The Analog Hearing Aid Company

The Analog Hearing Aid Company

At Analog Hearing Labs, we pride ourselves on being “The Analog Hearing Aid Company.”

What that means is a singular focus on bringing clean, clear, pure analog amplification back to the hearing aid industry.

Why was analog abandoned? It has to do with the fact digital amplification is simpler to manufacture and enables the use of cheaper components with acceptable results.

The results are often passable – but are often felt lacking by those with discerning hearing.

By contrast, achieving good analog amplification requires the use of high-quality audio components, precision manufacturing, rigorous quality control, and attention to achieving the best fit.

Microphones pick up the sound, and speakers (often called receivers in the hearing aid industry), deliver the sound into your ear. At Analog Sound Labs, we source only the highest medical-grade components from top suppliers like Sonion and Knowles.

Unfortunately, many digital hearing aids on the market today – don’t even use audiology-grade transducers (microphones and receivers). We have even observed some online sellers sourcing from the bottom of the consumer products parts bin (Like the speaker in a musical greeting card).

Achieving the Best Fit Achieving the Best Fit

A hearing aid can produce the best sound in the world – but if it doesn’t deliver it to your ears, it is all for naught. For years we have been puzzled why most hearing aids are delivered with a round dome (the part that goes in your ear).

Ears are as different as the people they are attached to. And every audiologist knows that ear canals are not round; the right and left are certainly not identical. In fact, the shape of the ear canals can change over the course of the day. Basic round domes are vulnerable to sound leakage, which can cause feedback and a poor listening experience.

The patented Aeri Tips provided by AnalogHearingAids.com are actually for real users. Their high-quality thermoplastic silicone material achieves a more comfortable, longer-lasting fit. They are tapered like human ear canals and can flexibly deform, providing an effective seal and all-day comfort.

Precision Manufacturing Precision Manufacturing

All of our manufacturing is done under ISO 13485, in accordance with US and EU quality standards. Our proprietary linear amplification circuit is designed and manufactured to the highest standards, using automated manufacturing technology usually not seen in low-volume segments like hearing aids.

Quality Control Quality Control

Every single hearing aid is tested at our US facility, by trained human ears. Why because in analog amplification, even subtle differences, like the size of a solder droplet, can affect the quality of sound produced – and there is no better testing device than an actual human’s ear.
