UpState Hearing is celebrating 25+ years!
What a wonderful journey it has been.
All of us at UpState Hearing Instruments are proud to celebrate this milestone. Serving our customers and their families brings us so much joy each day.
25 Years of Technological Advancements
There have been some significant advancements over the last 25 years. In 1997 the very first digital hearing aid came out from Oticon, but an even bigger improvement for user satisfaction was the very first truly “open ear” hearing aid from Vivatone in 2004. Now 80 percent of all our hearing aids are open ear with the speaker in the ear.
Over the last 25 years as technology has improved, our ability to really address the needs of the hard of hearing has improved. UpState Hearing Instruments is much more of a user-driven company and our decisions are based on “what is the best for the hard of hearing”.
Hearing Aids and Cultural Acceptance
Hearing aids are a much more accepted and used today than ever before. Seems like everyone knows about hearing aids and knows someone who wears them. It is also much more competitive today then ever and that is a good thing for the consumer, albeit a little confusing at times. People better understand the need to hear well and connect with their family friends and coworkers for a better quality of life.
