Hearing aid reviews are fundamentally different from reviews for most other consumer electronic products. The reason is because individual factors, like degree of hearing loss, have a profound effect one's success and overall satisfaction with the product. When purchasing a hearing aid, you'll need to consider more than just your hearing outcome. Hearing aids are manufactured with varying levels of quality; some hearing aids are extremely durable, while others suffer frequent breakage. Battery life also varies between models, and manufacturer predictions of battery life are often optimistic. By collecting feedback from consumers, we can get a better idea of real world product durability and battery life... Continue reading

This hearing aid has exceeded all of my expectations! I was a bit nervous to order online, but I am so glad that I did. The fit of the Alto is exactly like the hearing aid that I tried on with my local audiologist. I did two trials to compare the two hearing aids and I found that the Alto has a better sound quality than the other $3000 hearing aid. I am a music lover and am very pleased with the sound that the Alto produces - my ears are happy and dancing again. Thank you, Audicus!
I think with this price, Alto really do great improvement for my hearing, my hearing loss is severe to profound. I already wear hearing aid about 5 years different brand and with higher price than alto.. This alto comfort, produce clear sound and good noisy reduction.. But when the environment too noisy its better to put off your Alto, why? Because this alto really "brake" this noisy, so sometime we even don't realize that we are really in noisy environment :). Like see live rock music on stage. One my concern is, i live in Indonesia. Hope Audicus give better solution for fitting instead to send my HA back to US. Because it's not cheap, risk of damage and lost, and should take long time for shipping. Finally, i love my alto! From Danny - Indonesia
I have had 3 lots of different hearing aids in the past 10 years and the Altos are the best by a huge difference in a different range of hearing enviroments across the board. I dont have to adjust them they change automatically and are comfortable sound wise to wear.
Can't stress enough how good this RIC has been to me. I have had RICs in the past (never wanted to deal with ITE hearing aids... too pluggy) and I can say that this sound is the most natural and reliable of any I've tried. I'm only a week in but I think this is a true winner. Hosted a huge dinner party at a restaurant for my husband's 60th and not only did no one notice the hearing aids, but I also did not have to adjust them once and they assisted me thru the entire night (this was in a noisy steakhouse where I typically can't hear the waiter without HAs). Only one button for control but I actually like this. It is easier than with two buttons, which I've tried in the past (and on top of that it auto adjusts). Still in trial pd but I totally plan on keeping and recommending to all of my friends!
I am pretty happy with my Altos. At the time of purchase, I didn't realize that Costco had comparable prices and personal support. Either way, its worked out pretty well for me, but I might investigate alternatives next time. I have a mild hearing loss, and the hearing aids seem clear enough, and don't whistle. They help some in noisy situations, but not much.
