Tune In: Innovation at Lucid Audio

HLT Headphones, Hearing, Music, PSAP, Uncategorized Tags: , , , , , 0 Comments

The Landscape of Hearing Technology

The Guardian recently published a feature in the technology section of their paper titled, “10 Most Influential Headphones” detailing the progression of influential headphones over time.

You probably won’t recognize the first headphone on the Guardian’s list, an in-ear device built in 1891. However, you might remember the Walkman Headphones from 1979, or the Apple Earbuds back in 2001.

All of the headphones on the list were innovative and influential when they were produced.  Most were seen as status symbols promising access to an enhanced listening experience. So, tune in and learn more about the newest innovations in headphone technology.

Building on the Legacy 

Lucid Audio’s products expand on this legacy of innovation in hearing technology.  These products, ranging from the Hearband to the Bluetooth Wireless Hearing Headphones to the Enrich Personal Sound Amplification Products, all add to the history of hearing-related products.

Here’s what makes Lucid Audio’s innovations historic: Lucid Audio helps integrate one’s inner world with the outer world.  The Hearband and the Hearing Headphones allow you to create your own world by streaming your choice of historic headphonesaudio directly into your ears.  With these products, you can lose yourself in the soothing melodies of jazz music, or in your favorite podcast. However, what makes Lucid Audio’s products truly innovative is the ability to tune into the sounds beyond your headphones with added clarity.  This is a feature that these other headphones just don’t have.

While listening to your choice of audio within your headphones, you can turn up the sound on the outside world and tune in to the sounds around you.  You can merge the beat of hip hop with the city sounds around you.  You can merge your favorite classical tunes with the sounds of birds chirping in your garden.  The possibilities for unification are endless, and you’ll have access to all of the sounds in the world, without missing a beat.

The Enrich Personal Sound Amplification Products (PSAPs) are also quite historic.  These products aim to make hearing enhancement more accessible to people of all income levels and backgrounds.  PSAPs amplify outside noises, granting enhanced hearing to people who are experiencing difficulty hearing at an affordable price.  The Enrich PSAPs start at only $99! This type of hearing accessibility is truly historic.

The Future of Headphones

HLT Headphones Tags: , , 0 Comments

The first headphones manufactured specifically for music were invented by John C. Koss in 1958. His stereo headphones changed the way we listened to music and introduced a new era in personal audio.

Since that historic moment, personal audio technology has continued to evolve. Headphones with amplification have gotten louder, smaller, and lighter. Audio quality standards have also changed dramatically. The scratchy strains of the past would never be able to compete with even the lowest quality digital relays of today.  One thing has remained the same for most of the headphones you see; they are still mainly used for music.

Personal Audio: AMPEDTMThe Future of Headphones Amplification; http://www.lucidaudio.com

Lucid Audio is taking headphone technology into the future. Our groundbreaking AMPEDTM technology is redefining the personal in personal audio by giving you the power to fully control your auditory experience.

  • Turn up outside sounds, up to 9x amplification, or block them out completely.
  • Protect your precious hearing with Sound Activated Compression.
  • Hi gain omni directional microphones with independent volume controls give you an unparalleled ability to hear whatever it is you want with crystal clarity.

Unlike other headphones with amplification, Lucid Audio’s headphones and neckbands are not just for music. You can use them to customize your world and enhance your everyday experiences.

Future of Personal Audio: AMPEDTM

Imagine using the technology in headphones with amplification for more than just entertainment. Imagine using them to enhance your sense of hearing in a way that improves your daily life.

  • In the college lecture halls of the future, everyone will be able to focus during class. One student can turn up the volume of the lecture with her Lucid Audio Neckband with amplification, while another student blocks out the entire world for more focus during test time.
  • Work-at-home parents will be able to teleconference in peace, knowing that they can hear any suspicious sounds from their children in the other room. No sound at all coming from the next room? They will have the ability to turn up the ambient sound and hear every little giggle. And if they need to excuse themselves, they can control call volume and connection with a push of a button.
  • Grandpa will never need to turn the TV down to please the rest of the family. He’ll simply use his Lucid Audio AMPED™ Bluetooth® wireless headphone or neckband with amplification to adjust the volume however he chooses.
  • The future even looks healthier! Everyone will be able to access their audio comfortably and wirelessly, so there will be no excuse not to hit the gym. People who enjoy running or walking outdoors will have the added safety of knowing they can turn up the volume on the world around them to hear every car, every horn, every time!

3 Ways to Create a Better New Year’s Resolution

HLT AMPED, Headphones Tags: , , 0 Comments

The beginning of the year is a great time to refocus and prioritize. With some planning, a little effort, and the right tools, you can set and achieve your new year’s goals.

What Do You Really Want?

Setting a meaningful goal can be difficult. Here are some tips to help you create real resolutions that you can actually achieve.

  1. Grab a piece of paper and spend 5 or 10 minutes writing about the changes you want to see in your life. What you learn could surprise you.
  2. Saying “I want to compete in a triathlon” may not be realistic. Make a list of the steps you need to take to accomplish your ultimate goal, and concentrate on them one at a time.
  3. Don’t overdo it! Keep your list to three items, or less.

Stay the Course!

Setting goals creates a strong, but temporary, surge of motivation. To achieve your goals, you will need to keep yourself focused.

  1. Prioritize your time. Most goals are the cumulative result of smaller, daily actions. Set aside a time every day to work on your ideas. Put it on your calendar or set an alarm.
  2. Create a quiet space for your work. A set of higher performance headphones can help create calm and quiet in even the most chaotic environment.
  3. Review your goals regularly, and track your progress to help stay focused.
