Thread: Decent Hearing Aid

  1. Default Decent Hearing Aid

    Is this a decent hearing aid, or are there some similarly priced that people recommend?

    It's for my mom who has problems hearing the TV.

    Hard to read the hand writing on her hearing evaluation.

    If TV is the only problem, get her some TV Ears. To simplify, I'd give the company a call to make sure you get a model that's compatible with her TV.

    She has trouble hearing the TV, and she has some trouble hearing conversation if the speaker isn't directly in front of her looking at her.

    If you can help her out, I'd go with the ihearmedical ones. My leanings would be the Max model.

    The iHear are cheaper than the other. But that's my opinion too. For her medical stuff, I buy it, she pays me back over time. This will add to the outstanding balance.

    Does she live near a Costco? $1700 will get a set of the KS7 aids and someone to adjust them at Costco.

    By help her out, I meant with showing her how to use the hearing aids and helping getting them adjusted properly. I'm assuming she's elderly and not real tech savvy.

    $1700 is too high a price. The $600-$700 range is the budget.

    iHear prices are going up this Monday. You may also want to consider the Audicus Solo at $399/ea. https://www.audicus.com/products/hearing-amplifier-solo
