Research Shows Benefit of Access to All Sounds in Environment

Studies conducted by Eriksholm Research Centre found that natural brain function first processes the entire sound scene before focusing or selectively attending to the sound of interest. Researchers point out that the findings have significant implications for hearing aid design, challenging traditional approaches that let conventional technology decide what the brain needs to attend to.

Earlens Contact Hearing Solution Introduced with Inductive Coupling vs Light-Driven Coupling

In January 2019, the FDA approved a new and improved inductive radio power system for the Earlens Contact Hearing Solution which replaced the previous light-driven system. This article details the advantages of this change, and provides study results on the benefits of the inductive coupling system and how it is equal to or surpasses the light-driven system in several parameters.

Reducing Hearing Aid Delay for Optimal Sound Quality: A New Paradigm in Processing

Sound quality in digital hearing aids is often compromised due to signal-processing delay and the resulting “comb-filter effect.” To change this, Widex recently introduced a new solution, designed particularly for mild-to-moderate hearing losses, which employs an ultralow delay. This results in a sound quality that has, until now, been unattainable in digital hearing aids. This article describes the physics of hearing aid delay, and presents a field study on the sound quality experience of the new system.
