'Soundgear' offers wearers an immersive listening experience without the inconvenience of wearing earbuds or other wired devices.

Although headphones allow one to become engulfed in an audio experience, its intrusive elements result in one feeling disconnected from the surrounding world. Not to mention, the sometimes awkward wires frequently tangle, or get caught on surrounding objects, eliminating some of the comfort involved with a movie day on the couch.

Soundgear is a neck-worn device that enables users to enjoy theater-quality entertainment from the comfort of their own home, while maintaining the ability to be aware of their surroundings. The device delivers high quality sound, offering a personal environment for the user, without completely cutting them off from the outside world.
