Hearing Aid Delight


Delight was founded with an awareness of the fact that the government’s subsidies for hearing impairments are unreasonably low in comparison to the high price of hearing aids. Delight aims to solve the current hearing aid market problems and help many low income hard-of-hearing individuals to get their hearing back. By running an entrepreneurial system, Delight tries to give hope to people who cannot work because of their hearing impairment despite their abilities, and to those who feel isolated from society.


Business Model:

Online supply + Recruiting consumers and making group purchases = Reduced production costs, operating costs and labor costs due to purchasing in bulk

-       Develops standard hearing aids designed specifically for Korean ears

-       Manufactures hearing aids that are not inferior to the product performance of the products in the current market
