Company Summary

Ear Machine’s core competency and intellectual property is in the science that reduces hundreds of hearing aid parameters into two unidimensional controllers. When users manipulate the controllers, a hearing-science based algorithm allows them to optimize their hearing quickly and easily with a smartphone. We partner with smartphone OS developers and audio hardware manufacturers (consumer and hearing health) to make good hearing more accessible.
