“We are pleased to bring this exceptional technology to a price point that allows more people to enjoy their music safely, and still enjoy a full audio experience,” said Able Planet’s chairman and CEO Kevin Semcken. “Current consumer technologies are unable to address challenges relating to hearing loss, difficult listening environments, and hard to hear sounds and speech, forcing listeners to turn it up to potentially damaging levels. Able Planet technologies create a “live” experience with full rich sound and clear speech that can be used by people with All Levels of Hearing and is enjoyed at lower volumes enabling listeners to “Turn it Down” to help preserve hearing.”

Originally developed for a new generation top‐of‐the‐line hearing aids, the LINX AUDIO® technology alters the audio signal to increase the intensity of higher frequency harmonics. This approach makes it easier for listeners to hear words, music and sounds as well as increases the perception of loudness without increasing the volume. Able Planet products provide a full rich sound at safer, lower volumes.
