“Gait Analysis was formerly conducted with full equipment in a specific environment, but with Beflex Inc.’s technology, the technology can now be implemented in our earphones through a method called ‘Advanced Markerless Gait Capture’,” said Patrick Tang, CEO of SOUL Electronics. “By eliminating the markers, we are able to bring a range of earphones to market that make sport and fitness junkies’ lives easier, maximizing their workouts and providing them with the best technology to improve performance over time.”

SOUL has a rich history in delivering innovative technology and concepts including high-quality audio, noise canceling, and wireless products. Renowned sound engineers and Grammy award-winning artist Chris “Ludacris” Bridges created the first headphones together.

SOUL’S new partners, Beflex Inc. developed the world’s first biomechanics solution that extracts accurate running form information based on head motion data. Beflex Inc. is working to integrate its unique solution to all types of head mounted devices and to provide profound activity data and coaching that is related to running form to improve performance and reduce injury risks.

“This is an exciting moment to announce our partnership with SOUL as they are the world’s first brand to apply the technology to their earphones and we are confident that this collection of earphones are going to be the next generation of sports wearable accessible to mass markets,” said Juho Jung of  CEO, Beflex Inc..
