The Good Ear’s hearing loss treatment app is now out on the iPhone
We were really excited to hear about this!
The Good Ear is part of of a large hearing loss company and has used that experience to develop technology that can analyze and treat hearing loss. The app has now been accepted by Apple and The Good Ear has launched its “Better Hearing” app for iOS.
We are doing some testing but please post comments of your experience of using your cell phone as a hearing aid! Cheaper than a Baha or just cheap? Let us know!
Behind The Ear Hearing Aids
So here’s a great behind the ear hearing aid which is available from lots of retailers online. It’s the MDHearingAid Acoustitone PRO Hearing Aid.
Our impression is that this hearing aid is great for lots of different types of users. Some of our thoughts on this:
- Great for those who are deaf in one ear
- Better than an Opticon
- Battery performance is excellent
- Better built than hearing aids that cost close to $1000
So our verdict: Don’t spend thousands on ‘top of the line’ aids, get an Acoustitone!

So the Songbird Ultra has had a lot written about it and for those who read this blog, you know we have been covering every Songbird product out there from the FlexFit to the disposable. So we have taken a look at the Ultra which retails for $299.50 and this is what we think:
- Wearing them everyday recently, I hardly knew it was there
- Great in meetings with lots of people
- Very comfortable fit
- More expensive than other models, but more tailored to individual needs
- A con: you have to open the battery compartment to turn the aid off and I really don’t like this!
Hope this helps in your decision process! Leave me a comment if it did or didn’t!
The Flexfit disposable by Songbird is an interesting hearing aid as it is disposed after a period of use. We were skeptical of this product originally, but its energizer powered system has led to some interesting results. Apparently, it lasts about 400 hours and that’s good for 2-6 months depending on use.
Its features and benefits include that 1) Can be used in left or right ear, 2) No batteries to replace and 3) No maintenance required
So for $99, we think it’s worth a try!
We keep a close eye on songbird offers and there very popular 30 day trial has been extended to 45 days. Wow! Visit www.trysongbird.com to take advantage of this.
