JLab is entering the hearing health category with the same combination of incredible value, accessible price, and innovation that has made it one of the best-selling brands of true wireless earbuds in the U.S. JLab’s new Hearing Health category includes preventative protective devices for adults, children, and infants, along with over-the-counter hearing aids for adults who currently suffer from mid-to-moderate hearing loss. We’re here to make life better for all.Hearing Protection Hearing Loss
ALL JLab wireless headphones will have a hearing safe mode to ensure you don’t listen too loud. The hearing safe mode will be available in all products developed in 2023 and beyond.
Hearing loss is the third most common chronic physical condition in the U.S.  and carries multiple negative societal and functional characteristics.
Noise-induced hearing loss is experienced by roughly 24% of all US adults, including one in five 20- to 29-year-olds.
Every concert must offer hearing protection – Loud entertainment venues (such as concerts) can generate anywhere between 105-110 decibels on average. In these environments, hearing loss is possible within less than 5 minutes of exposure, according to the CDC.
Hearing loss is the 3rd most prevalent health condition in older adults. More than 80% of adults over 50 who have hearing loss do not wear them, with many citing financial reasons as an underlying factor, according to a study published by the Archives of Internal Medicine. With the cost of some high-end hearing aids reaching over $10,000, it is not surprising that financial concerns are cited.
Over the counter hearing aids offer a more affordable and easy-to-use option for those with mild to moderate hearing loss. These devices are available without a prescription and are designed to provide a simple, straightforward solution to hearing loss. Unlike traditional hearing aids, over the counter options are typically much more affordable.
Still over-the-counter hearing aids range from $300-$2600+ – much higher and inaccessible to the average person. JLab is bringing the same innovation and awesome value that made us the #1 true wireless under $100.
Save the date for JLab’s 2023 release of a $99 OTC Hearing Aid.
Straight from the Lab, we are innovating the hearing health category with our touch of real innovation and surprisingly value. Later this year, we’ll start shipping our newest innovation: Over-the-counter hearing aids that offer surprisingly awesome value (in a market that thinks $800 is a deal).
It’s worth the wait.References
