Olive Union announced its latest “smart hearable,” the Olive Pro. Described by the company as “2-in-1 hearing aids with truly wireless HiFi earbuds that look like conventional Bluetooth earbuds, but are armed with artificial intelligence to isolate unwanted noises and enhance music, conversations, TV, and more, all to your specific hearing profile.” Olive Pro is available now starting at a pre-order price of $149 ($299 MSRP), and will be shipping in Q1 2021.

“Everyone takes a different road to healthy hearing, but no matter the journey, today’s hearing aids industry has placed unnecessary business-driven roadblocks along the way,” said Owen Song, Founder and CEO of Olive Union. “When my uncle first needed hearing assistance, everything from design and pricing to technology and maintenance turned him away. Our third-generation Olive Pro was built for him and the 466 million people globally, suffering from some level of hearing loss.”
According to Olive Union, calibrating the Olive Pro to your personalized hearing profile takes 5 minutes and can be set up from the Olive Union iOS or Android apps with no appointment or audiologist needed. And, when changes to your hearing levels require new settings, recalibration is “as easy as the initial 5-minute setup,” the company notes.
Olive Pro helps customizes your hearing by “optimizing audio frequencies to your sound profile, while automatically cancelling background noises and feedback.” Equipped with HD speakers and two-way balanced armature drivers, it has the ability “to distinguish and amplify voices, and deliver personalized music EQ.”
Maximum gains, amplification and stereo sound in Olive Pro help produce “ultra-clear sound quality and heightened speech recognition,” the company says. And, with 18+ hours of battery life, users can rely on Olive Pro for “real-world hearing along with high-def hands-free music and calling, all-day.”
