Date:4/20/2008

SALT LAKE CITY, April 2, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sonic Innovations, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNCI) a U.S.-based manufacturer of digital hearing aids, is celebrating its 10-year anniversary during 2008.

The company is the largest publicly traded U.S.-based hearing aid manufacturer. More than half of the company's revenue is generated from outside the United States (company revenue for 2007 was $122 million).

"In just 10 years Sonic Innovations has leveraged its world class sound technology to become one of the largest hearing device manufacturers in the world. Sonic Innovations was among the first companies to implement digital technology into hearing aids and is a leader in digital-signal processing," noted Sonic Innovations CEO Sam Westover. "We continue to be a pioneer in our industry through continuous improvements in sound quality, by significantly decreasing the size of our hearing aids and through the development of new features that make our hearing devices simple to use and easily adaptable to the active lifestyle."

Sonic Innovations was founded upon sound technology from three internationally renowned scientists -- Douglas Chabries, Thomas Stockham Jr. and Carver Mead -- each with a Ph.D. in engineering. Chabries created algorithms that led to better speech-understanding in noise. Stockham, known as the "father of digital recording," developed mathematical methods that are used today in playing DVDs, processing Hubble space telescope images, improving medical images and creating better hearing aids. He is the only electrical engineering professor to be awarded a Grammy, an Emmy and an Academy Award. Mead is recognized as the father of large-scale integrated circuits. He has been involved in the start-up of over 2
