Hi Maker Friends,
If you’ve had me in class, you may have noticed me wearing headphones during your lesson. I try to speak up to let the instructors know that I’m not listening to music, I’m listening to them!
The app essentially turns your phone (iPhone for now) into a modified hearing aid. It’s not perfect, but it’s really good at getting people loud enough to hear them by pulling sound through the phone’s microphones into earbuds or headphones.
If people around you seem to be talking nonsense because you’re confusing the sounds they are making, or if you have to turn the tv up too loud, or if you are just plain old frustrated when other people talk, try this. It was referred to me by an audiologist, and I bet she wished she never told me because I haven’t been back
I thought it was also for Android but it seems they are only offering it for iPhone for now. If you know of an Android equivalent, please post it. If I find one, I’ll update this post.
Here’s to better communication!
P.S. If you are losing your hearing and actually do need a hearing aid, I am happy to guide you for how to determine if you have the right audiologist, and what features to look for, and where you can go to get an excellent-quality set of hearing aids for a fraction of the cost. I’m not affiliated with any of them, I’ve just had years of experience with this and know how frustrating and isolating it can be not to be able to hear properly.
Feel free to message me privately if you don’t want to reply publicly.
