Do you enjoy putting on your ear buds and listening to some good music? Well I recommend you try TSC Music from Earlogic Corporation. The app was created to help you enjoy music better but to also protect your hearing. TSC stands for Threshold Sound Conditioning.
When you first download the app, you will need to setup an account. After you do that and log in you will need to personalize your sound experience. You will begin by testing and setting five different frequencies for each ear. Next you will listen to Soundcloud or You Tube video to finalize the optimization.
I had some “problems” at first, as the directions did not seem too clear to me, but I eventually figured it out. Overall the app layout works and there is a help section if needed.
After you calibrate the hearing levels, then it is time to get down! In the music section, you can search for any song or video you have on your device. You can search by song, artist, album, genre, playlists.
When you play a song or video, you can turn on/off the Active EQ. The Active EQ makes a significant difference in the sound, which is the whole reason you use the app. 🙂
The active graphics sections will show you graphs to give you a quick run down of how often you used the app to listen to music. The neat thing about the app is that you can test your hearing as often as you like, so you can see who it has improved or gotten worse.
Overall I like the app and really enjoyed playing my favorite songs through it. Being able to customize the sound to my specific hearing via the Active EQ really make a nice difference in the music. If you are a heavy music listener, you should try this app and hear the difference. It is hard to talk about a music app, you really need to experience it!
I will end my post with, “why do we car about hearing loss?” From their press release:
“Today, one in five individuals suffer from some degree of hearing loss, and 48 million people in the United States have hearing loss in one ear. The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that more than one billion teenagers and young adults have or are at risk of premature hearing loss. The increased risk is mostly attributed to audio devices, smartphones, earbuds and headphones used to listen to music and videos.”
