Eargo hearing aids

Eargo hearing aids

Eargo sells hearing aid devices for individuals with mild to moderate high-frequency hearing loss. All models feature four sound profiles that are easy to save or switch between for the user. Unlike typical behind-the-ear hearing aids, Eargo’s devices are nearly invisible and amplify sound in front of you rather than behind you.

Eargo's open-fit hearing aids feature silicone Flexis that allow for increased airflow, letting frequencies pass more easily into your ear and giving you more natural sound amplification. The Flexis also prevent the plugging sensation commonly felt when using traditional plastic hearing aids.

There are four Eargo hearing aid models:

  • Eargo Neo HiFi boasts a beautiful, state-of-the-art design for mild to severe high-frequency hearing loss. Eargo Neo HiFi lets you experience full-bodied, rich sound just as nature intended and is completely concealed inside the ear canal. The company offers a two-year warranty with the Eargo Neo HiFi. The Eargo Neo HiFi device is controllable through Eargo’s mobile or web app, which makes it easy to adjust the settings. You can also consult with an Eargo hearing professional to help find your perfect sound settings via the mobile app.
  • Eargo 5 is designed to provide personalized hearing solutions. The Eargo 5 app includes Sound Match technology, and it lets you schedule a call or speak directly to a hearing professional. You can also choose one of four presets or completely customize your sound settings to your preferences. The hearing aids have a battery life of up to 16 hours and take around 2.5 hours to charge.
  • Eargo 6 has a 16-hour run time. Sound Adjust technology reduces background noise and automatically adjusts to loud environments. The device comes with a portable charging case that provides power for up to three days and two sizes and two styles of medical-grade, silicone petal tips. It’s also water-resistant for up to 30 minutes at a water depth of less than 1 meter.
  • Eargo 7 The Eargo 7 is a rechargeable, in-the-ear hearing aid designed for mild to moderate hearing loss. It features Sound Adjust +, which adjusts your sound profile based on the environment, noise reduction and feedback cancellation technology. The device also comes with a charging case that provides up to 16 hours of use on a single charge..

The devices are all rechargeable, and purchase includes a charging case that allows you to charge your Flexis on the go, allowing you to go days without ever having to plug into a wall.

Eargo prices

Eargo costs anywhere from $1,650 to $2,950, the total price of the hearing aids will depend on the model selected. Prices are for two hearing aids and include a charger, plus extra Flexis and wax guards. Financing is available, and Eargo offers a 20% discount for veterans and military members and a 10% discount for health care workers, first responders and teachers on Eargo 6 and Eargo 7 models.

How to buy Eargo hearing aids

Eargo designs products for individuals who experience mild to moderate high-frequency hearing loss. The company uses safe, remote hearing checks, phone consultations and online ordering so you can purchase Eargo products from the comfort of your home. Eargo does not require outside hearing tests or prescriptions. Instead, the company relies on its own clinically validated hearing check to evaluate your hearing in loud settings. Visit the company’s website or call Eargo directly to purchase your preferred device.

In addition to four hearing aid models, Eargo sells replacement Flexis, replacement wax guards and chargers on their website.

Eargo staffs a team of personal hearing professionals (PHPs) that can help you evaluate their products and find the right selection for your hearing needs. Access to a PHP continues after purchase, for as long as you use the device. These professionals can help you with the fit and feel of your device, settings, and any questions that come up along the way. After purchase, your PHP will set up a welcome call to help you get started.

Original review: May 30, 2023

It took about a week to get used to the new Eargo7s. I have reduced hearing in the mid to upper frequency ranges and I also suffer from Tinnitus. I've been to many "specialists" and all they can do is tell me I have to live with it or buy these ridiculously expensive hearing aids to "mask" the noise. We are talking about $7000 each. Lately, I had tried the Nano brand because they were a gift from my wife. But the Nano's did show me what an in-ear canal aid could do. Plus they were larger than the Eargo and NOT as clear or comfortable. But for $300 a pair, they were much less expensive. All others were external and interfered with my glasses, plus the battery changing nightmare. My mother had big buck hearing aids. She was always changing batteries and they always had "feedback." She was so deaf that she couldn't hear the noise, but everyone else did.

So, I researched it because I knew I needed something better than the Nano's. So I returned them for refund. I came across the Eargo's and researched them on U-tube and social media. Even though these are expensive, I decided to give them a try and why NOT with the 45 day money-back offer. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!! It took a while to find a comfortable fit, but I settled on the medium open florets. After 2 weeks of use, while using the factory settings, I did the hearing test. Twice because the first attempt wasn't in a totally quiet environment. THE SECOND WAS AT NIGHT WHEN EVERYONE WAS ASLEEP, IN A CLOSED ROOM. Wow.

