A recently launched app for iOS known as ‘Mobile Ears,’ uses the microphone on the smartphone or tablet to amplify the sound and reducing ambience, when having a one-on-one or group conversations. The app claims to specifically help those who suffer from mild to moderate hearing impairment (25 to 60dB hearing level).
‘Mobile Ears’ is already available for free on App Store and currently available only on iOS and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. This app uses a speech amplification technology that allows users to hear everything clearly despite background noise or number of people in the room.
The app will allow you to adjust the hearing level according to the gender and age of the listener and with the thought of the cost for hearing aids, there is absolutely no doubt that the new free app on iOS is a great option for those who suffer from this condition.
