How is NewEar rated?
Overall Rating: 7.7 / 10 (Very good)
NewEar BTE may not be the best hearing amplifier in the market but it does a good job for a device in its price range. However, it might not be ideal for noisy environments. Good points also include a longer battery life which lasts for up to 40 hours when fully charged. A good entry-level hearing amplifier for its price.

Pricing - 7 / 10
NewEar's Digital Ear Hearing Amplifier is available new for a variety of prices online. Generally the cost seems to hover around $39.99. Depending on what service you are using, shipping can in some cases be free. As true hearing aids can cost upwards of $5,000, this looks like an attractive option. But a personal sound amplification device should not be used in lieu of a actual hearing aid that has been fitted and adjusted by a professional. This device is more suited for light use, i.e. listening to a low television set as to not disturb others in the room.

After-Sale Service - 7 / 10
NewEar's PSAP is only available through third party resellers. Customers are urged to consult the warranty and return policy of the particular provider they are using. As the price of the unit is relatively low, it seems unlikely there would be a warranty or trial period, but many online markets have money back return policies.
