Sontro® Hearing Aids win Big Innovation Award 

The Business Intelligence Group named 13 executives, 56 companies and 81 products as leaders and winners of the 2022 BIG Innovation Awards. Soundwave Hearing’s  Sontro®Self-Fitting OTC Hearing Aids were a 2022 winner! 

The Business Intelligence Group was founded with the mission of recognizing true talent and superior performance in the business world. Unlike other industry award programs, these programs are judged by business executives having experience and knowledge. The organization’s proprietary and unique scoring system selectively measures performance across multiple business domains and then rewards those companies whose achievements stand above those of their peers.

What are the Big Innovation Awards?

Business Intelligence Group organizes this annual business awards program recognizing organizations, products, and people that are bringing new ideas to life in innovative ways. 

“Innovation is driving the global economy across virtually all industries,” said Maria Jimenez, chief nominations officer of the Business Intelligence Group. “We are honored to award these executives, companies and products the BIG Innovation award this year. Each has made tremendous strides at improving the lives of their community.”

Organizations from across the globe submitted their recent innovations for consideration in the BIG Innovation Awards. Nominations were judged by a select group of business leaders and executives who volunteered their time and expertise to score submissions.

Why was Soundwave’s Sontro Hearing Aids a winner in the Big Innovation Awards? 

Soundwave Hearing’s new SMART  hearing aid and mobile app are revolutionizing self-fitting hearing aid technology. The Sontro Hearing Aids (Model AI) are wireless, self-programming hearing aids that have been developed to amplify sound for individuals 18 years or older with perceived mild to moderate hearing impairment. 

By combining the power of mobile phones and ultramodern AI technology, Soundwave has created a SMART  hearing aid that is simple, affordable, and convenient.  

The state-of-the-art Sonto Hearing Aids connect via  Bluetooth®  to the otoTune™ app, which administers a clinically validated hearing test to identify the user’s hearing threshold and listening needs. Once the three-minute test is complete, users can seamlessly adjust volume, frequency tones, and listening modes directly on the otoTune app.

Where can I purchase Sontro Self-Fitting OTC Hearing Aids?

The new Sontro Hearing Aids are sold at participating audiology practices and directly on for $999.00, which is 75% less than the average cost of prescription hearing aids. Sontro Hearing Aids have been designed to be sold Over-the-Counter, once the FDA’s regulations are finalized.  

“By taking advantage of the ease and accessibility of the mobile phone in your pocket, we offer cutting-edge and stylish hearing solutions, allowing consumers to set up, customize and adjust their hearing from the comfort and privacy of home,”  said Anthony Florek, Co-Founder and President of Soundwave Hearing, LLC. “We are giving access to high-quality hearing technology at an extremely affordable price by eliminating barriers of cost, time, and stigma that continue to affect large populations in need. ”

What are the Sontro Hearing Aid and otoTune App specifications?

The Sontro Hearing Aids signal processing includes: 16-channel wide dynamic range compression and SMART features: noise reduction, feedback cancellation, automatic mode selection, and adaptive directionality.

The Sontro Hearing Aid package consists of Soundwave Hearing’s proprietary hardware and software design, the otoTune app, and accessories supplied in the box and hearing aid case. The hearing aids come with a 45-day Risk-Free guarantee, 1-year warranty, and are eligible for FSA and HSA reimbursement. 

Does Soundwave have a patent on their technology?

The patented otoTune app functions with a user’s compatible mobile phone. It is available free for download on iOS (version 11.0 or higher) or Android (version 6.0 or higher) based systems.  The otoTune app pairs effortlessly to the Sontro Hearing Aids (Model AI), allowing users to take an audiogram-quality hearing test to program the hearing aids for appropriate amplification. Users can customize their hearing aids using the mobile app to best navigate their hearing needs based on environmental and circumstantial factors.
