SOUL Electronics debuts AI earphones with gait analysis

SOUL Electronics BLADE

SOUL Electronics, a global leader in consumer audio designed for the active and fitness-oriented lifestyle, has announced two earphones ‘powered by Beflex Biomech Engine’ which monitor running form and provide real-time coaching to maximize running performance and minimize potential injury.

SOUL Electronics and Beflex have implemented gait analysis into a new range of earphones – RUN FREE PRO BIO and BLADE. This is commonly used in sports biomechanics to ‘help professional athletes run more efficiently and also make improvements on their gestures to lower risk of injury’.

Paired with an iOS or Android AI analyst app, runners are able to track and analyze runs to improve performance over time.

RUN FREE PRO BIO features:

  • Measures running performance and safety level, while providing real-time voice coaching to guide runners through training
  • iOS or Android AI analyst app tracks and analyzes runs to improve performance over time
  • Measures speed, distance, cadence, step length, step width, vertical oscillation, head tilt angle, stance/flight time, shock, maximum leg force, balance, and consistency
  • Boasts SOUL’s signature sound with Bluetooth version 4.0 system
  • Sweat proof function gives added protection from sweat and water
  • Ergonomic interchangeable ear locks give a seal
  • Boasts up to 8 hours of playback time with one charge
  • Includes different ear tip sizes for fit
  • Retails for US$149.99

BLADE features:

  • Equipped with bio-sensors to monitor heart rate, elevation, cadence, speed, time and location
  • Measures speed, distance, cadence, step length, step width, vertical oscillation, head tilt angle, stance/flight time, shock, maximum leg force, balance and consistency

“Gait Analysis was formerly conducted with full equipment in a specific environment, but with Beflex’s technology, the technology can now be implemented in our earphones through a method called ‘Advanced Markerless Gait Capture’,” said Patrick Tang, CEO at SOUL Electronics. “By eliminating the markers, we are able to bring a range of earphones to market that make sport and fitness junkies’ lives easier, maximizing their workouts and providing them with the best technology to improve performance over time.”

“Beflex is a company developed by a team of young, professional research engineers keen on gait analysis and biomechanics,” added Beflex CEO Juho Jung. “This is an exciting moment to announce our partnership with SOUL as they are the world’s first brand to apply the technology to their earphones and we are confident that this collection of earphones are going to be the next generation of sports wearable accessible to mass markets.”
