You really can’t see them
Hi my name’s Rich, I’m doing a review of my Phonak Titanium 70 hearing aid, it’s an in-the-canal hearing aid that I got from ZipHearing. This is the hearing aid, it’s that small, really like my fingernail, small, uses a size 10 battery, it fits in the ear well, stays in, a little bit of a history that I have on hearing aids is that about four years ago I had checked into hearing aids and looked at the completely in the canal hearing aid from an audiologist’s office, it did not work for me, they would not stay in my ears when I would chew they would slide out, work their way out. So being vain and not wanting to have to wear anything that would be seen I decided to wait on getting hearing aids. In early winter of 2022 which would be about 4 months ago, I started looking at hearing aids at Costco, and saw ZipHearing on Google. I went to Costco, everything was fine there, they offered the in the ear, over the ear, and full shell in-the-ear, and that would’ve been okay, the in the ear, except they were not the latest generation or the latest models, they were like last year’s models, so I decided to deal with ZipHearing and the audiologist that they referred me to. They are the Titanium 70 from Phonak, at first we had tried the Signia Silk and those did not stay in as they just slide in the ear, but they worked their way out when I would chew, so I went back to the audiologist and he fitted me for a Phonak in the ear canal hearing aid that would be molded to fit me specifically. They were a little bit cheaper so ZipHearing had the price difference in my account credited to my credit card the very next day, so they’re real good about that, their customer service is real good. I went and got the hearing aid, got it put in, got fitted, they came back, it just slips in, that quick, just like that. The only I problem I had with the Phonaks were with the molded, is the one on the left side, which would be this side, still did not fit properly, it was still coming out a little bit and I was not comfortable with how it fit so we had another mold made, that took a couple weeks to get that hearing aid back, and now I have that. And it fits well, stays in, they don’t come out, they work well, the adjustments are easy, batteries last me 4-5 days, I really like you really can’t see them, so it takes care of the vanity issue, plus I can hear much better with the surrounds, I don’t feel like I have my head plugged, or my ears plugged in, they’re very comfortable. ZipHearing has been very good to work with, I would recommend them highly, I recommend these Phonaks for someone who wants the in-the-ear, or in-the-canal I guess is what it would be called, that are custom-fitted, custom-molded, they work perfectly. Thank you, have a great day.
