Loewe Teams Up With Hearing Company For Better TV Dialogue
Have you had a problem hearing dialogue on your TV recently? This is most probably due to poor audio output being built into devices today. Now German TV maker has moved to do something about it by teaming up with a hearing Company.
The Company that already has built-in soundbars, but still wants to do something about the issue on both its existing and future TVs has cut a deal with sound personalisation specialists Mimi Hearing Technologies to improve TV sound.
Mimi’s technology, ‘Defined’ sound software, works to specifically tailor a TVs audio performance to individual tastes and needs – including age.
This is done via algorithms which form a profile for the user based on data from over a million anonymous Mimi Hearing Test results and analyse audio content in real time and adjust it to individual hearing sensitivity in accordance with age.
Previously just available on headphones, this is the first time ever this has come to TV speakers.
Mimi claims that for the optimal listening experience when watching TV, the volume of individual frequencies in the sound must be adapted to an individual’s listening capabilities, but if it’s not your bag, TV owners can simply set their own settings or turn it off completely if they prefer.
The technology is available on Loewe TVs including the Bild 3 and above via its latest software upgrade.
