Parametric Sound Corp. (NASDAQ: PAMT) said it has received US Food and Drug Administration clearance for the marketing of the HyperSound Audio System as a hearing improvement device.
The HyperSound technology has been shown to improve the clarity of audio and speech comprehension in individuals with certain hearing impairments.
HyperSound is an innovation in audio that uses a thin film to generate an ultrasonic beam of sound. Like a flashlight controls a ray of light, HyperSound directs sound in a narrow beam limiting it to a specific location, creating a precise audio zone. When an individual enters the beam´s radius, they hear immersive 3D audio, similar to wearing a surround sound headset.
The characteristics of the HyperSound audio beam have been shown to enable individuals with certain hearing impairments to hear audio with more clarity.
Parametric Sound is an audio technology company that markets innovative products under the Turtle Beach and HyperSound brands.
