Your ears collect sound, but it is your brain that understands it. Good hearing and sound experiences help your brain stay fit throughout your life. When you suffer from hearing loss it makes the barrier to interact with the world around you greater and your connection with people diminishes - increasing the risk of health and social problems such as cognitive decline and dementia.

Often, hearing loss happens gradually, and you will not necessarily notice it. But there are signs that could be an indication.

For some, the struggle with hearing comes early in life and for some later. Regardless of age and severity of hearing loss, we offer hearing care and treatment, and the important diagnostic and service solutions it requires. We develop innovative hearing aids and hearing implants technology, and from this platform we have also taken news steps into the broader area of premium audio and video solutions.

5 signs that you could have a hearing loss:

  • Do you often have to turn up the volume on your TV, radio or phone? Do others comment that you have these devices on too loud?
  • Do friends, family members and colleagues complain that they must repeat what they say to you?
  • Do you struggle to focus on people speaking at work, school or social events? Or do you find conversations in restaurants or crowded places difficult?
  • Do you have to look at people’s face or lips to be able to understand what they are saying?
  • Have you noticed that everyday sounds, such as birds tweeting, footsteps, crickets or the clock ticking are gone or less noticeable?

Today, 1 in 5 people worldwide live with hearing loss*. We strive to offer solutions that can help people on a personal, professional and social level. Because the proper treatment for hearing loss is the key to remaining cognitive and socially active.

We have a long tradition for meeting people with hearing loss, and our experience, research and input from users make us able to introduce new technology and services aimed at treating all types of hearing loss for different kinds of people.
