Eargo Launches Eargo 5 Hearing Aid with Sound MatchTM Technology
Start hearing life to the fullest with the ultimate Eargo device, completely redesigned to be customizable to your hearing preferences.
SAN JOSE, CA — Eargo, Inc. (Nasdaq: EAR), a medical device company on a mission to improve the quality of life for people with hearing loss, today announced the launch of Eargo 5, the company’s most advanced hearing aid to date.
Eargo 5 is Eargo’s fifth generation device and is a medical-grade, FDA Class II exempt hearing device designed to be customizable to the user’s hearing preferences through all new Sound Match™ technology. Through Sound Match™, Eargo 5 enables at-home hearing screenings and custom tuning with no clinic visits or waiting rooms. At a fraction of the price of traditional hearing aids, it also presents a real opportunity for the estimated 43 million Americans suffering from mild to moderate hearing loss to take full control of their hearing health.
Eargo 5 is also the smallest in-canal, rechargeable hearing aid Eargo has ever made, and includes Eargo’s best sound quality yet. Users can control sound with just a tap, choosing from four presets optimized to common situations, and adjusting noise reduction and other sound settings on the go. Users can also use the Eargo 5 mobile app on Android and iOS to fine-tune their settings for their sound environment—anytime, anywhere.
Eargo even reimagined its approach to charging and maintenance with Eargo 5, delivering a seamless experience for users. Updates include new contact pins with magnets to keep devices in place for contactless charging, redesigned Petal ear tips which include built-in filters for easier maintenance, and extra mic caps which keep devices free of debris.
A fully customized battery empowered by VARTA provides up to five years of running time based on usage and the highest energy density in the smallest space. Eargo 5 is fully charged within four hours for up to 15 hours of continuous power. The lithium-ion technology of the battery enables faster and easier charging while meeting the highest levels of safety.
Customers can expect Eargo 5 to continue to get better over time, as both the hearing aid and charger are in-field upgradeable.
