SoundFocus lets people with hearing loss listen to music in full fidelity with an iPhone or iPod Touch by tuning the audio to your hearing pattern.
SoundFocus was founded with the goal of building revolutionary audio processing technologies to empower millions of people with hearing loss to hear better in their everyday lives. This amazing app was created specifically to allow people with hearing loss to listen to music the way a normative person does. The app achieves it by tuning the music to each person’s unique hearing pattern and compensating for the sound frequencies they do not hear well. You can tune SoundFocus in less than a minute with a quick test that figures out which sound frequencies you do not hear well, then use the equalizer to enhance the audio even more.
The SoundFocus app allows people with hearing loss to listen to music the way it was meant to be heard – from the lowest bass to the highest notes. It gives people with hearing loss 20/20 hearing when listening to music on an iPhone or iPod Touch and for the first time in years, maybe even for the first time ever, they can get the chance to really understand what the artinst wanted to express. The app plays all the music that you own and love – from your iTunes library to Spotify and even support AirPlay so you can stream to your Apple TV and to AirPlay-enabled speakers. If you know someone with an hearing loss or suffer from hearing loss yourselves, get this app and begin hearing the music!
