In 2011, our founder Marion experienced an 80% reduction of his hearing over 6 months – at the age of just 26.
He consulted a ridiculous number of ear care experts in 5 different countries and purchased the most expensive in-ear tech available to solve the problem, but ultimately realised that socialising in noisy environments has become impossible – even with the best technology.
Hear his story here.
After learning to accept this new normal, Marion investigated the problem and discovered that our cities and social spaces ore simply not designed with Hearing Wellness in mind. And that this affects the wellbeing of more than 60% of the population – from age 16 upwards!
Today, all our team members have on obsessive desire to change the way we interact with social spaces and how we design for Hearing Wellness. Experts, technologists, designers… Marion’s story has become a people story.
The three pillars of
After years of research and discussions with hundreds of experts, we’ve come to the conclusion that hearing wellness depends on three interlinking areas.
By optimising these three elements and having them work together in harmony, we can truly experience the power of Hearing Wellness.
Our mission is to help you enjoy your experience of sound in social spaces, without stress.
Hearing is our social sense. And what we hear affects how we feel and communicate.
Although we know everyone’s sound preferences are different — whether you’re more sensitive or more tolerant – we all deserve to hear and be heard without difficulty.
We picture a world where designing for Hearing Wellness and looking after your ears is just as important as eating healthily, exercising or looking after your mental health.
Our experts in hearing psychology, data and technology drive our research and innovation.
