Nura's new learning NuraLoop earphones are up for pre-order
Nura, the Australian company behind the critically acclaimed NuraPhone learning headphones has announced its NuraLoop Bluetooth learning earphones are now available for pre-order. Like the original NuraPhone, the NuraLoop uses software to test and tailor each listener’s listening experience individually. It achieves this by measuring the otoacoustic emissions from each ear to adapt the headphone’s frequency response accordingly to help deliver more detail in the listening experience – or, at least, that’s the claim.
Although not a truly wireless experience as each earphone is connected by a cord, the NuraLoop features a secure fitting design that holds the earphones firmly in place by looping over each ear. It also comes with three tips to help users achieve the best possible overall fit. The NuraLoop offers up to 16 hours of battery life and, as such, doesn’t come with a charging case. If low on power, a 10-minute quick-charge will deliver up to two hours of listening. A significant plus point is that they also come with Active Noise Cancellation built-in as well as a Social Mode for listening to ambient sound.
Nura has also fitted the device with Bluetooth 5 streaming technology and Qualcomm’s aptX HD audio codec. This supports 48kHz/24-bit LPCM audio data and can even enhance audio quality of standard resolution files. Qualcomm claims that the audio quality is ‘better-than-CD’ and ‘indistinguishable’ from high-res audio. Nura is currently offering a 30 percent discount and free shipping on orders made in the next 48 hours taking the price down from approximately US$200 to approximately US$145.
