KC’s tech company turns up the volume with micro-hearables

Ever notice how the more tech devices evolve, the smaller they seem to get? Micro-hearables, small computerized speakers that can be placed in the ear like earbuds, are a case in point. Micro-hearables are a fourth the size of other hearables on the market and have a 14-hour battery life.

What was that?

Ear Micro Bionics created these little marvels that not only fit comfortably in the ear canal (pay attention, Apple!), but also enable the user to listen to music, use voice commands with smart assistants like Siri and Alexa, and control apps and smart home devices.

They also serve as an activity tracker and can provide more accurate vital signs, such as heart rate and blood oxygen levels. And perhaps our favorite feature: The device can read head movements, so if your phone rings and it’s someone you don’t want to talk to, you can just shake your head no.
