MeQ Inc., the company behind Even earphones, the tunable earbuds that adjust to users’ unique hearing abilities, has raised $2 million as it looks to expand its business.

Financing came from individual investors like Ilan Shiloah, an Israeli businessman and former chief executive of the Israeli arm of the advertising firm McCann Erickson and the chairman of McCann Worldwide Group’s operations in Israel; and seed investors First Time Ventures and Metamorphic Ventures.

Other backers include: Gadi Amit, president and owner at NewDealDesign; Allen Morgan, a former partner at Mayfield Fund and MD at IdeaLab; Israeli athlete and national soccer team captain, Shimon Gershon; former Big Lots president and chief executive Michael Potter; and David Atchison a former senior vice president of Zulily.

Even’s technology works through a combination of software and hardware. To tune headphones, Even requires its customers to take a two-minute hearing test that determines their ability to hear certain frequencies at different volumes.
