OAK BROOK, ILLINOISSoundwave Hearing has announced the launch of its new hearing aid and mobile app, which aim to revolutionize 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”.

Soundwave Hearing is looking to partner with audiology practices throughout the country. The Sontro Hearing Aid is a “starter” hearing aid that retails for $999.00 and has been specifically designed to capture Tested and Not Treated patients.

“We hope to help the audiology community provide high-quality hearing technology to as many people as possible. This technology allows hearing aid practitioners to keep patients in their service population as their hearing loss progresses.”

–Anthony Florek, Co-Founder and President of Soundwave Hearing.


Addressing “Tested and Not Treated” Patients 


According to the company, “Tested and Not Treated” (TNT) patients constitute approximately 40% of the overall patient population, drain practice owners of valuable resources, and add considerable operational costs.  

  • Sontro Hearing Aids are designed to provide an opportunity to engage and retain first-time hearing device users, “which will increase top-line revenue and strengthen the long-term economic value of the practice”. 
  • Retaining a patient “within the scope of the practice allows practitioners to continually service and monitor their hearing loss”.  
  • When patients fall outside the parameters of mild to moderate hearing loss, practitioners “can upgrade them to a hearing aid technology that better suits their needs”.  


Providing an opportunity for practice growth


A Soundwave Partnership “helps you build a successful practice, and a successful practice means helping more patients along the path to better hearing.”

 According to the company:

  • Sontro Hearing Aids are easy to fit, simple to set up, and provide an essential entry-level product to begin your patient’s journey to healthy hearing. 
  • A partnership will help minimize your cash flow gaps and increase your treated patient population. 
  • Affordable and powered by the otoTune app, they place hearing control in the hands of your patients.
