Our Story

EarQ began with an entrepreneurial spirit and a significant purpose: to help people experience the joys of hearing better through compassionate care and expert solutions.

This joy was something EarQ's founder, Ed Keller, witnessed each day as a hearing care professional. He saw patients come alive when they heard sounds they had been missing for years. He witnessed couples regaining their communication, and parents reconnecting with their children. Every patient came with a unique set of circumstances and it was imperative that they had a dedicated hearing care professional to guide them on their journey.

This knowledge encouraged Ed to form the EarQ Group in 2001. In a time where so many services were evolving into transactions, he wanted to ensure that patients across the nation still had access to the individualized care they need. EarQ providers are independent hearing healthcare professionals committed to compassionate care and expert solutions.
