    Bottom Line

    Lucid Hearing’s behind-the-ear and in-ear hearing aids can accommodate multiple levels of hearing loss as well as different wearers’ preferences. However, you’ll need to visit a Sam’s Club to see if they’re worth the price.

    What is Lucid Hearing?

    Lucid Hearing makes hearing aids and related accessories. The company claims that its patented Powered by Lucid technology produces a more natural sound than traditional, compression-based hearing aid technology, and its multiple lines of hearing aids give you plenty of options for sound quality and comfort.

    If you’re having trouble hearing, you can also visit one of the company’s Hearing Centers to receive a free hearing exam from a state-licensed hearing specialist or audiologist.

    How does Lucid Hearing work?

    While Lucid Hearing’s services can begin with an online hearing assessment, this doesn’t replace a hearing test from a licensed professional, so the real first step is to schedule a hearing exam at a Lucid Hearing Center located within a Sam’s Club. These exams are free, but you’ll need a Sam’s Club membership to purchase Lucid products there.

    A hearing specialist uses your audiogram results to fit you to an appropriate hearing device and customize your settings based on your:

    • Individual hearing test results
    • Unique ear canal acoustics
    • Loudness preferences

    After your exam, you should be able to buy a new hearing aid in the store, but if you purchase a custom in-ear hearing aid, it may take up to 10 business days to get it fit.

    Lucid’s technology automatically adjusts to fit your environment. You should be able to move from a quiet environment to a noisy environment without having to change your settings manually. However, it can take several weeks to feel fully comfortable with your new hearing aids.

    Lucid Hearing products

    Lucid Hearing offers both behind-the-ear hearing aids and in-ear hearing aids that are custom-fit to your ear canal. These hearing aids are capable of multichannel sound processing, which the numbers in the products' model names refer to. In general, processing more channels is thought to increase sound quality.

    Lucid Hearing’s custom, in-ear hearing aids are available with 32-, 64- or 96-channel processors and in multiple configurations, including full shell, half shell, in-the-canal (ITC) and completely-in-canal (CIC) designs. You can’t get every processor in every configuration, though, so you may have to balance sound quality with other features that are important to you.

    Lucid Hearing’s behind-the-ear hearing aids come with different processors capable of handling 16, 24, 48, 96 or 128 channels. All models are available in beige, gray, brown, black or pearl white, except the 16-channel model, which is available only in beige. Product features vary by model, but most are equipped with voice prompts, data logging, wind-noise reduction and ear-to-ear synchronization.

    Except for the 16-channel model, all of Lucid’s behind-the-ear hearing aids also feature Bluetooth connectivity, so you can stream music and take phone calls from an iPhone or Android smartphone.

    You can also use the Lucid Hearing app on your smartphone or tablet to customize your behind-the-ear hearing aid’s sound controls, including:

    • Streaming audio equalization for treble, mids and bass
    • Ambient sound mixing
    • Selecting programs for various listening environments
    • Adjusting the volume
    • Controlling your left and right hearing aids separately
    • Checking your hearing aid’s battery level

    Lucid Hearing prices

    Lucid Hearing doesn’t publish the prices of its hearing aids, so it’s possible pricing differs from location to location. That means you’ll have to ask about the company’s prices when you go in for a free hearing exam.

    At the very least, you’ll need to pay for a Sam’s Club membership if you don’t already have one. At the time of publishing, membership ranges from $45 to $100 per year, depending on which tier you choose.

    Lucid Hearing FAQ

    Does Lucid Hearing have a warranty?

    Depending on the product, Lucid Hearing offers warranties that last for one to four years.

    Do Lucid hearing aids work with my phone?

    Multiple Lucid hearing aids are Bluetooth-compatible, meaning they can connect to both iPhones and Android smartphones for phone calls and music streaming. However, not all models have this capability.

    You can also customize your hearing aid settings with the Lucid Hearing smartphone app, which is available on the Apple app store and Google Play Store.

    How long do Lucid hearing aid batteries last?

    Lucid’s rechargeable hearing aid batteries, which are available as an add-on, last for more than a full day of use between charges, and they can be recharged wirelessly in two hours.

    Lucid hearing aids with disposable batteries will generally last longer, but exactly how long will depend on the model in question and the battery it uses. For more information, check out our article on hearing aid batteries.

    Is Lucid a good hearing aid?

    If you have mild to profound hearing loss, a hearing aid from Lucid Hearing is worth considering. Lucid Hearing offers a variety of hearing aids to accommodate people with different preferences, and features like Bluetooth connectivity and the company’s patented Powered by Lucid technology may sweeten the deal. Check out Lucid Hearing’s products to see if anything appeals to you, and if you like what you see, visit one of its Hearing Centers to get a free hearing exam and check out its prices.

    I highly recommend Sam's Club hearing aid department for anyone who may have a hearing problem. My technician, Jackie, was very professional, courteous, friendly and most of all she took the time to make sure that her goal was perfection. My life has certainly changed for the better since I have my new hearing aids. I just wish I had done this earlier and not waited so long. I now realize that waiting is the worst thing you could do, as your hearing will not get better on its own. It feels great to hear normal again. Thank you, Jackie!
