Southern Star Technology is a hearing loop company located in Midlothian, Texas. We are a small business that handles the complete consultation, design, installation, sales, and service to our valued customers. That means we will be personally interacting with you every step of the way.
We are Kevin and Callie Brown, the founders of Southern Star Technology.
We founded Southern Star Technology in 2014 after Kevin’s mother was stricken with sudden, profound hearing loss following an illness.
Her need to connect with others who could relate to her hearing loss led her and her husband to attend a “Say What Club” convention in Salt Lake City for the deaf and hearing-impaired. Along with the usual accessibility options such as caption and sign language interpreters, hearing induction loops were installed in all of the presentation rooms. She realized that this new technology, which allowed her to hear the clarity of speech through her hearing aid for the first time, was life-altering for her.
Armed with this knowledge, she flew back to Texas on a mission to spread the word and raise awareness of the unique benefits of hearing loops. That’s when we stepped in to help. Unfortunately, we found a lack of hearing loops installers in Texas, and close to none in the large DFW area. We experienced the negative effects that hearing loss can cause including stress, depression, and a feeling of isolation. This was an opportunity to help Kevin’s mother, but also MANY others by increasing community awareness of hearing disabilities, and making this affordable technology available to those in need.
