HDM® for consumers

EU scientists have highlighted that within as little as 5 years listening for only an hour a day at a high volume setting, personal music player users risk permanent hearing loss - showing a particular concern for the hearing of young people.

HDM® Personal protects the hearing of headphone, headset and earpiece users. There are two HDM® Personal technologies – both ensure the best and safest listening experience:

  • A puck in the cable of the earpieces or headphones
  • A software solution where HDM® is delivered as an application that provides both protection and optimises the way the headphones perform with the source device.

With two thirds of surveyed MP3 users listening to music louder than 85 decibels (100 decibels being equivalent to hearing a pneumatic drill 10 feet away), HDM® Personal ensures:

  • A low intrusion solution
  • No effect on sound quality
  • No effect on volume until the listening dose approaches the risk level
  • Warns user of risk and intervention
