Hansaton Hearing Aids

About Us

Hearing is our Passion

At HANSATON, we are driven by our passion for people, design, and innovation. We share this passion through our cutting-edge HANSATON products and services.

Focusing on you

Our goal is for everyone who needs hearing aids to be able to find ones they can wear comfortably – both physically and socially.

Innovative by Tradition

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.

Design with a purpose

Great design pairs together remarkable beauty with outstanding functionality.

HANSATON strives to create great designs so our clients can easily use their hearing aids and be proud of them.

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.
