Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro is effective for people with hearing loss and helping them with a better listening experience. The company revealed the findings of a new study published in Clinical and Experimental Otorhinolaryngology, a renowned scientific journal dedicated to ear, nose, and throat (ENT) research. According to the study, the Galaxy Buds Pro’s Ambient Sound feature is effective in helping those with mild to moderate hearing loss to better hear sounds in their surroundings.

This research is in collaboration with Samsung Medical Center, Asia’s leading hospital with outstanding health care services and research achievements. Moreover, Samsung Electronics is working in collaboration with Samsung Medical Center for over 10 years. It is focusing on the impact mobile devices can have on hearing. Moreover, also researching new ways to optimize sound experiences for users.
“With rapidly aging populations it’s expected that, by 2050, one in ten people will have hearing loss. But while hearing aids are useful for managing hearing impairments, uptake remains relatively low, mainly due to the high price,” said Il Joon Moon, Associate Professor at the Department of Otorhinolaryngology at Samsung Medical Center. “The initial study findings are very promising. It does encourage people to discover alternative devices, such as Galaxy Buds Pro, that can support them in their day to day lives”.

Details of the study
The study assesses the efficacies of a hearing aid, a personal sound amplification product, and Galaxy Buds Pro. Furthermore, there are no other studies available for the evaluation of truly wireless earbuds when it comes to hearing aid. The study is the first to demonstrate the potential benefit of TWS for individuals with mild to moderate hearing impairments. Additionally, it has the potential to improve the lives of 1.5 billion people globally who are currently living with some degree of hearing loss.
In addition, the study claims that the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro, the hearing aid, and the personal sound amplification product underwent three key tests. It is including electroacoustic assessment, sound amplification evaluation, and a clinical performance evaluation.

Each device was assessed to see if it met the key performance criteria for hearing aids. Then, a sound amplification evaluation examined if the devices adequately boosted sound. Finally, a clinical performance evaluation investigates changes in individuals’ hearing levels both with and without the devices. In addition, to their ability to recognize words and sentences.
According to the study, “Statistical significance observes at 1,000Hz, 2,000Hz and 6,000Hz. It means that Galaxy Buds Pro sufficiently amplified sound at the three frequencies of speech pitches. Furthermore, over 57% of the participants report that it was able to help them communicate in a quiet environment”.
According to the results, the Galaxy Buds Pro meets all the criteria in the tests.
