    IMPORTANT NOTICE TO PROSPECTIVE WEARERS:
    This product is designed for adults and is not to be worn by individuals under the age of 18. Good health practice requires that a person with a hearing loss have a medical evaluation by a licensed physician (preferably a physician who specializes in diseases of the ear) before purchasing a hearing aid. Licensed physicians who specialize in diseases of the ear are often referred to as Otolaryngologists, Otologists, or Otorhinolaryngologists. The purpose of a medical evaluation is to assure that all medically treatable conditions that may affect hearing are identified and treated before the hearing aid is purchased. Following the medical evaluation, the physician will give you a written statement that states that your hearing loss has been evaluated medically and that you may be considered a candidate for a hearing aid. The physician may refer you to an audiologist or a hearing aid dispenser, as appropriate, for a hearing aid evaluation.The audiologist or hearing aid dispenser will conduct a hearing aid evaluation to assess your ability to hear with and without a hearing aid. The hearing aid evaluation will enable the audiologist or dispenser to select and fit a hearing aid to your individual needs. If you have reservations about your ability to adapt to amplification, you should inquire about the availability of a trial-rental or purchase option program. Many hearing aid dispensers now offer programs that permit you to wear a hearing aid for a period of time for a nominal fee after which you may decide if you want to purchase the hearing aid. Federal law restricts the sale of hearing aids to those individuals who have obtained a medical evaluation from a licensed physician. Federal law permits a fully informed adult to sign a waiver statement declining the medical evaluation for religious or personal beliefs that preclude consultation with a physician. The exercise of such a waiver is not in your best health interest and its use is strongly discouraged.
    WAIVER TO MEDICAL EVALUATION REQUIREMENTS:
    I acknowledge that:
    • I am at least 18 years old
    • I have been advised by walmart.com that the Food and Drug Administration has determined that my best health interest would be served if I had a medical evaluation by a licensed physician (preferably a physician who specializes in diseases of the ear) before purchasing a hearing aid
    • I do not wish to obtain a medical evaluation before purchasing a hearing aid

      Note: Ordering a hearing instrument from this web site constitutes your acknowledgement and acceptance of this "Waiver to Medical Evaluation Requirements"

    Excellent Hearing Aid. Easy to adjust, works fine

    Customer review by Hepotter

    5.0 stars by Hepotter

    I am extremely pleased with the Simply Slim Soft Touch hearing aid. I've used one now for about six months. It works! It doesn't just amplify all sound, it filters out unwanted noise, amplifies speech extremely well, and is invisible for all practical purposes, and I'm as bald as a rock. If you have hair, no one will ever know. I chose the "Smart Touch" push button model over the "Classic", because the tiny wheel to adjust volume was too small for my thick fingers. With the push button adjustment, I only have to touch the volume button, and I can select one of four pre-tuned volume levels. It performs with excellence. I only need the first level of sound...I've got three more if needed. There are two sizes, Standard, or Slim for smaller ear canals. I use the Slim. It fits in further, and is more comfortable. It's really nice to be able to watch TV and not annoy others by having the volume up too loud for others. Further, I only have one for my left ear. That works quite well for me for now. Eventually I will get the other one. If you are on a tight budget, just one aid offers tremendous improvement in hearing, and get you by quite nicely Remember to open the battery compartment, at nights, or if it is not in use. That is easy to do. That extends battery life substantially. I wear mine anytime I am around people, or watching television. A battery lasts me about one week. Your results will vary depending on how much you wear it. Also remember to use the small removal stem that protrudes at the bottom of the aid, and not grab another part of the aid to remove it. If you accidentally pull too hard on the battery door, you can possibly damage the unit. It is very durable though, if given reasonable care. I clean my ears out on a reasonable basis, this keeps ear wax out of the end of the unit, which has a filter to trap any wax or oil from getting into the device. It has an easily changeable filter replacement device. If the filter kit is not included with your aid, it is worth buying. The tiny battery is easily changed. Pull the door open, remove the old battery, and the new battery will drop in easily. The battery has a paper flap on the back, the bare side goes in the holder. This makes it easy to ensure it is installed easily and correctly. After it drops into the holder, just push it down gently, pull of the little paper flap, close the door. So very easy! That little paper flap makes handling the tiny battery very easy. I have bad sight, and clumsy fingers, so normal people will find it even easier than I did. I left mine on once, when I took a shower. I forgot I had it in. I simply took it out, toweled it off and no problems at all. You can't swim with it either, but if you accidentally get it wet, take it out, dry it off, and all should be fine. It fits well inside your ear, so rain is of no consequence. The one opening on the part facing out is so small, it is extremely difficult for any water to enter. Walmart was great in returning the first one, because it was too big for my ear canal. They didn't flinch when I found I had difficulty adjusting the volume wheel on the second one and refunded my money so I could order the push button model. You can't beat that quality of service, and I believe they understand you may need to go to the smaller size if you have a narrow ear canal. Now I have a comfortable fit, push button adjustable aid, that is good as the $1800 one the local hearing aid dealer wanted to sell me. I could order three of the Walmart Simply Slim Smart Touch hearing aids for less than the price of one of the other people's devices. The price was so good, I was tempted to buy three, but then I remembered...I don't have three ears!!! Although I'm extremely good looking, my wife says I'm not all that bright! Well, she got what she paid for! Regards, Hepotter

