Who we are
We’re an Australian hearing health technology company making a difference to the lives of everyday people. Audeara's personalisation tech capability helps listeners engage with the world around them. We were founded by doctors and are supported by a team of talented audiologists, engineers and musicians. All Audeara products are proudly designed and engineered in Australia.
We're on a mission
Our vision is a world where all people use a personalised sound experience to help live their best life. We care about listening equity and supporting healthy hearing, educating you about preserving and protecting the hearing you have, so you can enjoy all the things that matter.
Audeara is for everyone
Everyone hears differently, and your left ear hears differently to your right. Like prescription glasses, Audeara’s personalisation technology provides clarity and depth that can’t be achieved with generic headphones. You’ll hear sounds you didn’t know were there! It also means that sound is clearer, not louder - a key to preserving hearing and preventing further loss.
Audeara’s technology and over-ear comfort means our headphones are also suitable for cochlear implant and hearing aid wearers.
Supporting local communities
Helping people in our community is something we're proud of. You can find our products in over 1300 Audiology clinics around Australia. We're also an approved device for Australian Government programs including the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) and Hearing Services Program (HSP).
Dr James Fielding, CEO started this journey as a junior doctor seeing patients struggle to get hearing tests. In exploring this issue and an endeavour to develop an accessible hearing test, he unlocked a passion to solve an even greater problem. Around the same time, he watched his grandfather refuse to get help with his declining hearing and subsequently his ability to engage with the world.
What started out as accessible hearing test software, turned into a way to change sound output via a set of headphones. It turns out that changing sound so it’s suited to an individual hearing profile makes a significant difference to an overall listening experience.
The software evolved to provide listeners with a simple understanding of their hearing, which can be performed in the comfort of their own home. This provides an objective measure of how they compare to other people, so they can then make informed choices about their lifestyle or need to see a hearing health professional.
Hearing health has never been on my radar until I came across Audeara ... they have changed the way I think about sound!
