Olive Union pushes innovation in hearing assistance

Techstination feature for Friday, July 31, 2020

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.       Olive Union is one of a growing list of companies  that are helping consumers who need hearing assistance …but are reluctant to spend thousands on hearing aids.   The Olive Smart Ear…looks identical to a wireless earbud…but is designed to let you hear better.   An app lets you tune the device to your needs.   Founder and CEO Owen Song…says the app starts with a hearing test..

“We kind of mimic how real audiologists test their patients and we kind of bring that idea to the application.  Now we’re gathering a lot of information and data from hearing tests and keep optimizing the system.”

It can be a big help when having a conversation, watching TV and more.  You can find more info at OliveUnion.com.
