CUPERTINO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 28, 2014) - Soundhawk® announced today that the company's Smart Listening System™ is now shipping to customers and available for purchase online at Soundhawk.com for $299. Soundhawk is the first product to integrate breakthrough hearing science into an affordable and easy-to-use consumer product.
"Soundhawk was created to help people hear more of what matters most even in the noisiest places. Each of us struggles at times to hear soft speech, over distances or in noisy environments. It can be incredibly frustrating when we are not able to communicate and participate as much as we would like," said Michael Kisch, Soundhawk CEO.
Soundhawk is at the forefront of a new era of technology designed to enhance how we experience our world by helping millions of people hear, communicate and connect in everyday situations.
"Soundhawk isn't fixing what's broken; it's enhancing what already works by giving each person the ability to personalize their listening experience to their unique preferences and environment," said Dr. Andrew Dundas, Chief Scientific Officer at Soundhawk and former Director of Audiology at the University of California, San Francisco.
