Hearing enhancement technology from Alango Technologies
Alango Technologies touted its hearing enhancement technology at the Wearable Technology Show 2017.
Its BeHear headphones offer a Bluetooth stereo headset that can be personalized. The headphones feature an advanced signal processing with built-in hearing enhancements and assistive listening technology. BeHear is expected to start shipping in May of this year.
Alango also offers the Smart Assistive Listening Transceiver, or SALT, as a personal sound amplifier that works using an advanced Bluetooth stereo headset and assistive listening device. It can be personalized through an app on a smartphone to provide personally-tuned sound to the user. SALT is expected to release around Alango Technologies’ third quarter in its 2017 fiscal year.
Alango Technologies uses EasyListen technology to slow down speech in real time on its BeHear headsets and SALT personal amplifiers. EasyListen makes speech more natural and understandable if encountering a fast talker.
The ListenThrough technology offered by Alango Technologies allows the user to listen to music in their headphones and still be able to hear important sounds while blocking out ambient noises.
