The HearTomorrow‚ Audio of Hearing Workshop‚ will explore hearing physiology, disorders and conservation in the context of audio systems theory.   Attendees will gain not only a new perspective on the hearing mechanism, but also an understanding of audio systems. The ear IS and audio system and we use modern audio technology in the development of hearing assist and conservation products.
