EPOS BrainAdapt™: New Evidence Shows IMPACT 1000 Protects Your Brain in Open Offices

A new clinical study conducted at the Centre for Applied Audiology Research in Oticon, Denmark, has found that EPOS noise attenuation technology can significantly improve cognitive performance in noisy environments. The study, which involved participants performing a dual task of understanding speech and solving a visual task, found that EPOS noise attenuation, such as the hybrid adaptive ANC in IMPACT 1000, can provide several benefits, including:

  • Better speech recognition: Participants were able to understand speech 48% better when using EPOS noise attenuation.

  • Reduced listening effort: Participants spent up to 67% less effort listening when using EPOS noise attenuation, freeing up cognitive resources for other tasks.

  • Increased efficiency: Participants were up to 40% more efficient when using EPOS noise attenuation, as reflected by the ratio between accuracy and reaction time for correct responses.

These findings suggest that EPOS noise attenuation can help people to focus and perform better in noisy environments. This is especially important in today's digitalized workplace, where people are often required to collaborate, communicate, and focus in a variety of settings.

EPOS BrainAdapt™ is a suite of technologies that are designed to support the brain's natural way of processing sound. EPOS BrainAdapt™ solutions are based on decades of psychoacoustic research conducted by the Demant Group, and they are designed to help people to:

  • Focus better in noisy environments
  • Reduce stress and fatigue
  • Improve communication

The IMPACT 1000 is a wireless headset that features hybrid adaptive ANC. This technology can automatically adjust the level of noise cancellation to match the user's environment. The IMPACT 1000 is also backed by psychoacoustic research, and it has been proven to improve speech recognition by 48% and reduce listening effort by up to 67%.

If you are looking for a way to improve your cognitive performance in noisy environments, then EPOS BrainAdapt™ is a great option. EPOS BrainAdapt™ solutions can help you to focus better, reduce stress, and improve communication.
