Much more than just ear impressions… We care about your hearing!
>> Click for Covid-19 Protocols <<
At Sensaphonics, we care about so much more than taking ear impressions and selling in-ear monitor products. Our primary focus is YOUR hearing health. In fact, we are the only major custom earphone manufacturer with an on-site audiology practice, our Musicians Hearing Clinic.
Some of the biggest names in live music trust their hearing to Sensaphonics. Whether it’s an office visit while playing Chicago or a backstage appointment after sound check, our audiologists are ready to help. We even do “house calls” – going out to the venue to serve our clients. We can do on-site testing, ear impressions, even in-ear SPL measurements! Call us in advance to set it up.

Dr. Shannon Switzer
As Director of the Musicians Hearing Clinic, Dr. Switzer's passion for both music and audiology makes it easy for her to connect with musicians of all backgrounds and soundscapes. A native Vermonter, she completed her Bachelor of Science at the University of Vermont in 2014. She then moved to Chicagoland to attend Northwestern University, where she earned her Doctorate of Audiology in 2017. Dr. Switzer's goal is to empower her patents through education, so be prepared to learn about how your incredible hearing system works and how your brain processes sound. She is grateful that musicians trust her with something as special as their hearing, and she is excited to help you keep your ears safe.
