Topic: Lifestyle Enhancement Devices

Kat and Andy join Dave this week to walk through some of the most interesting hearables on the market, highlighting various features and aspects of each device that stand out. 

In addition, the three talk through some of the recent news pertaining to the world of hearables and the use cases that they support, including Spotify's recent update that allows podcasts to now include full music tracks into podcasts, creating entirely new formats of audio content. 

In addition, Foursquare has rolled out its new Marsbot Audio AR platform that has a number of very intriguing use cases and might be shedding a light on how the usage of hearables will evolve across the next few years.

The more you can do with hearing aids & hearables, the more incentive to wear them.

Guests: Dr. Cliff Olson, Audiologist and Owner of Applied Hearing Solutions; Andy Bellavia, Director of Market Development at Knowles Corp

Topic: Breaking Down this Seminal Moment in Hearing Aid Innovation

Cliff and Andy join Dave this week to discuss the flurry of new hearing aids that have hit the market, and speak to the broad level of tech innovation that these devices represent.

Finally, the three walk through some of the emerging use cases that hearing aids are enabling, and why these secondary use cases not only have the potential to improve the value proposition of the devices, but also further enable the professionals to enhance their own value proposition.

Guests: Andy Bellavia, Director of Market Development at Knowles Corp; Carl Thomas, Founder of Audiowings & Hearables Expert

Topic: "Hearables Aren't the Thing... They're What Give You Access to THE Thing"

This episode stems from a 2019 twitter thread from Carl, in which he posited that hearables are a portal to something much larger (riffing off an iconic scene from the AMC TV show, Halt & Catch Fire.)

Carl, Andy & Dave go around the horn to share what they think hearables will ultimately give rise to - similar to how computers eventually gave way to the internet.

028 - Nikolaj Hviid - BragiOS: The Intelligent Hub Connecting a World Full of Sensors (feat. Andy Bellavia)

Play
Read more

Guests: Nikolaj Hviid, CEO of Bragi, and Andy Bellavia, Director of Market Development at Knowles Corp

Topic: BragiOS: The Intelligent Hub Connecting a World Full of Sensors

Andy and Dave sit down with Nikolaj Hviid, the CEO of Bragi, to learn the full story of Bragi - how it started, the "proof of concept" hardware phase, and the current phase with BragiOS. Last year, Bragi sold off its hardware business to get back to its roots as a software-based company and shifted the whole company's focus on BragiOS. 

Throughout the conversation, Nikolaj shares the vision of BragiOS and compares it to a sort of "hive-mind" of sensors that are operating as a collective group to gather insights. As Nikolaj mentions, sensors are increasingly becoming smaller and cheaper, allowing for broader proliferation. What BragiOS intends to do is connect and unify those sensors together within BragiOS so that all the various sensors can communicate amongst each other, to identify specific insights based on the aggregate of what's being sensed. 

This was one of the most insightful and futuristic episodes yet. Enjoy!

Hearables and Voice with Dave Kemp and Andy Bellavia - Voicebot Podcast Ep 127

Play
Read more
What are hearables? They are wireless earbuds and headphones that provide always-available voice assistant access. Think AirPods, Pixel Buds, Echo Buds, Galaxy buds. At home, you have an always-listening smart speaker but on the go having that just in your phone is a bit limiting. Connecting the voice assistant from a smartphone to your ears creates a more efficient and private interaction.    Today we talk about the technology underlying hearables and why we aren’t getting 12-hour, all-day battery life. We also discuss applications, consumer adoption, and how the big players intend to compete. 2020 is going to see a lot more hearables action driven by new apps and new products such as AirPods Pro and Amazon Echo Buds.    Dave Kemp works for Oaktree products, the leading U.S. distributor of hearing aids and an expert in the hearables space ranging from prescription solutions to consumer products such as AirPods. He is also a contributor to Voicebot.ai on hearables topics and has his own regular podcast and blog called Future Ear.    Also, with us is Andy Bellavia. He has a long tenure in the sound and hearing market with past work for consumer hearables innovator Bragi, hearing aid tech company Nuheara and currently as a BD lead for Knowles Corp. — a company that has components in the new Amazon Echo Buds.

004 - Andy Bellavia - VoiceFirst Hearables Use Cases

Guest: Andy Bellavia

Topic: VoiceFirst Hearables Use Cases

After discussing the evolving hearables landscape in part one, Andy and Dave now move into some of the new use cases that voice-assistant enabled hearables will begin to offer. One area that seems ripe for some innovation is around audio content consumption and the ways in which we access said content. Perhaps this combination will offer new ways to curate and discover audio content specific to the user's interests. 

GPS-based applications also represent a new avenue with lots of possibilities, which the two speak about in depth. The idea of having conversations with your voice assistant about loads of information that's already stored in the app ecosystem.
