Apple AirPods will help people with hearing loss if there are no much more expensive hearing aids at hand. New study published

A team of scientists from Taipei Veterans General Hospital compared Apple AirPods with hearing aids and found that Apple’s solution shows excellent results.

Apple headphones since 2016 have had a feature called Live Listen, which allows mobile devices to act as microphones that stream enhanced audio to AirPods or Beats headphones.

In their experiments, the researchers compared basic $1,500 hearing aids, $10,000 premium hearing aids, AirPods 2, and AirPods Pro with noise cancellation. The four devices were tested with 21 people with mild to moderate hearing loss, with the researchers reading short sentences and asking participants to repeat them verbatim.

The AirPods Pro performed comparable to regular hearing aids in quiet environments and were slightly inferior to premium hearing aids. The AirPods 2 didn’t work as well, but they still helped me hear more clearly than without hearing aids. In noisy environments, AirPods Pro performed comparable to premium hearing aids, but only when the noise was coming from the side. When the noise came from the front, they, along with the AirPods 2, were unable to improve the subjects’ hearing.

According to Newatlas, up to 15% of American adults are affected by some degree of hearing loss, but not everyone can afford good hearing aids.

The AirPods 2 are priced at $129 in the US, while the AirPods Pro are offered for $249.

However, these are far from ordinary wireless headphones. As the manufacturer notes, Dyson Zones are designed to solve the dual problem of city noise and air pollution. The headphones provide 4 hours of battery life while playing music and purifying the air at the same time.

Compressors in each earpiece suck air through two-layer filters and direct two streams of purified air to the wearer’s nose and mouth through a kind of “visor”.

Dyson promises that electrostatic filters trap 99% of particles as small as 0.1 microns, while K-Carbon charcoal filters trap gases that pollute urban air, including NO2 and SO2.

Dyson plans to begin accepting pre-orders for the Dyson Zone in the US from March 2023. The suggested retail price is $949.
