All day, every day, people are bombarded by sound. Some sounds are desirable, but many are not. We've created two augmented listening devices that provide a new level of choice and personalization to transform everyday auditory experiences, as if they resemble superpowers for your ears.
The Stages array, the center of our Audio Processing System, makes this possible. Using 8 MEMS microphones, the array captures all incoming sound which is then processed by our proprietary speech and sound algorithms. The Stages array in both the Hero and Sidekick was designed to enhance your listening experience through selective sound admittance gating (when you hear ambient sound) and ambient+ audio spatialization (the direction you hear ambient sound from).
Meant for mobile lifestyles, the Hero offers superior noise cancellation with wired or wireless capability. Audiophile-level sound quality with onboard low EMI Class D stereo amplifiers and integrated dual ultra-low power audio codecs.
Gives users the ability to specify precise admittance criteria, which will allow sound based on keywords, speaker recognition or speech recognition.
