About Hearing Loss

Patient Stories Am I a Candidate?

Hearing Loss affects millions of people every year. Some people are born with hearing loss, others gradually lose hearing as they age, and others lose hearing due to trauma, infections, noise exposure, tumors, and other factors. If you are one of the millions of people with hearing loss, you no longer have to suffer in silence. Depending on your hearing loss situation, the SoundBite Hearing System may be the ideal solution for you. SoundBite is designed for people with Single-Sided Deafness or Conductive Hearing Loss.

What is Single-Sided Deafness?

Also called sensorineural hearing loss, Single-Sided Deafness (SSD) occurs when there is a problem with the structure or function of the inner ear or auditory nerve. SDD is permanent and not reversible, but can be managed with the help of hearing devices like SoundBite.

What is Conductive Hearing Loss?

Conductive Hearing Loss (CHL) results from problems in the middle or outer ear. CHL includes any condition that prevents sound from reaching the eardrum or prevents the eardrum or middle ear bones from vibrating correctly. In some cases CHL can be treated medically or surgically, but for many patients a hearing device like SoundBite is the ideal solution.

If you suffer from Single-Sided Deafness or Conductive Hearing Loss, SoundBite may be the ideal choice for you. Hear what other patients are saying, or find out if you are a candidate for the SoundBite Hearing System.
