Member 2008 Beijing Olympics, Team USA Indoor Volleyball team, helping the US to a silver medal.

Kim is a personal trainer, a model and works with sports tech companies.

One of the companies Kim represents is Halo Sport.

The Neuropriming headset that integrates seamlessly into your workout.

Halo Sport 2 headphones is tech that delivers an electrical current to the motor center of your brain.

The idea is to use this device for 20 minutes before an activity to create a state of ‘hyper-learning’ by neuropriming.

The headphones themselves feel well-built and have a firm hold on the head, making it easy to get the fit you want. This is important, as the companion app from Halo needs to confirm it’s making clear contact with your head before the process can begin.

“That process is unlike anything we’ve felt before. The second you start, and the app tells you that it’s ‘ramping up’, you’ll begin to feel a tingling in the skull where the electrodes… sorry, primers are.”

The audio quality in vocals is pretty good – and you can remove the primer spikes to make wearing the headphones more comfortable day to day.

The idea is an interesting one, unlocking something as simple as firing an electrical current into the brain to improve performance. It’s called transcranial direct current stimulation (TCDS), which is just as described above – the idea of stimulating the brain to achieve a heightened state of learning.

Great to have Kim on to explain more. Enjoy!
