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.
