He has trouble picking up on normal conversations, and has to have the TV so loud to hear it but it drives everyone else crazy.
He had tried a hearing aid that was really expensive, but did not help at all.
After reading some reviews, I thought I would order these and give it a try.
These work fantastic. He can hear conversations it normal volume, and the TV is now back to normal volume as well. It is night and day difference.
I would highly recommend these for anyone facing a similar situation.
So all in all best deal on the planet for cheap aids.
My mother is 95 and im getting a set for her also. If she doesnt like them i have a back up set.
Ultra Ear ITC (GWP-UE2002) $27 for two
Ultra Ear BTE (GWP-UE1001-NXT2PK) $45 for two
Game Ear HD Pro Elite (WGE-XGE2B) $165
Game Ear HD Power Elite (WGE-XGE4B) $200
If you just want to hear sounds in the woods, the Ultra Ear models work well. However if you’re buying one to help understand human speech, you’ll probably prefer the Game Ear models. I’ll discuss them further down.
Ultra Ear ITC & BTE
From what I can tell, these two models are identical in terms of the sound quality you get from them. The only difference is that one is Behind-The-Ear (BTE) and the other is In-The-Canal (ITC). The BTE Ultra Ear is nearly twice as expensive as the ITC Ultra Ear, but falls out too easily - the opposite of what I expected - so I only use the ITC.
I found both the BTE and ITC useless for understanding human speech. I can hear voices clearly but have trouble understanding the words. Where the Ultra Ear models are outstanding is in the woods. I hear sounds in the woods clearly and the units are inexpensive enough that if I lose one, it’s not a catastrophe.
My main use for it is for hearing mountain bikers approaching on the trail, so I can step aside. Otherwise a person could be riding right behind me and I don’t hear them approaching. I’m a mountain bike rider myself in addition to being a hiker and runner. I know how easy it is to sneak up on people without them hearing me. The Ultra Ear ITC allows me to hear bikes coming so I can step aside in a safe place.
I only use the ITE model. The BTE has a terrible design that makes it difficult to keep in place. If you tip your head or something brushes against your ear, it will probably fall out. I haven’t found a way around it. The problem is caused by a difference in design from the much more expensive Game Ear HD Elite BTE models, which have a solid hook that loops over the ear and helps prevent the Game Ear from falling off. The Ultra Ear BTE does not have this. The hearing tube just loops over the ear, but this is not stable enough. The ITE model is easier to keep in my ear and cheaper to replace if I do lose it.
Game Ear HD Elite models
Walkers makes four BTE Game Ear HD Elite models (approximate May 2017 prices); I've owned two of them.
Game Ear HD Elite (WGE-XGE1B) $140: The most basic model. It lacks features found in the more expensive models and is the weakest. It’s only 40dB. The other HD Elite models are 50dB.
Game Ear HD Pro Elite (WGE-XGE2B) $165. I own this one. It has all the features of the WGE-XGE1B, but is 50dB and allows you to change frequency to detect higher or lower pitched sounds. So far I have not tried changing the frequency. The default works well for me.
Game Ear HD Comm HD (GWP-XGE3B) $169. This comes with a PTT mic loop. Otherwise it’s functionally the same as the WGE-XGE2B except for having three program modes (Communication, Enhancement and combined Communication and Enhancement). If you’re only looking to improve your hearing, the other three models are better choices.
Game Ear HD Power Elite (WGE-XGE4B) $200 I also own this one. It’s functionally is the same as the WGE-XGE2B except for two differences: you get an audible tone when you change volume up or down, and it has four program modes (General, Crowds, Nature and Power Boost). The modes are described in the user guide mostly in terms of how they benefit hunters. I haven’t found they make much difference to me and that changing modes is more of a hassle than it’s worth. However the audible tone (two beeps) when you change volume is very useful. For me this is the primary reason to chose the Power Elite over the cheaper models.
Replacing hearing tubes on Walkers BTE models:
So far I’ve only used Walker’s tubes, but I expect I’ll try a different brand when I need to buy more. I’ve gleaned the following information from other people’s reviews.
Other reviewers say that:
They have had success using Siemens tubes on Walker BTE units
Walker’s BTE units take a standard ⅛” diameter tube
There are two types of tubes you can buy: plastic and neoprene. Plastic is stiffer, neoprene is softer. Walker’s are plastic.
Some manufacturers use slightly different diameter ear tips than Walker. If your Walker tips don’t fit perfectly, it might be worth trying a different manufacturer’s
