After graduating from University of Iowa with his bachelors and Illinois State University with his Masters of Arts degree in audiology, Michael quickly immersed himself in the vibrant Chicago music scene. Recognizing that musicians were suffering from severe overexposure and lacked awareness of hearing health and protection, he decided to focus his practice on music and founded Sensaphonics in 1985.

As president of Sensaphonics, Dr. Michael Santucci provides audiological consultation and customized hearing protection to many of today’s top music performers. He has dedicated his career to being a tireless advocate for hearing health within the music community and the world at large.

Today, Dr. Santucci continues his hearing conservation efforts through Sensaphonics, spearheading the development of innovative new products and technologies while operating its Musicians Hearing Clinic. He shares his unique knowledge and expertise by mentoring graduate audiology clinical externs within his own practice, and through his Sensaphonics Gold Circle seminar, teaching audiologists how to work with professional musicians and in-ear monitors.
