WEVELGEM, Belgium, November 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
In its first major public demonstration, Jacoti Lola, the software-based low-latency listening application for smartphones and tablets, delivered high-quality wireless hearing assistance over Wi-Fi at the AuDacity 2016 audiology convention in San Diego.
Operating perfectly in an extremely dense wireless environment, up to 60 Lola-enabled devices were deployed throughout AuDacity's meeting rooms, including the large Convention room. Conference attendees used either their own earphones, Jacoti-supplied headphones, and even their own Made-for-iPhone hearing aids. Attendees both with and without hearing loss were amazed at the sound quality, ease of use, and flexibility of Jacoti Lola.
An astonishing 100% of Lola users at AuDacity rated Lola's sound quality as "excellent" (53%) or "good" (47%). In addition, 100% of Lola users who had hearing loss reported that Lola improved speech understanding, with a vast majority (86%) reporting that Lola helped "a lot."
"We are thrilled with Jacoti Lola's spectacular performance and enthusiastic reception at AuDacity," said Jacques Kinsbergen, CEO of Jacoti, an innovative Belgium-based hearing company. "We believe Jacoti Lola's proprietary protocol is so advanced and useful that it should be deeply integrated into every smartphone, tv, and any consumer device with audio. We are planning even larger demonstrations of Lola's exceptional capacity to provide high-quality live audio streaming."
