The minds behind the BlackCat recently announced that their new product won the 2017 National Science Foundation’s Hearable Challenge.
Samplified Audio, led by industry veterans Mario Augustyniak and Mark Kaal, won the Challenge with their newest product called SnowOwl. SnowOwl is designed to give users a personalized audio experience by matching the sound to the users hearing profile, which is almost as unique as a fingerprint. Using the same Clementine Wear technology powers the BlackCat, SnowOwl can amplify sound where the user wants it while canceling or filtering out noise from other directions.
Announced in April, the Hearables Challenge brought together several different groups to try to find innovative ways to understand speech in noisy situations that could be able to be implemented into consumer audio products. Interest in consumer audio products has been on the rise since the Over-The-Counter Hearing Aid Law was signed on August 18.
SnowOwl will launch on Indiegogo on September 6. If you want to experience Clementine Wear for yourself, but don’t want to wait for the Indiegogo campaign to finish, Hearing Revolution has BlackCats available for purchase right now. Call us at 877-426-0687 for more information.
