Sonic Hearing Aids review
Have had these about 2.5 weeks, went to a family gathering and could understand my grandchildren!!! They are very comfortable and I have to keep checking to see if they are still on my ears. Everything sounds like it should, no distortion. I was outside and the wind was blowing hard, one of my grandchildren was walking ahead of me and I could hear and understand her quiet voice, even in the wind! Also, I have a wonderful audiologist who works to get my settings correct. Product and expert audiologist equals wonderful!!

Sonic Hearing Aids review
I purchased the Enchanted model a month ago, FANTASTIC. No problems hearing anything now. As a matter of fact my hearing is so clear and so crisp I have to ask people to please speak softer. I thought my appliances had received a surge of voltage when the ready beep went off on the microwave or when the refrigerator door open alarm was beeping. I could actually hear them now, crystal clearly. Absolutely no problems with them and I have very waxy ears. I simply clean the little ear piece and no problem. Batteries are great because I use the blue tooth feature all day at work; my batteries last 7 days. I have listened to other brands for much more money and wouldn't change a thing. I have already recommended two people and they love them too. $4,000 was well worth the cost compared to others at more or less money.
