ADHEAR is gentle

ADHEAR is the only non-surgical bone conduction device which does not apply pressure onto the skin and is therefore very comfortable to wear.

The sound waves are transmitted onto the bone via the adhesive adapter which is placed on the skin behind the ear.

The adhesive adapter is very light and is hardly noticed. Find out more about how ADHEAR works by watching the video.

How ADHEAR works

ADHEAR is reliable

ADHEAR delivers clear hearing benefit. Tests have shown that the performance of this new bone conduction system is comparable or even better than that of other passive bone conduction devices.

This unique system sees the adhesive adapter staying securely in place. This allows you to enjoy a continual hearing experience without interruption due to the system staying in its optimal position. In addition, the close proximity to the inner ear also helps so sound information can be transferred efficiently.

ADHEAR is cosmetically appealing

You can wear the hearing system inconspicuously behind your ear. However, if you wish to show the world your new hearing system, why not customise your audio processor with a choice of design stickers and colourful sleeves. Turn it into a real eye-catcher, by mixing and matching your accessories.
