Just like fingerprints, everyone’s hearing is different. Yet most earbuds, even the priciest and most sophisticated, treat us all the same. Nuratrue ($199.99) takes a different approach—gauging the quirks of your hearing by playing about a minute’s worth of various tones and measuring the sounds that your cochleas produce in response, tones that are inaudible to humans. Nuratrue then applies a custom aural profile to anything you listen to, augmenting specific auditory ranges to create a richer, more detailed experience. Originally launched as over-the-ear headphones that earned innovation awards from Red Dot, CES and SXSW, these new true-wireless buds open a hidden door to all the detail you never even knew you were missing in your favorite music. —A.V.H.
