Project at a Glance

In loud environments it can be difficult for those with hearing impairments to make out words or hear the voices of those whom they are speaking with. This device is intended to help those that are hard of hearing. The use of this device is not limited to the use of those with hearing difficulties, it can be used by anyone.

Project Description

Noise Cancelling Hearing Device

In loud environments it can be difficult for those with hearing impairments to make out words or hear the voices of those whom they are speaking with. This device is intended to help those that are hard of hearing. The use of this device is not limited to the use of those with hearing difficulties, it can be used by anyone. Loud environments can include but are not limited to; loud sports arenas, sports bars/nightclubs, loud buses or trains, factories or even war zones.

The way that this device is intended to function is by cancelling most of the “background” noise that prevents the voice from being heard. At the same time it will amplify the human voice that its microphone is purposely directed at so that it is heard clearly. Eventually the technology of this device may serve other purposes but for now it is only intended to enhance the quality of human life. Some of the skills that will be required for this design include; understanding of the human ear/hearing, knowledge of signal analysis, amplifiers & filters design.
