The world of digital continues its inexorable march towards taking over everything in our lives, and nowhere is this more apparent than with devices aimed at improving our senses. We can now see in the dark, touch remote objects with precision robots and hear better than ever before.
The VitaSound Audio Enhancer System is a good example of what we mean. This is not just a basic hearing aid product, it actually manages to cram in some clever tech you wouldn’t expect to find in a gadget of this type. The TV enhancement mode improves conversation on screen to make it easier to hear, and there’s also a ‘phone’ mode to enhance call clarity.
We like the addition of the ‘relax’ mode, which plays back soothing sounds like rainfall, waves and bird sound, and the unit comes with four different silicone tips for the earbuds which should ensure a comfortable fit. We’re not quite sure what ‘neuro-compensator technology’ is, but we’re hoping it’s going to be worth the $299.95 price you’ll be paying for the product.
