The March issue of Health After 50 featured a good article on affordable hearing choices, including a highlight of our CS50+ product. Read the entire Health After 50 article here.  

Stavros Basseas and David Green decided to do something about the millions of people in the world who need hearing help but have limited funds and no access to services. Here in the US, we have an extensive network of medical and hearing health professionals to address the need for hearing aids plus hearing aid batteries are available at any corner pharmacy. This supply chain just doesn’t exist in emerging nations. But what they typically do have are cell phone towers and at least some access to cell phones. This was a good jumping off point to begin the project. 

I had the honor of representing Sound World Solutions at the Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) 2015 convention June25-June 28, 2015. This year, the convention was held in St. Louis, Missouri at the beautiful Doubletree Union Station hotel, a converted train station built in 1894 when public buildings were truly grand. Sound World Solutions participated with a booth on the exhibit floor where we displayed our product line and interacted with attendees. We attended the HLAA convention in Austin, Texas last year, so there was familiarity with our personal sound amplifiers, but the announcement of the Companion - our first FDA registered hearing aid - resulted in a significant increase in interest and conversation. 

You’ve decided it’s time to act on your hearing loss. Now what do you do?

Sound World Solutions on The Today Show Personal sound amplifiers, such as the CS50 from Sound World Solutions, put more control in the hands of consumers than ever before to enhance hearing. They are incredibly easy to customize and control. With the benefits Bluetooth functionality provides in these personal sound amplifiers, the hearing aid industry has also started to make hearing aids compatible with Apple's iPhone, as well as other smartphones.

CS50 Personal Sound Amplifier in the New York TimesIn Sunday's New York Times Technology Section, Sound World Solutions and our new CS50 Bluetooth personal sound amplifier was covered in Anne Eisenberg's article, Just Don't Call Them Hearing Aids. Below is an excerpt:

"One company in the market, Sound World Solutions, will introduce a second version of its CS10 Bluetooth-enabled sound amplifier and app in April, said Kevin Daniels, director of sales and marketing. The new model, called the CS50 and costing $399, allows wearers to program and control the in-ear amplifier via free apps for Android and iPhone smartphones. Both left- and right-ear versions are available.

"The product looks much like a Bluetooth headset, and not by accident. 'We designed it to look like a Bluetooth device, and not to look like a hearing aid,' Mr. Daniels said. The model lets users set their own auditory profiles, or use one of the preset levels, including one for the clamor of busy restaurants.

"Users can also stream music or audiobooks and make mobile phone calls, Mr. Daniels said. 'Whatever you pair this device to,' he said, 'it will play the audio in the device.' It uses a low-energy form of Bluetooth that lasts up to 15 hours on a single charge, he said."
