Better hearing may be a click away.

Hearing is an important part of your overall health and well-being. Not only does it keep you connected to the people and activities you love, it also helps preserve important connections in your brain that can help keep you sharp as you age.

If you have self-diagnosed mild-to-moderate hearing loss, you now have the option to purchase hearing aids without a prescription or appointment with a hearing care professional.

Is an over-the-counter hearing aid right for me?

New over-the-counter hearing aids offer a convenient way to boost your hearing, without needing to go to an appointment. Your hearing aids will be shipped directly to you and you’ll use a companion app to control and adjust your hearing aid settings. Use pre-set listening modes or create and save your own based on what you need. Some models even offer the ability to stream music and enjoy hands-free phone calls.

OTC hearing aids are best for those with self-diagnosed mild-to-moderate hearing loss who enjoy using technology like smartphones and are looking for the flexibility of finetuning settings themselves.

There are 2 types of OTC hearing aids that will perform better in different situations:
