Trouble Hearing In A Noisy Room? There’s An App For That



Yesterday Scott Nathan and Mark Eisner demonstrated RealClarity at DEMO Fall 2013.

Produced by IDG, the DEMO conferences in the United States, China, Brazil and Singapore focus on emerging technologies and new product innovations. The DEMO conferences have earned their reputation for consistently identifying tomorrow’s cutting-edge technologies.

Here’s the video of the demo.



We’re just a few weeks away from the launch of RealClarity! If you’re interested in being notified as soon as it becomes available, please register at our new website here: www.RealClarityApp.com.



We’re excited to be chosen as one of 10 finalists in the AARP Health Innovation50+ LivePitch competition.  If you’re planning to attend the AARP conference in Las Vegas this week, please visit our booth in the Health Innovation pavilion – and definitely attend (and vote for us) at our LivePitch presentation on Friday afternoon!

Mark Describes SoundFest



Hearing Mojo, the leading blog for hard-of-hearing people, just wrote an excellent story about SoundFest and our planned smartphone app.  Check it out here.



Check out Radio Entrepreneurs interview with SoundFest president David Duehren here.



SoundFest was mentioned today in the Wall Street Journal. Testing, Testing … Can You Hear Better Now? provides an excellent summary of the state of the market for personal hearing assistance. Dave Duehren, our CEO, summarizes SoundFest’s design philosophy: “… people know what they can and can’t hear, and they can adjust [Real Clarity] themselves.”

 

 



We frequently get questions about how RealClarity will sound in practice. RealClarity Train Example is a short audio clip that illustrates how someone with hearing difficulty will gain clarity in their conversations in noisy environments like riding a train.
