    I went to my ear, nose, and throat doctor and we did a comprehensive hearing analysis. I have a noticed hearing loss. When the time came to price out a set of hearing aids, they ranged between $5,000 and $7,300 for the pair. We researched on the net and found Embrace. I have the top-of-the-line hearing aids, AU3950 and it's a quality program that Embrace offers. I bought the set for $2,500, which is half the cost of the low-end hearing aids that the ENT specialist offered.

    I have the hearing aids hooked on the Bluetooth of my phone and it works pretty well. But I have one battery going bad so I'm not hooked up to Bluetooth right now. When one goes bad, the Bluetooth shuts off. The batteries I have are not rechargeable ones. A battery can last me from nine days depending on how long I wear the hearing aids every day. Sometimes I can't wear them because of what I do. That's not a drawback but it’s part of the program.

    The Embrace doctor is a fine lady and a good audiologist. She called a couple of times to follow up and see what's going on. I had a real serious tint where there was a tinny sound to the edge of every word and every sound I heard, whether it’d be paper folding or a plate being put on a table. The doctor was able to talk us through it. We went into the website and modulate the hearing aid so the sound was not as tinny. It was a lot better. My hearing loss was severe but I’m fine now. My wife doesn’t say something two or three times anymore. That’s a good feeling. I'm a senior citizen and if anyone asks me to recommend a hearing aid company, it will be Embrace. The product, price, and service are good.

      My old pair had in-between device between the hearing aids and the phone that you needed to use. So, I was looking for something with a direct Bluetooth connectivity. I tried a different company that I found online that the price is a little lower, but I wasn't satisfied with the quality and the Bluetooth did not work with my specific phone. The price looked reasonable, so I gave Embrace a try.

      When I first got the hearing aids, I was initially contacted to make sure everything was working well. I had some concern on how long the batteries worked with these hearing aids compared to my previous hearing aid, and got some suggestions. The second time, I missed them. They left me a voice message, but I never got back with them. Embrace would do a random call now and then. And if I was in the middle of a work call, I couldn't take it right away. They could do better on scheduling consultations.

      The more I've worn the hearing aids, the more I've gotten used to them. And previously wearing hearing aids, I'm more comfortable experimenting with these and trying to figure it out. I switched batteries and found out that buying the more expensive batteries was more expensive, but I was getting more time on one set of batteries. Also, the sound quality is good compared to my previous brand. It was a good sound quality also, but they were a lot more expensive. So, I liked that over that, and that was one of the items besides the Bluetooth connectivity that the previous pair that I tried out. The quality wasn't there either, even after a few adjustments. But I'm happy with these.

      The customer service of Embrace Hearing was good. But, once I got the device, I was not really told that the battery was going to last only three days. So that, for me, was misleading, but it was my fault. I could have made more research about it. The other thing is that once I got it, I thought it could be synced with an application and I downloaded one and I was never able to sync it. So I was not really told more about the hearing aid and its capabilities. But when I wanted to find out about any kind of insurance in case something went wrong or I happen to lose it, one of their agents very kindly replied with the information I didn't know. Embrace Hearing gives you the ability to buy another one for half the price if something happens to my hearing aid.

      I got used to it. Only at the beginning, sometimes I don't know if there was a delay because my understanding is that it changed the program based on the environment. And one time, someone was talking to me, but there was a TV on at a certain distance. I was more able to hear the noise coming from the TV than the conversation next to me. So at that point, I don't know if this is working. But that was the only situation. I'm satisfied and I really find it very useful.

      Original review: Feb. 3, 2021

      I explored the website a lot to see if it answered questions that I had. The thoroughness of the website was the thing that had me seriously consider buying an online hearing aid, which before would have seemed something I had to do in person. But I had a few questions before I purchased the hearid aid that I couldn't resolve by looking at the website and I talked to someone personally. I left a message and they got back to me. I was reassured on a few points I had. I would get them and try them out for a certain period. If they weren't to my liking, you kinda unwind the deal. Because it's an expensive purchase to make online without any in-person customization. So you have to feel reassured that even if you make a mistake, you can kind of backtrack a little and not feel that you were somehow wrong about your online decision. That was important to me, too.

