KS 8.0 Reviews

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

not functioning properly looking for a new set at a reasonable price

Member 19 September 2018

This is my 5Th set of hearing aids and by far the best. The fitting process was the most complete and detailed I have ever experienced bar none as was the hearing test. The initial set up was nearly spot on and better than anything I have experienced after many adjustments and fine tuning efforts with my previous aids. Factor in the costs of the aids into the purchase and I am blown away. Anyone in the market for hearing aids would be smart to check these aids and Costco out before purchasing anything. Saved me $3-5000.00 on a set and got me a more than comparable product to what I had been offered by traditional hearing aid vendors. 6 month free trial period,3 year warrenty as well as 2 year "free loss" replacement is frosting on the cake. Without a doubt the best value available at there.

Member 15 September 2018

I have been needing hearing aids for years, but the cost has been prohibitively high so kept putting it off. I was comparing hearing aid reviews recently and found that the Kirkland Signature 8.0 were the highest rated and the cost were very reasonable compared the to the $4000 +/- per ear cost. I have been wearing these hearing aids for a little over two week and the change in my hearing is incredible. I hear sounds that i do not remember hearing for about 50 years. I heard the rustle of paper and stopped with a bit of surprise on my ace and my wife noticed my surprise and asked what happened and when i told her we both laughed. I am still getting used to wearing them and hearing new sounds again. I do not have an other hearing aid to compare these with, but in my opinion, I cannot imagine any others being any better.

Member 12 September 2018

I am very disappointed with my Signature 8 Premium hearing aids. The right hearing aid is nothing more than an ear plug most of the time. Also, the Bluetooth works only in my left ear, when it works at all, and the right hearing aid eats batteries like crazy! I’m glad Costco has a 90 day trial period because I’m returning them. If they need repair already, I don’t trust the company. Also, I was told the clicking and other Bluetooth problems (the cutting in and out, the drastic slowing down of speech to a “wowing” sound, and the static) were Rexton’s fault, not Apple’s, and that Rexton is “still working on a fix.” So I don’t know who to believe. I’ll try Bernafon next, although they’re $1000 more. Yuck!

Member 29 August 2018

I am very happy with my new hearing aids compared to my 5 year old Phonaks! It’s amazing how technology has advanced. The only problem so far is TV listening, I am going to order their Table top device to take care of it, otherwise I have the volume turned up a little to high for others. I am only into these new Costco units 6 weeks and they possibly can possibly re-adjust my volume a tad bit higher and then the TV issue could be resolved without an additional TV box.

Member 29 August 2018

Very happy except for a couple of bluetooth problems with my iPhone: 1. When streaming music to the hearing aids, music sometimes stutters and bass is weak. But since I consider the bluetooth music to be just a nice extra, this doesn't bother me. 2. Although my phone still connects to my car when I'm driving, and although I can still initiate a call using my car's display, I can't answer a call from the display when I'm wearing my hearing aids- the car acts like there's no call coming in; I have to look at my phone to see who's calling and to answer the call. I've played around with settings on my phone and the only way to fix this is to disconnect the hearing aids from my phone. It's probably a bug in the phone or car software and not the hearing aids fault, but it's still disappointing.

Member 27 August 2018

I’ve only had them for a couple weeks. There have been a couple of issues, but they were addressed and corrected.

Member 19 September 2018

I don't often write reviews of items I purchased, even when not satisfied with the product. This time; however, I feel it is important for any prospective purchaser of the Kirkland (Costco) Signature Premium 8.0 hearing aids to have this information. By way of background, I am a 49 year old professional with an active lifestyle. I delayed purchasing a hearing aid for two years, but finally realized that I was missing too much in meetings and the like to put off getting them. I investigated many brands, went to at least two private hearing centers associated with ENT offices and tested a few different hearing aids out. I thought the Kirkland Premium 8's had the best balance of cost, performance and features available. My hearing aids are ONLY one month old and already I have had to return one of them to Costco for service. Despite purchasing a store item (they keep these in stock so they can sell you a pair of their own hearing aids as soon as your hearing test is done) when i brought my hearing aid for service because all I heard was loud static, they were unable to replace it right there. The Costco Bloomfield Hills, Michigan store informed me that they would have to send my right hearing aid back to the manufacturer (Reston) for repair and that it would take two weeks. And, despite my explaining to Costco Hearing Center personnel that I was leaving town in two days for a business trip (where I really need my hearing aids), they essentially told me that I was s-out of luck. I take very good care of my hearing aids, I clean them when needed and don't wear them when I'm working out. For the Costco Kirkland Signature Premium Hearing Aid 8.0 to FAIL after only one month is unacceptable. For Costco hearing center to tell me I was out-of-luck while I awaited the two weeks for it to be returned to the manufacturer for repair, when these are essentially off-the-shelf products ('programmed' at the hearing aid center) means I was a sucker to think that saving a few dollars would help me in the long run. I guess if you can afford to wait the two week (or more) turn around time for Costco to repair a product that is not damaged or misused by you, then Costco's Kirkland Signature Premium 8.0 Hearing Aids may still an acceptable solution for your hearing loss. However, if you are still working or require your hearing aids for communicating with the outside world I would strongly recommend that you pay the few extra dollars and purchase a different brand (NOT the Costco Kirkland Signature Premium Hearing Aid 8.0) and consider using a hearing aid provider who can provide a loaner or who has a shorter turn-around time with their manufacturers or distributors. Many private hearing centers can provide this service and I never thought that the Costco Kirkland Signature Premium Hearing Aids 8.0 would fail so miserably after just one and half months of service. PRO: low cost CON: Unreliable and defective hearing aids; Two-week (minimum) turn around time for repairs; No loaners or replacement even for something they acknowledge is defective and what is really a commodity-type product; No real diagnostics performed at the Costco hearing aid center to trouble shoot the hearing aids; Long wait times for appointments; Inconvenient hours of service at the Costco hearing aid center.

