  1. Just clicked on over to the links and they’re offering a subscription service for a $299 and $399 per ear devices? I’m skeptical big time that this is going to be anything other than another widget company looking to take advantage of ill informed hearing impaired consumers. “Advanced” technology at that price point? Well… what does “advanced” mean anyway. I guess when you expect the consumer to manage the testing, devices, and fitting all themselves, you can be super cheap! Who needs medical screening or actual in-person care to see if there’s wax in the ears or an untreated medical condition? Let’s just get consumers widgets that are cheap cheap cheap! Because cheaper is always better, right?

    Buyer beware, you get what you pay for.

    Would love to see a subscription service from major manufacturers with real advanced technology and professional service in an affordable manner rather than a widget company that is trying to obsolete the professional involvement necessary to optimal outcomes.
