SoundFocus, a graduate of the Y-Combinator Summer 2013 batch, is creating the next generation of hearing aids. Our solution addresses the three main issues with hearing aids today: stigma, cost, and diagnosis. We have developed patent pending technology that enables accurate self diagnosis of your hearing loss and puts the full power of hearing aids into software that can run on low cost hardware. SoundFocus' solution is $70 which is 30x cheaper than the average price of a hearing aid today ($2000 which is not covered by insurance). Ultimately, we are helping the 600 million people world wide with hearing loss.
To demonstrate our technology, we have built an iOS music player "SoundFocus" that leverages our 1 minute test and our advanced audio processing. You can download it here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/symphonic/id670086460