Member 28 August 2018
As an electronics Engineer, I see the devices from the technology point of view. There is a very high degree of complexity and programing in these devices that can cause issues. Also there are thing the user can do that can cause such issues with them realizing it. I have had mine for 1 month now, I have had a few issues and I have found some were caused by myself. for instance when I wear one of my prescription sunglasses, it causes issues with volume control of the left hearing aid. I remove the glasses and drop volume all the way down then raise it to the level I need and then replace my glasses. Turnaround time is a function of testing time & repair. NOT just hook them up, push a button, read diagnostics and repair. there is acoustic and RF links between the units that have to be reverified in many usage situations. This takes time. I am sorry about your timing issues. You went 2 years without them, please be patient. I think you will be very glad you did. Also, an audiologist tried to sell me a similar pair but wanted $6,875 dollars for the pair and I would have had to wait 1 month to receive them. Costco did much better for me! Please let me know how it goes!
Member 19 September 2018
I had a similar issue, but my Costco gave me a loaner pair and is supposed to have mine back within a week.   It might be the location -- which unfortunately is not helpful when there aren't multiple of them.  It was frustrating to me that in less than 2 months I was having issues with them.  
Member 25 August 2018

The people at Costco in Midlothian are absolutely wonderful. I just love Jonathan he is so nice. Only problem I have is getting them in my ears due to the fact that I have arthritis in my hands.

Member 22 August 2018

My previous hearing aids were 5 years old and it was time for an upgrade, when my dog ate them! My last pair cost $7,000.00 and my budget just could NOT handle that big a hit. But hearing aids are not a luxury, they are a necessity. I did not belong to Costco and they were two hours away from me. Sam's Club offers hearing aids, but they were $800. more that Costco's and $800.buy a lot of batteries. I made an appointment with Costco and made the drive. I could not be more impressed with Mr. Kelso and how he examined and tested my hearing. He was caring and compassionate and delinitely fined tuned them PERFECTLY! I walked out with them that very day. It wasn't until I'd gotten my new Kirkland Signatures, did I realize that I had not gone to the movies (which I love) for a long time, opting to stay at home and read closed captions because my hearing aids didn't work well enough for me. Quite frankly, if you can fall in love with a hearing aid, I have. My world is so much better. I love being able to adjust them to the environment from my cell phone! I no longer live in silence. My television is at a level that "normal" people hear television. I HEAR WHISPERS! Cannot say enough good things about Mr. Kelso and my Kirkland Signature 8.0 hearing aids. I tell EVERYONE!

Member 20 August 2018
You have clarity..for tv and movies? I have to read..tv..gave up plays, movies etc, sadly... I don’t...I hope my south Florida Costco audiologist is as good as yours when I try them out because of your review...lie just read $1599... I hope that’s a pair, not each one..I hope you reply.. Thank you, Jeffrey
Member 22 August 2018
That is the price for the PAIR!
Member 14 August 2018

The hearing aids have allowed me to hear sounds I have not heard in 20 years. The audiologist said your brain will relearn to hear sounds. I have had them a month and can now hear crickets and referee whistles again. I was told it takes a month to really see a difference. I wear them during waking hours.

Member 25 August 2018

They do not fit in my mother's ears. They fit and seemed fine when she was first fitted with the. They were serviced shortly after that; maybe 46 months after. Ever since the servicing that have not fit in her ears. She has not received any resolution for this problem. They didn't have any problem selling them to her, but they don't want to help resolve the problem. They tell her that they don't fit her small ear canals. Then they never should've been sold to her. Very disappointed in Costco.

Member 25 August 2018
Ear canals can change shape over time, I had an ear infection and my ear canal got smaller so the bigger dome didn't work for me anymore. What I had to do was get custom made moulds for my ears, it cost a bit more but it was the only way it would fit in my ear. Both done for less than $100 and now I can use the hearing aids again
Member 14 August 2018

These are my first Hearing Aids, These have really made a difference for me and are a great value compared to what I was initially offered at 4X the cost.

Member 29 August 2018

I have had my Kirkland Signature KS8 hearing aids for two weeks. I am very happy with them. They assist me to hear all that is going on around me. It is taking a little while to get used to the sound of my own voice, however, I am told that will correct itself in about 2 - 4 weeks. The only issue I have is that Rexton have made these for iPhone compatibility. As I am a long time Android user (Samsung Galaxy S9+) it is a little frustrating that the app does not do what it does if you own an iPhone. Rexton should correct this so that those with Android phones have the same functionality as those with iPhones. Afterall, we pay exactly the same amount for the hearing aids, but have to then turn around and buy accessories in order to have the increased functionality. Not good! However, on the positive side, as someone who has severe hearing loss as a result of two inner ear infections, I am very very pleased with the KS8s, they have changed my life very quickly. Peter!

