About Zounds Hearing
Zounds founder, Sam Thomasson, an electrical engineer based in Mesa, Arizona, began to develop the Zounds power hearing aid to help his daughter, Kate who at age 2, lost most of her hearing because of a sudden high fever. At age 16, Kate received the first prototype of the Zounds power hearing aid and her life was changed forever. For the first time, she could truly hear the sound of music. Thomasson founded Zounds Hearing in 2005 and holds 57 patents for the technologies he developed to resolve his daughter’s hearing aid issues.
