Wear appears a regular necklace, but with a built-in high-fidelity analog microphone it is designed to capture conversations in noisy environments and filter out unwanted noise
Sound is relayed to the ears with any pair of headphones with the user able to control the volume by a knob on the device
Wear is designed to help those with hearing difficulties make sense of conversations in noisy environments
From hiding hearing aids in your mouth to having them built-in to the arms of your glasses, we have seen some innovative efforts to assist those with hearing difficulties in recent years. With these unobtrusive technologies available, you might think that wearing a hearing aid around your neck would be the least desirable of options. Yet the team behind Wear believe that by favoring comfort and aesthetics over discretion, it may have conceived a viable alternative.
