My name is Steve Eagon and I’m an audiologist and Head of Sales Development at Eargo. First, Eargo is a “real hearing aid.” Our Neo HiFi and other devices are class 1 medical devices regulated by the FDA and not an OTC or PSAP. Our digital processor and performance characteristics compete and even surpass some of the Big 5 manufacturers. We design our own algorithms based on decades of research at the National Acoustic Labs and our own clinical research to achieve great success for our clients. Our noise reduction processing and feedback manager is quite sophisticated.
Eargo also provides an app for clients to make changes to the listening programs and also basic sound adjustments. If further modifications are warranted, our team of licensed hearing professionals can send frequency response changes via a web app to a person’s smart phone which is connected via Bluetooth to their charger.
As predictable as age-related and noise induced hearing loss is for adults, Eargo hearing aids quite successfully fit mild to moderately-severe high frequency hearing loss. Eargo Neo HiFi has extended frequency bandwidth with our latest generation DSP.
