How We Make Your Hearing Profile

Did you know that your ear actually makes a noise? When it receives sound input a little part of your ear vibrates and emits a sound back. We use this in our devices to create your hearing profile, so it is uniquely yours. 

Nura devices are the first to automatically learn how you hear and sonically shape the sound to make it perfect for you. Both the Nuraphone and the NuraLoop perform an Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE) test on your ears during the Personalisation Process. 

The test measures your ears' response to a range of frequencies, from low to high, and only takes about a minute. The sound waves are picked up by six extremely sensitive microphones, and the in-built engine uses this information to create your unique profile. 

How it works

Nura devices measure the OAE, which originates in the cochlea and vibrates the eardrum, turning it into a speaker and playing sound back out of your ear. This sound is about 10,000 times smaller than the sound that went in

The returning sound wave includes information about how well you heard the sound that went in. Once the Nura device has created your hearing profile it sonically shapes your music so that it matches your hearing and delivers all the detail of the music you love.

What does my hearing profile mean?

The Nura app creates a unique hearing profile that represents how you hear. The shape of the profile contains all the information about your relative hearing sensitivity to different tones.

What does the shape of my profile mean?

The shape is our hearing sensitivity wrapped around a circle. Low notes at 12 o'clock and higher notes as the dial travels clockwise. The further away from the centre, the more sensitive you are to those frequencies.

What's my colour?

Our hearing is unique. At low notes and high notes and in the left ear and right ear. It's not about good hearing or bad hearing. Nura devices pick two colours unique to you so you can immediately recognise your hearing profile.
