What Can a Personal Sound Amplifier Do for You?
Education and Advocacy There aren’t many options for those with mild to moderate hearing loss, and the SuperEar – a personal sound amplifier – can be the perfect introduction to hearing instruments.
It’s estimated that 10 percent of Canadians live with some form of hearing loss. This is a significant social and health issue, as people with hearing loss can experience social isolation, mental degeneration, and depression. For those with mild to moderate hearing loss, there aren’t a lot of options, which is why the SuperEar® — a personal sound amplifier — can be the perfect introduction to hearing instruments.

“A lot of people don’t need a hearing aid, but they still need some form of assistance and that’s where our device can help,” says Will Robertson, CEO of Sonic Technology Products. “Think of the SuperEar® as reading glasses for your ears. Not everyone with vision loss needs expensive prescription glasses; in the same way, not everyone with hearing loss needs expensive hearing aids. Our device is affordable, accessible, and easy to use.”
Improving health outcomes
It’s for these reasons that the SuperEar® has been used by prominent hospital systems for years. By giving a personal sound amplifier to patients who report some hearing loss, hospitals are able to dramatically improve their quality of care. Use of the SuperEar® in healthcare settings improves a wide variety of outcomes, including decreased re-admission because patients are finally able to properly hear the instructions of their care team.
“Hearing loss is a significant health issue that often goes overlooked,” says Robertson. “Personal sound amplifiers can help address this and improve one’s overall quality of life.”
