Life-like Sound Field For Hearing Aids

Developing a technology to reproduce life-like sound to bring convenience to persons with hearing impairment


Currently, hearing aids cannot reproduce a life-like three-dimensional sound and the sound is even like being congested in the ears of the users. This hinders persons with hearing impairment from locating and responding to the sound.

The venture will develop a technology which enables hearing-impaired persons to distinguish the direction and distance of the source of sound. Their ability to react to sound could be enhanced and the daily experience and convenience could be improved. The technology can be applied to existing hearing aids with the addition of tiny microphones and digital signal processing modules.
