The 'Sound' audio earbuds designed by start up Human Inc. offer consumers a futuristic interpretation of headphones that are designed to offer an augmented listening experience beyond simply music. The earbuds can be used to increase sounds in the wearer's own surroundings as well as double up as wireless speakers for communal listening. The wearables offer a multiplicity of uses in one compact and sleek audio sound system.

The 'Sound' earbuds are engineered to go beyond the functionality of a headset to be used for both personal and community listening. The devices are teardrop shaped and clip onto the ear for augmented listening of both the audio coming through the device or outside sounds. They can also be used to translate languages for the wearer and as loud speaker systems.
