Developed by audiologists for better hearing

Diminished hearing, or not trusting your hearing, keeps you from being your best and getting the best out of life. That’s why our team of scientists, audiologists, and engineers leveraged decades of expertise to create the first FDA-cleared direct-to-consumer hearing aids you can easily fit and tune yourself with the app for audiologist-quality results.

Scientists and audiologists helped develop SoundControl Hearing Aids

Natural, lifelike sound

Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids let you enjoy high-quality audio to hear more of what you want with natural, lifelike sound — even in noisy environments.

This means you’ll have an easier time hearing soft-spoken people and children. And speech that once sounded like mumbling, particularly certain consonant sounds, will now sound more clear. All of which makes following and participating in conversations easier.

A simple, self-fit solution

Easy to purchase and easy to use. We provide everything you need to ensure a proper fit — including multiple sizes of eartips, a fitting tool, and batteries. Download the self-tuning app for simple step-by-step instructions, then start customizing your sound. Need help? Our Hear Product Experts are available to help you every step of the way.

INTERACTIVE PRODUCT DEMO

Hear how it works

Hearing in certain situations can be challenging, especially in noisy ones. While no hearing aid can restore normal hearing, Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids can help you hear better in different environments.

Watching TV

The following is a simulation and actual product experiences will vary. This is a sample of what the product can do and does not represent its full capabilities.

BOSE HEAR APP

Tune it yourself

The Bose Hear app works with SoundControl™ Hearing Aids to provide clinically proven audiologist-quality customization to fit a variety of situations. With CustomTune™ technology, just two controls allow you to set the volume and sound clarity of what you hear to your liking.

Amplify sounds you want to hear

World Volume turns up the sounds around you so you can hear better. As World Volume is increased, quiet sounds are amplified more than loud sounds so you can hear what’s around you more comfortably.

Tune sounds for better quality

The treble/bass settings let you adjust the tone so voices and sounds are more natural. Turn treble up to make sounds brighter and crisper. Use the bass setting to make sounds richer and deeper.

Focus, when you need it

Microphones in each hearing aid work together with the Focus setting in the Bose Hear app to choose the direction you want to hear. Select the Front feature on the app to focus in front of you, which is ideal for conversations, especially in noisy environments. The Everywhere feature lets you listen all around you, which is best for general listening, like walking outdoors.

Create modes for different environments

A favorite restaurant. Popular walking trails. Watching TV with your family. Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids let you store your preferred settings as modes for those places and situations. Once set up, it’s a quick and effortless way to instantly adjust your hearing aids, so nothing gets in the way of engaging in the moment.

The Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids are intended to amplify sound for individuals 18 years of age or older with perceived mild to moderate hearing impairment.

The device is intended for direct-to-consumer sale and use without the assistance of a hearing care professional.

Hearing health care information

This product may help you hear better if you:

  • Have mild-to-moderate hearing loss
  • Strain to follow conversations when others don’t, especially in noisy places
  • Have trouble understanding the TV

This product may not be right for you if you:

  • Have severe or profound hearing loss
  • Consistently experience feedback (whistling) of the hearing aid when you turn up World Volume to a level that is comfortable for you, even after you have followed the suggestions in these Instructions for Use to make sure your hearing aid fits properly
  • Feel the hearing aid is not providing enough amplification even at the highest World Volume setting

A hearing health care professional may be able to help you select a different hearing aid solution to meet your needs.

You should see a hearing health care professional if you:

  • Have a visible deformity of the ear
  • Have a current ear infection or a history of active discharge from one or both ears within the past 90 days
  • Have sudden or rapid progression of hearing loss within the past 90 days in one or both ears
  • Have acute or chronic dizziness, poor dexterity, poor vision, or significant dementia
  • Suspect that you have significant ear wax accumulation or a foreign object in the ear canal. Symptoms of significant ear wax accumulation can include itching in your ear, a feeling of fullness in your ear, and/or reduced hearing
  • Experience pain or discomfort in the ear
  • Have a noticeable difference in hearing between ears
  • Have sudden onset or rapid worsening of tinnitus (ringing in the ear) in one or both ears within the past 90 days

