Human Headphones


Human Headphones


Human is the reinvention of mobile music where high tech, intuitive user interface, fashion and superior comfort merge to create a never-seen-before experience. The headphones and interactions feel natural, and less like a piece of consumer electronics attached to the body.

Comfort, easy donning, stability weight, driver and mic positions have been considered to create the optimum user experience. In all, more than 700 3D prints were required to refine the ergonomics of the headphones.

The touchless gesture control system transcends other interface technologies by taking advantage of the device’s outer real estate. Using natural human gestures, listeners can execute multiple playback controls — including volume adjustment, pause, play, skip a track, replaying a track, accept/deny call, and additional feature controls.