Member 03 August 2018
I understand the problem is not Rexton’s -Apple developed advanced technology contained in its iOS devices that simply is not available in android phones. Apple has a patent and apparently keeps the technology for its own devices.
Member 16 August 2018
I have recently purchased Kirkland Signatures 8.0 and were able to be controlled via bluetooth to my Samsung Galaxy phone! The audiologist didn't think it would work, but he tried it and it did!
Member 16 August 2018
Then Rexton should have developed appropriate technology that allows everyone using their hearing aids to have the same functionality. I am seriously thinking of upgrading to Phonac as they do have the technology to allow for Bluetooth streaming and phone calls to function with android phones. This is a very serious negative for the KS8 hearing aids.
Member 29 August 2018
You are absolutely right about the Android issue. After all there are more Android users than iPhones
Member 29 August 2018
I would bet Apple is paying hearing aid manufactures to use their technology, By doing so Apple becomes the phone of choice and HA manufactures make more money on required accessories for compatibility with other phones. Most all recent phones use compatible Bluetooth hardware. The Bluetooth protocol is specified in IEEE 802.15
Member 25 August 2018

Update 8-3-18. I updated to the iOS newest beta 12. With iOS 11 I had isolated but infrequent instances of pops and static when streaming from iPhone-these have completely disappeared. Also I found that when moving between iPhone and iPad for streaming make sure to disable Bluetooth on the device you are leaving and enable Bluetooth on the device you intend to stream from. If the hearing aids seems to not immediately reconnect, turn off Bluetooth for 5 seconds - turn back on and theyreconnect just fine. Make sure you went into both devices originally and set up the hearing aids in ios’ settings. The new iOS version 12 upgrade should be released to the geraral public in September 2018 I am using this app with Costco's Signature 8.0 hearing aids. I was blown away by my iTunes streaming music directly to my hearing aids directly from my iPhone 7+. The sound clarity and bass is hard to believe when you first hear it. You can even use iOS’ sound equalizer to output sound tuned to your particular preference. I can move back-and-forth between devices simply by disabling Bluetooth on the device I am leaving. The sound is not 100% perfect because sometimes I get crackling and pops in the hearing aids when streaming Music or podcasts– not frequently but often enough that I would like to find the cure. There doesn’t seem to be a pattern for when this occurs. I was using Google Maps the other day and was surprised to hear the GPS directions coming in over my hearing aids. It’s also nice to control music or podcast volume using the iPhone’s volume controls, and you can even use iOS to change the sound output balance when needed from center weighted to heavy in the left or right hearing aid. I am almost deaf in my right ear in certain tones and the ability to hear clearly is amazing. Last night I was hearing birds chirping in nearby trees which I’ve never heard before. I've had a little bit of problem losing mucic/iTunes connection with occasionally the L hearing aid - usually new batteries and reconnecting using Apple's settings fixed the problem. They work ubelievably well 99.9% of the time - only problems have occurred when streaming sound from the iphone or ipad - I suspect this is an iOS Bluetooth/MFi problem not a problem with the hearing aids. When the L channel music is out I still have good hearing aid function. I was walking the other day and notices as I came upon a mower that the L device automatically adjusted the volume level up to compensate and override the ambient noice -same thing happened walking into the wind - no wind noise but a slight increase in volume. Nice!

Member 06 August 2018
Can you tell me how to replace the domes.. I cannot get them to "unsnap" thank you any help.

Member 14 August 2018

Going well, the only problem is the itching and we are working on that. I'm currently working on different sizes of open domes to get the best fit.

Member 15 August 2018

These are my first hearing aids, and have had them for about 2 months. I am generally pleased with them. They are extremely comfortable, and I don't even know I am wearing them. The one complaint that I have, and it's got nothing to do with the quality. It's the battery life. I am getting 5 days on average. I just wish the life was longer. Considering the batteries are about 19 cents at Costco, I guess that's not really bad at all.

Member 15 August 2018
My audiologist has said others have had problems with the Kirkland batteries. I have as well. Recently a friend gave me a different kind that her husband was no longer using due to newer hearing aids. It seems like they are a little stronger---as in I think I hear slightly better. Sound seems slightly louder. But I still need replacements as mine are 6 yrs old.
Member 14 August 2018

They were more than adequate.

Member 14 August 2018

I was pleasantly surprised at how much better I could hear

Member 14 August 2018

I thought I did not need hearing aids. I felt I never had trouble hearing. Then I noticed I could not hear the TV as well as my wife and in some public presentations I could not make out what they were saying when others seemed to have no problem. I went for a test with the audiologist Alan Kawer and found very professional and complete diagnosis, answering all questions in and easy to understand and helpful manner. The hearing aids were ordered and installed with amazing results . I hear a lot of high frequency sounds have not heard for years , I now here the birds chirping and other beeps and have much less difficulty with hearing the TV. Very satisfied with the product, the process in getting outfitted and the cost of batteries. I am a very satisfied customer.

Member 19 September 2018

Too much static while “streaming”. Crackling sounds.

