Research with SHOEBOX

At SHOEBOX, we help researchers include hearing testing in their projects and clinical trials. Together we are working to better understand hearing and hearing-related outcomes. We are helping to ensure better access to hearing care. We are empowering more individuals to take part in hearing testing. And we are connecting patients to the care they need.

Clinical Validation

SHOEBOX has been clinically validated for use as a diagnostic audiometer, even when testing is performed outside of a sound booth. We have been included in various studies on the efficacy of tablet audiometry, conducted at some of the world’s leading institutions. 


Our Scientific Advisory Board

Our Scientific Advisory Board is comprised of world leaders in audiology research and clinical practice. Their mandate is to provide strategic advice on emerging issues and help to provide guidance on research, development and product decisions helping SHOEBOX in the interest of sound science and exemplary clinical care.
