Embrace Hearing Review

Embrace Hearing customizes hearing aids for each customer using hearing tests uploaded on their website or faxed to the company. Embrace Hearing offers three hearing aid models to choose from depending on your needs and budget.

The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders reports that roughly 29 million adults in the U.S. could benefit from wearing hearing aids. However, of adults aged 70 and over diagnosed with hearing loss, fewer than 30 percent have ever worn hearing aids. Among adults aged 20 to 69 diagnosed with hearing loss, that number drops to 16 percent. Embrace Hearing seeks to improve the hearing of any age group with their mission statement, “To hear better is to live better and to embrace hearing is to embrace life.”

Embrace Hearing Q&A

  • What is the difference between Embrace Hearing’s RIC and CIC hearing aids?
    Embrace Hearing’s H-300 and H-700 are both behind-the-ear RIC models or receiver-in-canal hearing aids. These hearing aids have a compartment with the battery worn behind the ear and a thin transparent wire connected to the receiver worn in the ear. RIC hearing aids are less visible than a traditional behind-the-ear model. CIC — completely-in-canal — hearing aids like Embrace Hearing’s C-650 are very small and have no compartment worn behind the ear. CIC models are nearly unnoticeable, but require more maintenance, as explained in our information about different types of hearing aids.

  • Will my Embrace Hearing aids be comfortable right out of the box?
    Yes, your Embrace Hearing aids come with everything you need to use them as soon as you receive the shipment. All Embrace Hearing models use an assortment of domes that fit in the ear canal and receiver wires, so no ear molds are required for fitting. It will take some time for you to adjust to hearing all the sounds you’ve been missing, which is the case for all hearing aids. Your brain needs to relearn how to ignore background sounds like footsteps, the turning of a page and other everyday sounds.

  • Do Embrace Hearing aids work for all levels of hearing loss?
    No one Embrace Hearing model addresses all hearing needs. However, you can find a solution among the company’s three hearing aids, whether your hearing loss is mild, moderate, severe or profound. If you have advanced or profound hearing loss, you’ll need Embrace Hearing’s H-700 hearing aid.

  • How does Embrace Hearing’s Speechbeam feature work?
    The Speechbeam upgrade works by zooming in on people speaking from the sides, front and behind the hearing aid wearer. Pulling in sound from all directions produces a more natural and brighter sound in noisy environments.

  • What if my Embrace Hearing aids need to be reprogrammed or repaired?
    Embrace Hearing provides free reprogramming services during the warranty period. After the warranty expires, Embrace Hearing can program and repair your hearing aids, for $150 plus the cost of shipping and with a 48-hour turnaround. However, the company provides videos on the website so you can learn how to maintain your hearing aids yourself.

Conclusion

Embrace Hearing sells high quality, affordable hearing aids with several solutions for improving hearing. The three hearing aid models are all built with state-of-the-art technology to offer superior performance for any level of hearing loss. Embrace Hearing ranks highly with consumers for product quality, affordability and highly responsive customer support, making the company a trusted hearing aid provider.

Embrace Hearing Customer Reviews

Embrace Hearing - 5/5 stars

Submitted on 12/10/2018 by John M.

I had seven-year-old hearing aids that was out-of-date technology, and I missed a lot of what was going on but with having Embrace hearing aids, it’s been better. It can pick up on a whole lot of what I was missing. And also, they were priced a little bit less than what I could get the high-end hearing aids anywhere in Little Rock, Arkansas so, I appreciated it. Everybody at Embrace was very nice and very timely in doing things. At first I had where you had full volume adjustment on each ear. When I got home, I decided that I would rather have one ear where it did the programs and then the other ear where I can lower the volume if I needed to, in case something was too loud. Since I've gotten that done, I've never changed anything. My unit has four different settings but I haven't used the other two controls.
