About uSound
uSound is available for Android and iOS devices.
The smartphone captures the sound with its microphones. The sound is then analyzed, the necessary frequencies marked by the hearing test are compensated. Finally, the optimized audio is played by the earphones allowing you to hear what is happening around you.
uSound performs an estimate hearing test, the results are used to tailor the sounds to your hearing.
No, uSound hearing test does not replace an audiologist’s hearing exam (audiometry). While uSound’s test has a high level of accuracy, and it is the result of many years of investigation and testing, we are not ready to replace an audiometry. This is why you can enter your audiometry to enhance the precision of uSound’s audio compensation even further.
No, uSound, at present, is an alternative device to enhance your hearing. uSound has obtained a medical device certification in Argentina by the Medicine University of Tucumán (Argentina), by the I.N.T.E.G.R.A.R foundation for research on hearing impairment, and by the Stok Hearing impairment Clinic in Tucumán (Argentina), our next step is to certify uSound with the FDA, at that moment we will be able to call uSound a medical device.

The quality of the audio is directly related to the quality of the earphone. You may use the earphones you wish, however if you would like to achieve the best possible experience, you should buy from a recognized earphone brand.
About the earphone type:
  • Wired: This type of earphone is recommended since the transmission delay is the minimum. This is recommended when listening to people close to you, like when being part of a conversation.
  • Bluetooth (Android version only): This type of earphones, although they introduce a small amount of delay, are highly recommended in situations where you are far away from the speaker, like when taking a lesson at university since it allows you to leave the smartphone in the teacher’s desk and sitting anywhere in the classroom.

Here is a list of some earphone models compatible with our Android (only) version:

In Android: the delay is normal, measured in the High End earphones at 100ms, Middle End earphones 180ms, Low End earphones 220 ms. The reason for this delay is caused by the Android operating system, this issue will be fixed in the coming versions of Android, from our side we take care of optimizing our sound engine 100% to achieve the smallest delay possible. We are also working in an alternative solution that will allow for imperceptible delay in Android.
In iOS: There is not perceptible delay, this is achieved since the audio processing takes under 15ms, at this speed the brain cannot tell the difference.
No, uSound does not significantly affect the battery life of your smartphone, its algorithms are carefully optimized.
It is necessary as it is the way to give you a personalized attention.
