About Us

HANSATON – Your Partner for the Future

We want to partner with you to share our designs and innovations globally, so more people can enjoy the delight of hearing.

People matter

Our passion is for everyone who needs hearing aids to be able to find ones they can wear comfortably – both physically and socially. We desire to partner with likeminded hearing care professionals to achieve this goal. Our unique hearing aids, and everything that is delivered with them, are designed with this goal in mind – to help you successfully meet the needs of your clients.

Design with a purpose

Great design pairs together remarkable beauty with outstanding functionality. HANSATON strives to create great designs so your clients can easily use their hearing aids and be proud of them. We want to put an end to the stigma around hearing aids – globally.

Building for the future

With the joint strength of Sonova’s and  HANSATON’s history, we have over 100 years of experience. We build on our rich German heritage of quality, design, and engineering and our Swiss precision and innovation. As we look to the future, we will continue to learn from our partners. This will enable us to push the limits of design and technology to meet the needs of current and future clients.

Join us on this journey and give your clients the opportunity to fully be in the moment. 

Day after day, HANSATON works to support hearing impaired people and provide hearing systems that help them do something that should be a given: hear their best every day.
For HANSATON, “hearing & emotions” are inextricably linked. From the first idea for a new hearing system, to aesthetic design concepts for the housing, to the people who wear the new system. Since the 1950s, HANSATON has numbered among the most consistently successful brands in the industry.

Foundation of HANSATON

Rudolf G. E. Fischer founded the company in 1957 and introduced the advanced hearing aids of an American manufacturer to the German market.

First HANSATON hearing aids

The development department set up by Uwe Fischer begins to develop its own hearing aids, which start to convey the philosophy of HANSATON in a unique way.

Third-generation family tradition

After completing his engineering studies, Andreas Fischer joined the family business as operations manager. Johannes Fischer follows a few years later and takes over the expansion of the global sales network.


In order to strengthen the HANSATON brand and support growth ambitions, HANSATON starts a strategic partnership with Sonova. By 2019 HANSATON is fully integrated to leverage Sonova’s cutting-edge innovations.
