Original review: Feb. 25, 2022

I have been really impressed with the Eargo 6. I love the fact that they are almost invisible, very comfortable and I can hear so much better. The batteries last all day before needing recharged. I also like the different programs and the water resistance. I really have no complaints to report at this time. I previously had behind the ear hearing aids and the Eargo 6 works so much better. Wearing the my old behind the ear type hearing aids, I always felt self conscious and a little embarrassed to wear them because I felt like I was just broadcasting that I can’t hear. They were uncomfortable when wearing a mask or sunglasses and the mask always snagged on them and pulled them out.

Original review: Feb. 23, 2022

I have worn other hearing aids for approximately 8 years. There was little adjustment available, and they were not very comfortable. I have been wearing my Eargo aids for over a month and must say that I am very impressed. They are so comfortable that several times at bedtime I have forgotten that I was wearing them. Michelle, my Audiologist assistant with Eargo, has been very helpful with customizing the different programs, so that I have a wider range in volume settings. Example: I usually have them set at the normal program. But if I switch to TV mode, I have a higher volume range than normal, and if I switch to restaurant mode I have a lower volume range than normal. This makes the aids very flexible for any environment without losing the customization settings that I had set up when I first got them.

Overall, I am very pleased, and so happy I went with Eargo. My insurance company (UHC Medicare Advantage) has already reimbursed me $2,000 of my purchase cost!

I like that Eargo hearing aids fit inside the ear and they're not over the ear. The over-the-ear ones were just impossible with the mask requirements. My Eargo hearing aids are also pretty good. Reportedly, you can change the program by tapping the unit in your ear and initially, I was able to change a program. But now, the hearing aids don't seem to be responding at all to any taps while I'm wearing them. So I have to go to my phone to change a program. I can live with it but then, if they're under warranty, perhaps I could get a replacement pair. Other than that, I've had to make two contacts with Eargo's reps and they've both been very positive.

I checked out Eargo and liked the fact that their Eargo 6's are water-resistant. They are invisible, and they don't mess with my mask. I have the Eargo 6 now and I can watch TV with my wife without blistering her eardrums. I was tired of everybody having to yell to get me to hear and understand them. My hearing in my left ear is more severe than Eargo can reach because I went to an audiologist the other day and they tested it. Although it got somewhat in the area, they got really close on the right ear. But the left ear couldn't. I cranked it up before. I had been wearing it on 2 and it helped. I cranked it up to 4 and now I can hear every lip smack and everything else I didn't hear. I hear a lot better. My audiologist was trying to sell me other types of hearing aids. We decided to stick with Eargo because although it didn't reach it in my left ear, it does a lot better than I've ever had. I also like the functionality, style of it and everything else.

Dave was my rep and he was awesome. He answered all of my questions. In the store, I have a gal that's assigned to me and I can only make an appointment with her to talk to her. It's always through my work hours so I missed one of her calls. I don't feel like I can call and ask any questions. I don't like to text and email ‘cause I'm not a real good speller. I'm just not comfortable with that at all. But she's always helped me and answered my questions whenever I talked to her. She said that I can call and talk to somebody else, too, if I had a question.

My hearing aids are very comfortable in my ears. A couple of days ago, I was using the open pedals. I switched to medium because they were most comfortable. I could hardly tell the hearing aids were in there half the time. I did lose on my caps off the backside of one of mine already. These are the night covers. Also, I have problems with my charger not charging one of my Eargos. Once, it was my left then the other time, it was my right. It was because those little stems get straightened out and it wouldn't sit in the cradle right so it did end up charging up. I'm also still learning about the app and I would probably utilize it some if I can figure it all out. I like the simplicity of the app. That's another thing that guided me toward Eargo. I also watched review after review and commercial after commercial and even comparisons with other hearing aids.

They were good with follow-up and answering questions when I called. However, I wish it was easier to follow the instructions or do what they said I needed to do. I had trouble doing that without getting back in touch with them. I still haven't been able to run the hearing test. I had to use my phone to download an appropriate program, and the one I downloaded didn't really work. There was no real guidance there relative to which one I should pick. I don't think they've updated that app. They should give clear instructions relative to that app.

Originally, they told me the small Eargo size restricted addition of more features. Then about a year later they come out with two new models that would solve my objections. They offer no upgrade policy. So I offered $1000 to upgrade, which they turned down. They expect me to pay twice for lifetime audiology support and sales commission.

