The SoundBite Breakthrough
Non-Surgical Treatment for Hearing Loss in One Ear

FDA-cleared for the treatment of individuals with Single-Sided Deafness and Conductive Hearing Loss, the SoundBite Hearing System is the world's first non‑surgical and removable bone conduction hearing device to imperceptibly transmit sound via the teeth.

94%

of SoundBite patients would recommend it to a friend or family who had similar hearing loss.

Individuals have chosen SoundBite because:

  • No surgery is required
  • It's nearly invisible and is comfortable as each device is customized for each patient
  • It's safe and clinically proven to improve hearing, even in noise
  • Users can eat, drink, and bite down normally

How SoundBite Works: Effective & Nearly Invisible Hearing Device

The SoundBite Hearing System consists of two components:

Behind-the-Ear (BTE) UnitSmall microphone and transmitter worn on the hearing-impaired ear.

The BTE microphone receives the sound signal and wirelessly transmits it to the customized ITM device. The ITM device converts the sound signal into imperceptible vibrations that travel via the teeth through the bone and to the functioning inner ear.
