Nura are an audio brand known for bringing their expertise in sound personalisation to their products, and they’ve the latest beneficiary of their skills in the NuraTrue wireless earbud.
The NuraTrue (£199 / $199 / €229 / AU$299) feature the company’s patented technology, using highly sensitive microphones to listen out for otoacoustic emissions (that is sounds that originate from the cochlear in the inner ear) that contain information about a user’s hearing.
The NuraTrue’s self-learning engine takes that information to create a unique hearing profile, which in Nura’s words provides depth, detail and clarity “like no other device can”. There’s also a choice of choosing the preferred level of bass to tailor low frequencies to your tastes.
The NuraTrue feature active noise cancellation technology to block external sounds, while the Social Mode allows for external sounds to filter through if you want more awareness of your surroundings. The built-in microphones also aim to offer crystal clear call quality.
The true wireless feature touch capacitive buttons over physical controls, and in terms of fit there are four ear-tip options, two wing attachments and two foam tips, which should grant them an aspect of versatility in terms of using them for exercise. They look a bit big in size, aping the look of Microsoft’s Surface Earbuds presumably to improve the earbuds’ noise isolation and keep outside sounds at bay before the Hybrid ANC technology kicks in.

There’s no mention in the press release of any wireless charging support.