Well, LET ME TELL YOU.! These are fantastic. I enjoy the different settings and filters for the different environments. Plus the fact that these ACTUALLY DO LAST ALL DAY FOR UP TO 16 HOURS. How do you get that much battery in such a tiny device? (You should partner with Samsung, so my phone would last.) LOL

Plus now that I've been wearing them every day, all day, I don't even notice them. I actually have to reach up and make sure they are still there! The charging case is also way cool. How inventive! I happy with my investment. So in closing I WILL get back to you down the road with updates. Please keep up the GREAT WORK!

    Original review: April 18, 2023

    My recent 5-10 year memory was always asking my family to turn up the TV volume or asking them to repeat what they said or to start annunciating or projecting their words. Repeated heeds to get my hearing checked fell on deaf ears. As a project engineer in the expanding biotechnology industry, I found myself having daily Face-To-Face project team and staff meetings. Soon I developed the strategy to arrive to the conference room early, stand, and when the most soft-spoken person arrived, then I would sit opposite them. Soon I realized that this strategy didn’t always work well as sometimes meetings would involve multiple others who never learned to project their voices when speaking? My company HR Department had invited a local audiologist from Hearing Life on site for people to sign up for hearing screenings. I was invited to the office for a more comprehensive examination.

    Functionally the hearing devices made a big difference in my ability to hear and comprehend conversation. However, my holdback was that all they offered was over the ear devices. I have short grey hair, wear glasses, and a mask when I work in our cleanrooms. The average age of our workforce is 35, and I wasn’t ready to begin fighting the ageism battle yet. I then realized my need, but as an engineer, I decided to look for better technology. I then received a mailer from Miracle Ear for an inside the ear canal device. I made an appointment, had another exam and then was told that I would not qualify for an inner canal device, because it was not programable and only served as an amplifier. I felt that this had only been a “Bait and Switch” to get me into the office? They also offered a device that fit into the ear canal, and was molded to the outer ear, but stuck out of the ear like a cancerous growth.

    I then tried Starkey Manufacturing, but their inner ear canal devices were only battery powered and I was told that I would need to change out the battery weekly. I was determined to keep looking. Then I either received a postcard, an email, or saw an ad somewhere from EARGO touting their Neo HiFi hearing devices. I ordered some dummy devices to try them on for fit. I tried them on for size and wore them for weekend days at a time (in spite of having no electronics nor hearing benefit) to determine how my ears would adapt. This was the best I found in my better hearing search, if the actual functioning devices provided any hearing benefit? There was a 30 or 60 day return policy, so I figured that I’d have nothing to lose?

    I ordered my devices, and they came within the week. I charged them up and first tried them over the next weekend. Immediately I could hear my steps shuffling across the floor and the doorknob clank as I went outside. It was spring on Cape Cod and I could not believe it? For the first time in 5 years since moving to the Cape, I heard the birds chirping. I continued to use my EARGO Neo HiFis for the next three years without incident. I personally produce a lot of ear wax and oil, so I developed a nightly cleaning routine that went above and beyond EARGO’s cleaning recommendations. Every night I would use a damp (not dripping wet) Q-Tip moist with 70% rubbing alcohol and wiped down all 16 electrodes on each device and charger to ensure the best contact between the hearing aids and the charger.

    Even this thorough cleaning did not always ensure immediate charging success. So I would brush, wipe, and Q-Tip clean with alcohol again. I learned that if my devices were not adequately charged over the night, they were useless the next day. I received a postcard advertising the newest generation EARGO7 devices. As soon as I saw inductance charging, I knew that alone would save me 5-10 minutes a night in my cleaning routine. I have been using my latest generation for EARGO7 hearing devices for 2 weeks now and I love them: The induction charging, the finger taps to change the hearing programs (compared to the hand taps with the Neo HiFi devices), the enhanced functionality of the EARGO7 cell phone app, and the On-The-Go personal customization of the devices. The EARGO7 devices are more functional than I ever imagined.

    Eventually when technology catches up, I hope that EARGO can introduce WiFI to the hearing devices; but for the present time they still provide the best value on the market. I especially like driving with the windows down during springtime on the Cape. Now without fear of the program of my left ear device repeatability changing, as it had with my Neo HiFi devices. I must also add that the new EARGO hearing test Sound Match is way more thorough than any hearing test that I ever had in the audiologist’s office.

