We launched Soundly.com in May 2022 to create a better starting point for the hearing health experience.
The idea initially came from my own frustrating experience searching for hearing aids. It seemed that there should be a simpler, better-organized way to access information about our hearing.
Today Soundly is a team of audiologists, hearing aid wearers, and technologists who are hard at work to build the experiences you find on this site.
What We Do
Soundly does not sell hearing aids directly. In fact, most of our site visitors work with a local doctor to test their hearing and fit their hearing aids.
Instead of selling hearing aids directly, we spend all of our time reviewing products, publishing clearly organized information, and building modern tools to make the process of accessing hearing health easier.
Soundly is supported through advertising and brand partnerships and is independently owned. n
Our Review Process
We physically review the leading hearing aids on the market for sound quality, comfort, durability, and more. We recently recorded live sound from over 20 hearing aids using a calibrated binaural microphone. You can listen to various products throughout the site through the compare section.
In addition to our product reviews, lead audiologist Dr. Amy Sarow authors various hearing health-related guides on everything from Cochlear Implants to Tinnitus. You can find that information on our regularly-updated blog.
We firmly believe that technology is essential for making hearing health more accessible. For that reason, we dedicate significant resources to building helpful tools like our AI-powered chat, Ask Soundly, Audiologist Locator, and free hearing test.
Thousands of visitors use these tools to understand their hearing health and care options.
Hearing wellness deserves more attention. Soundly Studio is our effort to highlight topics related to our ears and hearing. Last Summer, we launched a collection of hearing aids on the #1 kids' gaming platform, Roblox. Fifty million+ players can now wear the new hearing aids during gameplay.
In 2023 we launched World of Sound with GN Hearing and three global artists. The campaign aimed to raise awareness of sound's invisible power in our lives.
