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.

On 11, Oct 2017 | In Hearing Technology | By Jerusha Shulberg

First came the fingerprint, then the retina scan. Now, it’s all about the ear! These distinct parts of our bodies are unique to every individual and because they are unique, they can be used for biometrics. But what exactly is biometrics?

 

Each ear is unique, each ear hears differently

Biometrics is the measurement of people’s physical and behavioral characteristics that are mainly used for identification and access control. It’s something we’re all becoming accustomed to as innovation and personalization moves forward. For example, many smartphones have an integrated finger scan; biometric passports are standard today- even photographs can be sorted according to facial recognition. And now, this technology has made its way to hearing.

Oticon Opn Hearing Aids Delivers an Open Sound Experience for Wearers

On 20, May 2016 | In Hearing Technology | By Jerusha Shulberg

With Oticon’s launch of Oticon Opn™, hearing aid treatment technology has taken a giant leap forward in favour of the end‐user.

Traditionally hearing aid technologies close down environmental sounds using tunnel directionality. Speech coming from the front is clear, while the rest of the sound environment is suppressed, limiting the brain of the context needed to make sense of sound.

With new, ground breaking technology from Oticon, the Oticon Opn™ quickly and precisely analyses the soundscape and differentiates between environmental and foreground sounds. Even in complex listening environments, Otion Opn™ can open up and balance individual sounds allowing environmental noise to be accessible but not disruptive, empowering the brain to choose which sound to focus on. Directionality as we know it, has become a thing of the past.