Lisa M. 26 July 2018
Did you get this fixed? I was having a static problem in my left. Noticed it first while listening to podcast, but then realized there was "fuzz" during general use. HA specialist changed out the transmitter to less powerful one, and it seems to be doing the trick.
Member 19 September 2018
I've had this issue as well.  Were you able to get it fixed?
Member 14 August 2018

This is the third set of hearing aids I've gotten from COSTCO (health plan covering portions of them over the last 14 years) and the best ever. Love the BlueTooth capability and listening to recorded books from library. Receiving phone calls directly into the hearing aids is great. (only draw back is finding the phone where I left it in the house since it rings in the ear - - but does FLASH when a call comes in) Very comfortable - I even had them put in the larger ear cups so that I hear just about everything via the hearing aids verses the smaller cups that would do both live to ear and via the hearing aid. Staff are very conscientious, kind and caring. App on iPhone lets me adjust for environment changes - i.e. restaurant, movie, etc. ((though these are fairly "smart" and try to do that on their own.) No, you don't end up like glasses where you can sometimes get back to 20/20 for vision, but these are the best I've had. I'm a young 71 and hope to have these for quite a while

Member 14 August 2018

I am new to hearing aids and I felt as if they were just okay. Everyone else say they definetly help because I am not asking them to repeat themselves. So yes the are doing there job. I have only had one adjustment. I started realizing after talking to others HA wearers, that even HA's at $6000 are no better, in fact mine seem to do better overall than theirs. This is most true in noisy places and have far less reverb. T.V. is okay as is music but not great, maybe more fine tuning? Wind is not a problem at all unless it is strong from behind, I should not that I am bald. Road noise is very minimal, surprisingly. Comfort is outstanding, I often forget them when I jump in the shower or in bed. Battery life is five solid days 14 to 16 hours daily. 2 year free replacement for damage or loss, free adjustments and cleaning for life. Hard to beat for the price!

Member 14 August 2018

These are the best I've had. Phone, TV, and music are much improved over my previous Resound. Soft speech was low, has been adjusted and is fine now.

Geoff G. 14 August 2018

I love them! My hearing has been improved tremendously and I'm enjoying the iPhone link!!

Member 14 August 2018

I've had these KS8s for about a week and a half. These are the third pair of HAs I've owned over the past 12 years, and they are a major improvement over my previous 6 year-old pair. These new aids are better in noisy environments, the installed programs allow me to tweak performance in unusual settings (although I find the Automatic program works pretty well) and I even "water tested" them by accidentally wearing them in the pool one day (NOT recommended, but they survived without damage - just needed new batteries). I've had two problems: one is that I can't figure out how to stream music from iPhone direct to hearing aids, and the second is I'm having trouble with music sound quality -- high notes sound shrill and sharp, not rich like low and mid range music. My Costco audiologist is an hour drive (each way) so I'm using the Base/Treble control in the Connexx App to get an acceptable sound. In general, I'm pleased with the Aids and I'm pleased with Costco's audiologist -- just wish the store was closer to home.

Member 14 August 2018

They seem to work fine. Not sure that they provide a significant improvement in hearing. They seem plenty loud when I turn them up. I rarely keep them turned full up. I'm not sure that I will keep them.

Shiraz S. 14 August 2018

Had the KS 8.0 for a week. The battery lasted for 5 days. On the 5th day it was not so good

Geoff G. 01 May 2018
That is what I get out of the batteries on average and was told that's about what to expect.
Randy M. 14 August 2018

This rating is after 9 days of using the KS8. It is a HUGE improvement over the KS5 that I had for 5 years.

Member 14 August 2018

Bluetooth function on phone is terrific the iPhone app is very useful the aid is small enough that O2 cannula does not get caught Just great all around great value

Member 14 August 2018

I have only had my HAs three weeks ( today is March 21, 2018. I have two programs, an everyday program and a program for a noisy environment like a restaurant. The second program doesn't seem to work well. I have an android phone and I don't stream music.

Member 14 August 2018

I started with Costco Ks 7.0 and they were OK at best. I switched to KS 8.0 and for me there is a world of difference. With the KS 7.0s I was always fiddling with volume, base/treble, and programs, with the KS 8.0 I turn them on and forget them. KS 7.0 would pick up road noise in the car and make it the dominant sound, no problem with KS 8.0. With KS 8.0 everything sounds better, my voice, my wife, TV, music, etc. The phone applications: Sound Exposure and Motion Sensor seem to crash frequently but I don't feel a need for them. I am running the app on a non approved Samsung J3 so I find no fault with the phone issues. Batter life is not great, about 4 days but that is fine with me. My hearing loss is just in certain ranges so open domes let me hear low sounds naturally and the missing ranges are filled in seamlessly. I wear the KS 8.0s 16 hours a day and completely forget I have them in.

Ceres P. 14 August 2018

it is thevgreatest gearing aid i ever used, help me a lot it should have easier ways to control programs and wich program would be used to hear Bluetooth music

Hi,having problems with the programs settings,I have been back to Costco many times now,the T.V. is still sounding like people are talking underwater,the 360 program does not work well,still can't seem to tell where sounds are coming from,in others cars can't hear people talking if I am in the back seat and they are up front,can hear them only if they are turning around and talking to me, hope this help you,but everyone is different,it just they are not working out for me,I had the resounds before and did not have much problems as I am having with the 7,money is tight right now,so that is why I went to the 7 and now will try the 8 if that does not work I will have no choice,but to get the new Resounds,

Thanks for the feedback. I can relate to the directional feature not working very well. Also have had issues with phone calls, sound breaks up somewhat . . . I'm able to understand conversations, just not a nice natural sounding voice.

The Smart Mic is the correct accessory for streaming to Android or to be hands free with the iPhone.

you can stream music from iPhone to aids without any other device

Yes. There is an iPhone app that you need to download. The series 6 was listed under kirkland. Android 9 is due out in the fall and should be hearing aid compatible Until then I use my Bose hearphones for music and tv. For 499 on Amazon they work well

Waiting for telecoil version
Leslie S. 06 April 2018 Replied to Member
We are also waiting for the Telecoil version which, I believe, was supposed to have been available in mid-March. The 7s are returned, and we are looking forward to iPhone 6 connectivity on the 8s. Today is a second hearing exam. It would have been helpful to try the Resound LiNX 3D 9 and Zerena 9 in order to judge the sound of music. Programmed hearing aids for comparative purposes in different brands aren’t available at our Costco.

