Doppler Labs CEO Noah Kraft says his office isn’t intentionally loud, but the blaring car horns that drift up from the SoHo street below serve as a constant reminder that the world isn’t always sound-optimized. Kraft and his team hope to change that with new wireless earbuds he calls the first step toward bionic hearing.
Doppler Labs isn’t interested in blocking out all natural noise and pumping prerecorded sound into your ears. The team wants to change the sounds that are coming in. It wants you to customize your sonic world in exactly the way you want.
Imagine being able to turn up the bass at a concert, or reduce the sound of a baby crying on a plane. That’s Kraft’s vision, and Doppler’s new “Here” active listening system is how he says he’ll prove i’s possible.
Doppler on Tuesday announced the close of a $17 million Series B investment round aimed to bring Here to market. But the more pressing question is, do they actually work?
