A history of caring and innovation.

We have helped people with hearing loss for more than 130 years and are the largest, most innovative manufacturer of hearing aids in the world.

Our Siemens hearing products help hearing care providers deliver personalized hearing solutions to their patients—enabling them to lead richer, fuller lives.

We integrate the most innovative and advanced technologies into products that meet the widest variety of needs. More than 70 percent of our products are less than two years old. We are committed to creating solutions for all types and degrees of hearing loss, while fulfilling the design, function, and cosmetic preferences of each individual consumer.

We serve professionals and patients with the passion to innovate and the experience to deliver. With the industry’s broadest product portfolio—including completely invisible, waterproof, rechargeable hearing aids and award-winning accessories that connect a user’s hearing aids wirelessly to mobile phones, TVs, MP3 players, and other media devices—and the best training, tools and support hearing care professionals use with confidence.

Helping people with hearing loss for more than 130 years.

Our history is a story about caring for family and employees. Founder Werner von Siemens invented the first hearing instrument in 1878 because his hearing-impaired wife found it difficult to use the telephone. In 1910, the company created the first line of hearing aids for Siemens employees and their families—many of whom (like Werner von Siemens himself) suffered hearing damage during military service. Because we always valued corporate responsibility, the hearing aids were soon made available to everyone.

Solutions that fit a wide range of hearing needs and lifestyles.

A pioneer in audiology, we have always put the preferences and needs of the wearer first. Now, thanks to extensive research into consumers’ motivations and lifestyles, the company is even better prepared to provide the most comfortable, distinct, and personalized solutions. From tiny and discreet to completely invisible and even waterproof, Siemens hearing devices are manufactured to support even the most active lifestyles. Award-winning accessories work seamlessly with the instruments, helping wearers stay connected to and take advantage of today’s ever-changing technology.

Inspired by our customers.

Our customers inspire the company to design the best hearing aids that not only improve people’s hearing, but also improve lives. With Siemens hearing products, hearing care professionals can be confident they have the widest selection of products, performance levels, and price ranges to choose from—enabling them to select the best solution for their patients.
