Hear better with BrainHearingTM technology at Hello Hearing

We believe hearing starts not only with the ears, but also with the brain, and much of our focus is to also support the way the brain makes sense of sound. The less sound information your brain receives, the harder it has to work to make sense of it.  That is why hearing loss can be tiring.

In order to truly hear and understand your world, we believe your brain must work with your ears to do 4 things:Brainhearing head.png

  • Constantly use both ears to locate and orient to what is happening in the environment
  • Separate relevant sound from competing noise
  • Know where to focus, especially in noisy environments
  • Recognise unique or familiar sounds in order to make sense of them

When your brain and ears are not able to do this easily, you have to expend much more effort trying to makes sense of what is happening around you. 

With hearing loss, staying engaged in conversation requires higher concentration, increasing the work or ‘cognitive load’ on the brain.  This puts demands on energy already needed to enjoy an active and social lifestyle.

They help the brain make sense of the sound it receives from both ears. 

It's called BrainHearingTM.

BrainHearingTM Technology works in harmony with your brain, automatically adjusting and optimising sound so you can hear clearly, more naturally and with less effort, allowing you to use your energy to live your life at its fullest.

Signature BrainHeairngTM features include:

Spatial Sound: helps your brain to work out where the sound is coming from

Speech Guard: protects speech clarity and details to let your brain comprehend easier

Free Focus: helps your brain to zoom in on what you want to hear

YouMatic: allows to tailor the hearing aids to your personal listening preferences
