100% One-on-One Communication Equality: Zero Bluffing, Zero Frustration, Zero Communiphobia

A Letter From Our Co-Founder and CEO:

We want to give everyone 100% one-on-one communication equality. We are passionate about liberating people who are deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing from bluffing their way through conversations, frustration about what was said, and Communiphobia because they cannot communicate their thoughts easily. Our passion leads us to create the best face-to-face communication technology to give rich and invigorating communication experiences for people who are deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing.

sComm helps people who are deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing interact with each and share their professional and personal lives’ most meaningful experiences. The way a moment of barrier-free face-to-face conversation with another person is more meaningful than being isolated, sharing our collective experiences makes our lives richer and more fun.

We create the world’s most ubiquitous communication devices.
You have the right to communicate, and our UbiDuo makes that possible. Lastly, you can learn more about sComm below. Enjoy!
Communicate freely,

Jason Curry
Co-founder and CEO

About Us

sComm is a worldwide leader in face-to-face communication technology for the deaf/ hard of hearing community. With the next generation UbiDuo, the privately held company continues to revolutionize the way more than 37 million Americans with hearing loss communicate with the rest of the world. sComm is relentless in its efforts to transform face-to-face communication for deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing people and will not rest until it has achieved 100% one-on-one communication equality.

Our Story

The UbiDuo was born out of pure frustration. David and Jason Curry, father and son and co-founders of sComm, sat down for breakfast one morning and struggled to carry on an in-depth business conversation, free of misinterpretation and confusion. Enough was enough. David Curry came up with the idea for the UbiDuo that day, sketching on the family’s kitchen whiteboard his vision for a simple, yet revolutionary product that would forever change the way he communicated with his deaf son.
"When I saw him draw that design out I knew that was the device that was going to change the world for people who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, and hearing."
-Jason Curry, Co-founder and CEO

The family sought to make their dream a reality by obtaining two Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants from the National Institutes of Health in 2005. Through the grants, they were able to test the feasibility of the product, determine if it improved face-to-face communication between deaf and hearing people, further identify product features and develop the first UbiDuo prototype. Just like that, one family’s efforts to achieve meaningful and treasured personal connections through communication brought the same life-changing triumph to millions of other deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals across the world.
