We will never look at the term “sound bytes” the same way ever again as the SoundBite system turns it literal – this unique hearing system will help transmit audio to the inner ear through teeth, thanks to a tiny unit that is worn behind the ear as well as an in-the-mouth (ITM) hearing device which will be specially made to fit either the upper left or right back teeth. All captured audio will be sent wirelessly to the ITM device, which will in turn send imperceptible vibrations through the teeth near-simultaneously to both cochleae. This unconventional hearing aid relies on bone conduction, and is currently undergoing clinical trials before it is deemed fit for public usage. Guess this is one hearing aid you can’t wear while eating, eh?
