Mimi’s Sound Personalization offers easy to use tools that give consumers control of how they experience audio and manage their hearing wellbeing on Philips’ 2022 range of Ambilight TVs
BERLIN, Germany, September 1, 2022 — Mimi Hearing Technologies, the global leader in hearing wellbeing, expanded its partnership with TP Vision, which will now integrate Mimi’s Sound Personalization and feature set into a new line of Philip’s televisions. TP Vision designs, develops, manufactures and markets Philips-branded TV’s in Europe, Russia, Middle East, South America, India and selected countries in Asia-Pacific.
“We’re honored to be Philips TV’s integrated audio partner for its new series of Ambilight TV models that take sound personalization and hearing health to the next level,” said Philipp Skribanowitz, CEO of Mimi. “Like Philips, Mimi Hearing Technologies was built to deliver a better audio experience for televisions and other audio devices—that’s why this is a perfect fit. Our sound personalization technology and Philips’ new 2022 TV sets create an optimal listening experience for consumers.”
Mimi provides inclusive audio by bridging the gap between users’ hearing ability and their listening experience. Everyone hears differently, and based on Mimi’s 2019 hearing data, 55% of the adult population has some type of hearing loss, which mostly goes unrecognized and untreated for the vast majority of people, regardless of age.
The below new Philips features and functionalities are available pre-installed on the 2022 range of Ambilight televisions. Consumers that have purchased a 2021 Ambilight TV can also enjoy the new features and functionalities after a software update.
Hearing Test Options
- Users can now take the TV hearing test directly on the TV using the television remote.
- The Mimi TV app is located in the Smart TV’s “Apps” section alongside other pre-installed TV apps.
- The user will take the hearing test through the television set’s speakers, following the test instructions.
- After finalizing the assessment, the user can switch on the sound personalization.
- Users still have the option to take the test on their smartphone and sync their Hearing ID to the TV using a QR code.
- Play an audio sample to hear the audio with Mimi turned on.
- Turn Mimi Sound Personalization on or off.
- Learn more about what the results mean. For example, a user will receive a personalized visual graph that shows if they can hear more detail (the sound of thunder) or less detail (birds chirping).
- Now, users can add more profiles to the Mimi TV app by providing the person’s year of birth.
- Users can select which people are watching a particular movie or television show.
- Sound is optimized based on the particular group watching the movie or television show.
- Group mode feature has no limits regarding the number of participants in a group, however, we recommend 6-8 profiles in order to have the best personalized experience.
“The Mimi Hearing Technologies team has seen the urgent need to take care of the gap between hearing and audio, producing the most personalized sound experience that is tailored to the unique hearing ability of the users,” said Martijn Smelt, CMO,TP Vision– Philips TV & Sound. “Mimi’s bio-algorithm replicates the way the human ear works and we’re excited to implement it in our new line of televisions.”
Mimi Sound Personalization is available throughout Europe on all models in the following 2022 Ambilight Philips TV Series:The One (PUS8507 and PUS8807), MiniLED PML9507, OLED707, OLED807 and the award-winning OLED+range (OLED907 and OLED937). Philips Ambilight TVs from 2021 will receive a software update to enable the new functionalities to a broad audience.
The new Philips TV’s will allow users to use Mimi’s technology to adapt the audio signal to their hearing ability, compensating for less than perfect hearing. This creates a richer and more immersive sound experience, dialogue is brought back that may have been lost and the ability to adjust the audio, not the volume. Consumers can now kick back and have a more enjoyable movie and television show viewing experience with no listening fatigue.
