Hearing Loss and the Artwork

Alex Kriese AMPED, Headphones, Hearing Tags: , , , 0 Comments

Many people do not have the ability to go visit a museum by themselves, so the Smithsonian is starting something cool. On January 5th 2017, NPR ran a story on the Smithsonian museum’s tours for the blind people in our community. On these tours, the headphones for every occassionartwork or sculptures are described in vast detail so that one can imagine what the art looks like in their mind. In addition to being described, sometimes the museum will allow people on these tours to actually touch the sculptures and get a feel for the artwork that way. The importance of these tours shows that a person’s hearing is key to their enjoyment of the world.

With some form of hearing loss, people might not experience the beauty of the museum at all. Hearing is truly important to people who cannot see so that they can experience the full beauty of the visual world. The ability to hear does not only help with the visual world, but it also helps the emotional stability of a person. Once people start to lose their hearing, they also lose part of their life. People who are hard of hearing stay inside more, and not experience things. When people lose their hearing, they also lose other enjoyable things in life.

Not only does the ability to hear help at museums, but it is also necessary for activities like going to a symphony or a musical. At a symphony, the audience has an opportunity to close their eyes and create an image and experience the beauty of what the music means to them. While during quiet sections of musicals, people with some hearing loss might miss key points. Powered by Lucid could help people who are experiencing some stage of hearing loss have the ability to hear these events. People who have some form of hearing loss no longer are able to hear their favorite music again. Lucid Audio could help people hear the music clearer and therefore create a clearer picture in their mind.

The Smithsonian Museum is not the only place that takes people with hearing difficulties into account. The Alamo Drafthouse and other movie theaters also have visual aids for people who might have some form of hearing loss. With the increase of people in Austin, Texas for South By Southwest, the Alamo Drafthouse’s visual aids were receiving plenty of use. With the use of Powered by Lucid, those starting to lose their hearing could still continue to experience the beauty of the many films and music that debuted over the week.

In addition to during musicals or films, there are quite sounds that compose the wonderful parts of life. With Lucid Audio’s HearBands and Hearing Headphones, these sounds do not have to be missed anymore. This technology can increase the ambient sounds around you, while not taking away from the conversation you are engaged in.

With Lucid Audio’s HearBands, people are given an opportunity to get an earful of a musical or orchestra like they might not have been able to in years.

A person’s hearing effects more than just their knowledge of sounds, it effects their enjoyment of public events. Lucid Audio’s HearBands and Hearing Headphones can help with amplifying the sounds around the wearer, so they can experience things in their intended forms.

Hearing Loss And Hispanics

Janice Clark Hearing, PSAP Tags: , 0 Comments

According to a recent study, over 15% of the Hispanic population in the United States suffers some degree of hearing loss.

Hearing Loss in Hispanic Communities

Researchers examined 16,415 men and women of Hispanic/Latino descent. Participants ranged from 18 to 74 years of age and represented a diverse sampling of educational and socioeconomic backgrounds. Their findings are important clues to uncovering the causes of Hispanic hearing loss.sound amplification

  • 15.6% of participants showed signs of hearing loss in at least one ear
  • 8.24% had bilateral hearing impairment (loss of ability in both ears)

Some groups were shown to have higher risks of hearing loss.

  • Adults over 45 years old
  • Less education and/or lower income
  • Those with diabetes or prediabetes

Results also show participants of Puerto Rican descent were more likely to experience impairment when compared to their Mexican counterparts.

Your Family, Your World

Researchers noted a positive correlation between hearing impairment and lower quality of life. They also noted that most hearing loss is undiagnosed and untreated. This is especially true in communities that traditionally lack access to modern healthcare.

Many of us have family members who suffer from hearing loss. Some of them refuse to get medical attention because they think it’s just part of getting older.

Looking for a way to help? You might have thought about getting an old hearing aid for a loved one to try out. The thing to remember is that hearing aids are like prescription glasses. Only a medical professional can adjust them properly, as they are customized to the user’s specific needs.