    The only thing it is missing is a soundproof booth. Compared with the technology offered by other players in the hearing device industry, EARGO is hands down the best. Their devices are the most concealed (no one knows that I wear hearing aids, but my family and others I know that struggle with hearing loss and I have shared my EARGO experience with). EARGO 7 devices are the most functional and programmable and are 2-3 times lower cost of others in the hearing device industry.

    My experience with EARGO 7's. I have mild (lower frequencies) to moderate (higher frequencies) hearing loss that I ignored for years and got my first pair of CIC's at 48; something I wish I did many years earlier. Having been a Lyric CIC user for 3 years, and an Oticon CIC user for 10 years, both of which I was very happy with, except for the cost, I was excited to see EARGO come to market, mainly because of the cost difference.

    I trialed the EARGO 6 and liked the small size, rechargeability, and but for me, it fell short in making the sound adjustments quick enough or not at all when I'd change the environment I was in (for example, from home to a restaurant). In addition, there were too many times when I couldn't get enough sound volume to hear the higher frequencies of a family member speaking in the house, so was asking for people to repeat themselves. I was ready to give up on EARGO and go back to prescription CIC's until I saw the EARGO 7 coming out. I inquired with EARGO about trialing these and was given that option.

    The EARGO 7 has been excellent so far. I've used them for a month now and have experienced a vast improvement in sound quality and the ability of the 7's to adjust quickly to different sound environments. I'm not experiencing the warble sounds I'd hear when turning on the microwave or opening the car door. The EARGO app is a huge improvement with the addition of the sound adjust+ feature, which I use the emphasize speech option periodically when at meetings or noisy restaurants. The sound quality of the 7's seems to be very close to what I was experiencing with my prior prescription CIC's, so I am keeping the 7's.

    A couple of other things to note: The EARGO customer support team has been fantastic, working with me through some earlier issues with the 6's and the extended trialing of the 6 to now the 7. The clinical team assisted me in setting up my EARGO's to match a prior hearing test that I had done by an audiologist which I thoroughly appreciated.

    We appreciate this thorough and honest review. So glad you are happy with your Eargo 7s!

    Original review: Jan. 10, 2023

    I grew up in the country, shooting extensively. As a result, I have moderate high frequency hearing loss and significant tinnitus as diagnosed by my ENT. I’m 64 now, and my hearing has grown worse over the years. I bought over-the-ear hearing aids years ago, but they are problematic because I wear glasses. I also wear a mask often because I’m susceptible to Covid (due to lung damage from pulmonary emboli). Wearing my hearing aids with glasses and/or a mask was very uncomfortable.

    So, when quality hearing aids became available over-the-counter, I started looking for an aid that was entirely in-the-ear. I found several options with a Google search. After that, I relied most on reviews from BBB, Consumer Reports, and CNET to narrow the choices. In the end, Eargo was the obvious choice based on the technology, support, and user reviews. I did the online hearing screening, spoke to a sales representative at Eargo, and placed an order.

    It’s very fair to say that Eargo 6s have changed my life. I can hear all the outdoor sounds I’ve missed for so many years…bird songs, crickets, frogs, squirrels rustling in the leaves. I no longer say “What?” constantly to my wife and friends. I keep the TV volume at a low 8 to 10, compared to the 25-30 that ran my wife and two dogs to the other end of the house. I can hear and participate in conversations. And my tinnitus isn’t as noticeable. I suppose that's because my brain is receiving sounds that weren’t making it through before.

    I had no adjustment period, as far as fit or discomfort, because I’ve worn hearing aids before. The support calls I’ve received from my Eargo audiologist, Cheryl, have been friendly and helpful. Within a week, I recommended Eargo 6s to my brother-in-law, who also has hearing loss. He purchased a pair and is wearing them daily. He opted to do so without Eargo support and is happy as well.

    It's great reading that the Eargo hearing aids have been life changing and you're hearing so many sounds that you have been missing for years! We appreciate the recommendation and you sharing your Eargo experience!

    Original review: June 13, 2022

    I shopped for at least three years for hearing aids. My hearing loss was classified as moderate, but I knew I still needed help. More and more people were having to repeat themselves to me. When I landed at my audiologist’s office for an assessment and recommendation, I told her I really wanted an in-the-canal device, so it would not be seen. She immediately told me that I would not like it and the sound would not be good. “She’s the expert”, so I bought the wrap around ear type device. When I went to my fitting, I IMMEDIATELY didn’t like them. They were flimsy, would fall off the back of my ear, and worse…you could see them because of my short hair. So, I was stuck with them.

