No Medical Exam Needed to Purchase Hearing Aids

While we encourage a proper relationship between you and a medical professional, you do not need a medical exam to purchase a hearing aid from us.  The FDA grants you the right to waive a medical exam.  The following paragraph is the statement that the FDA requires that you agree to before purchasing hearing aids online.

Waiver to Medical Evaluation Requirements: This is to inform you that the Food and Drug Administration has determined that it is in your best health interest to obtain a medical evaluation by a licensed physician, who specializes in diseases of the ear; then to be tested by an audiologist, or hearing aid dispenser utilizing established procedures and instrumentation in the fitting of hearing instruments. Note: Ordering a hearing instrument from this Website constitutes your acknowledgement and acceptance of this Waiver to Medical Evaluation Requirements.

What is the warranty on your hearing aids?

Our Hearing Aids are covered against defects in materials and workmanship for 90 days from the day you receive you your order,  after 90 days we fix most issues for one year at no cost, however you just pay for the round trip shipping.. If at our examination it is determined that the unit failed to work due to parts, materials, or workmanship we will repair or replace it (just pay a $20 priority return shipping and handeling fee). Protect your hearing aid from ALL types of unexpected or accidental damage with our Extended Warranty(can be added during checkout). 


60 Day Return Period

Hear-Better.com stands by its hearing aids and we know how important it is to get used to wearing hearing aids before making your final decision.   That is why we give you 60 days to return your hearing aid (return period starts the date of purchase and ends the date we receive your returned hearing aid). Read on for full details.

New Sounds Take Time to Get Reacquainted With

You will begin to hear sounds you have not heard in a long time when you start wearing hearing aids. Chances are, that you didn't lose your hearing overnight. It most likely developed gradually, over a long period of time. Now that you are wearing hearing aids, it will most certainly take time to become reaquainted with the wonderful world of sound. Keep in mind that there are also harsh noises to which you have grown unaccustomed. Perhaps you had no idea that your refrigerator was making that horrible squealing noise!  Soon, you will become once again accustomed to the sounds you've been missing.

Allow Time to Break in Your New Hearing Aids

Just like a new pair of shoes, your hearing aids need to be broken in.  Also, your ear needs a chance to get used to having a new partner.  You should wear your new hearing aids for short periods of time in the beginning. There may be a slight tenderness in your ear, or days when you feel overwhelmed with the new sounds that you are hearing. This is perfectly normal and should end as you become more accustomed to wearing your new hearing aids. The key is to remove your hearing aid for a while when you become uncomfortable.

Returns

 Your satisfaction is guaranteed. If you are not satisfied with your hearing aid, you have 60 days from the date of purchase to return it. The reason for this long trial period is that medical studies have shown that it takes approximately 3-4 weeks for someone to get used to the sounds of new hearing aids (even ones costing thousands of dollars!). If after trying them for 21 days you don't feel that your hearing aid are the best value in hearing aids, you may return them.  You will receive a FULL REFUND of the purchase price.  Return requests prior to trying the hearing aids for 21 days of USPS tracking delivered date and refused shipments will incur a ten percent restocking fee.

 

You will need a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number prior to returning any products.
