While Elon Musk continues to develop music streaming brain chips, DropLabs offers a different way to experience music. With the new EP 01 sneakers, music lovers can finally feel the music they are listening to.

The EP 01 sneakers work with its embedded patented technology in the midsole. The technology takes the audio from any connected device and converts it into stereo. Then, the sound is delivered through the footwear via Bluetooth in the form of bass vibration.

“The embedded software platform allows us to continue to refine the experience,” DropLabs CEO Susan Paley says. “And provide more unique customization at the individual level. “We’ve developed a proprietary technology that we have integrated into the midsole of the sneaker that converts audio signals into vibrations. When these vibrations are delivered through your feet and synchronized with what you hear in your ears, it is a completely transformative experience for digital entertainment.”

According to DropLabs, customers have been drawn to the shoes because it helps re-create the live music experience. Especially during the coronavirus pandemic, these shoes offer many of the same feelings we experience at live shows.
