What if we had a really powerful computer to help us better understand speech in noise?
Hearing aids can provide amazing improvements for understanding speech in noise. Still there are limitations: increasing levels of what you want to hear can bring up sounds you don’t want to hear.
Even though digital devices have come a long way, we are still limited by the processing power that manufacturers can fit in a device small enough to fit comfortable in/over the ear.
What if we had a bigger and more powerful computer?
A California start-up called Whisper is adding an external wireless processor for a speech understanding boost!
Their devices will keep getting smarter with software updates to the algorithms and artificial intelligence to the processor.
Even better? It’s only $139/mo!
This looks promising and we’ll keep you posted once we test them.
