They rely on one sound direction for noise reduction, but both conversation and noise come from many directions.
Not all “machine learning” is the same
Machine Learning for hearing aids today works by enhancing speech and ignoring non-speech, but this doesn’t work in common situations like a noisy cafe, where you have ambient speech.
Technology for the real world
AudioFocus reimagined the hearing aid — so you can follow conversations wherever you go. Our technology uses a proprietary machine learning algorithm that only amplifies voices nearby by analyzing echo statistics, just like our brains do.
Use ML to auto-detect which voices are important in the presence of many.
Design a microphone array that maximizes the sound clarity and noise reduction benefits.
Utilize lower power AI Processors that allow for a discreet and ergonomic design.
