Fennex – Augmented Hearing App
by: FENNEX AG • 274
Fennex is a helpful and innovative hearing aid app that is designed to help people improve their hearing whenever they feel they might need it. The app lets you take a test in order to establish your abilities or you can simply start using it if you already know you might find it useful in certain situations.
How does it work? The results with Fennex are experienced immediately. It can be scary, even. Suddenly, you can listen to everything clearly and you won't miss a thing. The app lets you customize the experience by balancing left and right, selecting compression, hi frequency presence, low frequency limit and changing equalizer values.
The app is incredibly useful and works really well, it can really make a difference. Plus, the design is accessible and minimalist, making it intuitive enough so you know how to use Fennex in a couple of minutes. The fact that the app doesn't only amplify the sound but also lets you personalize the settings, makes it even better, given that not everyone will have the same hearing issues.
We've taken similar tests via other application and they felt more reliable and there was a long pause during the test, which we found rather confusing. However, the hearing aid functionality is simply amazing and we can't recommend this app enough.

"I just got this app yesterday, and it is WONDERFUL! It allows me to keep the TV’s sound at a normal level for my family while still allowing me to hear every word. I no longer miss half the show, and my family isn’t deafened by a TV that’s too loud. Thank you!" – Michelle L.
"Thank you very much! Your app has truly helped change the quality of my life for the better. Last time I bought hearing aids I spent $5000 dollars and here a few years later they are no longer working but your app has given me the opportunity to hear without having to spend a fortune and I am very grateful" – Casey H.
"This app works well and provides a very good amplified sound, with lots of adjustments. It is way better than any of the other free apps and two purchased apps that I have used to help with hearing" – R.S.
