Building the next generation of hearables
To enhance and preserve the auditory quality of life.
EERS develops enabling technology for noise management, hearing protection, audio clarity and voice intelligibility through devices that are comfortable and secure. We are experts in real-time signal processing that result in applications for augmented hearing, industrial, consumer, wellness, and medical use cases.
Our Bio-mechanical skills allow us to map and address the complexity of the human ear canal to build comfortable, usable, and manufacturable earpieces that are acoustically efficient.
Combining a strong IP portfolio, technical know-how and deep domain knowledge, we work with our partners to produce product ready functionality, enabling a path to commercialization.
Through our collaboration with brands, educational institutions, and regulatory associations, EERS is improving the hearing health and auditory experience of people worldwide.
We are a unique team in that we can tackle each phase of technological development.
EERS has co-funded the EERS-ETS Industrial Research Chair in In-Ear Technologies for years, and through that partnership, built new technologies employing machine learning, real-time audio processing, earpiece and product design creating solutions that can be viable in the field. The EERS Science and Engineering teams then transform these proof-of-concepts into working prototypes targeted to different market applications.
These new working systems benefit from EERS innovations and patented methods that will empower our partners or licensees going forward.
Our Roots: In-Ear Technology
The ear is an optimal interaction point for technology to observe and influence the human condition. Through years of engineering, EERS are expert at processing what is within the ear canal, around you as ambient audio, and the physical motion the head is experiencing.
From these gateways, it is possible to protect and monitor your auditory health, enhance your hearing and the ways you interact with your environment. EERS systems can provide clear communications in extreme noise without having a microphone anywhere near the speaker’s mouth. Algorithms can tune your music to your own hearing, specific to either ear canal.
The ear is also a source for important bio signals like heartbeat, breathing rate, and even EEG that can help hearables support your physical activity, determine your current emotional state, or even take actions by detecting that EEG patterns.