I purchased my Kirkland 7.0s in November of 2017. April 1, 2018 I decided to upgrade my phone and go from an Android device to an Iphone 8 plus; that's when I found out about the Kirkland 8.0s. I returned my 7.0s purchased the 8.0s for $100 less and walked out with much more natural sounding hearing aids. I have been very impressed with the sound difference. The great thing is the 180 day trial period, 3 yr warranty, and 2 yr replacement warranty started all over again.
Member 17 April 2018
After four hours, I am disappointed. The sound from the aids is good. But the right aid clicks and clicks when connected to iPhone. So that’s not good. There is no mute for the microphone while the iPhone is playing music. Must have the volume on the mics to some degree. To switch to the tv transmitter, the IPhone app is necessary. Maybe there’s a button setting that can be made by the fitter, but so far the iPhone is necesssary to turn on/off the tv transmission. Most importantly, the remote mic is a huge disappointment. There is no audio input on the remote mic. The KS5 remote had a 3.5 audio input. This would allow use with audio sources other than iPhone. Anyway, so far the sound is better , bu the convenience stuff is lacking. And then there’s that clicking....
Member 17 May 2018 Replied to Member
On the iPhone app, if you are listening to music you can mute the microphones. Turn the slider all the way down. The iPhone app isn't needed to switch to the TV transmitter... If you switch to the TV program using the buttons on your hearing aids, it will link to the tv transmitter

I was tested yesterday and suggested to try them out in the store. They sound like I'm in a barrel but was told that will go away in time. I told them I would think about it. considering purchasing but still unsure. $1600 is a lot of money.

Not to be mean- but I would suggest checking reviews about various Costcos in your area in regards to the Hearing Specialists. Or even just visiting another one. My original guy was wonderful and a great man but either didn't have the training or understood all the programming advantages the digital have. Still he did me well. 4.5 years down the road with my KS4 I met a new gal in training along with another brother and I tell you they brought new life to my KS4. We started from scratch. But they did things the other brother Either didn't know about or was satisfied doing things his way. I was shocked! I always tell people though always go in and get adjusted often. If you don't like the settings you can revert or try something different. I don't care how much tech you cram into these things it will always take time to get it right for you. If you're in Utah the folks at the West Valley City Costco are awesome!! I've tested the KS8 about 3 times vs the Bernafons. I like the Bernafons in terms of how sound is processed and seems to do a much better job at regulating a balance of ambience and voice. KS8 is a huge improvement over my KS4 I'm getting it because it's a bit more hands on for me and cost. If I could however I'd be doing the Bernafons.

If you think @1,600 is a lot of money, go online or go to an audiologist. When he tells you$5,000 for a product that has too many bells and whistles, you will fly back to Costco and figure out a way to buy them. Costco is not the largest seller of hearing aides in the United States for no reason. Their audiologists are no paid on a commission basis and you will get what you need If not satisfied you can change to another one they carry or go back to an audiologists and give him $5,000 of your hard earned money for an equal or inferior product. The only people who do not like Costco are audiologists! I have been with Costco and have ZERO complaints. i am currently switching to the Kirkland Signature 8.0 which is made by Rexton and has blue tooth technology through my IPHone 6 that makes my hearing of phone calls amazing. Cant wait to have my best to order them!