Original review: Feb. 11, 2022

Since I got my Eargo hearing aids, I can feel more involved with conversations and I don't miss things as often. I still do to a certain degree but what I'm getting used to is it's not the same as having nothing. The sounds I'm picking up are the sounds that I don't even hear myself. When I get out of a chair, I hear all kinds of cranking and joints are making all kinds of noise, which I didn’t notice before. But the hearing aids are doing what I want them to do. Eargo's reps are also excellent and they all seem to be working with me in answering questions and solving any issues.

I know there's a learning curve it's just a matter of time and getting used to certain things. When I tap the hearing aids to adjust the volume, it doesn't work. But there were times when I'd like to be able to kick up the volume a little bit or reduce it a little bit, and that range seems to be limited. But since this is my first set of hearing aids, I really don't have expectations other than being able to hear better. But there is one thing that Eargo says is an advantage that I look at as a disadvantage. When you work with them, you never see anybody in person and that model sort of bothers me. I would rather have the other old-fashioned model. But I understand the way it could be a pretty good advantage for the population not to hop in the car, get the appointment, get out of the car, get to the appointment and so forth.

Original review: Feb. 10, 2022

Like most things in life, the device worked fine. I heard fine and I could tell the difference. So, if I bought the hearing aid for that reason, which I did, I would be happy with it. But I had itchy ear and once, it got stuck in the canal and I had to go see a physician friend of mine to pull it out. That was when I decided that living with what they called moderate to severe hearing loss, which I thought was more moderate, was easier than using a hearing aid. I also had a hard time with the remote as it didn't work at times. I tried to increase the volume and it wouldn’t work. I called Eargo up and they gave me some excuse but they couldn't give me a good solution.

Finally, one of the Doctors of Audiology called me and said that he was going to program this hearing aid for me and I didn't have to use the remote anymore. But that was not what I paid for. I paid for the fact that I could program it myself. At certain days, I need it to be loud. On other days, I need it to have more background noise or I needed it differently. So, it seemed like this was not working as it should be and they were not willing to admit it. At that that time, I decided to send the hearing aid back. All in all, I was satisfied that the hearing aid was doing its job of increasing my sensitivity to the spoken word but I was unhappy with the side effects. I called Eargo, they sent me a return slip, I sent it back, and within seven to 10 days, the money was returned to my account. They lived up to their guarantee.

I like Eargo a lot better than others. I've tried to get more sophisticated hearing aids and those didn't work. It was an extremely expensive set of hearing aids I got from the VA and they just never could get them to get it right. I had one that gave me so much feedback in one ear. The story was it was the way my ear canal was configured and I never could get rid of the feedback. My Eargo hearing aids are easier to use. Right out of the box, you plug them in and stick the device in your ear and it works like a champ. The fact that it charges in the case is pretty convenient. Also, they don't have to hang over my ear. The product is a good value.

I have had Eargo for more than 2 months. They are everything Eargo said they would be. I have been wearing other hearing aids for over five yrs. This is what I think of Eargo. My wife can only hear out of one ear because of years of flying. When I told Eargo that I only need one I was informed you have to buy a complete pair. I like them so much I will be buying the pair to get one because they really work.

I was pleased with the size of my Eargo hearing aids and the fact that they were in-canal. They also appeared to have good support and their reps have been very helpful. But I'm not happy with my hearing aids and I was going to look to return them. I have another call scheduled for Thursday, but I'm running out of my time period of 45 days to return them. So far, I'm not getting the results that I hoped for as far as the experience with the hearing aids. They amplify many other things that I don't need to hear any better, which pretty much drowns out what I do need to hear. I'm told that it's a matter of my brain adjusting, because I'm not used to hearing those things at the amplitude I do, but so far, it hasn't been working. My big problem is in conversations when there's background noise and that it has not improved much at all.

My wife bought the Eargo hearing aids for me. She liked that they were less likely to be seen and the price as well. The first guy that I talked to was very friendly, knowledgeable, and into it to get it done. I got a welcome call and the lady was very nice. However, they have no hours over the weekends to get ahold of them. I've been needing to talk to them for a week or two. The hearing aids have got modes that you can select like restaurant, phone, or TV. I thought that either the product would pick up on where you're at itself and change, but it does it one out of 100 times. Their videos even show that you can touch the device and change at least the volume but that does not work. That was the one thing that my wife thought she was getting. It's been made clear by Eargo that, no, this product doesn't because we wanted a small, discrete device.

