The world is constantly evolving as technology advances. We’ve explored the skies and seen the deepest parts of the ocean. We’ve made some phenomenal breakthroughs in the field of medicine as well. In short, technology has helped revolutionize the world.
With the help of technology, we’ve been able to understand the human body better and we’ve been able to push the limits of what the body is capable of doing.
Sports have always been about being the best version of ourselves. No matter who wins – be it an individual changing the course of events, or a team working in tandem –it’s important that they give it their best. Put their best foot forward.
Technology is helping people become better every day. Enhancing their capabilities in incremental steps. Thus, it shouldn’t come as a surprise when you hear that there are several companies creating products to help athletes improve their game. In fact, this isn’t just limited to athletes, but is accessible to people from all walks of life.
One such organization is Halo Neuroscience.
Working at the intersection of technology and biology, the company came out with their newest product, the Halo Sport 2, just last year.
The Halo Sport 2 is a headphone which acts as a brain stimulator which activates and enhances muscle memory development. The theory is that when the brain is learning something new, there are pathways, or neural connections, formed between neurons and these connections are essential if the brain is to learn anything new. The scientific term for this is called neuroplasticity.
In essence, neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout our life. It allows neurons (nerve cells) to compensate for injury and disease and adjust their activities in response to new situations or to changes in their environment.
To put it in simpler terms, neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to create and strengthen neural networks. The more ‘plastic’ the brain is, the faster you will learn. When paired up with high-quality training, a person can produce exceptional results. These headphones are useful to athletes, musicians and may even have implications for military use.
In short, these headphones can be used by anyone looking to better themselves.
These headphones can help in building skill, endurance, strength in sports, while also helping musicians learn and hone their skill-set. Songwriters, pianists and guitarists are able to learn music faster while Olympic cyclists and endurance runners are able to build their endurance quicker than someone not using the headphones. Similarly, golfers and NBA players are able to develop their skillset much faster than those not using any such device. At least that’s the promise of the brand.
Most athletes (not only professional but also amateurs and hobbyists) have seen a difference in their performance after having used these headphones.
While most buyers are happy with their performance after using their Halo headphones, while several others believed it is the placebo effect (a psychological effect without the device actually working) at play. There are also complaints from buyers regarding the quality of the primers and the lifespan of the headphones – namely that they are too overpriced for the short lifespan the device has.
Judging from the tingling sensation that users have noted feeling on their head while wearing the Halo Headphones, followed by the improvement in performance they have experienced afterwards, it sure seems that the device works.
But this is something you’d best try out for yourselves. For early-technology adapters and sci-fi fans to burn, this is an easy purchase decision to make.
