Hearing aids are not simple sound amplifiers. They are complex microcomputers that adapt to the listening environment that you are in. When we design hearing aids, we make sure that they will work in all listening environments – whether that is a crowded city street, a windy sailboat, or a great concert.
A lot of our hearing aid testing uses real people in real places, but we get great insight from investigations done under ideal conditions like that found in the anechoic chamber. Here, we can test sound direction and performance in a controlled environment.
