A few weeks ago I wrote the article How To Defeat Mind-Numbing Room Echo where I explain a few tricks to control echo in a room. I suggest you read the article too.
Why is this important?
When you wear hearing aids, echo can be one of your worst nightmares. Hearing aids aren’t as good as the brain at isolating echo so it can be really hard to hear a conversation in an echo-y room.
I’ve recorded a video (the very first for Superhuman Hearing!) to show you how you can control echo in a room with three simple tricks:
1. The curtains
2. The bags in the corner
3. The hanging blanket
In Part 2 of this Echo Series I will show you how to use a mobile app to measure echo. This is important because when you can measure echo you can use technology to know more accurately how much echo you can tolerate. Part 2 is now available here: http://getsuperhumanhearing.com/video-how-to-measure-echo-in-a-room/
First, watch Part 1 here:
Since this is my first video, I’d really love some feedback. Can you hear it OK? Can you see/understand the subtitles? Am I speaking clearly enough? Does the demo help you? Can you hear the echo in the video?
Any feedback welcome, please comment below.
