Melbourne-based, personalised sound pioneer nura has launched its highly anticipated debut product in the UAE – The nuraphone/G2 – a reinvention of the headphone that looks, feels and works in a radically different way to conventional headphones.
“A person’s hearing is as unique as their face, fingerprint or voice. That’s why trying to design a perfect sound-system without taking into account the listener’s hearing system would be like trying to make glasses without asking ‘who is going to be wearing them?’ There is no such thing as a perfect sound-system – only one that is perfectly matched to you. At nura, we are driven by a vision to deliver perfect sound to every individual,” said Dragan Petrovi?, CEO, nura.
Music in full colour Built to deliver the most immersive experience of the music you love, at its core is a self-learning engine that automatically measures your hearing by monitoring otoacoustic emissions – no need to take a “can you hear this?” test. nuraphones use this information to adapt the sound of the headphones to perfectly match your hearing and bring your music into sharp focus. The learning process takes only about a minute. It is performed using a companion app available free on iOS and Android. Once personalised, your profile is stored on the nuraphone delivering your perfect sound from any music source such as a smartphone, computer, home stereo, airplane seat, etc. In an ongoing effort to continuously improve the music listening experience, nura announced it’s G2, a sweeping series of free software upgrades to the nuraphone hardware. The software enables features including Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and Social Mode. The nuraphone can store up to three unique profiles so you can share and compare with your friends.
FrontRow immersion The nuraphone is neither in-ear nor over-ear – it’s both. We call it inova™. The revolutionary architecture delivers bass you can feel, while maintaining crystal-clear detail. It works by splitting the melodic sounds to an in-ear speaker, and low-tones to an over-ear driver that delivers the bass through your skin. You can adjust your level of immersion with the companion app. And thanks to the dual isolation of inova, the nuraphones don’t let any noise in or leak any sound out.
With quality comes comfort The nuraphone’s ear cups are formed from lightweight, aluminium which are complemented by a headband made from Japanese spring steel. SoftTouch biocompatible silicone provides superior comfort, and a novel TeslaFlow music-activated cooling system keeps your ears comfortable even after hours of listening. Simplifying your connection to music Connecting to your music has never been easier. The nuraphone features aptX HD Bluetooth which supports the highest quality sound for wireless connectivity—along with a universal port for USB-A, USB-C, micro USB, Lightning, and 3.5mm analog connectivity options. The inbuilt smart response powers off when you remove the nuraphone from your head to preserve the battery, which provides at least 20 hours of active use. Listen all day, charge at night.
Nuraphone has won a number of recognitions including CES Best of Innovation 2018, Red Dot’s Best of the Best 2018 and Good Design Award 2018
