October 8, 2021 | Artificial Intelligence, News

Arc AI are the company’s full line of hearing aids that support the most advanced sound quality available.

Audibel, a leading providing of hearing healthcare, has launched Arc AI, a full new line of AI driven hearing aids that provide exceptional sound quality through an AI algorithm that automatically adjusts hearing aids to the wearer’s environment.

The algorithm makes up to 55 million personalized adjustments every hour without the wearer having to take any action, resulting in 40% noise reduction – a huge boon for the wearer due to the exceptional sound quality. (StreetInsider)

AI for adjustments on the fly

“Arc AI automatically adjusts to real-life scenarios that any wearer would find themselves experiencing,” said Keri L. Ruf, MA, Regional Managing Director at Audibel. “If the room is noisy, Arc AI will reduce background noise; if you go out for a walk, it will pick up the sound direction. In a place like Manhattan, where you’re going from a busy street filled with honking to a very quiet office building, automatic adjustments are a must.”

“Your hearing aid should adjust to you, not the other way around,” added Ruf. “Now with the Arc AI, that can be the case for millions who rely on these devices each day.”

Other technologies also included

The Arc AI line also has the advantage of other Audibel technologies:

  •   Fall detection technology: A designated caregiver receives an alert whenever an accident happens.
  •   TeleHear: Hearing aids can be adjusted or otherwise worked on remotely by Audibel technicians, limiting visits to a clinic.
  •   Thrive app: The companion app supports many additional features, including tinnitus masking tools and settings for listening to music.
  •   Bluetooth® connectivity: The Arc AI can connect to both iPhone and Android phones via Bluetooth, so the wearer can take phone calls, listen to audio, or watch videos with their hearing aids.
  •   Reminders: Whether to go to an appointment or take a medication, Arc AI supports reminder alerts directly into the hearing aid.

“Not only is the Arc AI effortless hearing, but it’s effortless selection, since it’s customizable in the look and the fit,” said Ruf, noting that the hearing aids also come in rechargeable and non-rechargeable varieties. “We have a hearing aid for literally every person in the world who needs one.”
