DOPPLER LABS announced that it has received investments from LIVE NATION, UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP and WILLIAM MORRIS ENDEAVOR to develop its HERE ACTIVE LISTENING SYSTEM. Thye produce is the first in-ear system that uses two wireless buds and an app to allow both control and personalizing a live audio environment. DOPPLER launched a KICKSTARTER campaign earlier this month and surpassed its original $250,000 30-day goal in less than 48 hours.
"Support from these music industry leaders helps position the HERE ACTIVE LISTENING SYSTEM to revolutionize live entertainment – especially for concerts and live music," said DOPPLER LABS CEO/co-founder NOAH KRAFT. "The technology we have created has the potential to make every seat in the house the best seat in the house by allowing every listener to personalize their live audio environment based on their own specific listening preferences.”
Through volume sliders, EQ and effects that act as “a studio in your ears,” the SYSTEM allows you to augment real-world audio and transform any concert or live music experience to exactly your liking.
While HERE has been optimized for live music, it has been designed to adjust any and all real world audio so you can curate the sound around you for a wide range of everyday scenarios: suppress a baby crying, the subway screech or reduce the roar of the crowd and optimize listening for sporting events, air travel, open office environments and even noisy commutes.
DOPPLER LABS' KICKSTARTER campaign, which runs through the beginning of JULY, allows consumers to purchase the HERE buds and app at a special $199 price before it is available on the commercial market. Backers can also be a part of developing the HERE audio platform and have access to other exclusive rewards.
