SAN DIEGO, CA: Turtle Beach, an audio technology company partners with Audiology Management Group, a provider of audiology services, for the development of HyperSound Clear - a new approach to sound delivery generating a highly directional, narrow beam of audio in the air.

HyperSound Clear uses a thin film to generate an ultrasonic beam of sound and 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 giving improved sound clarity and speech intelligibility for people with hearing loss for a crisp, clear home entertainment listening experience.

"HyperSound Clear is a unique and innovative device for hearing healthcare. Why? Because, most importantly, HyperSound Clear has the potential to motivate people with hearing loss to address their hearing issues earlier in life," assures Michael Tease, President, Audiology Management Group.

The ability to deploy highly focused audio in business environments opens up further opportunities for the product to be commercialized in in-store audio, retail kiosks and more. It is also stated that the latest HyperSound technology removes the barriers that have prevented the use of audio in a wide variety of settings, such as sound bleed and noise pollution.

"We think HyperSound Clear will be a great entry-level hearing healthcare device that directly addresses that issue with hearing and enjoying home entertainment," says Rodney Schutt, Senior Vice President and General Manager for the HyperSound business of Turtle Beach Corporation.
