Where we began
My hearing journey started in kindergarten, when my teacher told my parents that I didn’t respond when she called my name. I started wearing hearing aids shortly after. For a long time, I actually wore them on and off because I did not fully accept that I had hearing loss or that I needed hearing aids. I felt frustrated through this journey, and since people generally didn’t talk about hearing, I didn’t talk about it either.
Eventually, I worked up the courage to open up, and I learned that I was not alone. It pained me to hear over and over again that people thought that there wasn’t anything they could do. I decided it was time to do something about this, and after countless user interviews and dozens of early prototypes, I finally landed on Concha Labs.
Hopefully you’ll find what we’ve developed to be helpful in your journey. Here’s to enjoying the richness in sound and conversations together.
