– More than 650 million people have some sort of hearing impairment, but only one out of forty has any sort of treatment. While most of the thirty-nine out of forty have access to smartphones – and could immediately hear better. Starting with an intuitive and very accurate hearing test app was our first step to empower people to understand if they have a problem at all. And then offer better hearing with our new app Mimi Music – says Henrik Matthies, Co-Founder.

Mimi’s sound personalization technology was developed by a team of forty in-house specialists working in close cooperation with Charité – Berlin University of Medicine, one of the largest university hospitals in Europe. The Mimi Hearing Test is a medical product in Europe (CE, class 1).
