I wrote to the iHear Medical company about the huge response I receivedwhen I offered my white paper about my search and subsequent purchase ofan in-the-ear hearing amplification device. They wrote back thanking meand offering anyone who purchases a device 10% off their originalpurchase. No I don't get anything for it.If you decide to purchase a hearing aid from iHear Medical and use the code:WELCOME10 (the word welcome and the number 10) you will get 10% off. I'd suggest you place your order by phone to make sure you understandeverything. They are very helpful and answer all your questions. Youcan still use the code with a person on the phone.So that's $40 off on a hearing aid priced at $400. No good for me sinceit is not retroactive. Drat!!!I am so used to it being in my right ear, I now forget it's there. Youwaste the battery if you fall asleep with it in, but I've done that. And the day before yesterday, I took a shower and forgot it was in myear. I remembered just in the middle of washing my head (not much hairthere). Real quick I took it out and put it in a towel. Still workingfine.I've pretty much stopped asking people to repeat what they said or tospeak up a bit. I have noticed that people in Citrus Park do speakfairly loud since many people are hard of hearing. When you get out ofthe park and return home you really notice a difference with normalspeaking people who do not, as a rule, speak loud. Younger people whospeak softly or grand kids can all be heard without thinking they aremumbling. Where I really notice improvement is hearing people who areNOT facing me so I can't see their lips. I hear them just fine andrealize that I was doing a lot of lip reading before or asking people toturn around to speak to me. I never realized my shoestrings make noisewhen I tie them, but they do.The only other thing I have noticed is that certain TV stations do notbroadcast audio very well. I still have to turn the volume up on thosestations. Others I can keep the volume very low and hear just fine. Sharon, who has much better hearing, also has to turn the volume up onthose stations. Just poor quality broadcasting since the speakers in myTV are the same for any show we watch.The only sound that I now hear, that bugs me, is the sound of thekeyboard as I type. Sometimes I take the hearing device out so there isnot so much clatter as I hit the keys.The world has a lot more noise but that's just fine with me.
I am so used to the HD being in my ear now, I forget it's there. I noticed real improvement hearing people who are NOT facing me, I realize that I was doing a lot of lip reading before
iHear HD is a solid product, I love it. I have been wearing this device for three months, the quality of sounds is consistent. Since they are invisible, no one knows I am wearing hearing aids at my work. I feel very confident in the meetings and talking to people in many different settings nowadays because I can hear clearly and answer questions. This device changed my life personally and professionally.
Ihear HD - great value, easy to set up at home, and make changes to its settings. Very small, easy to forget its even in your ear - other than you can hear! I have moderate hearing loss (3 on the Ihear test) - My ear doctor says I can hear right at normal conversational tones, and did not recommend a device. I was there because my wife was exhausted with my "whats?". I guess she talks slightly lower than that! And the TV volume, and not following conversations when we are out, and not know what the waitress asked...It was time to do something. This is my first hearing aid, so I can not compare it to others, but I could not emagine what else you would need a hearing aid to do. It did take me a few adjustments to get it just right. First, I had too small of the tip on it, so I had occasional feedback. I wore it like that for a bit more than a week, and my ear canal (or just my brain) adjusted, and I was able to fit the next bigger size. That resolved that.Next, with my "3" on the hearing test, I am at near max on the volume. I had to tweak it a bit, so that it did not feedback, but was still loud enough. Very quick and easy to do. I use mine more than the "documents" suggest for battery life - like when I get up, until I go to bed (my wife talks to me in that range, so I want to hear her!). The high volume, and longer wear times, I am using a battery every 6 days, so a "month's supply" is 18 days for me. I wore it at Disney, am guessing the noise canceling was working overtime, and that battery did not make it 3 full days. The batteries are not expensive, just noting that I use about double what the documentation says.
They are wonderful. I could not afford hearing aids and could not hear Church services or much of anything else for that matter. I've had years of sinus infections that have resulted in debilitating hearing loss. The sound is so natural. I've actually been hearing so many things that I didn't remember. The service at ihear has been amazing. My son found this company and gave me the hearing aids as a gift. The best gift i think ive ever received, other than my children. Marion Phillips
I came across the IHEAR website and was interested in the product. Being a little skeptical of the price vs. quality, i did some in depth research. After 2 weeks of reading everything I could find I decided to give them a try. I figured with the 30 day return policy it was worth trying them out. I also ordered the programming kit. When they arrived I hooked them up and started the programming process, which is very easy to do. I did reprogram them 3 times, but the subsequent times were only for fine tuning. In short, I would recommend these to anyone. The quality is excellent and it is a great value. All things eventually wear out, when that happens I will absolutely reorder another set. A very satisfied customer!!
I admit, I was sceptical at first basically because of the price. But WOW! Really happy and glad I found them. Easy to put in and take out, programming is a piece of cake. Put my Starkey's and America Hears aids to shame. Still need to do a little tweaking but I am happy! Andrew in support has been extremely helpful and is a pleasure to deal with. If anything changes, I'll be back to update the review but right now I'm a happy camper. Oh, and the FDA approved hearing test was a snap too. Thanks again IHEAR for making affordable hearing aids! - Howie
I have used 2 other brands before I started using Ihear. They both were the most expensive and high-tech aids. I used one of them for 2 yrs with yearly renewal and the other Star for almost a year. One cost 4k/yr and the other 6k. Each brand has advantages and superiority against one another. Ihear has each and every superior future of the other 2 brand. Such as natural sound, easy to place, easy to replace, better hearing anywhere. Ihear eliminates the defects of other 2 brands, such as uncomfort, not reliabliaty, cost..... This is a very personal issue, it is important to feel happy with the aid for a user. To my experience Ihear is great and it is way ahead of others. It works.
It took some time to find the right adjustments but after 5 months I could not be happier with the results. I have severe hearing loss in both ears from my career as a professional firefighter and have been told that in the ear devices would not work for my condition. My ihearhd exceeds my expectations but not without plenty of trial and error. With good customer care and patience I feel most individuals would benefit from this product. I've been using them since January.
I just have to say thank you to iHear Medical. I have been wearing hearing aids off and on for the last 10 years. I have always been dissatisfied with pricing and appearance of most hearing aids in the market today. I have been waiting for years for hearing devices that are invisible, affordable, and that work properly. All I can say is OMG!! iHear Medical fullfilled all three requirements. I am writing this review not only for iHear Medical, but also, for those people out there who are wondering if these things really work! I am completely stunned that all three of my requirements have been completely fulfilled. I poured Ginger Ale into a glass of ice, and for the first time that I can remember I actually heard the fizz!! I was completely amazed! Then I walked into my bedroom, which is hardwood floor's. I never heard them squeak before...I thought, oh no, now I need to get a new floor-Lol. I was so excited to try this device, however, I have a very small ear canal and was afraid they would not fit. I decided, to take the chance because of the money back guarantee. Wow, am I glad I did. I want to encourage everyone that has any doubt about these devices or questions whether or not they work as advertised....you won't be sorry !!!! They are absolutely incredible and I will recommend them to everyone I know that needs hearing aids!! Thank You iHear Medical Team for a Job well done.
