* This is NOT a hearing aid and
is not meant for everyday use.

The Solo is not your average hearing device.

The Solo is not a hearing aid, but a smart sound amplification solution. It was designed to amplify sounds that are inherently difficult to hear, while also suppressing background noise. It is intended for occasional use, such as during recreational activities, when having soft conversations, when discerning speech over distances, or when in noisy environments.

You can have the Solo personalized to your listening preferences with the Audicus Tuner app and tuning kit.

      Why are Audicus hearing aids so affordable?

      Up to 70% of the sticker price on hearing aids is made up of overhead costs and the bundling of services (such as unlimited checkups and free batteries). By offering the basics and operating online, Audicus is able to eliminate this extra cost altogether. We do not compromise on device quality: our digital hearing aids are made in Europe and are otherwise sold for up to $3,000 in traditional clinics.

      Where are Audicus hearing aids made?

      Our hearing aids are manufactured in the US and in Europe by leading private manufacturers. They are carefully selected by our audiologists, approved by the FDA, and have been successfully tested with patients. Our devices boast state-of-the-art digital hearing technology and are usually sold for thousands of dollars in traditional clinics.

    • See Answer

      Are hearing aids moisture resistant?

      Our hearing aids are nano-coated to be moisture resistant, but they are not waterproof. If you wear them while exercising or get caught in the rain one day, they will be resilient. Do not wear your hearing aids in the shower or pool, though – this will damage or completely kill the device. Think of it like your cell phone! If you exercise frequently or live in a hot and humid environment, you may want to consider investing in a hearing aid dehumidifier.

      Where can I purchase batteries?

      We offer batteries on the Accessories section of our Products page. You can also purchase batteries locally at a drugstore or wholesale club.

    • See Answer

      How long do the batteries last?

      Depending on the hearing aid model, your batteries can last from 3-4 days to almost 2 weeks! Our more powerful behind-the-ear hearing aids take size 312 batteries, which can last up to 200 hours. The smaller completely-in-canal hearing aid takes size 10 batteries, which can last up to 80 hours. Be sure to conserve battery life by opening the battery door of the hearing aid while you are not using it.

    • See Answer

      Could a hearing aid damage my hearing?

      Our hearing aids come with safe amplification limits and we require you to submit a copy of your hearing test so the amplification on the device is suited especially for you. If sounds feel painfully loud or you feel discomfort, call us immediately and we’ll address the problem. It’s our job at Audicus to make sure that you get the most out of your hearing aid!

    • See Answer

      What happens if I don’t treat my hearing loss?

      Leaving your hearing loss untreated will cause your hearing to gradually get worse. The longer the sound processing areas in your brain are left without stimulation, the higher the risk of serious conditions such as dementia and depression.

       

    • See Answer

      Are hearing aids covered by health insurance?

      Insurance plans rarely cover hearing aids. In most cases, Medicare and private insurance plans do not reimburse hearing aids. In fact, approximately 60%-70% of U.S. patients pay out of pocket. The price hurdle is one major reason why 75% of people with hearing loss don’t have hearing aids. If your insurance company covers hearing aids, we can provide you the necessary documentation to submit a claim for reimbursement – just reach out to us.

      Why do hearing aids cost so much at a clinic?

      Audiology clinics bundle many services into the cost of the hearing aid such as testing, fitting, programming, and warranties. The time that audiologists spend educating and counseling people also accounts for some of the cost. These extra services can make up to 70% of the sticker price!

      At Audicus, we believe that customers deserve more choice when it comes to hearing aids. The internet enables us to offer an affordable alternative to the traditional clinic without compromising quality or service. Learn more here.

      What is the traditional price of a hearing aid?

      The average retail price for one hearing aid in the U.S. lies around $2,000, but can go up to $4,000. Keep in mind that most people need two hearing aids so they pay twice as much for a pair.

      How common is hearing loss?

      If you have hearing loss, you’re not alone: in the U.S., it is the third most prevalent chronic health condition after arthritis and cardiovascular disease. It affects approximately 40 million Americans, or almost one in every nine people. It also tends to affect more men than women. The natural aging process and sustained exposure to loud sounds are the most common causes of hearing loss.

