Wednesday, April 13th, 2016

By Julian Chokkattu — January 22, 2016 Read more: Follow us: @digitaltrends on Twitter | digitaltrendsftw on Facebook Smart bands may be getting a bit stale, or in any event they are saturating the market. CES 2016 was littered with wrist-wear, mostly due to the sheer number of redundant fitness trackers — but there’s a new place on our bodies that companies are starting to utilize for wearables — the ear. And just how wearables targeted towards the wrist gradually began offering various size options, there’s a company that’s interested in providing you the perfectly-sized earbud. No, they’re not […]

Guitar Messenger: NAMM 2016: Ultimate Ears Pro – In-Ear Monitors

Wednesday, February 10th, 2016

Ultimate Ears Pro general manager Philippe Depallens gives us an insight about the company’s approach to creating industry leading in-ear monitors for musicians and engineers. From The beginning of Ultimate Ears Ultimate Ears began because Alex Van Halen and his monitor engineer were tired of having things get between them and their music. So they took matters into their own hands and changed music forever. After working on prototypes for the band, they started sharing the first Custom In-Ear Monitors with other people as dedicated to music as they were. Selling them out of the back of their tour […]

Ultimate Ears is Refining the Custom IEM Process

Monday, February 2nd, 2015

BYAUDIOHEAD – FEBRUARY 2, 2015 The custom side of In-Ears has always been plagued by a very elongated wait process with many hoops to jump though (including a trip to the audiologist for many). Goopy ear molds need to be made and shipped, and a manufacturing process of three or more months has become commonplace.  Ultimate Ears is looking to change all that. We got a chance to see the first steps of this new process at last year’s CanJam at Rocky Mountain AudioFest, which addressed both construction times and the somewhat difficult process of selecting the CIEM product that was […]

Sunday, February 1st, 2015

Examiner NAMM SHOW 2015 – Cody Lovaas gets fit with Custom Ear monitors at Ultimate Ears By: Marissa Carter As many musicians and artists know, getting custom in-ear monitors and hearing protection use to take weeks to get and was a very laborious process to produce. With the new 3D scanning technology by United Sciences / Ultimate Ears it has remarkably cut down the wait time between scan, mold – actually printing – and the device in your ear. Ultimate Ears new 3D optical ear scanning technology will make molded earpieces a thing of the past. The new scanning process […]

Custom Headphones on Four 3D Printers

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

United Sciences, an Atlanta company that develops 3D scanning technology, is using four MakerBot Replicator Minis to create molds for custom silicone headphones. When made on several 3D printers at once, the mold takes 20 minutes, and assembly takes another 30 — an improvement over the four-hour process on an industrial 3D printer. “It really brings it to the point where you can bring this to a store,” says co-founder Karol Hatzilias.

Custom Headphones Minus the Goo

Saturday, January 24th, 2015

By Lauren Dragan • Posted: Jan 24, 2015 In-ear headphone fans rejoice: the custom monitor is now available without the goo. This week at the NAMM show in Anaheim, Ultimate Ears showed off its partnership with United Sciences, which has come up with a way to use a laser 3D scanner to take a virtual “impression” of your ear canal. It’s all very sci-fi, and could change the entire face of headphones as we know it. How does it work? First of all, for the uninitiated, the process of getting ear impressions has been largely unchanged for quite some time. […]

United Sciences eFit Digital Ear Impressions

Friday, January 16th, 2015

Some of my favorite headphones, regardless of form factor, are my top custom-fit in-ear monitors (IEMs). So, as a custom-IEM-wearing Head-Fi’er, perhaps I’m biased, but what I’m going to tell you about in this post was easily my favorite thing at CES this year: The eFit digital ear impressions system. Why? Because I think this amazing system is going to be one very critical step in getting custom-fit in-ear monitors–and custom-fit hearables/wearables–into a store near you. If you watch our Head-Fi TV videos, you may have seen our recent episode about Ultimate Ears’ new “digital journey” process, which involves 3D-scanning/digitizing […]

Custom-Made In-Ear Headphones Created Using 3D Scanning Technology

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

By Doris – Jan 12, 2015 The audio and infotainment companyHarman teamed up with 3D scanning specialist United Sciences to develop custom-made headphones. The in-ear phones are created by 3D scanning the wearer’s ears for a perfect fit. Therefor the eFit 3D scanner developed by United Sciences captures the surface of the ear within a few minutes. The 3D model is then used to 3D print a mold, that will be filled with silicon. Harman uses the MakerBot Replicator Mini 3D printers to simultaneously create all the separate parts of the mold. The whole process takes about an hour and […]

CES 2015: Revolutionary Earphones Created with Inner Ear Scanning Technology

Saturday, January 10th, 2015

SOFTPEDIA The eFit scanner uses bursts of light to map the surface Over the decades, earphones, earbuds in particular, have gone through countless redesigns, leading to there being several standard sizes, shapes and materials typical for their engineering. However, nothing beats custom fitting, something that united Sciences definitely agrees with. However, custom fitting for the ear isn’t as easy to do as for, say, shoes and clothing. It’s not like consumers will glibly go and have their ears probed whenever they go out looking for an earphone set. And yet, many people use them extensively, while jogging, when taking a call, […]

3D scan designs headphones just for you

Saturday, January 10th, 2015

BY ANNIE PARK JAN 10, 2015 LAS VEGAS — There’s nothing worse than having an amazing set of in-ear headphones constantly fall out. We’ve all felt the frustration when those silicone buds pop out during a jog or after a big yawn. Many audio companies have tried to counter the issue by offering jumbo-sized silicone tips. While they do stay in the ear, the jamming can be uncomfortable. Harman revealed a solution at CES this week — custom earpieces molded to perfection using 3D scanning technology. With their partner United Sciences, the audio and infotainment company developed headphones that seal […]

Here’s Scientific Proof That Some People Just Can’t Wear Earbuds — And How to Solve It

Friday, January 9th, 2015

By Derrick Rossignol January 09, 2015 The first earbuds were patented in 1891, and they have been a royal pain in the ass ever since. A large minority of people knows this, but they’ve been mostly silent on the subject. The tides are turning, though, and a new class of products is letting everyone in on the secret: The biggest problem with earbuds isn’t the constant tangling — it’s that they don’t fit every ear. Observe: The issue: The trouble with earbuds is that they’re designed as a one-size-fits-all product, but that’s not how human ears work. As Brian Fligor, the chief […]
