The Otofonix personal sound amplifier was released in the summer of 2016 by Otofonix and has made a splash in the personal sound amplification market. This device was created by Otofonix, a North Carolina company founded by a retired Board-Certified Otolaryngologist (ENT Physician). The Otofonix Personal Sound Amplifier was designed to help people who struggle to understand soft speech, understanding in noisy environments and hearing conversations over distances. It is not meant for people with a severe or profound hearing loss or those under 18 years of age.
What makes this sound amplifier stand out from the rest?
The Otofonix Personal Sound Amplifier was designed by a retired ENT physician with a desire to create a device that could help people to hear better without the need for costly doctor appointments or expensive hearing aid devices. Furthermore, personal sound amplifiers on the market were often ineffective in environments with a lot of background noise because the devices would amplify all sounds, even ones the user didn’t want to hear. Otofonix added background noise reduction and feedback cancellation technology, both of which are commonly found in high end hearing aids. The combination of soft sound amplification and background noise reduction makes these devices very helpful in noisy listening environments.
