Talking About Hearing Loss … and a Solution to the Cocktail Party Problem?

November 07, 2019

You know that hearing problem you can have when you’re trying to pick up just one voice in a crowd…

This week on the podcast, we talk to a neural engineer. His research into how we hear and communicate may lead to a fix for the cocktail party problem by allowing people to highlight a specific voice in a crowd.

Also, we hear about a new tool from the Ida Institute called My Hearing Explained. We talk about how this new tool goes beyond the audiogram to show real-world effects of hearing loss.
