Nuheara Limited (ASX: NUH) is a leading audio wearables technology company that develops and provides personal hearing devices based on proprietary and multi-functional intelligent hearing technology that improves a person’s hearing and supports cable free connection to smart devices. Nuheara is headquartered in Australia, with offices in San Francisco and New York, USA as well.
On April 12th, 2019, the company announced the launch of its Direct to Consumer (DTC) platform, enabling a full self-care hearing journey that begins online. Building on its original website, Nuheara has revolutionised the customer journey to cater directly to the customers’ needs by providing a choice of world-leading online hearing assessments that categorises their level of hearing. Thus, customers can understand whether they may need hearing assistance and determine what level of self-care they would suit them effectively.
The company’s CEO Justin Miller remarked, “Proven DTC success models include Smile Direct Club in orthodontics and Warby Parker in optical which have changed the paradigm for self-care in those healthcare categories. These companies have generated strong levels of consumer awareness, sales and multi-billion-dollar valuations.”
Besides, the CEO also believes that their new program would remove the barriers to better hearing health by reaching out to people in remote locations, with products and technology that they can afford, and transform their lives for the better, at a much earlier age without delay.
Recently, he also presented at the Kepler Cheuvreux’s Hearing Aid Day in New York alongside leading investors and hearing aid companies including Demant, Intricon and GN Store Nord.
