Dr. Sperling and the team at the New York Otolaryngology Group, and The New York Hearing Center are providers of Earlens, an advanced technology. They have been designated as a Center of Excellence for Earlens (One of 3 centers nationwide).We are proud to be a provider of Earlens, the world’s first and only hearing solution to directly vibrate the eardrum.Earlens delivers more complete sound than any acoustic hearing aid, and a bandwidth that is associated with more natural sound quality and better hearing in noise.In Earlens, a Processor worn behind the ear sends an audio signal through the Ear Tip to a custom Lens that rests directly on the eardrum. When the eardrum receives the signal, it gently vibrates the eardrum to activate the ear’s natural hearing system.

Reasons to Consider Earlens Contact Hearing Solution

Most complete sound: Earlens can provide meaningful amplification from 125 Hz all the way to 10 kHz, while conventional hearing aids have trouble amplifying outside of 550 Hz to 5.5 kHz. But research has shown that those lower and higher frequencies impact sound quality and speech understanding, especially in noisy environments.

Premium care: Earlens is the only nonsurgical solution that combines the care of an ENT physician and audiologist or hearing health professional.

Advanced, custom technology: Earlens solution includes a custom Ear Tip and Lens to optimize comfort and fit based on an ear impression taken by the ENT physician. After they are ready, your physician will place the Lens in your ear, and your audiologist will program Earlens to your unique hearing needs.

How it Works

The Earlens contact hearing solution includes a small, custom lens that is placed on the eardrum. A behind-the-ear processor receives sound and relays it to the ear tip in the ear canal. The tip sends an electro magnet signal the lens on the eardrum which directly activates the natural hearing system. Designed to prevent the typical feedback loop that troubles traditional amplification, this approach allows the Earlens to achieve high gain values across a broad bandwidth.
