Cubex Weekly TIP – Open Sound Vs Directionality

On 07, Jun 2018 | In Hearing Technology, Weekly Tip | By Sam

THIS WEEK’S TIP:
OPEN SOUND vs DIRECTIONALITY

 

This week, Adam Shulberg is joined once more by Alison Stone, Audiologist & Training Manager at Oticon, a leading hearing technology company based in Denmark and part of the Eriksholm Research Centre.

Traditionally, hearing technology deals with complex and noisy environments like restaurants by focusing on one sound source at a time, such as one person speaking and reduces all other sounds – speech and environment sounds alike.

On this week’s TIP, Alison talks about a new kind of hearing technology that gives listeners’ natural 360° sound constantly, allowing them to hear and engage with multiple speakers and switch focus whenever they want to.

Why hearing aids are so much more impressive than the iPhone X

On 11, Oct 2017 | In Hearing Technology | By Rosie Williams

The release of the iPhone X has caused much of a stir in the technology world and we don’t just mean because of the price tag. Apple promise a new and improved facial recognition software, which uses biometrics to map the users face to 30,000 invisible dots using the TrueDepth camera.

Whilst Apple are not actually the first to release a facial recognition feature on a smart phone, they are the first to promise absolute reliability and security, ensuring that the tech cannot be easily tricked using a photograph or a mask.

This is all sounds very new and exciting and it certainly seems to have shaken up the smart phone market since they announced the new feature.

 

What are biometrics?

Biometry is the application of statistical analysis to biological data. Biometrics is the measurement of people’s physical and behavioral characteristics for use in some way,  currently mainly used for identification and verification.

Biometrics is a science we’re all becoming accustomed to in our day-to-day lives as technological innovation and personalization moves forward, such as fingerprint scanning on smart phones and biometric passports. And now, this technology has made its way to hearing aids.
