OAK BROOK, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Soundwave Hearing today announced the launch of its new hearing aid and mobile app, which are revolutionizing self-fitting hearing aid technology. The Sontro Hearing Aids (Model AI) are wireless, self-programming hearing aids that have been developed to amplify sound for individuals 18 years or older with perceived mild to moderate hearing impairment.
By combining the power of mobile phones and ultramodern AI technology, Soundwave has created a smart hearing aid that is simple, affordable, and convenient.
The state-of-the-art Sontro Hearing Aids connect via Bluetooth® to the otoTune app, which administers a clinically validated hearing test to identify the user’s hearing threshold and listening needs. Once the three-minute test is complete, users can seamlessly adjust volume, frequency tones, and listening modes directly on the otoTune app.
The new Sontro Hearing Aids will be sold directly on www.hearsoundwave.com for $999.00, which is 75% less expensive than most conventional brands. Sontro has been specifically designed to be sold online and eventually Over-the-Counter once FDA’s regulations are finalized.
The Sontro Hearing Aids signal processing includes 16-channel wide dynamic range compression, noise reduction and feedback cancellation, automatic mode selection, and adaptive directionality.
“By taking advantage of the ease and accessibility of the mobile phone in your pocket, we offer cutting-edge and stylish hearing solutions, allowing consumers to set up, customize and adjust their hearing from the comfort and privacy of home,” said Anthony Florek, Co-Founder and President of Soundwave Hearing, LLC. “We are giving access to high-quality hearing technology at an extremely affordable price by eliminating barriers of cost, time, and stigma that continue to affect large populations in need.”

The hearing aids come with a 45-day Risk-Free guarantee, 1-year warranty, and are eligible for FSA and HSA reimbursement.
