Free online seminar on “Optimizing listening effort of communication devices” hosted by HEAD acoustics

Using  a  communication  device  in  noisy  environments  increases  the  effort  needed  to  listen  and understand the received speech signal. Since this (near-end) noise  cannot be  reduced, various techniques are applied in different devices: Active noise cancellation (ANC) in headsets, various types of near-end listening enhancement (NELE) in handsets and hands-free and in-car communication (ICC) systems in vehicles. Qualification and optimization of these implementations is key for the market success and a good user experience. To give an overview over challenges and advantages of evaluating listening effort of communication devices, HEAD acoustics will host a free online seminar on September 1, 2020.