Vacation Technology: A Tech Packing Guide for Every Trip

Savannah AMPED, Gifts, Headphones, Music, Students Tags: , , , 0 Comments

Vacations are a time to recharge and rejuvenate, but the packing part is never any fun. Whether you’re headed to a ski trip in the mountains, a beach trip by the shore, or a hiking trip in the canyons, we have you covered with this packing guide for vacation technology!

Here are 5 pieces of vacation technology to remember to pack: 

1. Your phone charger 

This is an easy one to forget, since our daily routines usually involve grabbing our phones off the charger, but leaving the charger behind.  For your trip, check and double check that you have your charger with you (cord and charger)!  One tip for remembering to bring your charger is to set the lock screen on your phone to a picture of a note saying “remember your charger!”  This is especially helpful if you’re staying at different places during your trip, since every additional stop is an additional opportunity to forget your phone charger!  You don’t want to be left with a dead phone during your travels, so be proactive about remembering to pack it!

2. A portable battery charger 

In terms of vacation technology, having adequate battery power is high on the priority list.  Even if you remember to pack your phone charger, it’s a good idea to have a back-up portable battery charger.  This is especially helpful if you anticipate spending long days on the go without easy access to outlets.  Having a charged phone is important for the sake of your Snapchat Story, yes, but it’s also an important emergency precaution.  You don’t want to be stranded somewhere without the ability to call a taxi, access a map, or alert the police!  Check out this article for a list of some high-rated portable battery chargers!

3. Useful Apps

Load up your phone with apps that might be helpful while you’re traveling!  Of course, there are the basic apps you should have, like Google Maps, and WhatsApp (if you’re traveling abroad), but there are lots of other apps out there that you might find helpful!  Check this article from the Guardian, titled: 10 of the best travel apps…that you’ll actually use.  Apps are an essential piece of vacation technology because they provide important information right at your fingertips!

4. Music and E-books 

Whether you’re traveling by plane, train, or car, you’ll want to have some entertainment with you.  Make sure your phone is loaded up with your favorite tunes prior to your trip so you’ll have music to listen to during your down time. E-books are also a great option. You can choose to bring your Kindle or iPad if you have these pieces of technology, or you can load ebooks onto your phone if you’re looking to pack lighter!

5. A Hearband by Lucid Audio 

Vacation technology needs to be versatile so you can use it for a wide vacation technologyrange of activities.  Lucid Audio’s Hearbands use Lucid Audio’s AMPED technology to give you a customizable hearing experience.  With the Hearband, you can amplify the sounds around you, like conversations, concerts, or the sound of the waves.  You can use it to stay safe by listening to music while staying aware of the background noises around you.  The Hearband delivers crisp, clear music and sounds to your ears AND it’ll take up almost no space in your luggage! Its sleek design and its innovative features make it the perfect piece of travel technology for all of your adventures!

A FREE Gift for World Hearing Day

Janice Clark Hearing Tags: 0 Comments

Lucid Audio loves your hearing! We love it so much, we want to help you protect it.

Word Hearing Day

The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared March 3, 2017 to be World Hearing Day. This annual celebration seeks to highlight the importance of auditory health.

This year’s theme is “Action for hearing loss: make a sound investment”. Hearing loss can have a huge impact on economies. The WHO estimates the world loses $750 billion annually due to hearing loss related causes. That is roughly equal to the gross national product of the Netherlands.

With this declaration, the WHO is encouraging governments and communities around the world to invest in protecting their peoples’ precious sense of hearing. They have suggested several strategies.

  • Make ear care a national habit by including it in the established healthcare system
  • Prioritize early identification and intervention
  • Increase public awareness of the importance and impact of hearing loss
  • Encourage governments to allocate funds and human capital for hearing loss efforts

They have also identified some cost effective ways to actively combat hearing loss.