This product will not restore normal hearing and will not prevent or improve a hearing impairment resulting from organic conditions. This product is designed to help you make greater use of your remaining hearing ability. You should keep in mind that it can take time to become accustomed to hearing new sounds. For best results, practice using the hearing aids as much as possible. In most cases, infrequent use of the hearing aids doesn’t permit you to attain full benefit from them. The use of a hearing aid is only part of hearing habilitation and may need to be supplemented by auditory training and instruction in lipreading. It is good health practice for a person with hearing loss to have a medical evaluation by a licensed physician (preferably a physician who specializes in diseases of the ear). Licensed physicians who specialize in diseases of the ear are often referred to as otolaryngologists, otologists, or otorhinolaryngologists. The purpose of a medical evaluation is to assure that all medically treatable conditions that may affect hearing are identified and treated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They work! I’ve been suffering from mild hearing loss for most of my adult life and I have always been reluctant to go through the hassle of going to a doctor’s office, running the usual tests and getting a set of prescribed hearing aids. I always thought I could manage and adapt to everyday situations. But then I came upon this Bose SoundControl Hearing Aids, which helped me avoid the whole audiologist ordeal, and now that I did it, I realize how much I was missing from life. THEY WORK! It took me a couple of days to learn how to get the proper setting through the app (which works amazingly by the way), but once I was done, I got to experience sounds that I’ve missed completely in the past. Being in a room full of people and not having to turn my head to focus my attention is something that I will definitely not miss. They are very small and light, almost unnoticeable to others and I don’t get tired of using them even forgetting I have them on. They come with different ear-tip sizes to accommodate to my ears perfectly. The first set of batteries did not last that long as I did not pay attention to the manual’s instruction to open the compartment to prevent them from draining completely (my fault). But after I started doing that, I noticed a significant increase in battery life. Overall, very satisfied with my purchase and highly recommend this product to everybody looking for an quality option in hearing aids. 5 out of 5!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bose quality at its best! My first instinct, when I saw this product, was thinking how Bose is known around the world for their high-quality products. That’s what caught my attention. Now, from that to really help me with my hearing loss, was a big step, but I decided to give it a try and I can say I was not disappointed. You first notice the high-end quality Bose is known for in the packaging… the presentation is impeccable, you can see and feel the materials, the carrying case, the multiple ear tips and fitting tool. Then you go through the set-up, which is very intuitive and user friendly by using the app. It took me a couple of hours to navigate through all the screens and settings, but once I was done, I was mesmerized. Now I get to enjoy simple things like walking around the neighborhood listening to everything that happens around me. At first it was kind of a shock and I had to adjust the volume a bit down to graduate it to my best fit. I have also noticed a huge difference following conversations along and watching TV shows. My family does not have to put up with the TV at such high volumes I had them used to, so this has not only be good for me but for my entire family. I am very satisfied and grateful that I was able to get my hands on this amazing device and I highly recommend it!

FAQs

Can Bose SoundControl™ Hearings Aids stream music? Can I take phone calls?

Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids cannot stream music nor take phone calls directly from your device. To take calls, try holding the phone speaker slightly above and behind the ear so that it is in closer proximity to the microphones. Please note when used like this, phone audio will be heard in one hearing aid only.

When will Bose SoundControl™ hearing aids be available for me to order (or available in my state)?

Initially, SoundControl™ Hearing Aids are available on a limited geographic basis. We expect availability within the United States to expand within the coming year. If SoundControl™ Hearing Aids are not available to order in your location, you will be prompted to sign up for emails to be notified. We’ll be in touch when we have announcements to make.

I have more severe hearing loss. Will SoundControl™ Hearing Aids work for me?

No. Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids are intended for individuals 18 years and older with perceived mild to moderate hearing loss.

Can I pay with my FSA or HSA account?

Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids are eligible for FSA/HSA reimbursement. Please retain your order confirmation and receipt and check with your provider for their reimbursement procedures and how to submit a claim.

What is the typical battery life?

With typical usage, Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids will get up to 56 hours of runtime. Each battery can provide up to 4 days of use, assuming you use both hearing aids for 14 hours per day. Battery life may vary by battery brand, age, frequency of use or if you only use a single hearing aid. When a replacement is needed, use only size 312 zinc-air batteries.

Do Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids stream TV audio directly to the hearing aids? Would they work with a Bluetooth transmitter?

No. Sounds from the TV are amplified like other environmental sounds. Depending on your environment, it may be helpful to sit in front of the television and change the Focus mode to Front.

Can I just use one hearing aid?

Yes. First, the hearing aids must initially be paired to the phone as a pair. Then, a single hearing aid can be used. Adjustments can be made in the app or on the device.

What is Bluetooth technology and how do Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids use it?

Bluetooth technology is a wireless standard used in mobile devices to wirelessly connect them to the hearing aids. Unlike headphones, Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids use Bluetooth Low Energy only. This standard allows for commands to be transmitted wirelessly from the mobile device to the hearing aids. Adjustments from the Bose Hear app are transmitted to the hearing aids via Bluetooth Low Energy.

