Sonomax announces final milestone success

NEXT STOP CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW IN LAS VEGAS

MONTREAL, Dec. 30 /CNW Telbec/ - Sonomax Hearing Healthcare Inc. (SHH:TSX Venture) announces that it has completed Phase V, its final milestone in the development of its off-the-shelf, self-fitting, custom earpieces. The company is now in a position to roll out its prototype V4(R), establishing Sonomax as the world's only producer of instant self-fitting custom earpieces.

"All of our products and technologies have been validated and we have now produced a game-changer in comfort, sound quality, and hearing safety for all industries and companies whose products have an in-ear component." said Nick Laperle, Sonomax's President & CEO. "Delivering outstanding frequency response, the soft and pliable earpiece material continuously adapts to the changing shape of the ear canal, which permits long periods of comfortable and safe use throughout the day."

Added Adam Schwartz, Sonomax's COO, "I can't say enough about our dedicated R&D team; they accomplished a miracle. Their technological breakthrough changes everything; it makes us a world leader in sound isolation with a stable technology that is cost competitive, scalable for mass market consumption, and whose breakthrough characteristic, the V4 automatic fitting system, enables any consumer to make a high performing custom-fitted earpiece on-the-spot for themselves. While the Sonomax R&D team will continue to test and adjust over the next few months, this has now solved the only impediment to Sonomax's expansion technology becoming ready for mass customization."

With the final milestone behind it, Sonomax's licensing team has now lined up over 20 meetings with major OEMs at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas from January 6th to 11th 2010. The objective of these meetings will be to start the process of selling a series of non-exclusive technology licenses to a carefully chosen, limited number of highly successful consumer electronics, industrial and military companies representing a cross-section of multi-billion dollar vertical markets and subset product categories.
