About the Unitron Moxi Fit 500 Hearing Aid
The N Moxi Fit 500 is Unitron's newest and most basic receiver in canal (RIC) hearing aid. This is a 6 channel hearing aid with up to 4 programs that can be manually accessed. This hearing aid is suitable for mild to severe hearing losses, and sits virtually invisibly behind the ear. This hearing aid should be reserved for those with most calm lifestyles.
This hearing aid will not automatically adapt to your environment like all other Unitron hearing aids do. To understand why this is a drawback, you need to understand what hearing aid programs are. In short, a program is a setting on a hearing aid (usually accessible by pushing a button), which changes the frequency response of the hearing aids depending on your environment. For example, if you get in to a noisy environment, you can change your hearing aid to the "noise" program, and it will reduce background noise.
Every other Unitron hearing aid except for this model can automatically change programs depending on your environment. The 500 model does not have automatic program switching- only manual. In practical terms, that means that as you go about your day-to-day activities, if the hearing aids don't sound right, you'll need to manually change the program via the on-board push-button on the hearing aid, or by remote control. In essence, these hearing aids are going to require a lot more interaction from you as compared to more automatic, advanced hearing aids.
Aside from the lack of automatic programs, this hearing aid also lacks significant background noise reduction technology. The hearing aid has basic directionality which suppresses unwanted background noise, but it's far from the best technology Unitron offers. If understanding speech in noisy environments is a priority for you, we'd strongly recommend purchasing at least the 800 model.
A final downside to the 500 model is that it does not come with a free accessory like every other Unitron model. With every other Unitron hearing aid, you can choose at least 1 free accessory to be included with your purchase. If streaming phone calls, music, or TV is important to you, or maybe simply having a remote control for your hearing aids, you should certainly consider getting a hearing aid that includes a free accessory! Accessories usually cost hundreds of dollars, so it's worth it to purchase the slightly more advanced 600 model (which includes a free accessory).
This is a solid hearing aid, but it certainly has its drawbacks. If you lead a social or active lifestyle, you should absolutely consider a more advanced technology. This 500 model should be reserved for those with only the most calm lifestyles. This hearing aid is not likely to perform very well in noisy environments, and it's going to require much more manual interaction in order for it to sound right as you go about your day-to-day activities. This hearing aid is best for someone who primarily wants to wear hearing aids at home, to help with hearing one-on-one conversations and the TV. As the most affordable hearing aid available through our company, it's an excellent value hearing aid by a great manufacturer- you just need to make sure it's suitable for your needs.
I have used the Moxi 500 hearing aids daily (12/18hrs) since August of 2015. I have had no problems with reliability, any kind of maintenance issues, bad batteries...nothing to speak of. On that front, the aids are excellent as they should be for the high price. They feel substantial and as if they are built to last. They feel like quality devices. My problem is with the sound. I do believe this is the hearing aid's problem, because my audiologist has been very patient with me and taken her time to set them up as best she can. My issue is whenever there are multiple people speaking at the same time, for instance any kind of gathering or area with more than a few people, the amount of noise I hear is overwhelming. Yes, the hearing aids do amplify those noises closer to me (good), but with all the nonsense amplified as well, I can't say that it's easier to hear with the hearing aids in. Sometimes I'll pull them out in that situation and rely on my natural hearing which isn't great, but is more comfortable in some situations. Talking to people in small groups, quiet rooms, listening to the tv, hearing grandchildren, all has been remarkably improved. For that reason I, and my wife I'm sure, can recommend these hearing aids to anyone considering purchasing them. For anyone on the fence about hearing aids, my advice would be to just give them a shot. You will be surprised at all you have not been hearing. There is no need to suffer in silence for years as I did.
6 months wearing them so far and no failures. The amazing thing about these hearing aids is how few people will notice them. I was so concerned with concealing them when I first started wearing them but soon realized no one noticed even when I didn't conceal them, and the ones that do notice are interested and probably have a hearing loss themselves. It is not easy to see this hearing aid. The sound quality is excellent, but it wasn't always. I started with the Moxi 800 with a flexible trial period and upgraded to the Pro for a much better listening experience EVERYWHERE. Highly recommend.

This is the only way to buy hearing aids! Most any kind of model you might desire can be purchased through the ZipHearing network - and I saved a significant amount of money, about $1400 - and got a year's worth of batteries at no cost. Explore the site and then call.
I would DEFINITELY RECOMMEND ZipHearing.com. They saved me $1,300 and connected me with an excellent local company, plus gave me a year supply of hearing aid batteries. I am a completely satisfied customer. Highly recommended!
I contacted ZipHearing and received a great pair of hearing aids for way below the cost that the hearing center was asking. It's a great way to save a lot of money on state of the art products and I'm glad I found them before paying full price. Service is excellent as well.
Many online companies simply mail your new hearing aids to you, with no local service included. We believe people get better results with their hearing aids when they work directly with a local hearing provider for the proper fitting, fine tuning, cleaning, and re-calibration of the hearing aids on an ongoing basis. That's why all of our hearing aids include a 1 year local service plan at no additional cost.
