Startup Characteristics

Today, a vast majority of consumers use earphones on a daily basis. However, most people use cheap, uncomfortable earphones that fail to satisfy the increased demand for improved sound quality, comfort and fit. Others pay an unreasonable premium for large, inconvenient headphones. Whereas customized earphones are nothing new, traditional players have a very consumer-inconvenient process which results in long waiting times, a very high price, and consequently, an absolute niche market.

Deploying cutting-edge, patented mobile 3D scanning technology, we are able to overcome those drawbacks and are the first ones to truly offer customized earphones for everyone. The way we do this is by developing software that uses the cameras of standard smartphones to capture a 3-dimensional model of the ears. Our customers just have to start the scan, follow the audio instructions that lead them through the process, and will have their customized earphones delivered to them three days later. Future plans include software that measures how every individual’s ears take on the audio and then adapts the frequencies for a customized sound. The team consists of experts with experience in each of the three fields of Operations, Marketing, and Technology, and has a strategic partnership with a world leader in mobile scanning software.
