The company's Here Active Listening System feature two wireless buds that allow a listener to "control and personalize" a live audio environment.
Doppler Labs, the company behind the Here Active Listening System, announced today (June 12) that it has secured investments from concert giant Live Nation, label group Universal Music and talent agency WME.
Doppler's "bionic ears" feature two wireless buds that allow a listener to "control and personalize" a live audio environment, an innovation that's well-suited for concerts and live performances. The idea is to let the user effectively make a personal "mix" of whatever he or she is hearing.
A Kickstarter campaign for the product has surpassed $375,000, the company also announced, surpassing its original $250,000 30-day goal in less than 48 hours. It runs through July and is offering the buds and app at $199 before they are available on the commercial market.
