“I want to keep my life simple. And my hearing as well."

How Does ADHEAR Work?
ADHEAR is designed for people with conductive hearing loss. With this type of hearing loss, the outer or middle ear is damaged, which stops sounds from reaching the inner ear. But ADHEAR lets you hear without using your outer and middle ears. Instead, ADHEAR gently vibrates the bone behind your ear to send sound directly to your inner ear, giving you natural sound quality.
In addition, ADHEAR can also be used as a solution for single-sided deafness, to send sound from your non-hearing side round to your “good side”.
Each ADHEAR system has two parts: the adhesive adapter and the audio processor. The thin adhesive adapter sticks to the skin just behind your ear, where you don’t have any hair. The audio processor clicks onto this adapter. Its microphones pick up the sounds around you, and then it vibrates the adapter to send these sounds to your inner ear. Both parts of ADHEAR are discreet to wear, and can be easily hidden under your hair.

Unlike some bone conduction devices, you don’t need any surgery before using ADHEAR. You can simply stick on ADHEAR and start hearing immediately. This also means that you can try out ADHEAR, and be sure it is the right hearing device for you before making a long-term commitment.
Get in touch today with a hearing professional in your area, and try out ADHEAR for yourself.
ADHEAR uses the latest bone conduction technology to bring you the best hearing possible. It works the same way as other passive bone conduction devices, but without putting any pressure on your skin.
And with directional microphones, feedback cancellation, and background noise reduction, ADHEAR lets you focus in on the sounds that matter most.

Don’t interrupt your hearing. ADHEAR's extensive battery life means you can enjoy great hearing for up to two weeks at a time.
Changing the battery is quick and easy to do, and with only one battery to change each time, ADHEAR is cost efficient too!
