SOUL Electronics has released its newest earphones, the RUN FREE PRO BIO powered by ‘BEFLEX BiomechEngine’. Designed to serve as a personal running coach, the RUN FREE PRO BIO are billed as ‘the world’s first AI earphones with gait analysis’, offering real-time voice coaching to guide the user through their running program.
By measuring various gait analysis parameters such as cadence, symmetry, step length and width, balance, and even head tilt angle, the sweat-proof earbuds claim to minimize the risk of injury and improve running efficiency to maximize results.
Using the SOUL FIT companion app, the earphones will collect gait analysis data, monitoring running form and providing real-time coaching data for users to review after every run. The RUN FREE PRO BIO earphones boast up to 11 hours of playback with one charge and SOUL’s signature audio with Bluetooth for connectivity.
Available in Power Grey and Passion Red with multiple ear tip sizes, the RUN FREE PRO BIO is ‘suitable for any user in any running environment and features a reflective cable with still LED lights for added safety during night runs.’
“The RUN FREE PRO BIO not only provides our customers with superior sound quality, but with a myriad of special features that allows them to improve their running performance” said Angus Tsang, Vice President of Engineering at SOUL Electronics.
“We wanted to release the world’s first AI earphones with GAIT Analysis that makes running more effective for any user, taking into consideration the time of day they choose to run, whether it is outdoors or at a gym and providing them with the best technology possible.”
