PHOENIX - June 18, 2015 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Zounds Hearing, Inc., the fastest-growing hearing aid company in the U.S. with corporate and franchise locations from coast to coast, announces the opening of its 200th store.
“Our 200th store represents a significant milestone for Zounds. It’s been my personal goal to offer state-of-the-art technology at an affordable price to anyone with mild, moderate or severe hearing loss,” said Sam Thomasson, founder and CEO of Zounds Hearing, Inc. “It is very gratifying to know that with the opening of each new store, we’re reaching more people, and helping them hear better and enjoy life more fully.”
Thomasson has firsthand experience with the frustrations of using hearing aids that don’t work properly, as his daughter Kate has been hearing impaired since early childhood. “Kate struggled to understand and vocalize speech,” said Thomasson. “Hearing in noisy environments like a restaurant or car was especially difficult and her hearing aids would frequently squeal, causing her pain. As an electrical engineer, I knew that if she was to have the kind of life she deserved, I had to do something about it.”
Much of Zounds’ success has been attributed to its ability to eliminate up to 90% of background noise. “Those of us with family members who suffer from hearing loss understand the problems they face in noisy restaurants, social gatherings and theaters,” said Thomasson. “Our advanced technology reduces background noise, making life so much more enjoyable for them. The convenience of the rechargeable battery station, as well as our competitive pricing, make us their first choice for hearing aids.”
Zounds Hearing designs, manufactures and retails high-performance hearing aids for use with mild, moderate, severe and profound hearing impairments. Headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, the company's technology enables breakthroughs in product, performance, selection and value. Zounds utilizes internally developed research and 52 exclusive patents.
