You have a hearing loss and you want to communicate more easily with people who are important to you in both quiet and noisy situations. You also want to listen to the television and radio more easily. You’ve come to the right website. Missing out on conversations and your programs can be a thing of the past with clEAR auditory brain training games.

clEAR will train your ability to recognize speech, both in quiet and in the presence of noise. Importantly, clEAR will also train your brain and exercise those cognitive skills that are important for understanding speech, skills such as word memory and attention.

You won’t be training alone. Your local professional Hearing Healthcare Professional or our Online clEAR Audiologist will give you support throughout your subscription.

With clEAR, you can customize your auditory brain training. You can use either the generic voices that are stored in the games or you can record the voices of people who are important to you, such as your partner or your children.

From the boardroom table to the dining room table, practice your listening skills to become more engaged in conversation today.

    Practice listening to the voice or voices that are most important to you! With clEAR's easy recording system, the people who are important to you can record words and sentences directly into clEAR games. You then play the games and learn to better understand their speech. Your hearing healthcare professional can help you make the recordings. You will also have the option of choosing to train with "generic" voices that are stored on the clEAR website, giving you the ability to train with the voices of males, females, children, or a combination of all three. You will also have a training schedule designed for your specific needs.

    The clEAR games are the result of decade of National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded research at Washington University in St. Louis. The clEAR scientists incorporated principles of cognitive psychology, second language learning, and game design into the program's format. Published research shows that people who use clEAR improve their speech recognition, would participate in clEAR again, and would recommend clEAR to a friend.
