Galaxy Buds Pro Effective for People with Hearing Loss, Study Reveals
New research conducted by Samsung Medical Center suggests Galaxy Buds Pro could assist those with hearing impairments to better engage in conversations
Samsung Electronics today revealed the findings of a new study published in Clinical and Experimental Otorhinolaryngology, a renowned scientific journal dedicated to ear, nose, and throat (ENT) research.
First, the electroacoustic characteristics of each device were assessed to see if they met the key performance criteria for hearing aids: output sound pressure level, frequency range, equivalent input noise, and total harmonic distortion.
Sound Amplification Evaluation
Then, a sound amplification evaluation was performed to examine if the devices adequately boosted sound.
Clinical Performance Evaluation
Participants had mild to moderate hearing loss, with a median age of 63 years. Statistical significance was observed at 1,000Hz, 2,000Hz and 6,000Hz, meaning Galaxy Buds Pro sufficiently amplified sound at the three frequencies of speech pitches. Furthermore, in total, over 57 percent of the participants reported that Galaxy Buds Pro were able to help them communicate in a quiet environment.
