A Letter from the Founder

Live your mental age.

My dad is the inspiration behind Hark. He’s an accomplished physics professor who was having problems hearing his soft-spoken students. So like any good scientist, he decided to fix the problem. After endless research, multiple office visits and a whopper of a bill at the end, he was the proud owner of a pair of hearing aids … that ended up living in his desk drawer. You see, in his words, hearing aids made him feel like “an old fart.” And while my dad is approaching retirement, on the inside he still feels 45— invigorated, energized and “crushing it.” His true age is his mental age.

I founded Hark because we all deserve to feel like the very best version of ourselves. Hearing aids should make you feel confident, empowered, and in the game.

That’s no easy feat. So we set out to remove the stigma surrounding hearing aids by offering Hark performance hearing tech—cutting-edge, design-forward product you’ll feel good about wearing. We streamlined the process to be super-convenient, giving you access to top audiologists; assessment, fitting, and delivery happen without ever leaving your home. Our goal is to give you an amazing experience at an affordable price.

Here's to living your mental age.
