For professionals today who can often work from anywhere, at any time, these new modern work environments bring distractions and ambient noises – making it challenging for employees to stay engaged, perform and be productive. EPOS audio devices built on BrainAdapt™ technology frees up cognitive resources and improves performance, by minimizing brain effort spent on listening and understanding speech.
A Dual Task Study
The research was conducted by EPOS at the Centre for Applied Audiology Research (CAAR)1, Oticon, Denmark, with a focus on pupillometry tracking, speech recognition performance and subjective listening effort ratings for each noise condition. The users performed the listening and visual task when the background noise was Attenuated and when the background noise was not Attenuated, with the visual task only used as the baseline.
This study is just one example of decades of psychoacoustic research conducted by the Demant Group, of which EPOS is proud to be a part. The learnings collected in this study and others, are applied in ongoing development of EPOS BrainAdapt™ solutions, which are designed to support the brain’s natural way of processing sound.
The technology tested in this study is featured in the following EPOS Enterprise products:
