Hearing Professionals Talk About SoundBite™
Learn from Hearing Experts about Bone Conduction and SoundBite™.
Dr. Michael Seidman
"The patients so far that have been using SoundBite are very pleased - many of them have tears in their eyes, many of them are smiling.
There's no surgery involved. It's very easy to use. It's very inconspicuous so people don't really have to know that you have it. One of the beautiful parts of this technology is that it's rechargeable. You just plug it in at nighttime and it recharges."
Dr. Brian Moore, PhD
(Professor of Auditory Perception, University of Cambridge, England)
"An advantage of the SoundBite system is that you can get quite high fidelity sound transmission. It's an efficient way of creating a bone vibration signal and it can work over a wide frequency range, so you get a very natural, clear sound quality.
It's important to explain to patients what benefits they are likely to get from a system like SoundBite. People need to be made aware that there are new things like SoundBite that can help them. It can make your life better and that's worth doing."
Joanna Roufos, AuD

"Some patients just do not want to go through surgery. SoundBite brings something new and innovative to the table now because they have a non-invasive, bone conduction option.
The minute we turn SoundBite on, we will whisper in that ear and the patients will just start crying…. because for the first time, in how many years, they are actually hearing on that side. That's very important."
Terry Shaw, AuD

"There are two things about SoundBite that I think are advantageous. It's a non-surgical approach and it's also relatively discreet. Very often patients will wear their device and other people won't even know that they have anything either behind their ear or in their mouth. In terms of discretion, it really works for patients.
It's been pretty easy for patients to get accustomed to wearing both the in-the-mouth device and the behind-the ear device."
