In 2008, Hearing Assist set out to solve a problem: the high cost of available solutions for mild-moderate hearing loss.
Numerous barriers limit access to hearing health care, particularly the high cost of hearing aids (average cost is $3000-6000 for a pair), and lack of coverage by Medicare and other insurance companies.
…for a $5000 pair of hearing aids, approximately 2/3 of the cost actually covers an audiologist's time and services)
"The American Journal of Medicine", 2016
We began selling an innovative rechargeable hearing aid that was designed to amplify the frequencies most commonly associated with mild to moderate hearing loss (“one size fits most”), and launched via a popular television commercial featuring a well-known television star. That product was known as the Lee Majors Rechargeable Bionic Hearing Aid (“Bionic Ear”), and was the first FDA-registered direct to consumer hearing aid, as well as the first rechargeable hearing aid. Over the course of 10 years we sold hundreds of thousands of this and other quality hearing devices, without the high cost of middlemen or professional audiology services.
We learned a lot during the early years. We worked with the FDA to develop a waiver that customers could sign, we worked to comply with the various state laws that governed hearing aid distribution (laws which unfortunately helped to keep the market closed to efficient competition), and we developed an in-house US based customer service team with compassion, experience and knowledge in both our customer demographic and our product selection.
In 2017 we began working on new product offerings and strategies. Technology changed a lot over the years, and we now had improved product designs with longer battery life, better sound quality, more programs for use in various settings, and in general better customer satisfaction. In August of 2017, Congress passed the Over the Counter Hearing Aid Act, which determined that an official federal government-sanctioned over the counter hearing aid market will override the state laws that have helped to keep prices high for consumers across the country.
Hearing Assist is a business that sees an opportunity to improve people’s lives with great products at amazing prices, and with excellent customer service. We like to think we’re playing a part in improving the cost and quality of healthcare offerings in the US. We hope you agree, and invite you to explore and try out the products that we stand behind.
-"Thank you so very much for designing and providing a product that significantly improves quality of life for such a reasonable price! I am aware that you COULD charge SO much more for this product that offers the same results of hearing aids costing thousands more. Your customer service is also fantastic! We have always been able to speak directly with very friendly, personable and helpful representatives!" J. Terry, Salt Lake City, UT
-"they're the best hearing aids… I've got 2 sets which cost me $5,000 each and none of 'em have worked as well as these hearing aids. I'm really happy with them. I wish I had heard about them 10 years ago." J. Ingalls, Camas Valley, OR
-“I don't think anything has made me so happy" J. Parent, Van Buren, AR
-“There has been a lot of interest in my hearing aids...I am a senior citizen, I can say these are as good, if not better than the ones I paid $6,000.00 for." J. Morton, Birmingham AL
-"I want to thank you so much for having such good hearing aids. I'm 75 years old and can hear again on the phone" E. Choate, Duncan, OK
-"I have paid as much as $3000.00 for hearing aids and they are not any better than these" M. Cluff, Pleasant Grove, UT
- "We purchased this for my mother-in-law - who had decided to invest $4,000 in hearing aids a year ago, and has been dissatisfied with them. Well to her surprise - they are so much more comfortable, she loves that she doesn't have to change the batteries all the time - the charger is easy to use, and she is able to hear clearly!!!!!! She has been recommending them to her friends - Amazon Customer Review

This Agreement (the “Agreement”) sets forth the All-Inclusive Plan Terms and Conditions (“Subscription Terms”) or Purchase Terms and Conditions (“Purchase Terms”) between you (hereinafter referred to as “You”, “Your” and/or “Subscriber”) and Hearing Assist II, LLC (hereinafter referred to as “Company”, “We”, or “Us”).
By selecting an available option, completing the order form and paying the associated fee (“Fee”), You are subscribing to (“Subscribe”) the All-Inclusive Plan (“AIP”, “Plan” or “Subscription”) or making a purchase (“Purchase”). When You Subscribe or Purchase, You are agreeing to abide by the terms of this Agreement and represent and warrant that You (i) are at least 18 years of age, (ii) are legally able to enter into this Agreement with Company, and (iii) understand that the hearing aids provided under this Agreement are not intended for use by anyone under age 18. If You do not agree with the foregoing, You may not Subscribe or Purchase and must return any Company owned hearing aid(s) (“Device”) and all associated ancillary parts and materials (collectively “Equipment”) to Us. This Agreement is deemed to be received by You and is effective on the date on which You Subscribe or Purchase (“Effective Date”) and continues until terminated by either party.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Hearing aids from Hearing Assist II, LLC are Class 1 Hearing Aid devices under FDA Regulations per 21 C.F.R. Sec 874.3300. For mild to moderate hearing loss. Not suitable for anyone under 18 years of age. As with all medical issues, please consult a physician prior to use or if you have any questions. Individual results will vary, read all instructions/disclosures before use. IMPORTANT MEDICAL INFORMATION: Hearing loss may be a symptom of a more serious medical condition or the result of excessive wax build-up. A physician can treat these conditions. If you have not already done so, consult your doctor to rule out any of these medical concerns. If you have, or think you may have, any of the following conditions, we recommend consulting a doctor before purchasing any hearing aid: • Visible deformity of the ear • Fluid or drainage from the ear during the last 90 days • Sudden, rapidly progressing, or fluctuating hearing loss • Spells of acute or chronic dizziness • Hearing loss only on one side that has worsened during the last 90 days • Ear canal blockage, a lasting ear infection, or a plugged up fullness feeling • Excessive wax buildup or a history of excessive wax buildup • Pain or discomfort in the ear • Ringing in one or both ears within the last 90 days.
ALL-INCLUSIVE PLAN (“AIP”) TERMS
The best analogy we can offer when describing this innovative Worry-Free All-Inclusive Plan is your cable box. When you subscribe to cable service, you pay a monthly fee for the service and the cable provider connects a cable box to your television so that you can receive programming. If the cable box ever stops working while your subscription is active, you simply call the cable company and they try to troubleshoot the problem. If they determine the box to be the cause, you ship the box back or you take it to their service center and they replace it at their expense. When you cancel your cable service, you return the cable box to the provider. This is the same type of service you’ll receive with our new All-Inclusive Plan. When you enroll, we ship you a brand new rechargeable hearing aid(s) to use for as long as you subscribe. If the hearing aid or any of its parts stop working whether it is due to defect, damage, or normal wear and tear, we’ll send you a shipping label so you can send it back to us and send you a replacement. Plus, we’ll send you replacement ear caps and tubes whenever you need them. You can even get a new unit every 18 months so you’ll always have our latest technology, but your monthly cost stays the same. Because a hearing aid is a personal choice, we give you a 60 day in home trial. If the hearing aid doesn’t fit your need, call us during that trial period and we’ll send you a shipping label so you can send it back for a full refund. If you keep the hearing aid beyond the trial period, billing continues automatically each month, but if your needs change, you can cancel any time you’d like. Just call us and we’ll send you a return shipping label so you can send the equipment back to us. For complete details, please continue reading.

