    5 months ago I replaced my hearing aids with Costco's Brio 4 model. It was mediocre in performance (but please read on as you'll see why), with 3 trips back to tweak, adjust and complain about the myriad of issues that plagued me. I have another month to return them for a full refund, and was seriously considering taking them back. However, I had a lot of misgivings about the person's ability who fitted me with this aid, so I tried another Costco store to see what they could do. I made the appointment with a different Costco store. After talking to the person answering the phone, explaining my problems with the aids and the store that issued them and we made an appointment for 5 weeks out. (They were that busy, but certainly worth the wait!)

    Today was my appointment with the new store. I explained my problems, and the poor responses of the original store to my new hearing aid expert. She listened and even apologized for the other store's incompetence and then downloaded the program from my hearing aids to her computer. She found and corrected several problems with the way it was programmed, made other changes that I wanted that the other person said was not possible and made suggestions for changes based on what she felt would be best for my situation. Wow, what a difference! I walked out of there with a totally different opinion of the hearing aids. I am very happy with the performance and I am ecstatic that all my needs were addressed and corrected. What was a 2 star review from the original experience has earned them a 5 star review now.

    I had a Resound hearing aid I bought three years ago from an audiologist. It quit working. I saw an online discussion about Kirkland's Signature 10, the price was $1,000 cheaper than the Resound and it had more features. When I went to Costco's hearing center in Tampa, they gave me a much more thorough ear examination and I ordered from them. The Signature 10 was delivered in a week and when I went back to Costco to pick it up I was surprise they also had a very detailed computerized setup procedure. The procedure played sounds from different directions in the sound booth and customized the aids for the best sounds.

    I have now had these aids and am very satisfied. I also got a TV amplifier ($125) that broadcasts TV to both hearing aids. It works great. If I want to watch/hear a program and my wife is sleeping, I can turn the TV sound off, then turn it up on its box to as loud as I need it. Sometimes, I want to be able to hear my wife in the earpiece next to her and listen to the TV in the other ear. Easy to do. I like this aid so well, I am tempted to buy a second one for after this one has worn out. This also works well to answer the phone and talk to someone using the hearing aid's microphone. Tip: It works best in this mode if you do not hold the phone up to your ear--you can put it on a nearby desk or table for the clearest sound for the person you are talking to on the phone.

      The people at the Costco hearing center are quite helpful in helping you get adjusted to the hearing aids. However in my case, it required several visits before the sound quality was good. I find the aids a bit uncomfortable to wear and with the mask situation now, almost impossible. Every time I remove the mask, the unit falls out. Costco is very good about cleaning the aids and I try to do so each time I am in a Costco store, wherever it is.

      While the Costco Hearing center customer service is phenomenal, their Kirkland brand hearing aids are not. I have worn hearing aids for approx. 20 years; with a condition of substantial hearing loss. I’ve had aids of 2 different brands prior to receiving the Kirkland (Rexton) bluetooth/ rechargeable hearing aids. I have had these aids for almost two years. While I enjoy the capability of streaming directly into my ears, the streaming is not continuous. It often cuts out, playing in one ear only, switching ears, or cutting out completely in both ears. I’ve taken them in for adjustments, and the staff has been very courteous and patient.

      My next trip to Costco, I will be leaving the aids with them to send in to the company. I initially, I had ordered the battery-powered aids, which were completely covered by our insurance. I found myself replacing batteries daily. I exchanged them for the rechargeable model—for which I paid an additional out-of-pocket expense. I find myself wearing these now only during Zoom mtgs, phone calls from our car, audio books while hubby watches football, and tv news—all of which I stream directly to my ears. For general all-round hearing, I wear my old hearing aids (Phonak, purchased through a major hospital healthcare system; and at a substantially higher cost).

      Costco Kirkland (Rexton brand) hearing aids just do not provide the clarity I get from my older aids. I’ve been back to Costco for adjustments, with no satisfactory result. I will say—and I’m assuming it is spoken in desperation—that I’ve been told my ears are not compatible for hearing aids...so what am I to do about that???? Even with the fancy menu of hearing options: automatic, complete with directional microphone; listening to music; outdoors; playing music; television; etc...these aids do not effectively deliver ( and the ‘music options’ are horrible—music sounds tinny. I actually use this option while in the car; as it seems to amplify a bit better than other options...but then the road noise is louder as well—just cannot win).

      While streaming, the rechargeable aids are only good until about noon; at which point I place them back on the charging unit until the evening news. I just cannot recommend these hearing aids. I may add, it's also frustrating to those around me when I constantly respond with “what?” while wearing them (many times hearing a disgusting response like “I thought you had hearing aids”). I went with Costco this time, due to ratings in Consumer Reports.

      The Costco experience was so easy to get tested, ordered, and fitted for my hearing aid. I probably qualify to get hearing aids through a VA hospital, but after reading about how Costco was so highly rated in a leading Consumer Magazine, I elected not to go through the VA, thinking Costco would have the latest and greatest hearing aid products. I'm very happy with my "ears" now.

      AN ABSOLUTE NIGHTMARE. At first, we were quite happy with the hearing aids, and the service at Barrhaven Costco. All was well until one of the hearing aids started acting up less than a year later, and that is when the nightmare began. Being over two hours from Ottawa, we mailed in the hearing aid to be fixed. They did nothing that we hadn’t done ourselves, and said it was ready anyway. Covid had begun by then and we were in the first wave. Everyone was in a panic, and Ottawa was fast becoming a hot spot for infections. But, we drove there, picked up the hearing aid, and drove straight back, all the while feeling very vulnerable.

      When the hearing aid started acting up again during the third wave, we talked to them about mailing the it in again. However, we are seniors and were not prepared to drive to a ‘hotspot’ again, especially with the ‘stay at home order’ in effect. After many talks with the manager, it was agreed that we could pay for a courier to pick it up and return it to us. However, when we called to get the correct postal code, and mentioned what the manager had told us, we were informed, in no uncertain terms, and very forcefully, that there was no way it could be returned to us, by courier or otherwise. We would be forced to pick it up. Since we are not prepared to do that, we are pretty much up the creek.

      So, for anyone out there who needs a reliable hearing aid, please do not do what we did. We thought we were saving some money and getting a good product and service at the same time. We were dead wrong on both counts. The hearing aids are rubbish and the service is non-existent when you need it most. Do yourself a favour and buy locally from a reputable business. That is what we will be doing in very short order.

      I've had several sets of hearing aids but decided to get the latest with a great price. The automatic function does not work or is very erratic. Speech even in a small room with few people is garbled. Every time my iPhone has an action or I look at a photo or message, the hearing aids go bonkers or off. I have an echo around me and I can hear my own chewing. I had these adjusted after 3 weeks and they are still bad. My phone link has to be uploaded constantly and so it is slow for me to adjust to new situations. I've kept my prior ones when I can change the channel manually. I will be returning these; The new auto program does not work.

      3 pair of Siemens hearing aid in past (2 from Costo) & all were great. Costo sold me my 4 pr which were Resound & had nothing but trouble in last yr. Technicians at Torrance Ca. Store are great but their support leaves something to be desired. Will be going back to hearing aid only business in future.

      Service is impressive and, unlike some other hearing aid companies I have dealt with, continues after the devices are purchased. The number of sites available across the country for service outshines any other hearing aid company and it has the benefit of being in a one stop shopping location.
