How does personalization work?
The importance of the National Acoustic Laboratory - Non-Linear calibration.
At the core of the Ear ID personalization system is the NAL-NL2 self-fitting formula. NAL-NL2 is the world's leading non-linear, prescriptive fitting formulae. NAL-NL2 aims to make speech intelligible and loudness levels comfortable. This is important to note as hearing loss is not a linear process. For example, turning the volume up and up again, does not always equate to clarity. NAL-NL2 is used in hearing clinics by Audiologists and hearing care professionals around the world to fit and verify hearing aids.
National Acoustics Laboratories, the developers of NAL-NL2, and Nuheara have worked extensively to ensure the results generated from Ear ID are verified to industry standards. Nuheara, with NAL, has undergone research to demonstrate the accuracy of our Ear ID process. Ear ID tests air conduction thresholds within the same test-retest parameters as seeing an Audiologist or hearing care professionals in a clinic.
Nuheara is the first hearables company to embed NAL-NL2 in an end-to-end personalization system for consumers.
