We are passionate about sound and obsessed with overcoming the barriers to better hearing.
Mimi envisions a world where everyone can experience sound in it's fullest detail and purest form, without compromise, and despite the imperfections of human hearing.
The Mimi idea began with a problem, which was this: one sound does not fit all. While today's audio technology has advanced in truly amazing ways, our hearing ability has not. Human hearing is imperfect, unbalanced and deteriorates over time thanks to ageing, genetics or the results on an increasingly noisy world. It means, most of us don't hear sound in its full detail, contrast or richness. When we listen to music frequencies are lost. Nuances can't be processed fully. And listening to to low-quality, default audio settings, millions worldwide are risking irreparable hearing damage, by cranking the volume on headphones and ear-buds.
In 2013, we set out to change this. We wanted to make hearing ability smarter and more in sync with today's technological advances. We began by releasing our now medically certified hearing test app to build awareness on hearing health. Then we released Mimi Music, our showcase app to demonstrate what personalized sound really feels like. We are now over 1 million downloads and the feedback on our apps remains overwhelmingly positive.
But it was never our goal to just build apps.
Our mission is to complete the journey to perfect sound, across platforms, devices and playback systems. By replicating the processes of the inner ear, Mimi adjusts to the individual experience, compensating for the imperfections in human hearing and closing the gap in audio opitmization. It means you, the listener, can finally hear sound, perhaps for the first time, in all it's detail, frequency, and contrast. To us, it means the future of sound has already begun.
