OpenEars is a device that captures and records binaural sounds though a smart headset. This smart technology captures three dimensional sounds and records them exactly as the human ear hears them.

It can be synced to a GoPro or smartphone using the compatible app to enhance each listening experience. This connectivity allows any user to record and share sound on social media platforms. By connecting an extra Bluetooth microphone to a helmet, it can enhance any sporting or athletic adventure.

OpenEars does not just record what the user hears, it also lets users listen to their own music and podcasts without being cut off from the world. This is done by using the 'HearThrough' system. HearThrough allows users to adjust volume based on how much of the exterior world you would like to hear.

The uniquely shaped earpieces ensure perfect binaural sounds. Each earpiece is available in different gel forms to fit ear users ear.
