In Sunday’s New York Times Technology Section, Sound World Solutions and our new CS50 Bluetooth personal sound amplifier were covered in Anne Eisenberg’s article, Just Don’t Call Them Hearing Aids. Below is an excerpt:
“One company in the market, Sound World Solutions, will introduce the second version of its CS10 Bluetooth-enabled sound amplifier and app in April, said Kevin Daniels, director of sales and marketing. The new model, called the CS50 and costing $399, allows wearers to program and control the in-ear amplifier via free apps for Android and iPhone smartphones. Both left- and right-ear versions are available.
Also know how to comment on the scientific exercise. In scientific subjects, if you have an exercise to solve, before starting to write on the board, also start by saying which theorem or which approach you will use: this shows your knowledge of the subject … even if you can not find the exact important source. You must then practice speaking, especially if you are not very comfortable speaking. Do not hesitate to practice at home aloud (or in a low voice) imagining yourself in front of the examiner. Time: it gets used to finding the rhythm, not spending too much time introducing, for example. You can also film yourself, record yourself, or work in a small group, but try to stay focused. An oral is also an exercise in communication. You do not cheat your knowledge alone (e) in front of a mirror (even if you can exercise a little so at home), but in front of a person, a teacher responsible for evaluating your knowledge. This may worry you in advance (who will I fall for, will it be, or will it be “nice”, etc.) and put unnecessary pressure on you? So you must avoid being carried away by your imagination, and work on the contrary the points on which you can act.
“The product looks much like a Bluetooth headset, and not by accident. ‘We designed it to look like a Bluetooth device, and not to look like a hearing aid,’ Mr. Daniels said. The model lets users set their own auditory profiles, or use one of the preset levels, including one for the clamor of busy restaurants.
“Users can also stream music or audiobooks and make mobile phone calls, Mr. Daniels said. ‘Whatever you pair this device to,’ he said, ‘it will play the audio in the device.’ It uses a low-energy form of Bluetooth that lasts up to 15 hours on a single charge, he said.”