This program auto-adapts to allow the hearing aid to adjust to various listening environments. All accessories and warranties for the aSoul can be found in the Accessories section of the Products page.

    • See Answer

      Which hearing aid is closest to the aSamba?

      The aSamba comes closest to the Uno, our completely-in-canal hearing aid. The Uno is superior because it has a vent to reduce occlusion and a more advanced chip so that it addresses a wider range of hearing loss. If you need accessories or an extended warranty for the aSamba, please visit the Accessories section of our Products page.

      How do I keep my hearing aid clean and working well?

      Keeping your hearing aid clean is a crucial part of keeping it working well. Cleaning should be done as often as every day, to once every week, depending on how much earwax or dirt the hearing aid is exposed to. You can easily clean the hearing device with a soft cloth, gently rubbing the hearing device with the cloth to rid the device of any debris or wax.

      We also include complementary cleaning tools in every hearing aid/ hearing amplifier order. Depending on the device, this might be a cleaning brush, which looks like a miniature toothbrush and can be used to rid the device of pesky excess dirt, or a cleaning wire, which can be used on BTE open-fit devices like the Dia.

      If you want to continue to keep your Audicus product clean and properly outfitted, you can always purchase the necessary items to do so on our website. Accessory kits keep everything bundled and are customized for each device. These kits include cleaning supplies, like those mentioned above, as well as the product-specific interchangeable parts, like domes or tubes. Domes and tubes need to be changed every couple of months as they experience regular wear-and-tear. Using old, worn-out domes will decrease sound quality and could cause discomfort to the user, and could even lead to malfunction if kept on the hearing device for too long.

      Order accessories individually, as part of a kit for a one-time purchase, or as part of a kit via subscription. With our handy subscription service, users can receive pre-crafted accessory kits tailored to their device every three or six months, depending on customer preference. Plus, you get 10% off when you subscribe! See kits for Canto, Dia, and Uno devices.

      Is there a troubleshooting guide if I have problems with my Audicus hearing aid?

If you continue to have trouble after consulting the manual, give us a call at 888-979-6918. We’d be happy to walk you through a solution.

      What do I do if a hearing aid doesn’t help me?

      Give yourself 2-3 weeks to get accustomed to your new hearing aid, as you may hear new sounds that your brain hasn’t processed in a long time. You can also consult the instruction manual for common problems and basic troubleshooting. If none of this seems to help, call us at 888-979-6918, email contact@audicus.com, or chat online for one-on-one assistance. We want you to get the most out of your hearing aid! We’ll be able to assist you in advanced troubleshooting, and evaluating whether the aid needs to be sent in for reprogramming or repair. All of our hearing aids come with a 45-day money back guarantee, so trying them out is risk free.

      I don’t have my hearing test results. What do I do?

      Everyone’s hearing loss is different. Without a recent copy of your hearing test, we can’t program a hearing aid specifically for your hearing profile. We strongly encourage you to get a new hearing test done, or request a copy of your most recent test. Remember – your hearing test is a part of your medical record – so you are entitled to a copy. We require that your hearing test be from within the past year. If you are still unable to obtain a hearing test, contact us at 888-979-6918 or contact@audicus.com for alternative solutions.

      Can I wear glasses with my hearing aid?

      It is very common for our users to wear glasses and hearing aids. All of our models are compatible with eyeglass frames! If you order a behind-the-ear hearing aid, make sure you indicate this during checkout so we can include longer tubes with your order. Completely-in-canal (CiC) hearing aids will not interfere with glasses at all.

    • See Answer

      Will Audicus hearing aids address my specific hearing loss?

      We have audiologists in our office who program your hearing aids specifically to your hearing profile, so you’ll need to send us a copy of your hearing test from within the past year. You can have a hearing test done at an audiology clinic, ENT (ear, nose, and throat) doctor, or at some wholesale store locations. If you have a copy of your test, fax or email it to us at 888-498-5366 or test@audicus.com for a free consultation! Once we receive your test, our team will contact you directly and recommend the right hearing aid for you!

      Will Audicus hearing aids fit my ears?

      Every hearing aid comes with a free variety pack of differently-sized silicon end pieces (otherwise known as domes). These end pieces can easily be changed, so you can find the size that works best for you. We also offer different tube lengths for our BTE (behind-the-ear) models.
