BrainHearingTM represent the most advanced hearing aid.

If your brain is not getting the right sounds to work with, it takes intense effort to create meaning of every word you hear. With BrainHearing™ the brain gets access to the full soundscape, allowing it to focus on the most relevant sound sources. BrainHearing is not about technology or product features. It is about the fundamental understanding of how hearing works – and how your brain makes sense of sound. . Hearing, and especially speech understanding, is a cognitive process, not a mechanical one. The ears receive sounds and it is in the brain that they are processed to give meaning to you. And whenever there are missing sounds, the brain tries to fill the gap – an often difficult and exhausting process. Good hearing isn’t simply a question of making sounds loud enough. It’s about helping your brain understand the sounds you hear. That’s why we’ve moved from an “ear first” to a “brain first” approach to hearing.

The mechanism of listening is quite complex and consists of a cognitive process, which means understanding the sounds and words heard. Hearing pathways to the brain include several nuclei of the brainstem. The pulses generated in the cochlea pass through the spiral ganglion (sensory ganglion nerve) to the cochlear nuclei of the medulla oblongata. From here, impulses are sent to the superior olivar nucleus and then, through the lateral temporal tract, end up in the inferior colliculus, which is also the auditory reflective centers of the middle brain. From the inferior colliculus through the ‘station’ of the medial thalamic genicular bodies, impulses end up in the auditory cortex located in the temporal lobes. As some nerve fibers intersect, the brain receives auditory signals from both ears.

Analitic elboration of the information

If we are in the music area, instrumental sound, voices and the whispers of clothing or oppening and clossing of the doors creating a mixture of sounds. However, the listening crust can separate the constituent parts of this sound mix. So analytical information processing is a very complicated process in this area.

Interpretation of sounds

During processing of the sound timber, the eyelid cells of different parts of the organ of the Cortex are activated by sound waves having different frequencies. When sound is made up of tones of different frequencies, different populations of eyelash cells are stimulated at the same time, leading to perception of multiple tones.

Volume perception

Concerning our perception of intensity, it is suggested that for tones having the same frequencies, some cochlear cells have a higher threshold than other cells. For example. Some receptors responding to a 540 Hz tone may be stimulated by a very low-intensity sound wave. As the sound intensity increases, the basal membrane vibrates more strongly. Consequently, the pulse reaches more pulses that are interpreted as a higher intensity sound but with the same tonality.

Sound localization

As long as both ears are functional, the brainstem cores process those signals that help us to locate the sound source is forward, backward, or above the center line of the head, the intensity and arrival time of the sound wave will be equal. for both ears. When sound comes from one side, the nearest ear receptors are activated somewhat faster and more strongly than the other ear receptors. This is because of the greater intensity of sound waves passing through the ear that is closest to the source.

Meanwhile, the speed and power of the Velox platform platform takes BrainHearing technologies to a whole new level. Basically BrainHearing technology includes: OpenSound Navigator ™, Spatial Sound ™ LX, Speech Guard ™ LX, TwinLink, etc.

With Spatial Sound LX, sound waves are transmitted from one another to another, enabling hearing aid users to accurately differentiate information to locate the sound source
Speech Guard LX dramatically improves the ability to understand conversations in noisy and dynamic environments
Speech Rescue LX captures high frequencies and records them in the mid-range area. This technology greatly helps people who have profound hearing loss at high frequencies
This technology guarantees a coordinated perception of sound waves from hearing aids in both ears
