Here’s what adding neural sensors on the MW75’s earpads can do.
These headphones use an integrated Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) to read the wearer’s brainwaves and provide valuable insights to enhance focus, reduce stress, and optimize mental well-being.
What the MW75-Neuro Headphones Can Do
The MW75-Neuro are equipped with EEG sensors integrated into the headphones’ ear cushions. These track the user’s brainwaves which are then transmitted and analyzed via the Nurable app.
This technology can currently be used in multiple ways, such as:
- Focus tracking and optimization
- Stress detection and burnout prevention
- Performance tracking and insights
Focus tracking and optimization
By using neural sensors and advanced signal processing algorithms, the MW75-Neuro can measure your focus levels. With these measurements, your headphones will automatically adjust some of your settings to help you stay in the zone.
For example, the headphones can automatically activate noise cancellation and set your phone to “Do Not Disturb” mode when they detect that you’re reaching your peak focus time.
Stress detection and burnout prevention
In addition to focus tracking, the MW75-Neuro headphones can recognize signs of stress based on the wearer’s brainwave patterns. This allows users to become more aware of their stress levels and take necessary breaks to prevent burnout.
The app also sends alerts when you need “Brain Breaks” the moment the headphones detect that you need to recharge.
Performance tracking and insights
While the Neurable app provides real-time tracking, all data about the whole work is also stored through the app. With a press of a button, the headphones will give you a detailed analysis of your work session.
This report highlights your peak focus times along with a ‘focus score’ and the periods when you experienced the most stress. You can use this information to plan out your work day better, identify when to rest, and develop your habits.
Additional Features and Specs
The MW75-Neuro stand out not only for their neurotechnology but also for their audio specs. Here are a few notable features:
- Angled 40mm Beryllium-coated drivers designed to produce rich, warm sound, similar to the original MW75 headphones.
- Bluetooth 5.2 with SBC, AAC, and aptX Adaptive codec support
- Up to 32 hours of battery life (28 hours with ANC and neuro tracking)
- Three active noise-canceling modes: Adaptive ANC for automatic adjustments, Max for noisy environments, and All-Day for power-saving.
- Customizable EQ and access to Ambient Listening modes through the M&D Connect app.
Availability and Pricing
Available for pre-order at the Neurable website, the MW75-Neuro come in four color options: onyx, silver, olive, and navy for $649. These are expected to be released before the end of March 2024.
Neurable and Master & Dynamic are still developing more intriguing applications of the current technology.
For example, at the CES 2024, Neurable showed a test video. It featured a subject silently mouthing words like “skip track” or “pause music” while listening to music. The headphones then triggered these actions based on the mouthed commands.
This showcases how the MW75-Neuro can potentially enable voice assistants like Siri and Google Assistant to respond to near-thought commands.
Another possibility is how this technology could simplify switching between listening to a conversation and resuming music. The headphones could automatically recognize what you’re trying to focus on and adjust accordingly.
