Private Ear™ are a start-up company that is developing a new and innovative type of custom in-ear monitors (CIEM), or if you will, electronic earplugs. Earplugs that both protect and please the ears of musicians and music-lovers.
Last spring, Private Ear received a nomination for the MedTech Innovation Award in the Dutch New Venture competition, an annual competition run by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Mc Kinsey & Company. P.E. is rapidly expanding its network within the field, for instance: the Dutch branch of Sonion provide us with receivers, advice and evaluation of measurements.
We are currently building our first prototypes, which will be completed by the end of this year. In the course of 2016, we will start building pilot series that will be extensively tested by our large network of musicians and sound engineers.
