Users can incorporate as much ambient sound as desired without hearing their own voices
VANCOUVER, B.C., Nov. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Singular Hearing, a subsidiary of Singular Software and creator of HeardThat, announced today a significant update to its hearing-assistive app that delivers more natural sound without background noise in more environments than ever before. In the new release, HeardThat has integrated two of its most popular features, Directional mode and adjustable noise removal to work together harmoniously.
Prior to this update, Directional mode would remove the user's own voice, but the more that noise removal was turned down, the more that the user's own voice would come through. Now there is no tradeoff between the two. Users can now have as much ambient sound as they'd like without hearing their own voices. This creates a more natural hearing experience and aids in situational awareness.
Unlike hearing-assistive wearables, HeardThat leverages the power of smartphones to run sophisticated AI algorithms that truly separate speech from background noise. Connecting with devices people already own, like hearing aids, earbuds or headphones, the app doesn't require additional hardware in order for users to have effortless conversations in loud social settings.
"No other hearing-assistive technology suppresses users' voices to the extent HeardThat does," said Singular Hearing CEO and HeardThat Founder Bruce Sharpe. "This is a milestone in accessibility technology and improves users' social interactions significantly by creating a more natural hearing experience and eliminating background noise in loud places."