    I wore them a few months, but after having to constantly reinstall a new battery, and the fact that anyone would notice and see that I was wearing a hearing aid, I quit wearing them. I’m really not vain, it’s just that it was so conspicuous. It always felt like there was something fragile on my ear that the wind would blow off at any moment.

    Speed up a couple of years and after studying and researching the best I could, I ordered an EARGO sample kit. They were actually “the” devices, with no circuitry or “guts” to them. You could put them in your ear, and feel the fit, and the invisible effect of the in-the-canal type device. It was great, immediately. After calling EARGO and asking a million questions, and then calling back again to ask more questions, I finally placed my order. I was scared. I had already spent thousands of dollars. What if this was just another purchase with “pie-in-the-sky” promises?!!!! “It probably was”, I thought.

    My EARGO 6’s came quickly in the mail! I was excited, but very skeptical. They had promised my complete satisfaction or my money back. They had promised if I had any problems, there would be a technical person or audiologist to help me through any problems. They had promised they would exchange any device that wasn’t working properly. They had promised they would “hold my hand” through any problem, with a warranty of three years! It was too good to be true.

    SO...I put them in the self-charging cradle to “sync” and charge for a few hours. I literally was pacing the floor with excitement to put them in. The little “ready” light let me know “it was THE time”! I put them in each ear and heard the voice that they were “ready”. BAM! Instantly, the sounds in the room were beautiful! Immediately, I noticed how rich voices and music were. I noticed the higher tones and the lower tones that I had been missing were there. It felt like when you see those people who put on color blind glasses for the first time. They are in awe of the colors. That’s sort of the same thing I experienced, only with sound.

    I was assigned my own audiologist, Dr. Ashley **. She reached out to me and made an appointment to walk through the installation, syncing, and setup of my devices. She not only was kind and patient with me, she was aware of my audiogram, and helped me make program adjustments that were designed specifically for “my” needs. She has since, been available by phone or email at any time I needed her. Ok. You may say, “everything went well for you, you’re just lucky”. No, I had several problems and she resolved them. I even had a problem she wasn’t satisfied that really resolved an issue. She had new devices sent to me to replace the ones that had the problem! I really couldn’t believe the service and the immediate action that was taken!

    I wanted to sit down and write this sooner, but I also wanted to wait and see if EARGO was too good to be true. Nope. They’re really as good as their promise, and I highly recommend them. The sound is great, they’re invisible, their service and warranty promise has been kept, and I love them! I’m writing this because I needed this kind of information from a user to help me in my decision making process. Thank you Ashley. Thank you EARGO.

    Most of these over-the-counter hearing aids don't have a return system. Eargo has 45 days. If you aren't satisfied, you can return them. I tried some cheap stuff in the past and they never worked. I decided to go quite a bit more expensive and they seem to work. I don't have the feeling they're ever going to fall out. With the other hearing aids, I always had the feeling that I could lose them at any time. I work and live in an outside environment. I couldn't deal with the idea of always worrying about hearing aids and functioning in my outside environment.

    I read about Eargo and researched it, and then decided to go with them. The rep told me the insurance was gonna pay a certain amount but they didn't. So I didn't want to keep the hearing aids and I returned them.

    The Eargo team invested time in testing my hearing, explaining and calibrating to my needs, and providing ongoing training on how best to use and care for my devices. After 15 years of “behind the ear” hearing aids with dangling tubes and new batteries every week, I have found audio nirvana. My Eargo amps are the bomb and they fit perfectly inside my ears! I can now hear with clean audio fidelity that enables easy switching to differing environments. Am using Eargo hearing aids from 6:00AM to 11:00PM every day with power to spare! They stay snug in my ears all day long. I just pop my hearing aids into a small ergonomic case and they are ready for the next morning. I frequently work in loud noises and I love the “Sound Adjust+” feature of my Eargo hearing devices. After a few seconds they automatically adjust the decibel level to a more comfortable sound but I can still hear everything I need to hear. This technology is awesome!

    My mom is not used to using the cell phone app to control the hearing aids and there was too much echo. She has an ear canal that is smaller than normal people and maybe that was the trouble. The Eargo hearing aids didn’t have the right fit for my mom who is in her 80’s. She had the hearing aids for about three weeks and I’ve returned it. I went to where I purchased it and the reps had to get some confirmations from the supervisor. It was quick after that.
