What has always stopped me from getting a hearing aid was the price. At $1000 apiece, it was not ever something I was going to be able to afford. But a New York TImes article led me to understand that the average person with age-related hearing issues does not need the expensive aids and could get a high quality hearing device for around $500. So when I decided that I needed to make the sacrifice one, I did my research on Amazon and found the Empower Hearing Amplifier. It got great reviews, so I figured it was worth a shot.
Simply put, this hearing amplifier is great. It’s small, discreet, and comfortable. It works really well very easy to adjust the volume. It has four settings to adjust for ambient sound and/or high levels also very easy to set. It’s so nice to be able to listen to TV at a normal volume, or to actually hear people at work when they speak in lower tones.
I had to get in touch with customer support when something was missing from my shipment. They were incredibly nice and helpful, and the missing piece (a cleaning brush) arrived rapidly, with a complementary set of batteries for my trouble. Honestly, if you’re having trouble hearing things and you’ve been thinking about a hearing aid but do not want to spend $1000, I could not recommend this product more highly.
