Thread Starter 
This is a kickstarter project started by a M.I.T. post-doctoral physicist, a master degree biologist and a experienced mechanical engineer. 

Briefly, the IEMs have 
1) mp3 player built in;
2) no wire required for listening;
3) storage space for up to 24 mp3s;
4) battery life of 3-4 hrs;
5) 6mm micro dynamic drivers;
6) controls operated by bite force.
