All good ideas spring from a problem and a bit of insight. In our case, the problem is the enormous gap between all those who need hearing care around the world and those that are actually receiving care. There are somewhere between 600 million and 1 billion people that need help with their hearing, depending on the degree of hearing loss. Contrast that need with the fact that the traditional hearing aid industry is selling only 10 million products per year.
We started Sound World Solutions to change that equation.
To accomplish what we set out to achieve, we needed to approach the problem from a fundamentally different perspective. We attacked the problem at the highest level, re-envisioning not just the product itself, but also the entire method for how individuals have their hearing screened and then get fit with hearing products.
The result is an innovative new approach that allows an individual to screen their hearing, easily fit the product for greatest comfort, and instantly program the product to their desired preferences. All done with nothing more than a Bluetooth connection to a smartphone or tablet, anywhere in the world.
At Home & Abroad
We have also chosen to pursue a different path to you, the customer. In the U.S., we sell direct to you via the internet, allowing us to provide state of the art products at a fraction of the price for traditional solutions.
In developing markets, we partner with on-the-ground social enterprise organizations that provide health care services and work with them to extend their service offering to include hearing care. All at a price that is sustainable for the local market, and backed by organizations that are, and will always be, local to the people being served.
Don't Just Take Our Word for It
All of which is a remarkably different approach. One that we believe will make a difference. But don't just take our word for it, take a look at those with whom we are working and who believe we are indeed on the right path and doing the right things.
