Signia Launches Interactive Concept Store ‘Brilliant Sound Galaxy’in Jaipur with Earbuddy Hearing Clinics

Jaipur, July 10, 2024.

Signia, a premier brand under the WS Audiology group and a global leader in hearing aid technology, today announced the launch of ‘Brilliant Sound Galaxy (BSG)’, an innovative concept store that redefines the experience of hearing solutions in India. This first of its kind store in Jaipur will empower consumers to self-discover and self-screen their hearing, experience hearing live with hearing aids, and make an informed decision to enhance their hearing journey.

The Brilliant Sound Galaxy symbolizes modern hearing care by offering comprehensive, high-quality solutions for those with hearing impairments. BSG integrates interactive experiences, innovative products, and expert audiological advice all under one roof, setting a new standard for hearing care services.

Globally, hearing loss is a significant concern, affecting an estimated 1.6 billion people. Of these, approximately 430 million experience severe hearing difficulties. The World Health Organization predicts these numbers to climb to 2.5 billion by 2050, with a staggering 700 million anticipated to face debilitating hearing challenges. As per WHO estimates, in India, approximately 6.3% of the population are suffering from Significant Auditory Impairment and need intervention to improve their quality of life.

Despite solutions being available, a scant 20% of those affected have access to vital hearing aids. This lack of care manifests in societal ramifications, leading to feelings of isolation, mental health challenges, cognitive setbacks, and hindered career opportunities.

“Hearing loss is the most common sensory deficit in humans today. There is a stigma associated with hearing loss that is well known. Many factors contribute to the stigma, but perhaps the biggest one is that we don’t talk about it enough,” said Mr. Avinash Pawar, CEO & Managing Director, WS Audiology India.

“Untreated hearing loss has social, physical, and psychological consequences. With the launch of BSG, we aim to provide a youthful and inclusive experience that reframes assumptions about hearing aids and empowers the people of Jaipur to take action,” Mr. Pawar continued.

Brilliant Sound Galaxy in Jaipur will be operated by Earbuddy Hearing Clinics, a trusted hearing aid clinic retail chain, which understands the profound impact that hearing loss can have on one’s quality of life. Mr. SyedSohail Arshad, Founder & Director of Earbuddy Hearing Clinics said, “Inaugurating the Brilliant Sound Galaxy center in Jaipur is a significant step in our mission to support the hearing-impaired community. This initiative will not only raise awareness and reduce the stigma associated with hearing aids but also provide comprehensive and personalized hearing care solutions for the people of Jaipur and beyond.”
