Our global mission is to discover how immersive auditory training can best address the effects of age-related hearing loss on our social interactions and cognitive decline.

Life is better with sound

Age related hearing loss affects 466m people around the world. Decline in our ability to hear affects nearly of all of us at some point in our lives. Most people are simply not aware of the importance of maintaining their hearing through timely assessments and proactive protection, risking more rapid decline. Not being able to hear properly is correlated with social isolation and cognitive decline; imagine life without sound.

One of the first signs of age related hearing loss is finding it harder to hear what people say in busy places like cafes and bars.
