Key Note

Understanding Hearing: Beyond Technology

Modern hearing technology provides valuable support to people with hearing loss. Yet, why do so many hearing aids end up in drawers? And why are so many people with hearing loss still struggling in important communication situations? In this presentation, we will hear from people with hearing loss what matters to them and why good hearing is a matter of utmost importance – to them, their communication partners, and society at large. We will look beyond technology and discuss how a holistic, person-centered approach to hearing care can help people with hearing loss make the most of their technology and improve communication in daily life.

Objectively speaking – what is good sound quality?

Some (still) say that sound quality cannot be measured. Meet Sean Olive who had the courage to invest many years of his life researching some of the tough questions that many audio professionals would be reluctant to even talk about. With an unparalleled obsession in this field, Sean has proven many of us wrong of what we thought was good sound quality. He has contributed with new useful, objective tools that are at the reach of all headphone manufacturers today. This exciting talk will take us through Sean’s journey and research. He will share his learnings, what still needs to be done and which challenges we are facing.
