Regarding Over-the-Counter Hearing Aids
Why should I pay more when I can get hearing aids over-the-counter?
Our devices are Class 1 Medical devices which require us to be licensed and regulated by the State. These devices are designed to address all ranges of hearing loss, while the over-the-counter devices are for self-diagnosed mild hearing losses only.
Most health insurance benefits are so robust that our devices often cost less than those over-the-counter.
