“We saw a need in the market for a non-medical device that provides just the right amount of amplification and filtration when needed.” Patrick Freuler, Audicus CEO

The world is getting noisier and people are increasingly having trouble discerning speech in settings like restaurants, theaters, work functions and large gatherings. The Solo provides a personalized listening experience for those who want an occasional sound boost.
“The Solo is terrific at enhancing sound and reducing background noise,” said Audicus CEO Patrick Freuler. “We saw a need in the market for a non-medical device that provides just the right amount of amplification and filtration when needed.”
The Solo set-up process is unique. Users first request a free set-up kit, which includes noise-canceling headphones. These are used with an app, the Audicus Tuner, which can be downloaded on an iPhone or iPad. The app asks users about challenging listening environments and guides them through a series of listening exercises to determine their preferences.
“We spent considerable time researching people’s needs and developing the Audicus Tuner app,” said Freuler. “The app makes it easy for users to select their preferences before receiving the Solo.”
Once the Solo is personalized based on the user’s input, Audicus sends it to them for a 45-day trial.
At just $399, the Solo ranks as one of the most affordable, high-tech hearing amplifiers available online. Most importantly, it allows users to listen to the world at full volume, empowering them to engage with their surroundings.
