The Earlens Device

How it works

Audibility without compromise

The Earlens Hearing Aid uniquely delivers high gain margins across the 125-10,000 Hz range without having to occlude the ear. See how the system works:

 

The product features

The Earlens Light-Driven Hearing Aid

The Tympanic Lens

The Tympanic lens directly vibrates the eardrum delivering a high level of gain from 125-10,000 Hz.

The Earlens Light Tip

The widely vented Light Tip introduces light, not amplified sound, into the ear canal limiting feedback.

The Earlens Control App

The Earlens Control App allows patients to control their hearing aids, stream music and calls, and troubleshoot all from their iPhone.

Getting fitted

The Process

Earlens involves both an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) physician and an Audiologist. This multidisiplinary team ensures clients receive the best hearing healthcare possible.

 

Earlens is fit in two appointments. During the first appointment, the ENT Physician examines the ear to determine candidacy. Next, the physician takes a deep canal impression. The impression takes about 15 minutes and is performed in the office without anesthesia.

 

The Earlens Hearing Aid builds the customized devices and ships them to the physician’s office. The ENT places the Lens on the eardrum in a quick appointment performed without anesthesia. After the Lens is placed, the Hearing Professional will program the Processor(s) to the patient’s unique hearing loss and needs.

Richer, fuller sound

The Earlens Difference

The primary goal of a hearing aid is to increase audibility. However, basic physics limits the performance of acoustic hearing aids in 3 important ways:

  • High frequency audibility: The physics of a small receiver limits the output in the high frequencies.
  • Low frequency audibility: Open canal devices allow leakage of low-frequency amplification, forcing hearing professionals to choose between comfort and audibility.
  • Gain before feedback: Even with the most advanced feedback cancellation algorithm, there is a fundamental limitation to how much gain a conventional acoustic hearing aid can deliver before the device begins to experience feedback.

The Earlens Hearing Aid overcomes these limitations, delivering audible gain from 125-10,000Hz without having to occlude the ear. In a recent study by an independent lab, Earlens outperformed conventional hearing aids at delivering both High and Low Frequency Audibility.* Hear the difference.
