"Eargo is a game changer.  From the beginning, this is what I hoped Eargo would be. I am proud of the team and everyone's contribution into improving the lives of those with hearing challenges. Their passion and drive have turned a simple epiphany into an industry changing reality." - Dr. Florent Michel, ENT Surgeon & Eargo Inventor.

“Eargo for me started with a desire and plan to truly change the dialog of hearing loss.  Along with my co-founders, Florent and Raphael, we started by reexamining, rethinking, and reinventing every aspect of hearing health from the product to the service.  In everything we did, we were focused on making the experience for the customer more simple, effective, and enjoyable.  Starting a company is long and often difficult journey, but that was overshadowed by the first time we heard from the users how the Eargo devices changed their lives and also how effortlessly they fit into their lives.  It’s been an honor to welcome a team of great people who are united in our mission to change the way people hear better.  I see the dedication of those working at Eargo to continue to improve on every aspect of what we do.  It’s a dedication that’s grounded and enforced with every customer who let’s us know how we’ve changed their lives for the better.- Daniel Shen, Founder, Chief Clinical and Science Officer

“I started Eargo in my garage in Palo Alto, California, with my father Dr. Florent Michel and my friend Daniel Shen with the vision to consumerize hearing health and to empower the millions of people with hearing loss to take control of their hearing. We wanted to create a hearing device that people would actually want to wear, something simple, invisible, natural sounding, and affordable. At the time, all we had was a dream and a clunky prototype with Flexi Fibers built in my father's kitchen sink. Seven years later, it is amazing to see how this dream has become a reality. Thanks to the incredible Eargo team and our investment partners, we have created a consumer-centric company that offers beautifully designed hearing devices delivered directly to your home, combined with personalized remote support from our licensed hearing professionals, all for half the price of traditional hearing aids. At Eargo, everything we do centers around the user. There is nothing more rewarding than hearing from our customers how much they love Eargo, and we will continue to work relentlessly to bring Eargo to the ears of millions.” - Raphael Michel, Founder, Chairman & Chief Strategy Officer

"What first amazed me about the Eargo client was the imagination they had about the product. It is remarkable we've continued to capture the public's imagination despite the challenges we've faced, and after overcoming some bumps in the road." - Randy Sager, Senior Hearing Aid Specialist

“We are pleased our marketing has been well-received, and that it resonates so positively with our consumers, considering how different the tone is compared to that of our competitors. We look forward to further diversifying our marketing outreach to engage with our clients on the platforms where they are most active.” - Jurgen Pauquet, Chief Commercial Officer

“Eargo first came to my attention almost 2 years ago. I had been in the hearing aid industry in various capacities for over 25 years and was beyond intrigued. Everything was different - the marketing tone and feel, the direct-to-consumer model, and of course the Eargo hearing aid design itself. Over the many years in the traditional hearing aid channel, I had always felt there was an opportunity for the right company and product to come along capable of bringing hearing care to the millions of people searching for something different. There have been numerous attempts by companies to do something different, but there was always a piece to the puzzle missing that never gave a product or business staying power. When I first met the Eargo leadership team in late 2016, I knew that the right pieces were in place for something special to take hold. In January 2017 I had the honor to join an amazing team of similar minded professionals who desired to respectfully disrupt the conventional hearing aid delivery model and help more people live a life of better hearing. I can't imagine spending 50+ hours a week working with a better and more fun group of people than those at Eargo.” - Steve Eagon, Head of Sales Operations and Audiologist
