Over 10 years, Samsung Electronics and Samsung Medical Center have been collaborating with improving mobile devices’ optimization in sound experiences for users. This research has the potential to improve the lives of 1.5 billion people around the world who suffer from hearing loss.

Samsung Electronics today announced the results of a new study that was recently published in Clinical and Experimental Otorhinolaryngology, a prestigious scientific magazine dedicated to ENT research. 

The study included 18 people who had mild to moderate hearing loss. In calm circumstances, 57.6% of those surveyed said that wearing the Galaxy Buds Pro helped them hear better.

It’s said in the study that the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro passed the key performance criteria: output sound pressure level, frequency range, equivalent input noise, and total harmonic distortion. This indicates that they are comparable to hearing aids in terms of performance.

They then put it to the test to see how effective it was at amplification. Each device was put through its paces at seven different frequencies, and the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro came out on top.

Individuals were also shown to be able to hear spoken words better when wearing Galaxy Buds Pro–the results revealed a statistically significant improvement in performance for all three devices when compared to the unaided condition. 

With four levels to choose from, users can alter and tailor how they perceive sound based on their needs with the Galaxy Buds Pro’s Ambient Sound feature, which can magnify adjacent sounds by up to 20 decibels. 

Depending on the amount of technology, hearing aids can cost anywhere from $1,000 to more than $6,000 per unit. As a result, the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro may be a viable alternative for persons with mild to severe hearing loss who are on a tight budget.