What tablets or smartphones are compatible with Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids?

Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids are compatible with any iOS and Android devices that use Bluetooth 4.2 or later. Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids are set up and controlled by the Bose Hear app and use Bluetooth Low Energy to communicate with the app.

Can Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids be connected to multiple devices?

Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids can connect and remember up to 20 devices. However, it can only connect to one mobile device at a time. 

Will my own voice sound different when using Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids?

Yes. The sound of your own voice may sound louder when wearing Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids. You may prefer the open tips over the closed tips if you’re sensitive to the volume of your own voice. Practice speaking with a trusted partner in a familiar environment to adjust to the new sound with low pressure before moving to higher-pressure social situations.

Do I have to use the app with the hearing aids?

For first time setup and fine-tuning adjustments, the Bose Hear app is required. Buttons on the hearing aid control World Volume and provide a convenient way to make adjustments without the app.

Can the battery in Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids be replaced?

Yes. Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids will play a “Low Battery” voice prompt indicating that the batteries should be replaced soon. They use size 312 zinc-air batteries.

What are Modes?

Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids let you store your preferred settings as modes for your favorite places and situations. It’s a quick and effortless way to adjust your hearing aids to your favorite settings of World Volume, Treble & Bass, and Focus.

What are the buttons on the hearing aid?

The buttons on each hearing aid control World Volume. A single press up increases World Volume by 5 steps. And a single press down decreases World Volume by 5 steps. Pressing the buttons on one hearing aid will adjust the World Volume levels of both hearing aids.

What is the Focus feature?

The Focus feature allows you to hear the direction you want to hear. There are 2 settings available for the Focus feature: Front and Everywhere. In Front mode, the microphones in the hearing aids focus on sounds in front of you. This setting can help you hear better in occasions like group conversations at a table in a restaurant. In the Everywhere setting, the microphones are not just focused on sounds in front of you, but all around you as well. This setting is ideal for occasions like walking on a busy street or at a park.

What type of data is collected through the Bose Hear App?

When you connect your SoundControl™ Hearing Aids to the Bose Hear App, we automatically receive information about the product and how the product and the Bose Hear App are used. This information includes technical, diagnostic, environmental, and usage data as described in our Privacy Policy. Usage data includes your use of Bose Hear App features and the settings of the product, such as World Volume level and other product usage information. You can opt out of the collection of diagnostic and usage data by visiting the Settings menu in the Bose Hear App and restarting the App. For more information about data collected from connected Bose products, please see the Privacy Policy.

What is CustomTune™ technology?

Bose CustomTune™ technology lets you customize your hearing aids with audiologist quality results. The clinically proven technology helps you adjust your hearing parameters within the Bose Hear App using two simple controls: World Volume and Treble & Bass. This technology offers hundreds of options to customize your hearing.

Will sounds be different when using Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids?

Yes. Better hearing requires getting used to new (typically higher frequency) sound, which can make some sounds annoying. For example, squeaky environment sounds, water sprays, or spoken consonants (/s/, /sh/, etc.). You may need to practice listening to new sounds on your own before relying on them for conversation. Some people may not wish to make large adjustments to the World Volume and Bass & Treble adjustments, in which case, the sounds won’t be much different at all.

Are SoundControl™ Hearing Aids water resistant?

Yes. SoundControl™ Hearing Aids are resistant to water and able to survive light exposure to rain or water. However, we recommend you keep the hearing aids dry and protected from prolonged exposure. Prolonged exposure to water may damage the hearing aids. Water exposure may necessitate a 24-hour drying period before resumed use.

What are Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids?

Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids with CustomTune™ technology are the first self-fit hearing aids you can purchase, fit, program, and control on your own, without assistance from a health care professional. Their lightweight behind-the-ear design is discrete and comfortable to wear all day. Bose SoundControl™ Hearing Aids use CustomTune™ technology to offer clinically proven audiologist-quality customization to help adults 18 years and older with perceived mild to moderate hearing loss hear better.

How often should I replace parts? How do I get the most from my hearing aids?

It is recommended to replace the eartips and wax guards every three months. The cables should be replaced once a year. The replacement time may vary depending on usage.

What is Left and Right Balance?

Left and Right Balance enables different levels of World Volume in each ear. Adjustments can be controlled in the Bose Hear app.

How should the eartips be maintained?

After removing the hearing aids, remove earwax and debris from the eartips and microphones using the provided hearing aid brush or a soft, lint-free cloth. It is recommended to replace the eartips every 3 months.
