Spotted: Eargo, a Silicon Valley startup, is making invisible hearing aids that aim to de-stigmatise hearing loss. The Eargo Neo hearing aid also has several smart features, including Bluetooth connectivity that allows for settings to be customised remotely.
The startup also took portability into account with a case that is rechargeable and USB-powered. One charge can last the entire day, according to the company.
Established in 2015, Eargo had released two other hearing aid lines before this latest offering. Eargo Neo is currently available for customers in the United States and costs €2300 for a set. Eargo recently raised €46 million in Series D funding.
Springwise has spotted other innovations that aim to make life better for those with hearing loss, including an attachment for spectacles that improves situational awareness for deaf and hard-of-hearing people.
