Via AI

The world’s first hearing aid that monitors brain and body activity, provides heart rate* information, and can detect if you’ve fallen and send an alert to your selected contacts. Using integrated sensors and artificial intelligence, Via AI is a multi-purpose device that redefines what a hearing aid can do.

Most fitness tracking devices use the wrist, but the ear provides far more accurate data (1) – in fact, it’s the ideal spot for reliable tracking, and Via AI is the first-ever device to take advantage of that.

Via AI also features easy tap control and can translate up to 27 languages. Our voice-controlled Thrive Virtual Assistant can answer your questions on various topics. And if that’s not enough, it’s also our best sounding and best performing hearing aid ever.

Supreme sound quality

Thanks to a new technology we call Hearing Reality, Via AI is designed to be effective in the noisiest environments. In fact, a recent independent study gave Via AI hearing aids the top rating compared to other manufacturers’ premium devices for reducing background noise in noisy listening environments. (2)


You'll be able to hear speech more comfortably, even in a busy restaurant or coffee shop, while unwanted noises will be suppressed.


Via AI hearing aids work seamlessly with accessories and your favorite digital devices to help you connect to your world and to:

  • Deliver superior sound quality, listening clarity, more natural hearing and effortless transitions
  • Preserve peace and quiet while amplifying the important things, and help you better understand conversations
  • Stream phone calls, music and messages directly from your smartphone to your hearing aids
  • Offer remote programming so we can make minor adjustments without an office visit

The connection between health and hearing

Hearing health is directly connected to overall health and well-being. That’s been proven, and it means people who are able to hear can engage with the world around them and live better and healthier lives.


Ever-increasing evidence also shows treatment of hearing loss with hearing aids can improve or limit some serious health issues such as cognitive decline and dementia. (3)


Via AI lets people of all ages take a proactive approach to their overall wellness. Sensors inside the hearing aids detect movement, activities, and different gestures. The hearing aids then communicate with each other, and with multiple accessories, to deliver meaningful benefits beyond traditional amplification.

Better hearing means better brain and body health

Easily monitor your body and brain health with your smartphone and the full-featured Thrive Hearing Control app.
