Panasonic has announced the development of a new technology for fitting hearing aids. Focusing on electroencephalogram (EEG) brain wave patterns recorded when example sounds heard at the normal sound volume are played into the user’s ears during the test, the new technology enables the estimation of the loudest level of sound the user can comfortably tolerate.
