Earphones that Give Users a Buzz!?

Nervana earphones promise to stimulate users’ brains to release “feel-good” chemicals while they listen to their favorite music. But can they really deliver a buzz along with the beat?

Results are mixed when office volunteers try the Nervana out – some love it, others feel nothing.

Plastic Surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon says the concept “is based on science and physiology” – the earphone is stimulating the vagus nerve behind the ear, which is connected to the pleasure centers of the brain.

Dr. Ordon tries the earphones and says they feel great – ER Physician Dr. Travis Stork and Urologist Dr. Jennifer Berman agree that this product gets a thumbs-up. And even without the nerve stimulator, listening to music is a natural mood-booster!
