ETYMOTIC launches Audio Awareness app for Android

Supermarkets, streets, buses – everywhere you look people are plugged into their mobile devices. It’s a great feeling to be in your own world, listening to your music of choice whilst the world passes you by in the street. However, with the volume levels of many devices and isolation headphones it can be very difficult to be aware of your surroundings. Many times I have seen people crossing the road and not hearing oncoming traffic, people so involved in their music that they nearly get run-over.

Etymotic Research (a specialist in hearing wellness solutions) has announced the ‘Awareness!® Phone for Etymotic’ an Android app for Etymotic’s hf2-an and mc2-an noise-isolating headsets + earphones. The Awareness! Android app offers noise isolation and sound quality, whilst allowing you to still be completely aware of your surroundings. The app “listens” to a users’ surroundings and allows them to mix outside sounds directly into their earphones at a level of their choice.

“Until now, noise isolation meant tuning out,” said Mark Karnes, managing director of consumer products at Etymotic. “When we launched AWARENESS! for Apple devices last year, we brought programmable noise isolation to market for the first time, changing the way people listen to music. Now, we are able to bring that same experience to millions of Android 4.1 smartphone devices.”

UK-based audio app specialist Essency Ltd. developed the popular Awareness! for Etymotic app for Etymotic’s hf3 and mc3 headsets+earphones, which is now also upgraded for use with the latest Apple products: iPad, iPad Mini, iPhone 5 and the latest iPod touch.

Current users of Etymotic earphones can check compatibility and register for an unlock code at awareness. They can then download the Awareness! Etymotic Phone app via the Google Play app store.
