Hearing loss is a growing concern amongst the medical community as incidence of this kind of degeneration continues to rise. Today, one in five individuals suffer from some degree of hearing loss, with over 48 million in the US alone reporting hearing loss in one ear. The World Health Organisation (WHO), have stated that they believe that one billion teenagers and young adults could be at risk of premature hearing loss caused by the use of audio devices, smartphones, earbuds and headphones to listen to music and video content.
Many pediatricians have urged patients to cease the use of such devices as exposure to loud noises is believed to be the driving cause of over 90% of progressive hearing loss cases. Which is why the introduction of the new app, TSC Music is so exciting as it aims to eliminate this problem by keeping track of the user’s daily hearing condition to manipulate audio-content accordingly.
The revolutionary tech works by conducting a quick and simple hearing test when the user opens the app, which is based off five key frequencies. Once the test is completed, the app can then collate your personalized hearing data to optimize the sound for the user’s present hearing condition. This leaves the user with a clearer, better quality of sound and as the app saves the data after each use, it can easily monitor and map out the daily hearing condition of user and display the information in interactive, graphical charts (not dissimilar to a Fitbit).
The creators of TSC Music, Earlogic are a startup that specialize in audio technologies and they’ve made TSC Music freely available to download from the App Store. The app requires iOS 9.0 or later to run, it’s compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and is available in multiple languages including English, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish and Vietnamese.
So if you’re worried about your hearing or if you just want to keep track, then head on over to the App Store today to download TSC Music for free and become part of the listening revolution.
