How does EAVE's solution work?

The EAVE WORK MKI headset continually samples the ambient noise level and wirelessly uploads the data gathered to the EAVE PEAK platform, which creates an online noise ‘heat map’. The MKI enables communication in noise using a microphone array combined with Digital Signal Processing. The MKI is Bluetooth enabled. 

What is the EAVE WORK MKI’s battery life?

The rechargeable battery lasts for 30-60 hours depending on the functionalities enabled. It takes approximately three hours to fully charge the battery.

How much does it cost?

The EAVE WORK solution is sold as a monthly subscription based service. The price depends on how long you need the EAVE WORK solution for, what level of service is required and how many people need to use it. PEAK is accessed on a monthly subscription basis.
