Traditional technology: Focuses on one speaker and suppresses all others. When you sit around the dinner table, do you have to work hard to follow the conversation? Perhaps you can hear the person across from you or next to you, but what happens when someone further away says something? If you don’t catch it, the conversation moves on, leaving you behind. The reason is simple. When you have hearing loss, fewer sounds reach your brain. In order to make sense of the sounds, your brain has to work harder. This is especially true when sounds come from different directions – like at the dinner table.
