Smart Hearing Amplifier
Empowered hearing, wherever you are.
Mimi is a super easy way to hear better in different situations. Choose between 18 different presets to find out the one which best fits your lifestyle.
Select a preset
Mimi helps you to hear better by using curated presets, based on scientific research on hearing loss. The presets are grouped into two categories: slope and hump.
Explore between settings
You might find that different settings work in different situations i.e car, tv, restaurant, listening to music, etc. Don’t be afraid to explore the alternatives.
Once you find your favourite preset, you can adjust the volume and noise filter to your liking to create an even better fit.
Mimi is more than a smartphone app.
Mimi is the first step to start hearing better.
We recommend using the apple EarPods or EarBuds. We calibrated the test for these headphones because everyone who has an iPhone/iPad/iPod got these with their purchase. This means that in principle everyone should be able to do an accurate test. We recognise that some people will have invested in even better headphones or might be unable to locate theirs (We’ve been there). Therefore we are working on calibrating the test for other headphones as well, so stay tuned.
The environment in which you test your hearing definitely affects the results you will have. Background noise makes it harder to distinguish a certain tone, especially if the noise is in the same frequency as the tone you’re testing.
It is therefore that we have build a noise monitor into the app. This function indicates whether the background noise around you is too loud. Within the range that it indicates you’re able to do the hearing test we can assure accurate results. So as long as you’re not bugged by the noise monitor, you’re fine. If you are, you should probably find a more quiet room, or take the test at a later time.
Yes, you can also test your friend. Just create a new profile and let your friend do the hearing test.
We are currently working on providing Mimi a android versions as soon as possible.
All sounds are combinations of frequencies. These frequencies can range from low (like a, or o) to high (like s, or c). When we talk, our voices produce sounds at different frequencies.
We mapped down 18 settings to cover the maximum situations possible, so you can experience enhanced hearing all the time.
“Slope” and “hump” are the two categories according to which the 18 settings are grouped by. They refer to the shape of your gain profile, describing which sound frequencies are being amplified and by how much.
As you get older it is natural to have difficulties with hearing in certain situations. Sounds in the higher end of the frequency spectrum become harder to hear. The presets in the slope category are specifically designed for this. They boost the higher end of the frequency spectrum. Try out the different presets on the slope screen to experience how you could benefit from hearing enhancement.
The presets in the hump category will help if the reason you have hearing difficulty is due to factors other than age. Over-exposure to loud noises is an example (this time you can actually blame it on rock’n roll). The first column of presets (low-mild to low-heavy) boost sound in the lower end of the frequency spectrum, the second column in the middle and lastly the third column boosts sounds in the higher end of the spectrum. These noise-related hearing difficulties are often quite specific, so not all presets will work for you.
