Wear is described by its inventors as an assistive listening device designed to improve quality of life for people with hearing loss. Eric Rosenthal and Michelle Temple have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the project.

In addition to being stylish—a theme that has been cropping up a lot lately in regards to wearable devices—Wear is a high fidelity directional analog microphone that is significantly lower in price than existing hearing aids. The microphone can be used with any pair of headphones, has a volume control, is rechargeable, and comfortable to wear.

Rosenthal and Temple have been developing the technology in their Brooklyn Studio for the past two years. The technology is described on their Kickstarter page.
