Offering New Hearing Products and Free Hearing Aids to the Economically Disadvantaged

SAN LEANDRO, Calif., Feb. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- iHear Medical announced today the launch of the Hearing For All campaign on the Indiegogo website.

With pricing for 100% digital hearing aids starting at $199 per device, the company brings the cost of advanced hearing aids in line with prescription eyeglasses.

iHear Medical is a medical device startup dedicated to developing technologically advanced hearing solutions, delivered directly to consumers online at a fraction of the cost of traditional hearing aids. In the US alone, there are over 40 million Americans who suffer from hearing loss, and while the vast majority can be successfully treated with a hearing device, only 22% currently use them. "The iHear device and our proprietary online tools offer consumers not only huge cost savings, but also control over the fitting process from the convenience of their home," stated Adnan Shennib, Founder & CEO of iHear Medical. iHear is targeting tech savvy consumers who want sensible pricing and desire to retain an active lifestyle with a hearing device worn invisibly inside the ear. iHear Medical has committed to delivering 1,000 hearing devices, free of charge, in collaboration with Hearing For All and hearing advocacy groups.

About Hearing For All

Hearing For All is a non-profit organization founded by Silicon Valley entrepreneurs to provide hearing solutions to economically disadvantaged individuals, and to address hearing loss as a global problem with epidemic proportions. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates 5% of the world's population, or approximately 360 million people, suffer from disabling hearing loss. After spending decades in the hearing aid industry, the founding entrepreneurs realized that most individuals cannot afford the extremely high cost of hearing products currently on the market.  Hearing for All is also dedicated to connecting industry leaders, visionaries, health care providers, and charity organizations to implement its mission of helping people with hearing loss, regardless of their economic status.

About iHear Medical

iHear Medical is a venture-backed firm dedicated to addressing the global need for affordable and accessible hearing solutions. The company was founded by Adnan Shennib who started and led the development of several Silicon Valley firms, including InSound Medical. iHear Medical's new products and business models are intended to break through persisting barriers that prevent people with hearing loss from acquiring and using hearing aids. These barriers include high cost, complex dispensing procedures, and the stigma of traditional hearing aids worn visibly behind the ear.  iHear Medical is pioneering web-enabled hearing solutions with over 18 US and international patents issued and pending in its intellectual property portfolio.
