 65%. 

This means a massive boost to battery life for Voice calls, Music Streaming and everyday use compared to previous single-chip Bluetooth audio solutions.

This new technology gives the Avanco Hear Devices a massive 12 hours standard play time.

Now you can enjoy using your Avanco Hear devices longer between charges.

THE AVANCO HEAR BRINGS YOU VOICE RECOGNITION

For example "Avanco Volume UP" - Turns up the main volume control 

"Avanco Answer Call" - Answers your Phone calls, Handsfree

Incoming callers will be announced through your device

"Avanco Next Track" - Music Program changes, Handsfree

or connect with your Voice Assistant "Avanco, what is my agenda for today?"

There are no buttons to press as Voice recognition and your Avanco Hear App eliminates the need to touch your Avanco Hear at all when they are in your ears.

AVANCO HEAR - THE ONLY EARBUD YOU'LL EVER NEED!

The Avanco Hear will replace your Headphones, Headsets and Earbuds.

Each Avanco Hear uses advanced Audio Quad Core Technology, a unique Calibration process and specially programmed algorithms, to let you hear the World like you've never heard it before.

SPEECH will be clearer

MUSIC will sound amazing

MOVIES will be engaging using your own Personal Theatre Sound System

GAMING & VR will come to life. Play right in the moment and Hear the direction of each sound

If your charge level goes below 10%, a Voice Alarm will tell you to re-charge your Avanco Hear.

You will hear this directly through the Avanco Hear devices in your ears.

HOW WE DESIGNED AND BROUGHT THE AVANCO HEAR TO THE WORLD  

DESIGN

We wanted to create a unique Hearable that was powerful, pioneering and had lots of amazing functions, but small enough so that it could fit completely into your ear, have a custom fit right out of the box and be very comfortable to wear. 

To achieve this we researched the ear canal sizes of over 200 people before we came up with the Avanco Hear design.

ENGINEERING PROCESS  

With the Avanco Hear we have redefined Digital Signal Processing and produced a really powerful Audio Quad Core Computer for your ears.

Also, we have managed to reduce power consumption by 65% so that you can enjoy your Avanco Hear devices longer between charges.

All of the materials and components for the Avanco Hear have been carefully selected to give you an in-ear sound system that produces a clarity of sound not possible before.

Each casing is 3D printed using a specialised machine in a 3 part process that uses a special Medical Grade Flexible Silicon that is designed to fit all ears. The end result, after assembly with its electronic components,  is a sealed casing with no buttons.

Each Avanco Hear is IPX7 Waterproof.

Charging is Wireless and connectivity is via Bluetooth.

THE AVANCO HEAR - THE FUTURE OF HEARING TECHNOLOGY

We believe that the Avanco Hear will become part of your everyday life. Your world will be enhanced and sounds that you've never heard before will enter your ears and enrich your life.

Risks and challenges

With the Avanco Hear we are using the very latest groundbreaking technology to bring you a custom fit device that is unique to you. There is the possibility of bugs in the software, challenges that we weren't aware of and possible delays.

Having said that, the design and engineering work are complete and we have working prototypes that we have tested with friends.

Our manufacturing partner is in place, our suppliers are in place and production timescales are in the process of being finalised, so we fully expect everything to run smoothly.

We will send out weekly updates on the Avanco Hear throughout our Kickstarter campaign and will continue to do so after the campaign ends and we go into full production mode.

There will also be on-going lifetime support for the Avanco Hear IOS and Android App.
