Klisten, participating in the Consumer Electronics Show 2008 in Las Vegas this week, is exhibiting its personalized sound enhancement solution, “WiseAudio,” showing its core functions and capabilities.
WiseAudio is a technology designed to protect hearing and prevents conditions commonly known as iPod Ears, Acoustic trauma, and noise-induced hearing loss. These conditions are more frequently reported by prolonged usage of portable audio players like iPods, which are becoming more prevalent every day.
Irreversible damage to the ears results in users filing lawsuits against manufacturers, which is part of the reason HAC regulation has made hearing loss an issue to be addressed at once — in addition, of course, to a fundamental concern for the well-being of iPod owners.
Klisten said its WiseAudio solution makes use of fine audio techniques that uses individual users’ PTA (Pure ToneAudiometry) Test results. This test is usually conducted in otorhinolaryngology clinics, making use of the principal that each individual has his own auditory character, very much like his fingerprint.
Through a combination of medical and IT technologies, WiseAudio is capable of calibrating a person’s auditory character in just 90 seconds to provide enhanced sound without affecting the user’s hearing, according to the company.
The WiseAudio solution is suitable for PCs with WATester, WAAudio/Video Player, WAMicrophone, and WAMix. Further the ActiveSync version is applicable for mobile devices, like cell phones, MP3 players, and PDAs, as well as other audio devices. It is also suitable for other platforms, including Windows Mobile 5.0, WinCE, Embedded Linux, Symbian (News
), REX, and BREW.
WiseAudio’s sound optimizing technology is also available in equipment like radiotelegraphs, personal mobile devices, car and home A/V equipment, and professional audio systems, according to Klisten.
