    As stated, the audiologist was very knowledgeable, attentive and helpful. Programming is top notch. This was a replacement of the 9.0 as I chalk it up to mandatory masks for losing the previous. Program's clarity is better than the 9.0, but I chalk that up to the audiologist. My only negative is the charge life. When fully charged, I barely get one day on the original program, less when I boost the power for meetings, movies, etc. In addition, the induction charging is flaky... Hearing aid will say fully charged, but sometimes, an hour later I am under 50% battery life. So, for the price, I can give it 4 stars. 5+ for service and 4 minus for battery life and the hit and miss charger. You can do a lot worse.

    In August 2022 I got Rexton BiCore hearing aids at Costco. My first pair which I got there several years ago (Kirkland 8.0) still worked fine, but I wanted to upgrade to rechargeable (to use them more with my iPhone) & telecoil (to hear better at concerts and plays). The Rextons were a little more expensive than the Kirkland 10.0, but reviews said they had better battery life, and the charger was much smaller. I wanted maximum battery life so I could more frequently stream audio from my iPhone and iPad.

    After I got them it took 3 more visits back to Costco to get them sounding and fitting to my satisfaction, but that wasn’t any different than my previous pair. The service I get at Costco is great, the technician I always work with is friendly and knowledgeable. About the only thing I would improve if I could regarding Costco’s service, is being able to get an appointment more quickly.

    The hearing aids themselves work nicely. They are comfortable and the sound quality is good, although they don’t seem to do a better job of helping me decipher speech in challenging situations - but I wasn’t expecting they would. I’ve never tried using them for more than a day on a single charge, but so far I haven’t had any trouble with battery life. The charger is easy to use if it’s kept plugged in, but it was tricky at first to figure out how to get it to work from its internal battery - the charger manual isn’t well written.

    The iPhone app is easy to use and somewhat useful, though I wish it could do more fine adjustments independently for each ear. You certainly can get by without it. The hearing aids do pair with my iPhone and iPad through Accessibility settings, but switching between the two is often glitchy. I contacted Rexton and Apple about this. Rexton blamed Apple, and Apple backed that up, saying they are aware of the issue and it should be improved in the next major iPhone/iPad update. Rexton email support has been helpful and quick to respond.

      I'm preparing to purchase my third set of hearing aids in the past 15 years. Based upon my personal experience I am better off purchasing Costco hearing aids, instead of from a private supplier. I did the latter about 15 years ago with two major benefits that Costco does not offer, 1. Free batteries for life & 2. At their request periodic hearing check-ups and adjustments with the aids. Now in all fairness, Costco will do #2, however in Tucson you need to book weeks or months in advance. My second set just gave out on year six since the Costco purchase. I'm told at Costco that ReSound won't do repairs after 5 years and quite frankly that makes no sense unless they have determined that a hearing aid is not repairable.

      A couple of years ago I sent one to ReSound with a bad connecting wire, paid a little over $100 for the service and it worked fine for another three years. The 'no repair' policy after 5 years, in my opinion, is a method for ReSound and/or Costco to sell more hearing aids. Regardless, Costco will still be my choice for the new pair simply because my first pair from the 'Brand X' store was $5,000, my second set from Costco was half that price and it had more features, and my new pair will be $1,800. I see pricing at the Costco Hearing Centers at about half that of the other suppliers.

      I have worn hearing aids for many years and got my $5K pair from an ENT group. They were never that great yet I didn’t know it! That’s because I had nothing to compare them to. One stopped working about a year ago and it cost $500 to fix it. Then both mics in them stopped working. No way was I going to pay $1000 to fix them. So I looked around for another pair. Everyone recommended Costco so I made an appointment. Had to wait 2 months to get in. Anyway, the audiologist at the Avon IN store was simply outstanding. She really knew everything and that’s not a statement I say a lot. Professional and friendly. Got my aids about 2 weeks later and, WOW, I could hear again! Better than when I first got the other pair. No contest. I got the Kirkland KS10s. Highly recommended. Oh, and Costco? Give that audiologist a much-deserved raise or bonus.

      I'll make this short and to the point. I just replaced a pair of nearly $6,000 hearing aids with one of the five brands Costco carries. I had my previous hearing aids for about 7 years and they stopped working. I chose the Jabra Enhance Pro PM's, being familiar with the brand from owning a few Jabra headphones. GN bought Jabra and manufactures the hearing aids. GN also has been making the high quality high end ReSound brand of hearing aids for many years. The hearing test I took at Costco showed the same type of hearing loss from a test I took at my audiologist some years back.

      I ordered the Jabras and went back to Costco two weeks later for the fitting. I am incredibly satisfied with their performance. I saved a few thousand dollars buying these at Costco and am very pleased after wearing these for a few days. All in all, the Costco choice of hearing aids, the price and the service and care for my hearing was top notch. A special shout out to Ashley who was my hearing aid specialist at the Costco in San Dimas, CA.

      Long Story, but we had problems with replacing a hearing aid destroyed by family dog, twice. First time Costco was great about replacing the HAs at no cost. They did not cover the second incident. And we have no complaint with that. However, Costco was completely unhelpful in ordering a new aid. They required us to make three trips to the store. The patient is wheelchair bound, making it difficult to travel 120 miles per round trip. Costco would not budge. We decided to use a local provider, and I am so happy that we did even though it cost us more money. We had to replace both aids as opposed to just replacing one aid at Costco.

      While at the new provider we discovered that the original set from Costco was underpowered. We also learned that the hearing specialist did not know their own product. Simply stated: the local provider knew his product and offered much better service than Costco. It was more money but worth it to get better service and hearing aids that work properly. The patient has not heard this well in over a decade.

      I've had my Rexton hearing aids for a couple months. I've had nothing but problems. To be fair, the aids seem to be working now, but they won't connect with my iPhone app. So controlling them is a huge issue. The charger stopped working after a couple weeks. I had to make an appointment to turn it in and get a new one. Two weeks for the next appointment. So no hearing aids for two weeks. Costco Hearing Center canceled appointments, rescheduled appointments. Right now I'm awaiting an appointment that is two weeks out to simply read a QR Code with my phone. Costco Hearing is really frustrating - I expected better of Costco.

      I've been a customer of the Costco Hearing Aid Store in West Springfield for three years. The product is superb, the cost is even better and, best of all, is the service that people like Richard ** offers. Couldn't be happier.

      I've been wearing devices for six years, and they have greatly improved my hearing. About five months ago I switched to Costco; hence, enough time with my new devices to honestly recommend the Medicine Hat Costco and the Rexton hearing aids. First Costco has a selection of high-quality hearing aids to select from. I switched to Rexton's and I appreciate their performance, rechargeable batteries, and many of their App features. Second Costco had excellent prices (over 50% less from my previous clinic). Third, a big shout out to the staff: Receptionist Sheri's helpful positive attitude, and Tiffany's friendly and relaxed manner while using her knowledge to test, set up, and educate me on achieving the most out of my devices.

      I am using my 3rd set of hearing aids from Costco. They are Kirkland Series 10, which are more technologically advanced from previous models. My ability to hear and distinguish speech and music are greatly improved with the new innovations. The staff that aided me in my purchase of these was helpful and caring and very well versed in the product. After-purchase service for changes and adjustments is excellent. Kudos to the staff at the Billings, Montana hearing aid center.
