Jacoti HearingKit® is a software development kit (SDK) that allows the development of real-time audio applications for the purpose of processing audio to the unique hearing profile of a listener, including those with normal hearing or with hearing loss. It offers a C++ Application Programming Interface (API) which can be used to provide hearing assessment, hearing loss compensation and sound personalisation on a single integrated audio system.
Note: Jacoti HearingKit® API provides the means for independently activating or deactivating the different modules that use the Jacoti HearingKit® Technology.
Jacoti HearingKit® technology provides hearing loss compensation for individuals through the application of the Hearing Loss Compensation (HLC) algorithm as well as Automatic Gain Control (signal compression), noise reduction and gain maximisation algorithms.
Jacoti HearingKit® also provides a set of presets or programs tailored to specific listening situations like clear speech, natural sound, or music. Jacoti HearingKit®-enabled applications typically use the Jacoti HearingKit® real-time audio processing engine which handles the cascading of algorithms and provides a simple interface for processing audio frames.Find out more about how Jacoti adapts sound to individual needs
Jacoti HearingKit® is a proprietary software library that applies hearing loss compensation to audio signals. It offers a C++ Application Programming Interface (API), which is used by all Jacoti products that provide hearing loss compensation.
A recent peer-reviewed study in the American Journal of Audiology found that Duotone®, the hearing test method powered by Jacoti HearingKit® produced results as reliable as those generated by audiometric equipment in an audiologist's office.Home-based audiometry with a smartphone app. Reliable results?
Jacoti HearingKit® was presented for the first time at the 2010 Conference of the Cochlear Implant Group of India (CIGICON 2010) as Inthear®.Press Release
Jacoti has a CE-approved Quality Management System (QMS) in place for the design, development, production, sales and distribution of software applications for people with hearing loss and hearing experts.CE mark and regulatory
Jacoti HearingKit® provides hearing assessment and audio personalisation capabilities at the chip level with no perceptible added latency in the Qualcomm audio SoCs.
Individuals with normal to profound hearing losses are able to self-administer a hearing test in any quiet environment and obtain clinically valid audiograms by using Jacoti Hearing Center app.
Certified by the CE in Europe and registered with FDA in the US as a medical hearing aid device, Jacoti ListenApp enables people with mild to moderate hearing losses to use their iPhone for safe and effective hearing assistance.
Jacoti is interested in setting up cooperation and collaborative research with researchers and research centres to generate further development. If you are interested in being part of the new field of consumerisation of hearing technology, please contact us.Contact