I agree. I'm now on week 4 of KS8 -- first time wearer. I'm fortunate to have a Costco nearby (Charlotte NC), but I would consider traveling for this affordability, high quality product, and professional service. Regarding price -- Surprisingly, Costco's prices have actually gone down as technology has increased.
Member 21 April 2018
Replaced one side right after I bought them due to static noise. Two days later trouble with other side. Told them I was having trouble with both on first visit to adjust. Keep telling me to make an appointment again and again ( I’m an hour away) if you can get someone to answer the phone that is. I don’t think I need this hassle! Now it keeps dropping Bluetooth and battery showes good but hour later must change it. Junk
Member 22 April 2018
Great hearing aid but in noisy environment it’s terrible. Had adjustment done but now I having a hissing sound. This is my second haearing aids after returning the resounds. I’m new at wearing hearing aids. Should I try the Phonak Bio 3
Member 17 May 2018 Replied to Member
try the noise program for noisy environment, try turning down the treble on the app to reduce the hissing sound
Member 22 April 2018
Bluetooth function on one side suddenly quit. App says it is turned off. Opened and closed doors on both sides, no change. Batteries are new and it worked earlier. What to do?
Member 27 April 2018 Replied to Member
I had the same issue. My left device was not pairing. After much frustration, I took it back to Costco/hearing center to see if they could figure it out. On top of the constant warbling / Flutter when sound hit a certain tone.. They saw that the left wasn't pairing and that I was the first to comment about this issue. They are sending it in for repair. Try calling them and see if they can send it in.
Mike R. 28 April 2018
Like the previous post, I am new to hearing aids and still getting used to a lot of things. That said, some of the promised functionality in the base Costco package I find very lacking. But first the positive. . My primary goal was relief from my chronic and worsening tinnitus. I was skeptical but I have now experienced a significant lessening of the screaming in my ears when my Kirkland series 8 hearingvaidsvarevin place. I know that because when I take them out it comes roaring back. It might be even louder than before I started wearing these a month ago, not sure. . They are clearly amplifying ranges of sound which I previously wasn’t hearing. However, I’m Not experiencing improved comprehension of voices or TV. Not discernibly. Perhaps my brain needs a little more time to learn how to process those new signals. . Costco‘s generous one time replacement of lost hearing aids. I didn’t make it through my second week without losing one of them. It was cheerfully replaced. . Costco’s generous 180 day return policy, which I may avail myself of later today in my follow up appt. . Costco‘s whole approach, with very knowledgeable non-commissioned technicians as my primary interface. I went to to conventional audiologists first which offered solutions roughly 3 times the price, and none gave me a hearing test anywhere near as thorough . The negatives: . Callers can’t hear me. And there is no adjustment in the app for volume of my voice. This a huge problem. Potential show stopper. . The ambient noise in my life seems to be too much for these hearing aids. They are virtually unusable in my vehicles, granted my vehicles are pretty noisy. But it’s a problem because I don’t want to be taking these out when I’m out and about. Already lost one of the two once. I’m now experimenting with over the ear, and yes, in the ear wired headphones/earbuds options to use in conjunction with these hearing aids. Believe or not, the earbuds that come with the iPhone 8 will hang in your ear outside of this hearing aid and work fine, although they fall out pretty easy. . Audio quality for streaming music is low. . I find the app lacking pretty much every feature I go looking for, starting with a basic equalizer. With everything being automatically adjusted constantly there are times when certain frequency ranges are amplified excessively. I would dearly love to just take control and tell it what to do at times. No can-do. . App lacks a “find my lost hearing aid“ feature, which ironically would have come in very handy on week two. .
Member 29 April 2018
Definitely bothered I can only streams music, calls in one ear with Wireless device..( Extra $$) with my Nexus 5x, worked fine with my 6 year old aids. Costco should really fix this issue for Android users.
Member 30 April 2018
Exchanged my 7.0 for 8.0 a week ago to pick up the Bluetooth capability. Love that Bluetooth and how it works for phone calls. The app can give you a lot of information but it's a total hog of the phone battery. I've had to recharge my phone in the middle of the day with all the functionality on. Now I've turned off everything but the ability to select the program and adjust the volume and the sound balance and it's not using much phone battery power now. When the HA batteries start to weaken it can cause all sorts of problems and an inability to change the volume. I was in a very noisy environment on Saturday and it was impossible to lower the volume. That's a clear sign to change the batteries.

Settings/General/Accessibility/MFI Hearing Devices on the iPad. I believe it only connects to one apple device at a time, so if it's already connected to your iPhone, you probably need to disconnect it from that to connect it to your iPad
Member 05 May 2018
Wow! Great hearing aid. Programming option are great. Interface with iPhone for phone calls is fantastic. BUT I lost one of my hearing aids today. In a panic, didn’t want to test the loss guarantee, didn’t know how long that would take. Hmmm! Came up with an idea to use the iPhone to find the hearing aid. I had been working outside and inside. The iPhone led me inside, and then to the right room. The rest was up to me. But without the aid of the iPhone, I never would have found it.
Member 06 May 2018 Replied to Member
I just lost both of my aids. Next set must have locator app. I was under the impression that the 8.0's didnt have a locator feature. Can you advise how you used the app to find your aids? Tnx
Member 06 May 2018 Replied to Member
Don’t need the app for this. AIDS due have to be blue tooth linked to the iPhone. Settings, General, Accessability, MFI Hearing Devices. Click the connected link to view the battery strength. If the strength display is searching, retrace your likely steps watching to see if the battery strength signal for either aids shows up. You are now within about 15 feet of the aid. I then moved in each of four directions to scope out the boundary. Then I new the aid was within the area. About 30 ft by 30 ft. Meant I knew which room of the house and to stop searching outside or in the garage.

Has your Costco tried troubleshooting over the phone with you? That depends on which LG phone you have. Make sure your bluetooth is on, go into the app and click the bottom right menu, then click setup. Once you click set up open and close battery doors and lay the HAs on top of the phone.

Maybe if you have a galaxy note, google pixel, one of the higher end phones you might be able to get away with it

I have an LG G6 and the signature 8.0 hearing aids, and the smart direct app works perfectly. I had some trouble pairing it, but once it paired, it's fine.
Member 17 May 2018 Replied to Member
if you don't have an iPhone/iPod/iPad or samsung phone don't bother with Connexx Smart Direct app. Download the Connexx Smart Remote app instead and set it up with that one. The KS8 is a ramped up KS7 so the KS7 app works with it, and the smart remote app is 'compatible with any Android device running Android 4.0 or higher'. Go rexton, manual setup, rexton products, follow instructions. Once it's setup, go into 'advanced setup', 'performance level 80' to bring back microphone-pattern mode. This is what worked for me

