A Pune-based start-up has launched an app that uses mobile technology to enable hearing impaired people customise their listening experience by using results of a simple, interactive hearing test.

The app 'Q+' developed by Quadio Devices offers different modes which optimise hearing in different situations like when at a restaurant, or while driving. It also has a mode which makes it easier to watch TV or videos. According to the company, the hearing test in the app is calibrated for accuracy, as per ANSI standards of audiometry.

"Hearing loss is the second largest disability in the country that affects more than 120 million lives with majority sufferers over the age of 60. There are less than 2,000 practicing audiologists in India and therefore most people have never actually received treatment until their hearing has degraded severely with age," said Neeraj Dotel, CEO of Quadio Devices.

The app is available for free on Google Play and iTunes and comes in two versions - Pro and Lite.
