Jacoti ListenApp® is a software-based hearing aid. It can be configured by taking a test with Jacoti Hearing Center or by entering a recent audiogram and enhances sound to compensate for your individual hearing difficulties.
Jacoti ListenApp is separately FDA listed as a Class I Medical Device in the U.S. and complies with the CE requirements for medical devices (CE 0086) in Europe.
Jacoti ListenApp processes the sound around you and helps you to cope with difficult listening situations without tiring you with too much amplification. Jacoti ListenApp also processes sound coming from your local music library and from Jacoti Lola, Jacoti's assistive listening system.
Please note that Jacoti ListenApp does not amplify phone calls.
The intended use of Jacoti ListenApp is to amplify and transmit sound to the ear and hereby compensate for impaired hearing. Jacoti ListenApp is indicated for mild to moderate hearing losses. Your audiogram data is used to optimize Jacoti ListenApp for you. It has been designed to be used along with Apple EarPods headphones, so you must use them to ensure the proper functioning of ListenApp.
Jacoti ListenApp has a very intuitive interface that can be used by people of all ages. Since it can run in the background, you can use it while surfing the web, writing emails, taking pictures, etc. It offers different listening modes and advanced controls, such as a bass / treble slider, which allow you to customize the app for your own personal hearing difficulties.
Jacoti ListenApp is tested and approved in compliance with the most rigorous medical and technical standards for hearing aids. This guarantees you safe and efficient use of the application.
Jacoti ListenApp requires you to register with a valid email account on myJacoti (http://www.jacoti.com/my-jacoti/), which allows you to share your audio profile across devices.
The app can be configured directly on the device, but it also allows the hearing expert of your choice to optimize your hearing settings remotely.

Mild to moderate hearing loss
I have mild to moderate hearing loss--there are a few spots in the top of my range I cannot hear. This isn't usually a problem, but a large portion of one of my daughters' voice range is in the area of my loss. I put in the ear buds and had her cover her mouth. I could hear everything she said, unless she was whispering VERY quietly, then I could only hear half of her words.
One was, I had to listen to my own amplified voice. I'm guessing that is a downside of all hearing helps.
The other downside was that it made a very high pitched squeal (like a real hearing aid, according to my husband). The squeal was annoying to my daughter; when turned down it wasn't too bad, but I couldn't hear quite as well.
The interface was easy to use--I typed in the information from a recent doctor visit and I was pleased with how simple it was to get started. I don't have other aids to compare it to, but I think it's a great place to start--like buying reading glasses at the dollar store.
Bottom line: I give it five stars because it's free and it works quite well for discerning speech. I'm guessing the app will improve over time, but I'm pleased that conversations with my daughter are now back in good form.
