HEARBUDS are cost effective, over the counter, hearing assistants that you can be proud to wear. The buds were designed to tackle many pain points found in current hearing aids such as difficult to manipulate controls, unaesthetic visual appearance, unwanted bundled costs, and an unintuitive form. The bud caps place importance on the ergonomic finger grip, allowing users to easily place the device in their ears. To combat the stigma around wearing hearing aids, the buds resemble the aesthetics of popular Bluetooth earbuds, allowing users to feel more comfortable wearing them in public.
