Online hearing simulation

Welcome to the online hearing simulation.

This simulation allows people with normal hearing to experience how sounds are heard by the hearing impaired and how this can be improved through hearing systems. Simply click on the corresponding symbol to start the sample sounds. For best results, start with the file "Original" first and adjust the volume so you can clearly hear the sample sounds. If you listen to the following samples (without hearing aid, etc.) without changing the volume, you will experience the difficulties caused by hearing impairments as well as the improvements made possible by standard hearing aids and particularly our hi-fi technology.

The sound samples are launched simply by clicking on the relevant symbol. Ideally, you should launch the file "Original" first and set the volume so that you can understand the sound samples well. Do not change the volume again for the sound samples that follow (Without hearing system, etc.). This will allow you to experience the difficulties that hearing impairment entails and what improvements are now possible with standard hearing systems, particularly our hi-fi technology. A non-binding hearing test with a hearing system specialist can provide you – or your relatives – with free and fast information about your personal hearing.
