Earlier this month, Costco released the latest version of the company’s Kirkland Signature branded hearing aids in stores across the United States. The new Kirkland Signature 9.0 (KS 9) is, for the first time, being produced by Sonova, the parent company of the popular Phonak hearing aid brand.
The new Kirkland aids are a unique product made specifically for Costco that are “powered by Sonova technology”. The new KS 9 devices are said to be built on the Made for All (MFA) chipset platform, allowing for universal direct connectivity to Bluetooth devices.
