The Hearing Aid Company with Superior Technology ... and Heart.
Sam Thomasson describes the day his daughter Kate was born as the happiest of his life. When Kate was a toddler she lost most of her hearing due to a sudden illness. Through the years, it became clear that the costly traditional aids that were fitted for Kate were ineffective, causing discomfort as well as affecting her speech development. Sam decided that something had to be done to improve Kate’s life. An accomplished electrical engineer who worked on products from computer chips to pace makers, Sam began poring over design specifications of the leading hearing aids. He installed an electronics lab in their home and worked nights and weekends – with Kate often at his side – to develop hearing aids that would solve issues like feedback, background noise and poor sound quality. When Kate was sixteen, she put on the first Zounds ® prototype, which immediately transformed her life. She could finally hear high pitch sounds, enjoy music and speak more clearly. Ultimately, Sam and his team of dedicated engineers amassed 52 ground-breaking patents with state of the art technology that can only be found in Zounds ® hearing aids.
