My first job was at Doppler Labs
, a startup focusing on hearing and in-ear computing. Doppler Labs is best known for launching Here One
, selective sound controlling earbuds.
Here One's tech was originally marketed to audiophiles and urbanites. Who doesn’t want to amp reverb at a live concert, or tune out the rumble of the NYC subway? When we launched our wireless earbuds on Kickstarter
, we saw that our product had massive potential to change the lives of people with hearing loss, tinnitus, misophonia, auditory processing disorder, and hyperacusis. We started to invest in hearing health initiatives to support these communities.
