Mental training of a different kind. Based on years of sound therapy research, Forbrain can improve:
Speech: Speaking into the mic, you'll hear your voice very clearly, slightly modified by the filter which will highlight high frequencies. "Bright sounds": Hearing your improved voice will naturally enhance your speech to become more resonant and harmonious.
Attention and memory: The unexpected contrasts in the voice keep the brain in constant alert and increase your attention level. Bone-conduction facilitates your ability to retain the message. Even children from the age of 3 can already train their memory and language with the Forbrain.
For what is Forbrain useful?
Forbrain enhances specific patterns of your voice, delivering your voice directly via bone structure
Our ability to sustain attention depends on the general state of alertness and vigilance enabling the nervous system to be receptive to all forms of incoming information. However, to function optimally the brain requires stimuli, and the majority of these are received via the ear. Forbrain® works on this state of cortical alertness by favouring the transmission of the higher frequencies of the voice which have an extremely important energizing function.
The dynamic filter also creates variations in voice intensity and resonance, the effect of which is to continually surprise the brain, thus keeping it in a state of alertness. The purpose of this is to help strengthen these automatic mechanisms of change-detection and adjustment, thus enhancing our attention level.

Speech is characterized by a complex chain of articulated sounds which are arranged in a very specific rhythmic pattern. This rhythm is based on the amplitude and the duration of the emitted sounds and on the emphasis given to each. Speech depends on our ability to consciously generate these sounds. Managing this requires a continual adjustment between the sounds we give out and what our ear perceives mainly via bone conduction.
This is known as phonological awareness. By amplifying the fundamental sounds of spoken language and favouring their perception via bone conduction, Forbrain® facilitates our
ability to speak and communicate fluently.
Memory plays an essential role in all learning processes, beginning with reading. It is mainly our short-term memory, also known as phonological memory, which enables us to store verbal information for rapid analysis. It is the verbal memory that we use when reading a text, and which enables us to make sense of the text and to structure it with punctuation and rhythm. It is also what enables us to hold a conversation and follow a line of reasoning. Verbal memory is linked to awareness of articulation in speech, in other words, to the level of attention focused on the message given out and received. The Forbrain® filter highlights the rhythm of speech, and bone conduction facilitates its integration, thus enhancing our ability to retain the message.

How it works
Forbrain® functions as an audio-vocal workout. The moment you speak, this unique device corrects the sound of your voice via a dynamic filter.
The sounds are immediately transmitted back to you by bone conduction, that is, by vibration through the bones situated in front of the ears. You won`t hear any echo, but you will hear your voice differently.
When you speak using Forbrain®, your voice is immediately transmitted back to you by bone conduction. This involves the transmission of sound by vibration through contact with the bones situated in front of the ear. This type of transmission is 10 times faster than air transmission and of far better quality. It is the most natural way to hear yourself. Bone conduction therefore enables you to hear your voice in a very clear and natural way.
By using Forbrain® you will perceive your own voice filtered and modulated by a frequency-modifying filter. This filter is dynamic, meaning it continually activates and de-activates depending on the sounds you are uttering. It is programmed to amplify high frequencies and soften low frequencies, and is triggered by the initial articulation of words and by the pronunciation of long vowels. It highlights the so-called ‘bright sounds’ which play a very significant role in language development. This extremely sensitive dynamic filter enables you to hear your corrected voice. Consequently, your speech will be improved spontaneously and without conscious effort, and your voice will become more rhythmic, more resonant and more harmonious.
Auditory feedback loop
Forbrain corrects the way you hear your own voice leading to better speech production and increased confidence.
These benefits can be achieved with the Forbrain during workouts with only 20 minutes a day for 6 weeks
Speaker Type - dual suspension bone conduction
Sensitivity - 100 ± 3 dB
Microphone type - back electret condenser
Sensitivity - -60 dB ± 3 dB
Playback time - up to 6 hours
Charging time - around 3 hours (with USB cable)
Weight - 50 g
Color - black with blue transducer pads
Carton size - 190 x 165 x 63 mm
Bone conduction headphone
Very sensitive microphone
Dynamic filter to create a perceptive contrast
The voice is simultaneously picked up by the microphone, processed by the dynamic filter in order to induce a perceptive contrast and transmitted by bone conduction on each side of the temporal bone.
How to wear it
Place the wraparound head band behind your neck with the transducers resting on the bone in front of your ears, not on your ears! The microphone should be placed in front of your mouth with a minimum distance of 3 cm (1,2 inches). Don`t put the microphone too close to your mouth, it could create some feedback!!
How to charge it
Connect Forbrain to a standard USB port on your PC or a wall charger via the USB charging cable. Forbrain will fully charge in 3 hours. The LED Indicator will show solid red when charging and will turn solid blue when charging is completed.
Solid Blue - normal working mode
Blue light goes out and power off - battery too low
Solid Red - headphone is being charged
Red light goes out - charging completed
Here are the most frequently asked questions regarding Forbrain
Is Forbrain the right tool for me?
Certainly. Forbrain is suitable from 3 years old to adult (with some exceptions – please see details in this section). The voice and the ear plays an important role in our ability to communicate. Forbrain is used in a personal developmental approach (public speaking, improvement of the spoken and singing voice) and also as a therapeutic approach to help people with more severe disorders.
What are the improvements that I can expect by using Forbrain?
Your progress will be dependent on several factors, such as, your particular difficulty, your demographic (sex, age, etc.) and your use of Forbrain.
There are two main benefits to Forbrain:
The first benefit is immediate. Since Forbrain changes your perception, you are able to adjust your voice naturally and instantly. This adjustment will help better integrate the information that you receive while using the headset.
The second benefit will be in the medium term. Forbrain is used like any teaching and pedagogical tool. The goal is not to replace, or compensate, the natural process of how your brain listens and produces sounds (auditory feedback) but rather to teach your brain to fully use the process.
How long does it take to use the Forbrain?
1-5 years: 5-10 min
6-14 years: 10-15 min
From 14 years: 15-20 min
Are there any contraindications?
Forbrain is a painless and noninvasive sensory stimulation apparatus. Like any stimulation, Forbrain can excite and tire the user during the sessions. Forbrain is not suitable for:
Children under 3 years
For people with Parkinson's disease
People with hearing loss in both ears of 80%
People carrying a cochlear implant
People with epilepsy (except on advice of a specialist)
Is Forbrain a certified device?
Forbrain has received the following certifications amongst others: FCC, and UN38.3. Therefore, it is officially approved to be commercialized.
