Designed to improve your ability to hear in noise

Works best in noisy environments

Noopl’s technology uses a three-microphone array with a configuration that enables the formation of a steerable beamformer. Noopl’s beamformer improves the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) in acoustically challenging environments such as restaurants, bars, family gatherings, and meeting rooms. 

Control how narrow or wide you focus your Noopl using the Noopl Listen app.

Lightning fast steering

Lightning fast steering

Head steering information from the AirPods Pro® is passed through the iPhone to the Noopl 1.0 accessory to steer the directional array based on the direction the user is looking every few milliseconds. In addition, the app automatically recognizes whether the user is holding the phone or has their phone on a table and optimizes the directional performance accordingly.

Hear the difference

Compare the same conversation with and without Noopl and hear the difference for yourself

Testing in the Lab

Does Noopl really make hearing conversations clearer in noise? Join us and listen for yourself, recorded live in our lab with KEMAR (Knowles Electronic Manikin for Acoustic Research). KEMAR is sitting across from a single speaker, which simulates a seated table conversation. Five additional speakers surround KEMAR in the room to simulate sound in a crowded environment.

Improved speech processing featuring Chatable AI 2.0

Chatable AI 2.0 is the next generation conversational AI. It’s the unique fusion of proprietary Deep Learning AI with cutting-edge auditory neuroscience know-how and functions similarly to how a human brain processes speech to make it easier to follow conversation. The advanced Deep Neural Network technology takes in sound, and from it produces a clear, loud and precise voice feeding straight into the ear, indiscernible from the original and with substantially reduced background noise. Chatable AI 2.0 is continuously learning and improving over time with regular updates to the Noopl App.

Incredible performance from quality parts

Digital MEMS microphones provide the precision and stability in matching that allows for excellent directional performance which is uncompromised by changes in heat and humidity.

High fidelity of what you want to hear

The low-voltage, low-power stereo audio codec drives a balanced-armature receiver to preserve and amplify the directional stream that couples to the iPhone’s front-end ensuring high-fidelity transmission of the signal of interest.

Super fast processing

The ultra-low-power microprocessor operates at 120 MHz which performs up to 150 million instructions per second (Dhrystone MIPS) allowing the audio signal processing to compute the directional beam which can be steered to within 2 degrees of azimuthal precision, allowing the user to focus on the source they want to hear. An environmental detection algorithm, which is updated every few milliseconds, ensures that the optimal signal-to-noise ratio improvement is maintained across diverse acoustical conditions.

Grounded in data and science

The scientists and engineers at the National Acoustic Laboratories (NAL) in collaboration with the HEARing CRC and the University of Melbourne and Noopl, Inc. spent over 5 years perfecting the microphone array processing used in the Noopl 1.0 accessory.