The cost of Eargo was very reasonable and working with the reps was pleasant. My husband doesn't hear too well and if he doesn't have them in, he can't even hear his phone ring. But he loves them and finds them easy to use. The app is on his phone. The Eargo team has already had two follow-up calls regarding how they're working.

The Eargo hearing aids were not the right fit for me. My hearing loss was somewhat mild and they're made for older people who have more severe hearing loss. I also suffer from Tinnitus and they did not help with that at all. But it was easy returning them and they offer a 45-day money-back guarantee. I was within the 45 days.

The devices were very expensive at $2650. So, by the time I got to day 40, I knew that they weren't going to work for me. I called Eargo back and they took the hearing aids back. The only problem was they kept $250. I'm going to call customer service and ask why they kept that. I'm hoping I can get that back too. But, I definitely recommend Eargo to anybody. They were very courteous and easy to work with.

I have a more moderate hearing loss and it's an annoying one. I called Eargo and received the nicest and finest service I've ever encountered on the phone. The service person I spoke to answered so many questions for me and convinced me to give this a try without being pushy about it. I learned a lot from her. I love everything about the hearing aids such as the design. I wore them every day. I got feedback in my ears and I wasn't able to make them work. I returned the hearing aids last week. I spoke to someone at Eargo who couldn't have been nicer and told me what to do.

I love the comfort, convenience and performance of these hearing aids, particularly when wearing glasses and pandemic face masks. BUT it is very disappointing that one hearing aid is completely dead after 16 months (beyond the 12 months warranty period). At $2,040 per pair, it's beyond discouraging to have one hearing aid die and be unrepairable. Throughout the 16 months, the EARGO audiologists I have spoken with have been very helpful and customer service has been very good. The hearing aid worked for 8 days after draining the battery for 16 hours and recharging it. After the 8 days, it quit for good. Further attempts to clean the hearing aid with compressed air, drain the battery and recharge were unsuccessful at restoring the hearing aid. I'm very sorry the product lasted only 44% of the expected 3 years.

I had problems in the beginning because the hearing aids weren't working right. I had techie kids who tried to help me but they couldn't get into the app and they were having technical problems with it. For a month, Eargo was kept telling me there was going to be an update on the software. Eventually, Eargo got their end straightened out and I was able to download the app. The hearing aids are fine. It's just they're hard to get used to and they make my ears itch. Other than that Eargo has their stuff together. Customer service was also very nice and helpful.

I'm a retired federal employee and Eargo's ad was saying that was free to federal employees. My hearing aids were fine when I first started wearing them. My hearing's much better but I'm only able to really wear one in the right ear. Having them both in doesn't work for me. I have not been wearing my Eargo lately. I have a sinus infection and when it gets behind your eardrum, it affects my hearing. Other than that, I'm satisfied with everything. People need to have their hearing checked so they know which ear they really need the help in. I've been tested and my hearing was not as good in my right ear as it was in my left ear. That's how I knew that I needed help.

Original review: Dec. 14, 2021

I started looking at hearing aids not for the hearing loss but it was the symptom of the hearing loss, which is called tinnitus. It is a constant ringing in your ear 24 hours a day. Doctors told me there was nothing that would fix it and I gotta learn to live with it. I said that I was gonna figure something out. I researched and I found Eargo to be very highly rated as far as solving tinnitus. It was literally half the cost of a Miracle-Ear so I said that I was going to purchase it and see what happens. The tinnitus went away the moment I put the Eargo hearing aid in because I could hear. Eargo looks cool. I like the level of technology that they provide as far as having the charger, which is slick, as well as the app to control everything so I'm not having to manually touch my hearing aid if I wanted to control anything. It's all done via the app. T

The other great thing is you don't need to go in for any of this. When I talked to my audiologist about hearing aids, he told me not to go to a retail store because they are paid to sell the top of the line best of everything. I don't know what I don't know and that I’m going to get sold a bunch of stuff I don't need. He told me to do my research.

The online options with Eargo were good or I could come see them. They didn't have a preference either way because they don't get a commission on selling. So, I went online and ordered and the haring aids were shipped to me within two business days, which was amazing during all of the shipping delays we're having in this crazy world. They got me what I needed within two days, which was phenomenal. It was all online, which I liked. There was a hearing test option you could use to customize your hearing aid and I tried that but it wasn't for me. I went to the presets that they already have built-in and I love those.

