great product
I bought this product for my wife. She is 34 and began loosing her hearing over the last few years. With no medical reason for the hearing lost and not knowing how to stop it, she was getting frustrated with not hearing normal conversation out of one of her ears. She always had ringing and buzzing. I took her to the ENT doctor and she saw the audiologist. We were going to get the hearing aid through them. the price was 1800.00 for the basic one. Our insurance would only cover 1250.00 and we would still be out of pocket for the rest. After I saw this, I call my insurance company to see if they would cover it and they said that they would cover the entire cost up to 1250.00. it was the best move we made. She placed it in her ear and her smile said it all. She was so happy that she was able to hear and the TV dose not have to be loud any more. Thank God for that. She is so ecstatic and was pleased that she was able to use the phone in that ear and able to hear everything. Great product for a great price. Thanks to Wal-Mart for carrying it and thanks to the company Simplicity for such a great product. Thanks, thanks, thanks.

I'm so dissapointed!!!!!
I've had two sets of these hearing aids, the first set the left ear completely went dead after the first week, so I turned them back into walmart and ordered a new set. The second set, the right ear went completely dead after the first day. The sound quality was great but what a let down when they failed to work. The only satisfaction I got from them was the no hassle turn in from walmart.

Best Money Spent

Last fall I was diganosed with hearing loss in both ears. At that time they wanted to sell me hearing aids and I said no I wanted a second opinon before I purchased anything. Well, time went by, and my kids and everyone around me was noticing I could not hear them when they spoke. My son told me about a hearing aid that was reasonably priced and that no one could hardly see. So I searched the internet and came across these hearing aids. I purchased one for my left ear and was very very surprised at how easy it is to maintain them, size was small (although I bought smaller tubes because I have small ears)and I can hear so so much better. This is definately a great hearing aid and well worth the money. This is a great alternative to having to spend thousand of dollars. They work well for me and I believe if you have mild to moderate hearing loss, they will do the same for you.

Seems to really help.

I first bought the in the ear model but they seem to make my ear hurt after a while so I returned them and got this behind the ear model, they are really great . I can hear good with them they're very comfortable and I don't even know I'm wearing them. The batteries are now 10 days old and still going strong. I wear them 10 to 14 hours a day. My hearing is such that I can't understand people often times, that has improved greatly. I can now listen to the TV without turning it up real loud, and I can hear the birds singing when I go outside. I think the hearing quality is a lot better with these behind the ear models then the one that fit in the ear. These Aids are one third the cost of the ones my brother bought and he doesn't like wearing his.That is my impression of these aids after 10 days now as far as long term will just have to wait-and-see. I tried the in the ear model for three weeks then return them and got these, they are my first experience with hearing aids, I have cut my what did you say by 90% ,So far I am happy happy happy.

Best purchase I ever made for myself.

Have been very happy with the hearing aid; it has made a drastic difference in my everyday life. I can now hear conversations more clearly and don't have to keep saying "What ? or "Huh ?", and don't have the TV blasting anymore. Sounds are very clear and I can not even feel it in my ear. Thank you, Walmart, for giving me an affordable alternative, as I just could not afford the $1500-$2000 one that my hearing professional suggested.

very satisfied so far

I have had my new Simplicity hearing aids for about a week, and I don't wear them every day. But they are comfortable, and increase my ability to hear noticeably, even on the low level. There are a few high pitched noises that I now hear that I didn't want to hear, such as the door which needs a spot of WD-40. Also, a very minor complaint, they should give you a blue container for left and a red container for right, but they gave me two reds. I have not yet followed the directions for daily cleaning. One day there was cerumen on the plastic tube which I picked off with my fingernail. The price was great, especially compared with the price the audiologist wanted to charge for the Widex brand she was pushing.

1. I open the battery door that shuts them off.
by Chuckitup
2. Leave battery compartment open (battery can stay in the holder)
by agingears
3. These aids have control knobs on them.
by CommunityAnswer
4. The only way to turn them off is to swing the battery door open. If you pull out the battery you can them close the battery door.
by Icanhearyounow
5. open the battery compartment. it's easy.
by oldtreefarmer
6. To turn the aid "off" simply pull out the battery holder. I leave the batteries in the holder so all I have to do in the morning is snap them back in place. Easy pleasy!
by SHIPCounselor
7. To turn the devices off simply open the battery door. The next morning, close the battery door to power-up the device. Because of the small size of the device there is not room for a separate on/off button, and not having an on/off button increases reliability.
by GeneralHearingInstrumentsSupport
8. Open the battery compartment, when you are ready to use them again shut it.

1. setting # 3
by agingears
2. The 4 settings are volume adjustments only.
by oldtreefarmer
3. The 4 memories for the Simplicity Smart Touch are actually used as 4 volume levels. We program the device with a sound shape to aid a high-frequency loss. The consumer would cycle through the 4 volume levels and use the one most suitable to his or her needs. Adjusting the sound shape can actually be done by the use of different size silicone domes. The amount we open or close your ear canal can change the way a consumer perceives the sound. Contact one of our technicians at 877-763-8327 to explain this in more detail.
by GeneralHearingInstrumentsSupport
4. Setting four
by BNova
5. These hearing aids don't provide amplification much above 4000 Hz, which leaves a lot of the high frequency range untouched. If you look on Page 22 of the Owner's Manual it shows the response curves of these hearing aids for the different settings. All the curves have identical frequency response. The only thing that changes from setting to setting is the amplification.
by thehikerguy
6. The response curves for the fours settings show an essentially flat response for all four settings, albiet at a diifferent amplificaion level.
by SHIPCounselor
7. 2 in one ear and 3 in the other. I get whistling feedback when I try higher settings but these settings work well.
