  1. Default Hearing aid color for men

    I've seen a couple of threads talking about changing the color or paint the hearing aid:

    Because I'm about to buy my first pair of hearing aids I am exploring the possibility of Lime Green or Sporty Red. I believe it can be seen here:

    My wife already call this two colors weird. I am in my late 40s but I think beige, silver or grey already are boring, for one, and for two, I want everyone I'm talking to, or at least is close to me know I use hearing aids.

    So here two question:

    1. What of these two color you see for men: Lime Green and Sporty Red
    2. What is you experience about colors on hearing aid, let say on kids or young the color are cool, but adult, what you think?

    I vote for lime green because it is the more excellent!

    And, I always end up with boring ones. Although I'm happy that I waited for the Costco KS7s, the KS6s came in transparent purple which is what I was going to get. But in the KS7s the best colour is black so that's what I ordered. You're lucky you get these great choices!

    I also agree with you about letting people know you use hearing aids. I've just never had the slightest issue with this.

    Doc Jake, thanks for the link, I did not know about sweatbands, I'm going to save this link, I know I might use it at some point. However, instead to have this as a permanent color change I see it as occasion use. I wonder for example, do this sweatbands help at the GYM if I decide to use my hearing aids at the GYM.

    corona, if this KS7s is the same Kirkland Signature 7.0 at costco, I just check the colors and let me say it, you are right, taking out the black, all them are death boring.

    Doing my job I meet lot of peoples every day, I showed the two photo; green lime and sporty red, and asked this two guy who use hearing aids, one on his late 50, and the other on his late 60, the later one is a Veteran. Both of them said I probably pick the green one.

    TexasBod, I checked out the Forest Camo at the link, it was not making any sense to me until I saw you name. The environment create a fair enough color, I agree with you, and I think they should go ahead and put the Forest Camo color all over the hearing aid. Thanks for the link It will help to me for argument to my wife and her colors weird comment. Simple, I am not alone.

    Psocoptera,

    Isn't red fast and sporty? Like the racing car?

    Yes, it is fast, sporty and racing car, but also

    Red. ¨ Red is the color of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. ¨ Red is a very emotionally intense color. It enhances human metabolism, increases respiration rate, and raises blood pressure.

    And here this one

    Green. Is the color of nature and health. It represents growth, nature, money, fertility and safety. The color green is a relaxing color that is pleasing to the eye and is said to have healing powers.

    Absolute I like Sporty Red, but I do have a inclination to green long ago, On this first hearing aids I will go for Lime Green, however, the next I think will be all about red.

    Since you asked:
    1. It's a medical device, a barely visible one at that, not a fashion statement.
    2. Color is not even in the top 1000 concerns I have about a hearing aid.

    And since you stated your age as relevant, I am well over 40 and have been wearing aids since kindergarten.