  • Use protective gear when exposed to loud noises
  • Promptly identify and treat otitis media (middle ear infections)
  • Focus early screening efforts on newborns, school-aged children, and adults over 50
  • Provide continuous support for people in need of hearing amplification
  • Increase access for the hearing impaired with closed captioning and sign language interpretation

Researchers have suggested that preventing hearing loss caused by exposure to excessive noise would save the world economy up to $152 billion per year.

The Soft Sounds: Replacing Chaos with Calm

Savannah Uncategorized 0 Comments

Think through your day today. What sounds have you heard? 

For me, the first sound I heard this morning was my alarm (which I only heard after inadvertently pressing snooze 4 times…oops). I remember hearing my car’s audio system blasting my “WAKE UP” playlist–the only thing that really helps me feel awake before 9am. At work, I mostly heard typing, coupled with the occasional animated conversation. At home, I heard the kitchen cabinets bang together as I got ready for dinner. Oh, and how could I forget that screeching sound my shower makes whenever I turn it on…

As you can probably tell, most of the sounds I remember hearing during the day weren’t very calming at all. That’s because softer, more soothing sounds struggle to compete for our attention while louder noises are able to grab our attention during the chaos of the day.

However, it’s the soft sounds that usually bring me peace and contentment.soft sounds

Luckily, Lucid Audio’s AMPED technology gets it. Lucid Audio helps me bring the soft sounds to the center of my attention. Lucid Audio’s revolutionary AMPED technology allows for up to 9X amplified ambient sounds, bringing more calmness to your day.

If I’d had my AMPED headphones on for even part of today, I might have paid more attention to the songs of the birds whose morning routines are clearly more graceful than mine. I might have noticed the sound of the rain pattering against my window at work. I might have heard the wind singing melodies foreign to my ears. In fact, I now realize that I didn’t even hear or notice the sound of my breath all day today.

In our world, the sounds that bring us a sense of peace can sometimes be elusive, but Lucid Audio gives us the tools to bring them closer to us.

Lucid Audio’s AMPED technology helps me feel more connected to the little things in life, and brings softness and calm to my days.

Amplify your Creativity: 3 Creative Ways People are Using AMPED Hearing Technology

Savannah Uncategorized 0 Comments

One great thing about the power of amplification is that you have more options about what you hear. More options allow for more creativity, and it’s always exciting to hear about the innovative ways people are using AMPED hearing technology.

Lucid Audio’s AMPED technology allows you to hear sounds that would otherwise be inaccessible to you. By amplifying even the softest of sounds, you’re able to amplify your creativity! Below are three creative things our AMPED hearing technology has been used for: 

1. For dancing

Lucid Audio’s unique hearing technology has incredible functionality for dancers. Amplification allows dancers to hear their music at full volume, while still noticing the sounds their feet make on the ground and the rhythm of their breath.

In addition, dancers who must share studio space can listen to the track of their choice through their headphones, and are still able to hear other important sounds (like instructions from their dance instructor or the sound of other dancers they might be about to bump into!)

2. For meditating  

Who would’ve thought headphones and meditating would go together? Maybe not with most headphones, but with Lucid Audio’s AMPED hearing technology, the meditating experience is hearing technologyenhanced by the ability of wearers to listen to tracks featuring calming music, while also amplifying their breath and the ambient noises around them.

The flexibility of AMPED hearing technology allows wearers to adjust the level of amplification they would like to hear. You can use Lucid Audio headphones to block out the sound of crowded traffic, or you can use it to turn up the noise of the soothing wind chimes near you.

3. For birdwatching

This one might just take the cake for most creative use of amplification technology. Avid birdwatchers can enjoy using AMPED hearing technology to enhance their birdwatching hearing technologyexperience. By amplifying ambient noises, the soft sounds of birds chirping are also enhanced. This allows birdwatchers to more easily identify bird species by listening to their distinct tweets, chirps, and songs. This makes me want to get out there and go on a birdwatching adventure!

Have other creative uses for AMPED hearing technology? Share them with us in the comments section! And go out there and amplify your creativity every day 🙂
