Our Mission

To transform the hearing experience so that people with hearing loss can enjoy life’s experiences and moments without worrying about their hearing.

About us

Earlens sign

Earlens is a privately held medical technology company committed to transforming the hearing experience for millions of people who suffer from hearing loss. The company has developed the Earlens® Contact Hearing Solution, which directly vibrates the eardrum with a tiny lens in order to activate the natural hearing process. This revolutionary, nonsurgical hearing solution delivers the broadest bandwidth available today and superior sound quality. The Earlens® Contact Hearing Solution received FDA clearance in 2019 for a second generation of the Earlens technology.

We believe that people with hearing loss shouldn’t have to think about their hearing in everyday situations. Earlens was designed specifically to address the sound quality and speech understanding complaints that are common among hearing aid wearers and contribute to non-compliance. We make every Earlens device custom-fit for each patient’s unique anatomy and hearing needs, while offering modern features such as Bluetooth streaming.
