Alango Hearing Enhancement Package (HEP) is a licensable software reference design encompassing three categories of functionality:
- hearing enhancement,
- assistive listening,
- and advanced Bluetooth headset.
The class of device that this enables is known as a “hearable”. The possibilities for hearables – far beyond audio consumption and hands-free telephony - are just now beginning to be realized.
The human ear is a wonderful “device” allowing to obtain precise data on pulse, blood pressure, head motion and other body parameters. However, we believe that hearing itself is the most promising application of the hearable. The ability to hear is a gift that allows us to experience the richness of life. The ability to hear well in all situations and for all audio content is what we want to restore for those who have hearing problems. That’s the inspiration that fuels HEP.
