The year-long, experiential health tour will raise awareness around hearing loss, encourage action toward better hearing health, and give back to those in need

SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 1, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Eargo, the direct-to-consumer health tech company behind the

award-winning, rechargeable, nearly invisible hearing aid, today announced a partnership with Songs For Sound, a 501c3 charity for hearing loss, for the upcoming "Hearoes Tour." The national, year-long experiential health tour will spread awareness around hearing loss, provide access to product demos and screening technology, and give back to those in need. The Hearoes Tour kicks off July 2019 and runs through June 2020.

Hearing is our gateway to connection, yet 48 million Americans suffer from hearing loss. Those experiencing hearing loss also wait an average of seven years to take action due to limited education on hearing loss, as well as the costs, stigmas, and misconceptions associated with hearing aids.

The Hearoes Tour will reach those at high risk of developing hearing loss through targeted routing and events, while simultaneously educating the public on the early signs, health risks, and solutions associated with hearing loss. The tour will provide access to state-of-the-art screening technology, fittings for Eargo hearing aids, checklists to navigate the hearing loss journey, and more. The tour will also empower attendees to give back to those in need: for every Eargo purchased after visiting a Hearoes Tour location, Eargo will donate a pair to someone in need (from July 1, 2019 - June 30, 2020).

"Hearing is a core sense that enables us to live a full, active life with rich sound, but there's an unfortunate lack of education on what to do and where to go when you naturally start to lose it," said Christian Gormsen, Eargo CEO. "Eargo and Songs for Sound share the same mission of strengthening awareness around hearing health, make hearing care more accessible, and decreasing the stigma associated with hearing devices. We're proud to partner with Songs for Sound on their Hearoes Tour."

"The goal of the Hearoes Tour is to make sure no American is missed — your father, your grandmother, your uncle who is a Veteran, or your child — from experiencing the wonders of hearing," said Jaime Vernon, founder and executive director for Songs for Sound. "We are so excited to partner with Eargo who we feel are on the forefront of offering the accessible and affordable hearing health experience people deserve."

Eargo was named one of TIME Magazine's Best Inventions of 2018. The company's latest product, Eargo Neo, represents a crowning achievement in sound technology. It offers a new degree of ultra-comfort, and introduces connectivity to Eargo's product lineup with devices that can be customized remotely to provide more personalized hearing profiles for consumers, empowering everyone to once again experience life in rich sound, and live a fuller life.
