Wouldn’ t it be nice to for those who have hearing loss to properly hear without having to turn up the volume?
This special speaker helps people who have age related hearing loss and acquired deafness.
The Mirai Speaker is not your traditional speaker that uses a vibrating cone structure to create sound. Our speaker uses a unique curve shape to create special wave vibrations that a person can hear better. This special speaker utilizes properties similar to bone conduction which is why those with age related hearing loss can properly hear. Furthermore, this speaker has had effectiveness with those with acquired deafness from accidents, medicinal side effects, and illness. The “Miari Speaker” brings hope to those who have previously given up on the potential to hear. We want to make everyday life more pleasant so we ask that you please test the Mirai Speaker.
It is now possible for people up to moderate hearing loss to effectively hear at normal volume without the need of hearing-aids. When several people are watching TV, no one has to bear the burden of the volume being either to high or too low. Everyone can enjoy the volume at permissible level. Regardless of hearing capabilities, the “Mirai Speaker” is more clear for anyone to hear. Set up is easy! Just connect the included audio cable to your TV.
We have conducted tests with 140 people with various causes of partial deafness. 80% of subjects said that our speaker was effective. We have found that there is some notable effectiveness with those who have hereditary deafness (deafness from birth). These are all results from our testing with the Mirai speaker.
We are currently collecting new data from a third-party research project at a medical institution where we aim to further explore the capabilities of the Mirai Speaker.

“Let’ s make the world happier through sound” is the simple idea which led to the startup of Soundfun Corporation in October of 2013 from Minato, Tokyo.
Our philosophy is to specialize in one-of-a-kind products that helps to improve the quality of life. We are currently helping those who have become hearing impaired to be able to hear sound again through the development of our “Mirai Speaker.” It is common belief that once one loses the full functionality of hearing that it will never return but with use of our patented speaker technology, hearing sound is once again resurrected. We want to advance this technology so that is becomes useful and helps everyone.
After creating our prototype speaker we tested about 140 individuals who have lost hearing due to age, accidents, illness and medicinal side effects. Our results showed that over 80% of individuals commented that their hearing functionality had returned. Additionally, testing through Tsukuba University Technology Dept. showed some effect on individuals that are born with deafness. They said they could hear a little more through our speakers than traditional speakers.
In other third-party experiments results were very alike. We lent our “Mirai Speaker” to a nursing facility which showed similar results. When connecting our “Mirai Speaker” to TVs, 80% of listeners said they could hear better. The staff at the facility explained that communication was much easier because patients could often hear PA announcements without their hearing aids.
Another aspect of our company is providing “Comfort Audio.” In recent years with new technological innovation, electronics such as TVs have evolved greatly in quality. On the other hand, innovation in audio has seen few changes and has been left behind.
Soundfun is eager to revive and emphasize sound quality. We would like to offer High-Resolution audio such as vacuum tube amplifiers and speakers that incorporate simple and fundamental sound at an affordable price. Hearing impaired or not, we want all people to experience the joy of great sound.
We are aiming towards a made in Japan production in the northeast with plans of providing employment to people with disabilities. Our future goal is for our earnings to be partially donated towards those who have hearing impairedness.
Soundfun will continue to research, develop, and advance products that will improve the quality of life and bring more smiles to people’ s faces. We thank you and hope for your support.