    I've worn hearing aids for a number of years. I ordered these to replace set that had gone bad. I was thrilled by the cost. They work well and are comfortable. The only problem that I've had is the top part - battery holder, volume button, etc.., came loose from the softer body after about 3 months. I had to be very careful opening/closing the battery compartment.

    Got this single device with the hope it would suffice, before trying two new full fledged expensive new hearing aids like those I started with 6 years ago. It (left ear only) completely meets my needs. I really like the entire one piece being completely inside my ear because I wear eyeglasses and did not like fumbling with the hearing aid extensions behind my ears when I removed my glasses and then put them on again. I have no problem with restaurant noise or even loud music near my church stage...I had these problems with my former hearing aids. I've always used my left ear for phone coversations, this device gives me no problem. I only use Level 1. Occasionally, I will experience some slight discomfort or soreness which I can attribute to my left ear canal being made smaller by long ago surgey. This minor problem is overcome by simply removing the device for a few hours.

    Can the volume be adjusted manually, or are there a handfull of preset volumes?

    • There are four preset volumes, the first level is enough for me. To change the level, just push the button and it toggles up to four and back to one.

    • It has four preset levels, it takes a simple touch to increase. I use only Level 1 for all settings and circumstances. I'm somewhat surprised by this because I have substantial hearing loss in this ear.

    • there are 4 presets, each time you push on the little button 1 push= 1 beep, 2 push= 2 beeps, 3 push=3 beeps 4 pushes=4 beeps each step is little louder , I keep mine on 1 beep since I have only loss 25% of my hearing in my left ear.

    • The volume is adjusted manually. Just a touch of the tip of your finger to a one of 4 tiny buttons to set your comfort volume. Takes just a second. Extremely easy

    • Volume adjustment is simple as pressing a button -- located at the top of the hearing aid, while it is in the ear. While not a "handful" of adjustments, but four, with each press increasing volume. Plenty of volume for all but the most profoundly hard of hearing (in which case you should see an audiologist or ENT MD).

    • If you get the "Classic" model, it has a rotary wheel to adjust volume. It's quite tiny and you use the tip of your finger. If you get the Smart Touch, you get a button that offers four volume levels. I tried both, and find the push button is way better for me. The four volume levels have been well selected. I use the first level now. That leaves me plenty of volume to go to later.

    • All SmartTouch units have a push button volume control with 4 preset memories. Classic and Hi Fidelity units are adjusted manually with a rotational volume control.
