Hearing loss affects up to 466 million people globally, but when the problem escalates so severely that there’s constant miscommunication with loved ones aids will need to be worn. Unlike most hearing aids that enhance all-around acoustics, Beethoven’s AI algorithm puts emphasis on recognizing human voices. Additional training can be targeted to recognize and highlight specific individual’s voice frequency, making conversations with the most important people easy. The earpiece has been redesigned to be more form-fitting and natural.
