Audiotoniq created one of the first Bluetooth hearing aids that could be controlled with a smartphone. Mixer studied head and ear anatomy to help them create a small, comfortable and technology rich device. We explored form factors that questioned the traditional hearing aid shape. Our shop produced prototypes that were tested on numerous subjects while our Mechanical Engineering team focused on making the tightest electronics package possible.
Batteries are a hassle in hearing aids, especially for older folks with limited dexterity and impaired vision. We chose to create a more convenient rechargeable system. A bedside charging station uses magnets to seat the devices properly and UV lighting helps keep the hearing aid sanitized.
