About Eargo

Eargo has been in the market since 2015, making them relatively new to the hearing health technology industry. They are headquartered in San Jose, California. All their devices were designed by Florent Michel, an ear, throat, and nose surgeon, made for people with mild to moderate hearing loss in the high-frequency range. The hearing aid was inspired by a fly fishing feather, making the hearing aid soft, flexible, and self-adjusting. In addition, they are self-fitting, so there are two designs that fit most ears. 

The hearing aid is approved by the FDA, the Food and Drug Administration, and they classified the product as a medical device. This is significant since most insurance policies will cover the cost, including federal health insurance.

Hearing aids come with four settings built-in; Phone, outdoor, TV, and group settings. All you have to do is tap your ear twice to move from one setting to the other, and the hearing aid will let you know which mode you are on. In addition, the latest model can be connected to a smartphone app, and you'll get to control it from there.

The Better Business Bureau gave Eargo a rating of A+. They have also "answered" about 87 customer complaints.

How Eargo Works

1. Find out if Ergo is the best fit for you

Take the screening hearing check to see if you are a match; this hearing aid is designed for people with mild to moderate high-frequency hearing loss.

If you have any questions or concerns, book a telecare checkup. Then, you'll be able to talk to them directly by phone or video. 

2. Order your device

Shop around and choose the device that best fits your needs; once you find the right one, you can order it via phone or online. Eargo hearing aid will arrive within 2-3 days. You'll get a 45-day money-back guarantee, so you won't have to overthink the purchase; if you like it, you keep it; if not, you can send it back and get a full refund. 

3. Recieve your device

Your Eargo will arrive fully charged and ready to use; although they are easy to use, someone will be there to help you adapt to using them. You will be paired with a licensed hearing professional to help you get adjusted; they can access the device remotely and help answer any questions you have.

If you have more questions, you can go through their website and watch the series of short videos. 

What comes in the Eargo Kit?

The hearing aid comes in a kit, and it includes: 

  • User manual
  • Left and right hearing aids
  • Charger with a USB cord
  • Portable container
  • Cleaning brush and cloth
  • Extra wax guards and a wax guard changing tool 
  • Extra Flexi TetraPalms

How to charge and clean your Eargo device

Before you start using the hearing aids, you must make sure there is no wax build-up; this is because wax interferes with the performance of your hearing aids. If you can't remove all of the wax on your own, you could go to a medical professional, where a nurse can clean it. 

The hearing aid must be cleaned periodically; when you make a purchase, you'll get a kit that has a cleaning brush and cloth. When you charge your device, make sure to wipe it clean. The internal wax guard has to be changed once every 3 to 6 months, depending on how much wax you have built up. You'll get an extra wax guard with a wax guard changing tool to help you replace it. The Flexis also needs to be changed every couple of months.

The product is designed to be taken out and charged overnight in the portable charger provided to you. You need to charge it for six hours to use it for 16 hours. The charger doesn't have to be constantly plugged into the USB cord, but you'll have to make sure to recharge it on a weekly basis fully. Eargo has made it easier to place your hearing aids inside the portable box by adding LED lights.
