  Purpose

A personal sound amplifying device (PASP) like Teo First is a wearable electronic product that is not intended to compensate for impaired hearing, but rather is intended for non-hearing impaired consumers to amplify sounds in the environment for a number of reasons, such as for recreational activities. Nevertheless, a lot of mild and moderate impaired hearing people don't want to buy and wear all day a real hearing aid.

The goal of our study is to evaluate the benefit of such a device for mild and moderate presbycusis patient 60 years of age and older, with no previous hearing aid.


Condition Intervention
- Mild and Moderate Presbycusis (20 to 50 dB Average Hearing Loss at 500, 1000, 2000 Hz and 4000 Hz)
Device: Use of a personal sound amplifying device = TeoFirst

Study Type: Interventional
