Over The Counter Hearing Aids is a new category of hearing aids for people with perceived mild to moderate hearing loss over 18 years old. This category will allow consumers to purchase hearing aids at retailers and pharmacies without a prescription from a hearing care professional.
Although Over The Counter Hearing Aids are not yet available in the marketplace, on October 20, 2021, according to the FDA website “The agency proposed a rule to establish a new category of over-the-counter (OTC) hearing aids. When finalized, the rule would allow hearing aids within this category to be sold directly to consumers in stores or online without a medical exam or a fitting by an audiologist.”
In preparation for this new OTC category, Soundwave designed Sontro Hearing Aids to be self-fitting, using AI-driven technology to intelligently identify where your hearing needs improving the most. They are small, comfortable, and designed to hide behind your ear. In addition, Sontro Hearing Aids are Bluetooth enabled, and FDA registered. Soundwave offers a risk-free 45-day money-back guarantee, free shipping, returns, and support.
