Headphones aren’t exactly a one sound fits all, though they’ve been made that way for years. Each of us have different hearing profiles and Heari sounds like they’re here to fix the issue. Meet AumeoAudio Heari Personalized Audio Wireless Neckband Earphones.
AumeoAudio Heari Personalized Wireless Earbuds with MMCX
Heari, like the few personalized hearing headphones that have come before it (Nura, EVEN, Beyerdynamic Aventho), the neckband requires an initial hearing test. AumeoAudio created a companion app that allows customers to run a quick test and as well as save their hearing profile. In turn, the earphone automatically adjusts the volume and music playback suited to your liking. That being said, it seems like the sound is bound to impress. In fact, Heari features a high-end hybrid technology which consists of a dynamic driver to deliver on the low frequency (bass) and a balanced armature that handles high frequency audio for a richer, fuller, and detailed sound.
What I think makes this headphone truly revolutionary in terms of tailored audio is the fact that the neckband is fixed with MMCX connectors. This means if you’ve got Westone, Shure, Campfire Audio or any other MMCX-based IEM, those housings can be attached to the neckband for high-quality, tailored playback on the go. That’s what I’m talking about!
When it comes to connectivity, Heari also features technology to retain quality sound and a strong connection thanks to Qualcomm’s CSR 8675 chip, which offers aptX, 24-bit audio processing and top-end Bluetooth connectivity, according to Aumeo. The neckband also features controls to connect the headphone, answer calls, and navigate through playlists. It also supports a 10-hour battery life.
If interested, AumeoAudio Heari can be purchased on Kickstarter for HK$ 769 which is roughly $98 USD. Orders ship worldwide in December 2018.