IMPORTANT LEGAL NOTICES Important Notice for Prospective Hearing Aid Users 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 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 medically evaluated and that you may be considered a candidate for a hearing aid. The physician will 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. A hearing aid dispenser should advise a prospective hearing aid user to consult promptly with a licensed physician (preferably an ear specialist) before dispensing a hearing aid if the hearing aid dispenser determines through inquiry, actual observation, or review of any other available information concerning the prospective user, that the prospective user has any of the following conditions: • Visible congenital or traumatic deformity of the ear. • History of active drainage from the ear within the previous 90 days. • History of sudden or rapidly progressive hearing loss within the previous 90 days. • Acute or chronic dizziness. • Unilateral hearing loss of sudden or recent onset within the previous 90 days. • Audiometric air-bone gap equal to or greater than 15 decibels at 500 hertz (Hz), 1,000 Hz, and 2,000 Hz. • Visible evidence of significant cerumen accumulation or a foreign body in the ear canal. • Pain or discomfort in the ear • Hearing Aids are not designed to restore normal hearing and will not prevent or improve a hearing impairment resulting from organic conditions. • In most cases, infrequent use of a hearing aid does not permit a user to attain full benefit from it. • The use of a hearing aid is only part of hearing habilitation and may need to be supplemented by auditory training and instruction in lip reading. • Do not attempt to use a hearing aid in a method not instructed within the accompanying manual. • Our hearing aids are not suitable for use by anyone under age 18. • Keep hearing aid out of reach of infants, children and pets as it may cause a choking or ingestion hazard. • Keep hearing aid away from moisture, direct sunlight, humidity, dust and heat such as a vehicle glove compartment, hair dryer, tanning bed, heat lamp, windowsill, etc. Store in its case, at room temperature, when not in use. • Do not wear hearing aid while sleeping, participating in vigorous exercise or other physical activity, showering/bathing, washing your hair, swimming, or engaging in any other activity during which hearing aid may get wet. • It is recommended that you do not wear hearing aid during any activity that calls for the use of hearing protection. • Due to the radio frequency interference caused by digital cell phones, you may not be able to use any hearing aid with a mobile phone. If, while wearing Device, you experience buzzing or other noises when using your cell phone, we recommend that you refrain from using this Device with a mobile phone or other devices that emit radio waves. • Avoid using hairspray or other hair care products while wearing hearing aid. • BUTTON BATTERY INGESTION – Hearing aid contains a button cell battery that if ingested may get lodged in the esophagus where it can cause severe burns, perforation of the esophagus, stricture formation and occasionally death. While most button cells pass through the body and are eliminated in the stool, an x-ray must be obtained immediately to ensure that the battery has gone through the esophagus into the stomach. If anyone swallows a battery you, your physician or emergency room staff should immediately call the National Button Battery Ingestion Hotline at 202.625.3333. The hotline is operated 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. DO NOT GIVE IPECAC. CHILDREN WITH HEARING LOSS - In addition to seeing a physician for a medical evaluation, a child with a hearing loss should be directed to an audiologist for evaluation and rehabilitation since hearing loss may cause problems in language development and the educational and social growth of a child.

If you keep the hearing aid(s) beyond the trial period, billing continues automatically each month, but if your needs change, you can cancel any time you’d like. Just call us and we’ll send you a return shipping label so you can send the equipment back to us.
