Audacious – The Phone Provider that solves hearing challenges
So I was lucky enough to test out a brand new mobile phone provider, Audacious, who have created their brand to tailor the sound quality of calls to each person’s needs. It’s the first in the whole world of its kind, and I think it’s so clever how the technology behind it all works.
As someone who has been losing my own hearing very recently, when I heard all about this, I was so eager to give it a go. I loaded up my SIM card into my phone, and I couldn’t wait to get going. I started off by taking an online ‘Sound Check’ which is their way of checking your hearing levels and frequencies. I initially had a few anxieties as I thought that it was going to be really difficult to figure out how to use this, however they proved me wrong as the whole process was so simple.
I logged into the website, began my sound check, and an automated call came through. I was instructed to hit the button every time I could hear a sound on the call, it literally felt like an appointment with an audiologist in the comfort of my own home – so quick and easy. By the end of this short test, I was given a chart with the frequencies that I could hear, which was really interesting.
Now the setup was out of the way, I really wanted to see how much clearer I could hear my phone calls, so I gave my friend a call from my other phone, then called her from my Audacious phone, and the difference was amazing! I could really tell the difference in speaking to her and not having to ask her to repeat all the time, which was a blessing for both of us!
Just to make sure this wasn’t a fluke, I decided to call a few other friends, and of course I had so much more clarity on the phone calls, and my mind was blown by how different it was to my usual calls. What’s more, when I went out to a local bar, I took a phone call on my Audacious phone, and I could STILL hear my friend talking to me, even though there was a lot of background noise going on.
The whole process was so easy, I didn’t need a new mobile phone as the whole thing works on your standard SIM card, and I was just simply ‘wowed’ at the difference these phone calls made. I also like the fact that they aren’t made purely for those who have hearing difficulties, this service can be used by anyone, as we all hear things differently. Our hearing is as unique as we are!
Thank you Audacious for bringing such clarity back to my phone calls – you may just be seeing me chatting away on the phone a lot more often now!