I have the 8.0 hearing aids. When I try to use the remote mic on my iPhone 10 there is a very slight delay that is bad enough for me to not be able to use this feature. I am thinking about purchasing a Bluetooth 2.4 transmitter for my TV, for $40.00 instead of the $165.00 Costco charges. Anyone have experience with this? I am afraid there may be that delay I hear using remote mic. That would make it unusable. Thanks for any feedback! Otherwise like them after 1.5 days using them.
Member 25 July 2018 Replied to Member
Before you get a bluetooth transmitter adapter for your TV, it would be a good idea to check the audio outputs available on the TV. I use one but have to connect it to the cable box because my TV will only output audio to one source at a time. You have to choose the TV speakers or the aux output. This is a very common issue if you plan to use the headphone jack that may be on your TV, because that will automatically shut off the TV speakers, at least on my TV it does. They are all different, so check it out carefully.
D_ ellsworth C. 31 May 2018
I've not worn hearing aids at all, but have an obvious need. I've been contemplating buying a pair of these. I've been waiting for the 8.0 T version to become available. The primary reason being it uses a larger battery which will have a longer battery life. I've been informed by my local Costco center that the 8.0 T version is now available, and is the same price as the 8.0. They told me they have a dummy version of the 8.0 T available in the warehouse so I can compare it size wise with the 8.0
Member 05 June 2018
I am interested in getting the Signature 8.0T hearing aid. The hearing aids that I have now are about 7 yrs old and are not doing a good job anymore. I know from experience that I have quite a bit of earwax in my right ear. I have tried the store products to remove it. It softens the wax but does not remove it. My question is will the Audiologist at Costco remove the wax before doing the hearing test? It is about a hour drive to Costco each way so I would hate to be sent away, plus I will be joining Costco just to get the hearing aids.

I love having the ability to stream phone calls through these. I am struggling with the microphone though, unless my iPhone is really close to me callers cannot hear me very well. Any suggestions on phone microphone settings that would make this work better?

Member 14 July 2018 Replied to Member
None of the hearing aids at Costco have a tinnitus manager. If you have an iPhone (or a Smart Mic accessory), you can get around it by downloading a tinnitus app and then streaming those sounds to the hearing aids. It has Bluetooth low energy, which is not 100% the same as bluetooth

I waited for the new KS 8 to come out, because of the iPhone capacity. I’m very disappointed as I get so much static through the HA when on the phone, music, or audio books. I had them adjusted to no avail, then asked for replacement. The second pair also have the annoying static! They work well for normal use, but streaming no.

I think the problem is resolved -- just dealt with it yesterday afternoon. Specialist changed the receiver to a less powerful one. So far, so good. Someone in another thread had a great idea about testing HA in reverse ear. With my static/popping problem in left, specialist brought up possibility about the "better ear (very mild loss)" detecting the static. That wasn't the case, but I didn't think about testing if my right ear could hear the static, or to see what my right HA sounded like in my left. Good tip.

I bought Kirkland 8.0 hearing aids in Cedar Park, TX. I'm not able to comment on the quality of the hearing aids because the service was so poor. The guy who fitted mine had absolutely no idea what he was doing. When I tried to explain to him that I had to remove the devices to understand what people were saying in conversations and when trying to watch television or a movie there was such a crackling sound that it was impossible to tolerate. After five appointments and three months time this guy told me hearing aid were not perfect and I would just have to get used to it. I returned them.

I purchased the hearing aids in February of 2018. I love them- Except- the bluetooth match while in my car. When in my car, I can place a call through the bluetooth of my vehicle. But, when I get a call, I am unable to receive the call- neither through the bluetooth in my car, my iPhone, or hearing aids! I have gone twice to my closest Costco. They have unpaired the hearing aids, then paired them again. Same problem. They called the manufacturer and I guess I am the only one with this problem? The dealer I go to- Lexus- said to buy a new vehicle. That maybe the new system would pair better??? Anyone have the same issue?

Anyone here having trouble with the bluetooth in their car? When I make phone calls, the call goes through the blue tooth in my car. But- when I receive a call, the call goes into limbo! I cannot receive it through the car, iPhone, or hearing aids! My local Costco unpaired the hearing aids then paired again. No luck. Lexus said to buy a new vehicle with newer technology. Manufacturer said no one has ever complained about this! Do any of you use the blue tooth inside your vehicle? Do you have problems?

Just got my first HA and so far I like these. I was having some small issues with Bluetooth not working from iPad to iPhone and back. Went in for my two week check and there was a new firmware update she had to load into the HA. My Bluetooth issue seemed to be my iPhone became unpaired with my HA. After the firmware update and fresh batteries all working fine. My domes we slipping out a bit so went up a size and they seem almost to tight, but going to try them and see how it goes. The audiologist was extremely helpful at my Silverdale WA location and is eager to help me with any issues. I enjoy listening to my music via Bluetooth while shopping and it’s not overwhelming with sound and allows ambient noises and conversations to come thru easily. I have needed HAs for probably dozens of years and glad I finally have them. I’ve found I’m relistening to my favorite music and amazed at how many musical instruments I’ve missed in songs. Also went to my first movie tonight and had no issues with the action scenes and loud boomy sounds. For reference, I muted my HA and couldn’t believe how much Sound I’ve been missing. My hearing isn’t horrible, just anything in the high frequencies are muted and flat. I’m finding hearing myself speak is rather strange. When I mute the HA my internal voice sounds mumbling and flat, now I sound very clear and annunciation is more distinct. Is this the best HA for the money, I honestly have no idea, but I’m not disappointed in the least.

I'm not that impressed w/these. The app will mysteriously go into "demo" mode and I have to reboot my phone to get out of it. They go into "acoustic" mode for no apparent reason and again, I'll have to re-boot and re-pair my hearing aids. I was REALLY looking forward to streaming music while I'm walking or even working at my desk, but it's so unreliable. Rarely will I get sound in both ears and they make me dizzy with how often they cut in and out. I don't bother now. I will say though, the sound of the music streaming into my hearing aids is awesome. If only they worked! I have another appointment next week and I'm just going to ask for something different. I've been wearing hearing aids for 9 years but these are just too frustrating.

