What Happened To Ionic Ear After Shark Tank? – SlashGear
The idea behind the Ionic Ear was not without merit. Wearing Bluetooth headphones can sometimes be a real pain, and moving with them has a high chance of the cans getting jostled around, disturbing your listening experience. Inventor Darrin Johnson wanted to solve this issue permanently and came up with the idea of a Bluetooth device that was to be surgically attached to the human ear. The Ionic Ear was meant to stay on your ear securely and included a microphone and a receiver, just like most Bluetooth headphones.
The first catch came with how the device was to be implanted in a human ear. It required surgery to install, and the device would be affixed inside the ear canal. Since the device is obviously wireless, it would also require regular charging. This means you must connect the device inside your ear canal to a wall outlet and stay put for a few hours.
Johnson came in wanting a $1 million investment in exchange for 15% of the company. The surgical requirement and the outright unbelievability of the product left the investor panel unimpressed. Robert Herjavec, the only Shark willing to hear the pitch, hilariously stated, “Darrin, here’s insanity, here’s genius… you’re somewhere.”
