The first step of set­ting up these over-the-ear head­phones is a 90-sec­ond lis­ten­ing test to cre­ate a graph of your hear­ing called an au­dio­gram. You lis­ten to mu­sic from eight dif­fer­ent seg­ments of the au­di­ble spec­trum in each ear at in­creas­ing vol­ume to map how sen­si­tive you are to dif­fer­ent fre­quen­cies. A cus­tom sound pro­file— which you can see in the com­pan­ion app— tunes sound re­sponse to each in­di­vid­ual ear.
