    Tiens-nous bien au courant de tes expériences et résultats (évaluations).

    Chinese medicine would be more my preferred method to improve my hearing. ...And much more, life's expansion related; vision, heart, etc.

    In France it's not allowed, but in a lot of European countries it's allowed. I have had good result with liver's problem and official medicine can't do anything for me . But it's not definitive, I am obliged to take a treatment each 1.5 or 2 years.

    So what happens if the drugs are too effective and you end up with a massive 30 dB "hump" in your frequency response at 4 Khz? Ouch. The dentist's scaling tool drives me nuts enough as it is!

    DSP Medicine | Hearing-Aid

    "Modern technology may be on the trail of a solution, thanks to — you guessed it — DSP. Plus, neural networks, "deep-learning" machine-learning algorithms, and the nano-ization of processing hardware and transducers. A recent article from IEE Spectrum (the journal of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) recounts research conducted at Ohio State University, building on work at McGill and elsewhere, to develop "actively smart" (my words) DSP filtering that can extract speech from blanketing noise, including other voices — the long-known "cocktail-party effect" — with astonishing precision."
