Sonova is a global leader in innovative hearing care solutions: from personal audio devices and wireless communication systems to audiological care services, hearing aids and cochlear implants. The Group was founded in 1947 and is headquartered in Stäfa, Switzerland.
Sonova operates through four businesses – Hearing Instruments, Audiological Care, Consumer Hearing and Cochlear Implants – and the core brands Phonak, Unitron, AudioNova, Sennheiser (under license) and Advanced Bionics as well as recognized regional brands. The Group’s globally diversified sales and distribution channels serve an ever growing consumer base in more than 100 countries.
In the 2021/22 financial year, the Group generated sales of CHF 3.4 billion, with a net profit of CHF 664 million. Over 16,500 employees are working on achieving Sonova's vision of a world where everyone enjoys the delight of hearing.
Around one billion people in the world today cannot hear well – although they would significantly profit from the use of hearing instruments. Sonova provides the most comprehensive range of solutions to address hearing loss: leading-edge hearing aids and accessories from Phonak, Unitron and Hansaton, providing a natural listening experience through advanced, versatile technology; innovative cochlear implants from Advanced Bionics, bringing reliable hearing solutions to children and adults with significant hearing loss. Sonova offers its solutions to end-users through a wide variety of service channel partners, providing them with the support they need to ensure that each consumer and patient receives the appropriate care for an optimal hearing experience.
The hearing aid market continues to grow, driven by long-term socio-economic forces. It is also a diverse market, requiring a broad range of technologically advanced solutions and high reach customer service channels.
Sonova is ideally positioned to benefit from those trends.
Understanding our customers’ articulated and unexpressed needs and turning them into our challenges – this is what motivates us daily - and ultimately leads to innovation leadership. Be it in products, solutions, or processes across all disciplines.
Our overall goal is to make sure that all people, especially those affected by hearing loss, can hear the world surrounding them and live their lives to the fullest. We carefully listen to the what current users say about our technology as well as to the feedback of hearing care professionals who want to provide optimal care. We combine this input with our deep technological and audiological know-how and relentlessly challenge the current limits of technology to strive for the optimal solution. That's how we drive our rich pipeline of new products: with the purpose to make people hear the world.
