In Eargo Plus, Eargo has retained Eargo’s original, small design - modeled after the size of a conventional invisible-in-canal (IIC). The company promotes the hearing aid as extremely comfortable using its patented Flexi Fibers. The Flexi Fibers help cushion the hearing aid within the ear canal while using an “open fit” design which allows low frequency sounds to enter the ear unoccluded. The Flexi Fibers are removable and can be changed when ear wax plugs the opening. There is also a secondary ear wax filter beyond the Flexi Fibers which acts as an additional barrier to keep ear wax from plugging the receiver.
Eargo Plus is designed for people with mild-to-moderate high frequency hearing loss, and has four preset sound profiles. Eargo Plus is currently the only rechargeable IIC type of device on the market. Eargo has designed their own charger - the hearing devices snap securely inside. Once charged, Eargo Plus will operate for about 16 hours per day.
Upon receiving the hearing devices, the Eargo Plus client will receive a phone consultation from this professional explaining everything about their devices, including daily operation through maintenance and including setting realistic expectations. Eargo Plus purchasers is partnered with a licensed hearing professional during the 45-day trial period

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

Eargo is the solution for me at this point in my hearing loss. I've had them for a couple months now and am very pleased with them. I have been tested by hearing professionals at a medical clinic and was told that one ear was profound loss while the other was moderate loss. I had tried (in-store demo) traditional "over the ear" hearing aids from Miracle Ear, and whereas the hearing assistance provided was significant, the cost of the devices was prohibitive for me. Eargo's pricing was well within my purchase range, and I was able to use my flex-spending account provided by my employer. Plus, although I am old by some standards, (53), I really don't feel old enough to have a hearing aid device that everyone can see. Nothing wrong with it, but I just don't want that. After the 45 day trial period of my Eargos, I am well pleased with the level of hearing assistance they give me. I had great trouble understanding voices, especially in a crowded environment. For the first time in a very long time, I am able to clearly hear and understand the conversation at my table in a noisy restaurant. One of my employees is very soft-spoken and I routinely had to ask her to repeat herself. Not anymore with my Eargos. As far as comfort, these devices are very comfortable. I did have some trouble at first with one of them hurting after a few hours of wearing them, but after talking with my Eargo consultant, he advised me how to trim the flex-fibers to achieve a comfortable fit. Now, don't get me wrong, I do still know, most of the time, that they are in my ears, but just a few minutes ago I reached to scratch my ear and had forgotten that the device was in there until I felt it! LOL! The only problem I've experienced so far is that when I eat anything, they tend to want to back out of my ear canal slightly. Not a deal-breaker, but can be somewhat annoying having to push them back in several times when eating. Battery life is great, especially considering that they are rechargeable with the included charger case. I answered that the batteries last for 1 day in the review below, but there's no option to select rechargeable, so that was the most accurate option. So far, I haven't had a notification that the batteries were low and I've worn them some days for close to 16-18 hours. Overall, I would say that Eargo is a great introduction into the world of hearing assistance devices, especially for those that don't really want to wear hearing aids. I feel sure that at some point, I will have to upgrade to a more powerful device, but for now and the foreseeable future, Eargo will suit my needs just fine! Doug
