At Audientes, our mission is to help the millions of people around the world who suffer from mild to severe hearing loss.
Founded in Copenhagen in 2014, Audientes’ mission is to help the millions of people around the world who suffer from mild to severe hearing loss. After many years working with hardware and software development, Audientes Founder, Hossein Jelved wanted to design and build a new type of aid – a hearable – that was both high-quality and self-fitting, and to then make it easily accessible and affordable to anyone who needs it. Today, more than 465 million people in the world suffer from disabling hearing loss but only 14 million hearing aids are sold annually. Hearing aids are expensive and generally require visiting an audiologist or a hearing clinic for fitting and fine tuning; factors that immediately exclude the majority of hearing-impaired people, either because they cannot afford one or live too far away from a hearing specialist. It was this global problem that Hossein wanted to address with Audientes.
Founded and led by a team with expertise in market innovation, business development, design and creating affordable products at scale.
