"New Earbuds Let You Record 3D Audio To Your Phone"

Looks like it didn't reach it's kickstarter goal. Bugger.
A new Kickstarter product from Binauric called OpenEars could make recording binaural audio easier than ever by building the microphones into in-ear headphones. Many binaural microphones try to simulate the shape and density of the human head in order to reproduce the way sound actually reaches our ears. OpenEars sidestep that by using your own human head and letting you simply place the microphones in the right spot. The microphones also double as wireless Bluetooth headphones, and a mode called HearThrough allows mixing in live sound from the environment with music you're listening to, making it safer to ride a bike while listening to music, for example.
