Sound Health Services is proud to announce that they are now a provider of the Earlens® Contact Hearing Solution, the world’s first and only non-surgical hearing solution to directly vibrate the eardrum. Earlens delivers more than 2x the bandwidth/pitch range of conventional or traditional hearing aids providing more complete sound, natural sound, improved clarity and better hearing in noisy situations. With Earlens, a processor worn behind the ear sends an audio signal through the ear tip to a custom lens that rests next to the eardrum. When the signal is received by the custom lens, it gently vibrates the eardrum to activate the ear’s natural hearing system.
Dr. James Hartman, otolaryngologist with Town & Country ENT, a division of Sound Health Services says “this technology is a transformative hearing product. Earlens was named a top 100 Invention for 2020 by TIME Magazine. For that reason, we are excited to add this new system to our clinic offerings. With a simple hearing test and evaluation, our team of professionals can help guide patients to hearing solutions that fit their needs.”
Norman Druck MD of St. Louis says, “I tried conventional hearing aids for years and they helped me, but Earlens has really made a difference. I hear such a breadth of sounds now. It was an easy process and I highly recommend it. Earlens is a great product.”