The last pair of hearing aids I bought 5 years ago from an audiologist for $7,000.00 and my hearing had declined since then and so when my dog ate my aids, I knew I needed new ones anyway. However, my budget could not afford new hearing aids that cost $7,000.00 I had resigned myself to start saying, "Excuse me, I did not hear you" in social situations and miss out on the hearing world around. I even stopped going to the movies, because my hearing aids did not work well with the movie head phones. I still couldn't hear clearly. I am a researcher in my career, so I started researching hearing aid companies and prices. The nearest Costco from me was 2 hours away and I was not a member, offered their Kirkland Signature 8.0 for $1600.00 I AM close to a Sam's Club, but the best they could do was $2400.00 - so I opted to pay for my membership and I went to Costco. I was VERY SURPRISED when the audiologist, who performed a thorough exam and testing , asked me when I wanted to get my new aids. I said, "I want them today, if I can have them!" I've now had them a few weeks and go for a follow up visit in another week. I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER! I can hear again. I even went to the movies! Now the first thing I do in the morning is put my hearing aids in. Before, I had just previously left them out when I was at home, but these I ACTUALLY ENJOY WEARING THEM!~ The 6 month trial period is PHENOMENAL! The fact that they will REPLACE AT NO COST any lost or damaged aid for the FIRST YEAR IS UNHEARD OF!!! I highly recommend going to Costco. I know in 3-5 years I will be going back there again!
Member 16 August 2018
My previous hearing aids I'd bought from an audiologist for $7,000. 5 years ago. So when my dog ate them, I wasn't too upset, because I was due for an upgrade anyway. But $7,000.00 for 2 hearing aids was definitely not in my budget. I was not a member of Costco and the closest Costco was 2 hours away! Sam's club offered hearing aids, but their price was $2400.00 compared to Costco's Kirkland Signature 8.0 for $1600.00! $800.00 buys A LOT of batteries, so I went to Costco. I was examined and tested and the difference in what they offered me was UNBELIEVABLE! 6 MONTHS TO TRY THEM AND RETURN IF NOT SATISFIED!!!! REPLACEMENT OF ANY LOST OR DAMAGED HEARING AIDS FOR THE FIRST YEAR! NO ONE GIVES YOU THAT KIND OF GUARRANTEE ANYWHERE. I LOVE THEM. I WEAR THEM ALL THE TIME AND TELL EVERYONE TO GO TO COSTCO.
Member 25 August 2018
I am absolutely thrilled with my hearing aids. I am an avid outdoorsman and have been gradually missing out on the sounds of nature. My world has been brought back and seems even brighter now. The birds, wind through the tree leaves, running water, even the dogs foot steps on the kitchen floor are beautiful sounds to me. The service I received at the Allentown PA store was very professional, educational and friendly. Paul was awesome. I'd recommend it to anyone and have already done so. The hearing aids are top quality and have unbelievable features and are an incredible value. I have had no problems adjusting to wearing them and feel as though my quality of life has improved. My hair is short and most people don't even realize I'm wearing them except for the fact I'm not asking them to repeat themselves. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

My left ear needs a lot more volume than my right ear. It also needs more treble than the right ear. But it seems that the Signature 8.0 can only have programs that are the same for both hearing aids and that the volume can only be changed for both at the same time. Even though the iphone has separate controls for each ear, they don't work. Is the signature 8.0 a dumbed down version of another aid, or on which aid can each ear be adjusted separately.

These replaced a mail-order hearing aid that had broken down for the 2nd time in as many years. Before that I had tried more expensive hearing aids for a month from a hearing aid store, but ended up getting a refund as I wasn't pleased with the audio quality, and bluetooth would have required a separate box that cost even more. I've only had these Kirkland 8.0 hearing aids a week but I'm pretty happy so far. The hearing test and purchase experience was top-notch (they let me try out a couple of products during my first visit and walk around the store with them), sound quality is very good, they're comfortable, I like the color, and I can definitely hear people's speech and environmental sounds better. My only complaints are about bluetooth. Music quality is just so-so due to weak bass, which is no big deal since I don't listen to music much (though maybe I would if it sounded better). But a more annoying problem is that if I get an incoming call while driving, I have to take out my iPhone to see who's calling and to answer; although I can hear the ringtone in my hearing aids, the car's display doesn't show an incoming call and the steering wheel answer button doesn't work (but I know my car and iPhone are still connected because I can still make a call from the car's display). I've tried changing various settings on my iPhone with no luck; there seems to be no way around this unless I disconnect the hearing aids from my iPhone. I know this is more likely the fault of my iPhone or my car than my hearing aids, but it's still disappointing.

I've had my hearing aids for 4 days. I love being able to hear. Occasionally I hear pops, or hearing switches back and forth from left to right, quickly. I live in a very humid environment and sweat a lot. Could that be the problem?

I have the Rexton hearing aids and am very happy with them and the attention to detail the practitioner pays. What I am not happy about is the toxic product they use to wipe down the room in between clients. It is called Cavicide - and is harmful. I have sent letters to Costco headquarters and they weren't very open to looking at the issue. There are literally thousands of complaints about this chemical reported to the FDA. Check out Cavicide and see if you want to be breathing that into your body in an enclosed room! And what about the health and well being of the practitioners??

I bought the 1Mii B03 Long Range 230Ft Bluetooth 4.2 Transmitter Receiver to try to stream the TV sound into my hearing aids but I can't seem to pair the two together. Any one know if this can be done?

I have the 1Mii B03 Long Range 230Ft Bluetooth 4.2 Transmitter hooked to my TV and I'm trying to pair it to my Signature 8 hearing aids. Can't get it to work. Any suggestions?
