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.
Rather than closing down the sound so that the listener only focus on one talker at a time it opens up the soundscape so that the listener can engage with their whole environment 360 degrees all the time

Watch this week’s TIP to learn more about a new kind of hearing technology that gives listeners’ natural 360° sound constantly.
Living with hearing loss is tiring and it affects our memory and ability to recall information. We need to use so much cognitive resource in order to hear that it leaves us with fewer resources for other functions and so, getting through the day can be very stressful, frustrating and isolating.
Our cognitive capacity is finite and at Cubex we have a real appreciation and understanding of how best to use our limited cognitive capacity as effectively as possible.
Strategies, tools, techniques and hearing technology used in our treatment and management plans aim to help you make the best use of your cognitive capacity so that you can do more and remember more information more with greater ease and less stress.
