Sonic Innovations is an American hearing aid company which has been bought over by William Demant Holdings, in November 2010. William Demant Holdings also owns Oticon and Bernafon and through the Sonic Innovations acquisition, obtained several hundred HearingLife clinics throughout the world.
Sonic Innovation’s technology development has always focused on producing the best electronic noise reduction algorithms, but due to the company’s smaller size, they have not released dramatically new technology for a number of years. The recent acquisition has seen this change fairly quickly as they started sharing technology with Oticon’s much larger research and development department and then combine the superior hardware with their market leading noise reduction algorithms. Their latest Enchant range is a result of this buyout and now offers direct to iPhone connectivity, superior sound quality and arguably the one of the best feedback management systems of any hearing aid out there.
