Tech company Nervana are selling a new pair of headphones for around $299 U.S. but these aren’t your normal everyday headphones….they look like your regular ear bud type but they will also release dopamine into your system!
Ani Brannon who is the CEO of Nervana had this to say:
“We have a device that sends an electrical signal through the ear canal to stimulate the release of dopa-mine in your brain. There’s an electrical signal that’s paired with music. It follows the beat of the music, and it makes it really pleasant. Through a conductive earbud, it sends a message through the vagus nerve in your ear, which sends a message to the brain to release dopamine, your feel-good neurotransmitter that naturally occurs in the brain.”
I must admit I’m intrigued although i don’t think anyone with an addictive personality should get these.
