Exploring Apple AirPods Pro as Hearing Devices

About Soundbites Webinars: Your chance to hear about the latest hearing research from NAL experts from the comfort of home! Join us for Soundbites, interactive webinars presented by leading researchers at NAL.

Presented by Dr. Nicky Chong-White, Senior Research Engineer at the National Acoustic Laboratories.

In this webinar Dr. Chong-White discusses features available in Apple AirPods Pro earbuds that offer similar functionality to hearing aids. Findings from electroacoustic measures of AirPods Pro were shared that indicate how they may provide benefit to hearing and communication for people with mild-to-moderate hearing loss.

This webinar addresses two questions on this topic:

  • What are the hearing accessibility capabilities of AirPods Pro, and how can I set up and personalise them for people with mild-to-moderate hearing loss?
  • How well do AirPods Pro perform as hearing devices to amplify sounds around the listener and improve signal-to-noise ratio?
