84 V I EWPO I NT Bad audio is bad business J OE DE BOL D : E POS EPOS devices use next-generation technology and artificial intelligence to create optimal listening experiences “Our research and development team continues to use technology to perfect the audio experience” Our research has found that the majority (95 per cent) of today’s modern workers admit that their concentration and efficiency at work has suffered due to sound issues. At EPOS, everything we do is based on deep user insights. We know that bad audio is bad business, and that poor sound quality not only leads to frustration, confusion and wasted time, but also negatively affects your ability to focus and concentrate, and ultimately your overall performance. We have made it our mission to unleash human potential by perfecting audio experiences through a science-based approach to deliver excellent sound that enables you to focus and perform better while spending less energy. EPOS headsets, speakerphones and video bars are built on technology that is designed to support the brain’s natural way of processing sound. This means less fatigue and more focus for both you and the people you are communicating with. Ultimately, it all comes down to understanding how the brain makes sense of sound because a great audio experience only happens when technologies support the brain’s listening process, helping it to perform as intended. We call it EPOS BrainAdapt. We divide our technologies into three subcategories – EPOS AI, EPOS Sound and EPOS Voice – to ensure a clear understanding of our technical spectrum. EPOS AI creates an optimised audio experience that pushes communication further and boosts users’ ability to succeed. The artificial intelligence and machine learning system is embedded in EPOS audio devices and interacts with advanced beamforming and noise reduction algorithms to automatically adapt to speech while studying the sound environment. The technology within EPOS AI then reduces ambient sounds, thus transmitting speech loudly and clearly to the listener. EPOS Sound makes the most of premium audio devices by delivering a natural listening experience. Through continuous monitoring of ambient sound and varying noise levels,
