Noah Kraft is the CEO and Co-Founder at Doppler Labs a San Francisco-based technology company on a mission to make computing more immersive and human.
As a lifelong musician, Kraft has always had an eye - or an ear - on the audial world. Before heading to Brown in 2005, the Southern California native spent his early years immersed in L.A.’s music community. While he majored in International Relations and History, his love of music wove throughout his education, showing up in experiences like a study abroad focused on ethnomusicology and a summer internship at EMI Music Publishing.
During his senior year, Kraft took an internship with film producer Chad Verdi, who promptly hired the young entrepreneur on full-time after graduation. By the time he was twenty-one, Kraft was running a 100-person film crew as an executive producer. Under the executive production of Martin Scorsese, Kraft produced the 2016 biopic, Bleed for This, starring Miles Teller and Aaron Eckhart.
Kraft remained involved in the music world during his time as a film producer, both playing himself and managing others. While working at Verdi as the Chief Operating Officer, Kraft also served as Vice President of Music and Liver Entertainment at Tugg, Inc., a film-based collective action and crowdsourcing platform that enables individuals to create film screenings at their local cinema.
Kraft served as a consultant for 300 Entertainment and Google, before founding Doppler Labs, with prolific tech entrepreneur Fritz Lauman. In 2013, Kraft shared his concept for “hearables,” headphones infused with technology designed to help you hear the world better, with Lauman. Combining Lauman’s tech-industry experience with Kraft’s musical background and vision, the two set to building Doppler Labs in December 2013.
Doppler Labs was conceived with a mindset of creating technology that emphasizes the connection to the human experience. This ethos has led to a thoughtful, intentional go-to-market scheme, beginning with an extremely simple first offering: ear plugs. The $25 Dubs Acoustic Filters, designed to help you stylishly enjoy live music without blowing out your eardrums, served as a practice ground for thinking about the challenge of developing personal audio technology. A year later Doppler Labs launched the Hear Active Listening earbuds, with which they took a consumer-based crowd approach. After raising $635,000 offering the earbuds through a Kickstarter campaign, Doppler took their invention out in the field. Partnering with Coachella, they sold earbuds to festival attendees, showing over 4,000 people how to enjoy music better with the help of the earbud’s sound filters.
Here One, the company's flagship product and the first all-in-one wireless listening system that redefines how we engage with sound through technology. Here Active Listening, the predecessor to Here One, was released in January 2016 to an exclusive group of early adopters and was named one of TIME Magazine's Best Inventions of 2015.
