By increasing the contrast between voices and background noise, this latest upgrade makes it easier for Whisper wearers to focus on their conversation partner in more situations, according to the company’s announcement. Whisper is also increasing the amount of AI support users receive by “activating the Sound Separation Engine 67% more of the time (based on average usage).”

In the year since the Whisper Hearing System launched, consumers who chose the Whisper Hearing System have received upgrades that:

  • “Improved the algorithms in its Sound Separation Engine so that they could understand conversations more clearly (and more than 40% of their partners agreed as well).”
  • Provided support for hands-free phone calls with the following Android phones: Samsung Galaxy S9, Samsung Galaxy S10, Samsung Galaxy Note10, Google Pixel 3, Google Pixel 4.

“Whisper has proven this year that patients can expect more from their hearing aids,” said Andrew Song, Co-founder and CEO of Whisper. “With this new category of software-based learning hearing system, consumers can experience a  hearing aid that gives them new features or benefits every few months.”
