When it comes to headphones, it really isn’t a one-size-fits-all product. Different people have different preferences when it comes to their sound, like how some like it more bass-heavy, while others prefer a more neutral tone, and some prefer emphasis placed on the mids. This means that while a pair of headphones might be highly-praised, it isn’t necessary the one for you.

This is where the Nura headphones comes into play. These are a pair of headphones designed by an Australian company that claims it will be able to adjust and adapt itself to your hearing. The company claims that our hearing is unique like our fingerprints, and different people have different sensitivities when it comes to frequencies of sound.

So by putting on a pair of Nura headphones, within 30 seconds it will be able to measure your hearing and adapt itself accordingly, thus ideally it should deliver to users the “perfect” sound, at least according to their hearing sensitivity. So far initial feedback based on the prototypes have appeared to be well-received, but we suppose at the end of the day you really need to try them on yourself.

Nura’s headphones aren’t the first of its kind. Last month we reported on a pair of earphones called Even which offered up similar adaptive capabilities, but there are differences, one of which is that the Even are a pair of earphones, but the Nura is a pair of headphones. Nura has raised $980,000 at this time of writing and with 9 days to go, it is possible that they might hit the $1 million mark.
