What is the auditory training from Sensoton®?
Auditory training from Sensoton® is designed to help people who suffer from a hearing loss or get new cochlear implants.
Hearing aids are, from a technical point of view, masterpieces.
They can be really helpful, but often hearing impaired people describe the sound as too shrill or too loud when they wear hearing aids for the first time: “My hearing aid sounds tinny".
This phenomenon can be attributed to auditory deprivation.
The auditory brain works differently to the visual brain's center.
A person gets glasses and can see well immediately.
The auditory system can be compared with a muscle. If it's not being trained, voices and sounds have not been heard properly for many years, it will result in a reduction of the hearing performance.
The auditory system shrinks.
With the special designed auditory training from Sensoton®, your auditory system will be rebuilt step by step.
An auditory training improves your listening skills by training your brain.
With a hearing aid, all sounds are again audible from one day to the other.
The auditory system is overstrained because it is not used to it.
The hearing aid user experiences the sounds as strange. The user often states that they hear something but don't understand it.
Sensoton is a 14-days auditory training with multiple listening exercises
The aim is to improve your brain health, at any age or level of ability.
It will give you one workout to complete per day and in just 2 weeks it can kickstart your brain transformation.
You can easily perform it online in front of your computer, laptop or even with your iPhone.
The target of the training is to optimize the use of your hearing aids and gain back the joy of hearing.
With the following auditory training exercises you can train your listening perception:
Each training day consists of multiple listening exercises, the complexity of the tasks increase during the training.
For example, you have to recognize certain sounds from background noise and choose how many times you have heard a sound.
While doing so, the volume of the background noise gets louder, making it harder to hear and identify the sounds.
At the same time, the synapses in the hearing center are strengthened and rebuilt.
You will train your listening perception with the auditory training - the target is for you to hear and understand words and nuances.
Auditory training temporal length
Humans are able to hear minimal time differences.
This specially developed auditory training will help you rebuild the time filter.
Auditory training selection of pitches
The exercise for the pitches will help you to distinguish sounds more accurately from each other.
Auditory training loudness perception
You can recognize the smallest change in a loudness of a sound.
This is important for your listening perception.
Auditory training differentiation of words
The training for differentiation of words will help you to distinguish similarly sounding words from each another.
Was it f(a)me, s(a)me, n(a)me or g(a)me?
Auditory training sound identification
The auditory training for sound identification trains your hearing filter to identify, differentiate and understand sounds from noise.
Auditory training directional hearing
With the innovative exercises for the directional hearing, you will train your hearing for a better orientation, which is important in certain situations e.g. in traffic.

Listening is the human sense that enables verbal communication. Communication via spoken language contains much more information than the typeface.
From the speech melody, we receive information about the well-being, age, the sex and the origin of the interlocutor.
With hearing loss, the person has significantly more problems assessing this type of information.
Misunderstandings can arise when similar-sounding words cannot be differentiated (was the word "f(a)me", "g(a)me", "s(a)me", or "n(a)me"?).
Often people with a hearing loss hear something, but they do not understand it.
The effects are, that it costs a lot of mental energy.