      I did a little due diligence beforehand, so I knew the Embrace product was less expensive than other products that seemed to be similar. The hearing aid has been trouble-free. It does what it's supposed to do. It works for me. It’s also very simple to use, which I kind of appreciate, and it’s rechargeable. The responses from Embrace were quick, and the information was good. There wasn't a big sales pitch, and the hearing aid arrived quickly. I had a couple of follow-up phone calls that were initiated by Embrace. So that has been quite good.

      Embrace sent me an email with all sorts of descriptions of their product and the reviews from other customers are attached to it. I also spoke with Tim and he was quite convincing and answered all my questions. I was very satisfied with the answers he had given me. I purchased their hearing aids and one of the things that I'm fascinated by having them is the Bluetooth capabilities tied to my phone. Not only do I hear or can answer and speak without holding the phone to my ear, but I can also listen to music, radio, and pretty much anything on my cellphone without even holding it.

      The hearing aids are rechargeable, which I also like. I take them off, put them in the charger overnight, and the next morning, they're all lit up and I'm ready to go. Also, I have the app on my phone, which permits me to change the mode from one through four and also increase the volume if I want without touching the volume on a television set. It's great. And the customer service is good. I had an issue with my left hearing aid about four weeks ago, where I was getting continual static and the left ear. I spoke to a doctor and she was very pleasant and helpful. I returned the unit and within a week, I had a replacement. They replaced the inside and it's been working fine for the last two weeks. I'm a happy customer.

      They called us and I was satisfied with the questions I asked the team at Embrace. Then they said we could try them and if it was still in 60 days and if I didn't like them, I can return them. But we haven't had to do that. I'm pleased with them. I had another set for almost four years. Naturally, technology improves every year. This time with Embrace, I was thrilled because they programmed it into my phone. They also showed us how to program it on the phone, so if I wanna change anything. I had batteries before in the other one. This one is rechargeable.

      Pat, a rep from Embrace, explained things to me. My hearing loss was bad and I got a hearing aid for the inner ear. She came in and programmed it for me. Since then, it has been adequate though Embrace should come up with a way so you don’t have to buy batteries every time it runs out. The purchase made my marriage a lot better. My wife is not yelling at me as much as she used to.

      I wear the hearing aids in certain meetings I go to and when I go bowhunting. This weekend was the first time I used them for bowhunting. I went to the woods and I turned the volume way up on them, and I was amazed at what I could hear. I'm hearing the birds and the crickets. I really like them. But I noticed that when I have them in and I'm talking on the phone, there's something about them. So I have to pull it out of my ear and then talk on the phone.

      Embrace's customer service is okay, although a little weird. It's not as direct as if I went through an audiologist. I've bought three sets from them so far and my second set of hearing aids needed work so I sent them in. It took a long time to get repaired. I called Embrace and told them what was going on. They gave me the phone number of the service place, which was not Embrace. I called and they said they got to send the hearing aids to Embrace and then Embrace would send them to me. I told them I had spoken to Embrace and asked them to send the hearing aids to me but they said they were not going to do that. I got upset with them.

      They sent the set back to Embrace because it had to be programmed for my hearing loss. Nobody told me that. I wouldn't have gotten irate and I wouldn't have even called them if I had known that. There was that gap in communication that really left a sour taste in my mouth. But then, I got the hearing aids and they were fine. Also, the price is better. The hearing aids right now are on par with some of the best that are out there. I would recommend Embrace Hearing hearing aids to people.

      When I wear the hearing aids, they work better than the ones I had before this. I like that part. Embrace has little more options than the previous company that I used. For example, when you push the button on the hearing aids to change the different programs, it does both ears at the same time. The big upgrade for me is being able to work with the phone, so I could hear it through the phone. I also purchased the TV option, but I have not got that to work yet. So I have to do some work on that.

      The white box that you put the hearing aids in overnight to charge is somewhat difficult to open. I struggle with it every morning trying to open it and then, when I do open it, I gotta have a good grip on the hearing aids to pull them out of that box. That's not very easy for anyone like myself that has a little arthritis going on with the fingers. It would also be good if I can change the program with the emailing, so that the hearing aids start up with another program other than the one that's doing right now because I won't have to change it right away every time I put it on.