Value equals money spent over expected outcome. So, I got a good value. I spent appropriately what I'm seeing online and at other stores what I should have spent. For example, one Miracle-Ear hearing aid that doesn't have the capabilities that this hearing aid has costs $4,000 for one hearing aid. I spent 2,950 for two. So, I rotate every other day to lengthen out the time.

I’ve gone out with friends and when I told them I've got tinnitus, they said that they’ve got it too and have been living with it for years. I pulled my Eargo charger out, which I always have with me, and I gave them my other hearing aid, and they put it in. They said the tinnitus was gone. I’ve sold six pairs and legend should be Eargo's term when they talk to me as a customer. I'm a 43 year old sales professional and my appearance is very important to me as far as my role is concerned in the corporate world. Walking around with a hearing aid, you end up with some sort of stigma. It's not like wearing glasses. I don't know why ears are different than eyes, but they are. And so, no one's ever seen this thing and it has changed my life. I went from crying on the couch and I could not play with my son because my tinnitus was so bad to having my life 100% back.

The Eargo hearing aids were too big for my ears and they hurt my ears so bad that I could wear them one day, then I had to wait until the swelling went down for a couple of days before I could use them again. It just wasn't feasible for me, so I sent them back. But I would recommend them to anyone because that was my problem with my ears. They’re so small inside that they didn't fit but that they would be fine for anybody else. So I'm not really condemning the item.

Eargo 5. No experience with other models. I had hearing aids from an audiologist about 15 years ago. I used them for about three years. They never really helped me hear the human voice in the settings I needed. (Meetings, restaurants, family gatherings). They were accidentally crushed on a business trip. I never bothered to replace them.

The last couple of years I decided I needed to try again. I did months of on-line research and set up an audiologist appointment at the same University medical center. Since it was several months out I decided I would try the hearing aids from two or three online sources using the trial periods offered. I went with Eargo first since I really didn't want over the ear models as I would likely throw them across the room on my construction projects when taking off masks, safety glasses, etc.

I have had the Eargo5 for about 60 days. I am keeping them and not moving on to other products. I clearly hear the human voice with reduced background noise. That was my goal and Eargo5 has provided that to me. I have had an issue with the app staying connected to the hearing aids, but that has not affected the clarity and the ability to have conversations in multiple settings without a tremendous effort on my part (funeral, wedding, family gatherings, TV watching, small group conversations). Eargo customer service in terms of adjusting and becoming comfortable with the hearing aids has been excellent.

Customer service for a technical issue was not so well managed by Eargo. With the exception of one person early on in trying to address the technical issue who listened and provided a potential fix (which didn't work), the other "tech" support only asked if the issue had resolved itself and how about scheduling an appointment for another consult. I eventually figured out the problem (retired problem solver). No tech appeared to have training in approaching an unusual technical issue in a structured thoughtful approach.

I contacted Eargo and gave them a more detailed description and they have said they would look to address their failing. Good response. As for long term durability and use, I can't comment at this time. Cost was between $2300 and $2500 with a couple of discounts to get me there (on-line special at Eargo and military discount). Summary... Love the Eargo5 and I think you would too if you have moderate hearing loss.

I'm disappointed with Eargo because I paid a couple hundred dollars for a very thorough audiology test and I learned that the main problem with my hearing then was hearing the endings and beginnings of words rather than volume. And I don't know how to adjust that on my Eargo. At first, I thought the four programs were four levels of volume, but now I understand that I can program them for crowds, meetings and watching TV. I don't know how to change the volume though. I see treble and bass, but I don't like that you can only adjust it when your Eargo Hearing Aids are in their charging unit. So, I can't hear the adjustment to know if it's a good one. I would like a one-time in-person audiologist to help me deal with my Eargo. But I like the size that the hearing aids are nearly invisible. The price was very fair and I like the charging case. They're comfortable and don't go around your ear like the one I had earlier.

For the most part, I've been satisfied with Eargo. But I've had some trouble charging them sometimes and a few times when I was working, like pounding a nail with a hammer, the new level would keep going up and that was a little disconcerting. But one time, I experienced loud background noises and it seemed to work okay with that. Also, the people I talked to on the phone were good. When I first went on the internet, I didn't know there were several kinds and the portion I was watching was for a different model, which sort of bothered me. But I called and they explained how to get to the right computer window. Other than that, I went with Eargo because of those ads on TV saying postal workers could get the hearing aid for free. I checked up on it and my insurance company had to pay, but there was no out of pocket costs for me.
