ZVOX Announces New Online Hearing Screening Ahead of Over The Counter (OTC) Hearing Aid Regulation Implementation


SWAMPSCOTT, Mass., Nov. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- ZVOX Audio, the pioneering speaker and hearing technology company, has launched an online hearing screening that allows people to get a hearing analysis without leaving their homes. Unlike conventional tests, which measure your ability to hear "beep sounds" at various frequencies and volumes, the ZVOX test measures your ability to understand the human voice in a noisy environment. Developed by hearX Group, a South African digital hearing company, the new test is based on a recently published study of hearing assessment.

"Conventional hearing tests use tones to evaluate your hearing," says ZVOX CEO Tom Hannaher. "But this screening uses words in background noise, which may better represent your difficulty in noisy environments." Available at, all you need to take the screening is a pair of headphones or earbuds. While some people should have their hearing tested by a trained audiologist, for those with mild to moderate hearing loss, the ZVOX test should prove to be highly effective.

ZVOX. A new kind of hearing company.
ZVOX was founded in 2003 by two long-time consumer electronics veterans. ZVOX is credited by CNET with "perfecting the TV sound bar." In 2016 they introduced a TV speaker that uses hearing aid technology to make dialogue easier to understand. Their patented AccuVoice design led them into the world of audiology and hearing aids, where they met Dr. Thomas Powers, former VP of Audiology for Siemens Hearing Aids. Dr. Powers helped guide the development of ZVOX's VB20 hearing aid.

ZVOX now makes a variety of hearing related products including speakers, wireless headphones and hearing aids. It sells though, Amazon, Home Shopping Network, QVC, and selected retailers including Magnolia stores within Best Buy locations.
