Cubex are really excited to be involved in a new and innovative direction of hearing care. HyperSound Clearis a one-of-a-kind personal direct audio solution that generates an ultrasound beam through the air providing a completely immersive, clear and crisp 3-D sound effect, similar to wearing headphones.
With one step a listener can enter or exit a zone of fully intelligible sound, experiencing a difference in aural perception as abrupt as if they’d flipped on a power switch. HyperSound® speakers project a sound beam to a precisely targeted location, creating a private listening zone in any room.
The audio technology, originally meant for enhancing the virtual reality experience for gamers has now developed into a technology that can benefit people with hearing loss too. We have tried this immersive experience for ourselves and would love to hear what you think of it after experiencing it in our offices. Find out more below.

Do you know how your ears and brain work together? The pair are a one-two knock out enabling you to hear!
In honor of Brain Awareness Week, Healthy Hearing wants to call attention to the way your brain and ears work together. Just for fun, let’s celebrate by comparing this great partnership to some other famous duos.
In my work, I keep track of technology developments across a variety of fields to try to better anticipate what the future might be like (especially for media and news). Since getting hearing aids about a year and a half ago, and becoming a contributor to this blog, I’ve (of course) included advancements in hearing technology as well as hearing medicine and research to my scanning routine.
Lately, there’s been a lot of activity in the “hearing” space, both positive and worrying. (Since I am, for the most part, a technology optimist, I believe — and hope — that a positive hearing future is more likely.)
Frank Lin’s ongoing research at John Hopkins University has shed light on how hearing loss, cognitive functioning, and ageing relate to each other.
Lin shared his public health perspective on hearing loss and ageing at our recent series on Vision 2020: Creating a Future for Hearing Health Care.
In his presentation, Lin explains how hearing loss can contribute to increased cognitive load on the brain, changed brain structure, and social isolation in older adults. Combined, these three health pathways can lead to decreased cognitive and physical functioning in older adults.
For hearing aid and cochlear implant users, one of the most important people in our lives is our hearing care professional (HCP).
This person has more influence on my peace of mind, bank account and quality of life than I would normally give to anyone not a husband, child, parent or BFF. I see my HCP more frequently than I see my family doctor, probably because hearing loss poses more barriers than other health challenges. It makes me more dependent on technology, which is prone to becoming blocked, broken, flooded and generally more stuffed up than any other body part, internal or external.
Cubex audiologist Adam Shulberg on treating hearing loss in the 21st Century
“The biggest misconception people have about hearing impairment is that the hearing aid is the solution,” says Adam Shulberg, managing director of Cubex. “The important thing to understand with hearing loss is that it is a communication disorder. And as such it doesn’t just affect the person, but their friends, family and everybody surrounding them. So we believe it is vital to involve those people at the outset.”
This approach sums up the way that Cubex has been approaching the task of helping people with hearing issues since it was set up by Adam’s father Monty over 40 years ago. While the word ‘audiologist’ will not be familiar to many people, the services they offer most definitely will be.
Being exposed to roaring engines on the track gave one champion and former teammate of Barry Sheene permanent hearing damage
FORMER motorbike racer Steve Parrish used to pride himself on his ability to tune engines but he had no idea that constant exposure to his bike’s roar would give him long-term hearing problems.
