Eargo + Songs for Sound = Music to Our Ears

At Eargo, our mission from day one has been to make hearing easy. So when we met our friends at Songs for Sound—a nonprofit working to increase access to quality hearing healthcare and opportunities for those with hearing loss and deafness—we knew we had found our perfect match.

Eargo is proud to partner with Songs for Sound for their upcoming Hearoes Tour, which kicks off this month and runs through June 2020. The year-long tour will spread awareness of hearing loss and encourage the millions suffering to take the necessary steps toward better hearing health.

Get a Hearing Aid, Give a Hearing Aid

In celebration of the partnership and our shared mission to help everyone hear life to the fullest, Eargo will donate an Eargo Plus or an Eargo Max to Songs for Sound with every purchase of an Eargo Neo device. Simply use code SONGS at checkout now through August 31, 2019. 

But the giving won’t end there. After August 31, Eargo will still donate an Eargo Plus or an Eargo Max when anyone who visits the Songs for Sound booth at the Hearoes Tour purchases an Eargo Neo device. And trust us—giving back never sounded so good. 

The Songs for Sound Story

Songs for Sound was founded in 2011 after founder and executive director Jaime Vernon’s daughter, Lexi, was diagnosed with profound, bilateral, sensorineural hearing loss. At 11 months old, Lexi was at risk of developing cognitive impairments commonly linked to long-term social, emotional, behavioral, and academic problems in adolescents.

Distraught by the news of their daughter’s diagnosis, Lexi’s parents were determined to find a solution and, finally, after living in a soundless world for nearly two years, Lexi’s ears were activated with cochlear implants. 

 

Unlike thousands of children and adults who suffer from untreated hearing loss, Lexi was fortunate to have parents who sought the proper care and acted immediately on her behalf. And now, their mission is to make sure everyone has access to the same quality of care they fought to get for Lexi.

The Hearoes Tour

The Hearoes Tour will reach those at high risk of developing hearing loss, while simultaneously educating the general public on the early signs, health risks, and solutions associated with hearing loss. The tour will provide access to state-of-the-art screening technology, product demos, checklists to navigate the hearing loss journey, and more. 

To date, Songs for Sound has provided more than 20,000 free hearing screenings and served more than 1,200 veterans. More than 48 million Americans currently experience hearing loss, but only 20% get help. We want to change that, so we’re hitting the road with Songs for Sound to help people across the country hear life to the fullest without compromising their lifestyle, appearance, or budget.

    I have three comments in regarding two my parents
    and myself.
    (1) My father is a World War ll Vet and sustained some damage to his ears due to the Battles . He was a Medic in Normandy , Battle of the Bulge, and a few others.
    Currently he has some Hearing aids from the VA.
    Which do not work very well and they squeal through out the day . He is 95 years old and has problem hearing people and the TV. He gets around using a
    Walker. He can carry on a conversation but has problems hearing . I have noticed him having problems installing and removing his batteries. Sometimes I wonder if he even has batteries in his hearing aids. Is there any help for him? The VA only gives him not current technology in hearing aids. You sure can see his hearing aids.

    (2) my mother is 93 years old has problems in hearing our conversation and we are having to
    repeat our conversation over the phone to her.
    I believe she had hearing loss due to some type of measles when she was young. Every so often she has to go to the Doctor and have the wax build up in one of her ears . She doesn’t hear that great with her other ear. As she is getting older she is begging to have problems installing the batteries.
    (3) The problem I feel I would have is misplacing or loosing those small hearing aids.(A) Is there a way that those hearing aids can be found by using a smart phone to find them. (B) I noticed that you tap your ear twice to change the hearing program. Is this more effective than adjusting the sound by using a smart phone to cover each individual parameters?
    I can understand for elderly people after 75 or 80 years old. But us who are younger might want to be more specific in our adjustments for low , mid, and high pitch sounds. Can you adjust the levels individually by tapping your hearing aid ?
    Know two people will hear the or process sounds the same way.

    I love the idea of rechargeable hearing aids. How many days or hours will hearing aids will last with one full charge? Our hearing is so vital in every day
    Life.

    Thanks for your help.

      I am 77 years old on SS and that is my only income. I can’t afford any other costs. Can you help?

      • We are committed to making hearing health technology more affordable, which is why we offer financing options from $77 a month. We also suggest clients check with their insurance provider to see if their plan offers any coverage for hearing aids (if it does, our audiologists are happy to complete a superbill on their behalf). Some organizations that may be able to provide additional assistance obtaining hearing aids are your local Lions Club, United Way Speech and Hearing Centers, as well as Better Hearing Institute’s AUDIENT program. We often point clients here if we’re unable to help. Our hearing guides are all ears at 1-800-734-7603 should you have any questions about our comfortable, invisible devices or how we can help point you in the direction of a hearing aid that meets your needs. 👂

  4. I do not have nerve deafness. I have otoscholrosis. I know it’s not spelled correctly but you’ll know what I mean. I purchased the Amp hearing devices several years ago but unfortunately only used a few times and can only use around a few people, not a crowd. Also I can hear fine on the phone so can not use while on the phone.
    Please advise. Thanks
