Is Hearing-in-a-Box an amplifier?
Our Hearing-in-a-Box product is a fully digital hearing aid, not an amplifier. Amplifiers simply make ALL sounds louder.

In addition, our hearing aids cover the full spectrum of sound up to 8000 Hertz, where speech sounds are found.

What if I only need one hearing aid?
In the event that you suffer from hearing loss in only one ear, you may be a candidate for a single hearing aid. However, in most cases, individuals with hearing loss greatly benefit from two hearing aids. Those with two hearing aids will experience greater sound clarity, and an overall higher quality of hearing.

Does Medicare provide any coverage toward the purchase of hearing aids?
Medicare does not offer hearing aid coverage, regardless of the type or manufacturer of the hearing aid.
