Hansair and Mimi to revolutionize the in-flight sound experience

Mimi joins Hansair at the Aircraft Interiors Expo this week to announce that our award winning sound personalization technology will be available to passengers dealing with the challenges of noisy aircraft environments.

Mimi is the world leader in personalizing sound for an optimized, individualized listening experience. More than 1.2 million people worldwide have already downloaded Mimi's award winning apps: Mimi Hearing Test and Mimi Music. The patented innovation is now also being integrated into products and solutions by global brands in the audio industry, such as beyerdynamic's award-winning Aventho wireless headphones which has Mimi's sound personalization built-in.

Aging past our 20’s, we start to lose hearing ability in different frequencies. Although the progression of hearing loss is a very individual process, many people have some degree of hearing loss. Age-related hearing loss affects our ability to perceive higher frequencies which in turn limits our understanding of spoken word content like movies and the beauty in music: harmonics. From thousands of people tested worldwide, Mimi knows how people hear. Compensating for age-related hearing loss through an approximation of the hearing curve based on age and gender is thus also possible. Mimi’s benefit: hearing more clarity and nuances even at lower volumes, creating a lasting pleasant listening experience especially in noisy environments.

Mimi is partnering with Hansair Logistics to introduce this technology at OEMs and Airlines in both embedded and streaming entertainment experiences to the benefit the overall entertainment experience on board.

Philipp Skribanowitz, co-founder and CEO of Mimi Hearing Technologies, states “This is the perfect match. With Mimi inside the inflight entertainment systems we enable people to finally enjoy time for themselves and the entertainment in a most personal way, despite the noisy environment on an aircraft.”

Prakash Patel, President of Hansair Logistics, adds “The Hansair team is extremely excited to partner with Mimi to introduce their groundbreaking sound personalization technology that will dramatically enhance the passenger listening experience!”
